Here's hoping his recovery goes by quickly !
Would like to know when the 2008 edition is likely to be published?
First, most people probably skip the introduction to books, but this one, written by Ebert himself, is an absolute must read. It contains a lot of information about the movie industry as well as touches on Ebert’s dislike of 3D, which I knew about previously and agree with. I have a strong dislike of 3D movies too.
Next, this book is big and probably not one you would sit and read straight through, cover to cover unless you are a serious cinophile like Michael Bolton. Ebert reviews everything from blockbuster, action movies to kids movies to small independent films.
The book is not just reviews though. There is a discussion of top movies for 2005. Ok, this is actually a list of mini-reviews. There are also 12 interviews with stars including Nicholas Cage, Al Gore, and Steven Spielberg, though they are not shown as a typical Question Answer format, but as an essay of “things Ebert learned talking to x star”.
After the interviews are Essays, which I am not sure where they came from. They are almost like blog posts from Ebert talking about different movie related topics. For example, one of the Essays is defending his selection of Crash for best movie of the year once he hears another Critic, Scott Foundas from the LA Weekly, claims that Crash is actually the worst film of the year. In fact, Crash is discussed in multiple Essays.
After the Essays are Question and Answers from fans to Ebert.Read more ›
