Movie magic 27 Jun. 2013
By Dr. Wilson Trivino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am a movie fan and enjoy a good one. Nell Minow's book Movie Mom: 101 Must-See Movie Moments is sure to be a classic. This book is the perfect resource for any person who likes to get a grasp of many interesting facts in a short period of time, sure to become an expert of movie trivia.
What I most liked about this book is that it exposed me to many older films that I had either never heard of or knew the name but did not know what it was about. Of course, many of the contemporary ones I had viewed.
Minow did an excellent job of weaving also similar plots or stories into the written dialogue. The memorable lines and synopsis format makes for a quick read or a handy reference.
Not only have I been able to learn about 101 movies, it has set me on an odyssey to experience them all. I give the book a thumbs up.

Treasures from Hollywood and Beyond 9 July 2013
By Tom Sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"101 Must-See Movie Moments" is a treasure-trove of the author's favorite moments from motion pictures big and small.

Author Nell Minow knows her movies, too. She has written for prestigious national publications, and her weekly column on film & DVD releases can be found on Beliefnet.com, or at moviemom.com.

This is certainly an impressive resume, but anyone can start writing film criticism today, and perhaps become successful at it. There are plenty of new theatrical releases and DVD's each week to dissect, and a good, insightful writer could find an audience somewhere in the global media world.

However, don't think for a second that a newbie could write "101 Must-See Movie Moments" successfully. Nell Minow is old-school, like a critic should be. She has seen untold thousands of films--Hollywood hits new and old, plus art-house and foreign films--and she draws upon her wealth of experience and critical skill to present this conversational and enlightening collection of gems.

Many of the moments she chooses are from movies I love, and I sat here nodding and smiling. "Yeah. That was a great choice." Others are moments I hadn't singled out as special in films I've seen, and in reading her explanation, I agreed with her. Sometimes, I'd never even heard of the movie, and other times, she and I disagreed, not on the film but on the "must-see moment" (The General was one of those). The beauty of watching movies is that it's a shared experience: people can respond very differently to the same scene.

Most readers will recognize a majority of Minow's film choices; some will know more, some less. Written differently, this could have left many readers out in the cold. However, each installment begins with a description of the film's plot, and sets up the particular moment wonderfully. In a few paragraphs, Minow provides a context for "the must-see moment" so that it makes sense, regardless of whether the reader has seen the movie.

A lovely side-effect (hopefully!) is that readers will not only look back on films they've seen, but--having read Nell Minow's book--add a few (or a few dozen) titles to their "must-see" lists.

This book works so beautifully, because Nell Minow writes in a friendly and conversational style. She doesn't assume her reader is a film expert, so she doesn't write that way. She writes for normal people who love movies and love to talk about them, even if they don't know their chiaroscuro­ from a hot rock.

This is a marvelous book, and a great gift idea if you have a film buff in your world.

Highly Recommended. (Now, I'm off to buy The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Paramount Centennial Collection))

Lots of fun! 29 May 2013
By Brandon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I downloaded this when it was free on the Kindle Fire for a brief moment, but I want to make it absolutely clear: after having read it, it is well worth the purchase, and you should not hesitate to do so. Each small write up is only a few pages at most, and you can quickly and easily read a handful here and there. At some points I would read a section or two in a few days and other times I would sit down and go through 30 or so pages. Each write up brought back fond memories of the films I have seen, and when I read something outstanding about a film I have yet to see, I added it to my list of movies to watch and will eventually get to. Nell Minow clearly writes as a true fan of film that is sitting with you at a table just 'hanging out' and discussing things, and for a book like this, it works wonderfully. Again, if you consider yourself even a small fan of films, this is a must buy and worth every penny.

A Treat to Read 3 Oct. 2012
By CRR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What a treat to have this book of movie moments from Nell Minnow. I started to follow her reviews so that I would learn about movies for my now 6 year old son. But I've grown to count on all her reviews. This book has any number of wonderful stories about favorite movies of mine. And now I'll have some to add to my queue! If you enjoy intelligent discussion of film, with a light touch, this book is for you.
