5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for best movie eva!! 20 Jun 2007
I watched the Red Dwarf movie last week on DVD, and it's so good I got this book. Ellard, the creator of Red Dwarf, put in much more than just the script- explanations of why they decided to give Rimmer a mohawk for half the movie, for example, started with the wrong costume being sent to the studio (filmed in Sydney, of course)!. Also included is drawings for the unfilmed 'Lister streaks in space' scene, and also of the unfilmed scene when Kochanski sleeps with Cat, to Lister's surprise and with much hijinks.

Interviews with the cast include wonderful quotes, such as Charles' "I needed some crack money fast", Barrie's "I was told I would be riding a Harley Davidson", John-Jules' "Wow, a script!", and Lovett's "I hate everything in this movie".

Two thumbs up for this wonderful book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Written by a performing monkey?? 11 April 2008
Dear oh dear, what can I say??? I was asleep after the first five pages or so. When I woke up and carried on I wish I hadn't, it really is THAT bad. You want good information the Red Dwarf Movie, you won't get it here.

It's just boring, dreary, self-indulgent-to-the-point-of-nausea anecdote after anecdote, none of which are enough to entertain THIS Red Dwarf fan, so who knows how a general reader would get on. Maybe if they had tears in their eyes due to openly weeping at the sheer tedium of the volume, then at least they could admire the psychedelic patterns that hit their retina, the words too blurred and streaked as the salty fluid warped the sunlight reflected off the paper. I say 'paper', what in the holy heckfire is this book printed on anyway?? It feels more like that tracing paper-style toilet roll you get in underground public conveniences. I suppose it's quite fitting, although I wouldn't even wipe mine with this rubbish. Talk about cheap publishing!

A real smug wannabe must have been employed to write this. I use the word 'write' loosely. Frankly I'm surprised this book is allowed to exist. After all, it is a companion to a movie that genuinely DOES exist. A movie I would definitely give 5 stars, on par with some of my favourites like Atmos, Rose and The Shadow Proclamation, not to mention the Medusa Cascade.

I could write a much better companion myself, if I could be bothered. Tragic. Dismal. Horrible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Black and white??! 1 Dec 2007
By Lenitas
All I can say is,

a movie *photo* book should not be entirely in black and white.

I'm giving it two stars for the, well, pretty interesting behind-the-scenes texts and the costume close-ups.
