So, I'm a Doctoral candidate in film, and I've basically been in academia most of my adult life, in that time I've seen several media/film dictionaries, most of which are ok but all too often not nearly comprehensive enough. This one is fantastic, geeky I know, but I loved seeing the word 'discredited' in some of the definitions - it's all too easy to see a theory or phrase defined and use it without realising the wider context. That it links with the web is also really useful pointing you to reputable sites that you may have overlooked in your research. All in all, a good buy, I'd thoroughly recommend it.
