Movie Makers: 50 Iconic Directors from Chaplin to &hellip by Ian Freer
3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 4 Feb 2014
I know its subjective but the book could have been improved by excluding some of the earlier Directors and bringing it up-to-date with more current iconic Directors. Where is James Cameron? Guillermo del Toro? Clint Eastwood? Oliver Stone?
Having been authored by the Assistant Editor of "EMPIRE" I would have expected more in-depth information about each of the Directors and a greater list of their filmography.It also could have been improved with some colour-plates of the Directors and the films they were involved in. Overall a disappointing book.
Porn King by John Holmes
Porn King by John Holmes
2.0 out of 5 stars Fact or Fiction?, 13 July 2012
A poorly written "autobiography" containing several grammatical errors. Purportedly transcribed from audio tapes recorded by John Holmes but it appears to be more the fantasy workings of his "devoted" ex-porn wife Misty Dawn (Laurie Holmes).
Short on substantiated facts and if you are wanting more of the "King" himself you are better to watch DVD's "John Holmes Exposed", "John Holmes, The Man, The Myth, The Legend", or "Wadd: The Life and Times of John C Holmes".
An over-priced publication which annoys me that Laurie Holmes is no doubt receiving unjustified royalties from.

2.0 out of 5 stars 80's Porn Pictures, 11 July 2012
More of a magazine format of 10 better-known porn performers of the 80's. Is very disappointing as there is almost a total absence of text. Would have been improved with captions to each photograph depicting which movie or magazine the photos were taken from.Only 8 pages of coloured photos and the rest (about 300) are black and white.
I note that Volume 2 is to be released shortly so hope this is an improvement on Volume 1.
Some of the performers (note: I haven't said actors) include Linda Lovelace, Seka, and Marilyn Chambers.
