1.0 out of 5 stars from the best to the worst, 27 Jan 2010
This review is from: Halliwell's The Movies that Matter (Paperback)
Halliwell's (until recent editions) used to be the undisputed authoratitive, comprehensive and definitive guide to the movies. But unfortunately, under the new editorial regime, these attributes have successively been compromised at the expense of brevity. This latest edition has been scaled down to the point where it has effectively become useless. For example, many of the older 4 star films which remain historically significant have now been ommitted - a fundamental oversight that undermines the publisher's claims for the guide's greatness. There is, for instance, no longer any room for films of the stature of, amongst others, 'Being There', 'The Tin Drum' and 'The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith'. This latest edition is a travesty.
