By For Tomorrow 24 TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 July 2016
Format: Flexibound
This is a really handy little book for all dedicated movie buffs, but please note that it was previously published under the title 101 Cult Movies You Must See Before You Die in 2009.

Here, picked by a variety of contributors and edited all together by Steven Jay Schneider, are 101 'cult movies' from across the world spanning from 1928's surrealistic film 'Un Chien Andalou', to the 2013 UK flick 'Under the Skin'. Every film is arranged in sections by decade, and a wide, balanced variety of genres are included.

A lot of these movies were already familiar to me including British classics like 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show', 'Withnail and I', and Danny Boyle's 'Shallow Grave', but many of them are very obscure, which only adds to the fun of discovering new pictures to watch. Each one is presented in the book with it's original poster artwork, and there is the basic information regarding director, producer, screenplay, cinematography, music, and main cast, before a well-written short study, which do contain a lot of spoilers.

If you wish to expand your movie knowledge, and find some new favourites, '101 Cult Movies: You Must See Before You Die' is a very useful, entertaining piece of work, which makes for an ideal present.

Brought this for my boyfriend as a Christmas present. I hadn't intended to buy this I just came across it in a search for something else, I thought it looked interesting and brought it as I did feel it was a good guide. Obviously he has not seen it yet but I took the liberty of having a look through it. The book goes through the decades of films you must see. This book has a lot of information about the films it suggests you watching and opens your mind up to new films. Well worth it for any film buff!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Refresher. 18 Nov. 2013
By Michael P. McParland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a really nice collection that tells you about some movies that are more obscure that you may like or remind you of some you may have forgotten. There are a few in there that I feel don't fit cult status more just quirky and that the reputation and familiarity are too big. I really would recommend this though as a way to maybe find some new and old titles to broaden your horizons.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not so much 22 Dec. 2012
By M. Robinosn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Relied too heavily on arty-foreign films instead of the exploitation genre. Could have been far better. These format of reference guide seems to be popular and many times, there's not suffiicent content to present 500 must-eat vegetables (!) But CULT films don't fall into that category. Any title by Danny Peary on the subject, FAR superior.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cult Movies for the Fan 31 Jan. 2015
By El Jimbo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Not entirely a good book, but definitely interesting. I got this book because I have an interest in the quirky films, ones that may not be blockbusters on the big screen, but have a definitely avid band of apostles who preach the wonders of said movies. This collection of two page essays for 101 films in that genre is good with one major (or minor, depending on your viewpoint) exception. The essays are written by several authors, most of whom are harmless. The one exception is the one identified as GC-Q. This particular author comes off as sounding like a pompous blowhard professor you had in college. A check of the index in the back identifies him as Garrett Chaffin-Quiray (even his name sounds pretentious...) and indeed, he is a professor in college. The worst part about his essays is he even makes movies that I have seen and thoroughly enjoy sound like something I wouldn't like. By the time I got halfway through the book I was able to identify his entries within the first sentence or two.
