Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Radio Times Guide to Films 2013 (Paperback)
One of the most useful reference works about films returns boasting 500 new entries in its total of 23,000 film reviews. The full spectrum of film - from obscure classics to the blockbusters of tomorrow - is covered in here, along with an invaluable list of award winners and an index of works categorised by directors and actors - in short, what any reader should demand from their film guides. There's also an indication as to whether a film is available on DVD or Blu-ray or both - a nice touch making for easy online searches and store-scouting. The book is a mighty tome - weighing in at some 1600 pages - and some of its reviews will invariably divide readers, but it's still the most up-to-date reference book (at the time of writing this review) and highly recommended for those who prefer their film compendiums to be relatively plain-speaking in their approach.
An ideal Christmas gift - and it still doubles as a useful doorstop.
