Explore the Film Wizardry of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Review: This book is amazing. I love all of the interactive features like wanted posters, the map of the magical world and the wand permit. It is a beautiful, very sturdy book and an amazing collector's item if you were a fan of the Fantastic Beasts movie. It features details about the characters, costumes and many of the props of the movie. Read more

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Visual Companion
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Visual Companion

Review: It is not comprehesive enough in terms of characters coverage. No information about the war between the dwarves and the dragon, no information about the war between the dwarves and the Orcs. I personally do not think it is a visual companion which cannot leave the readers especially those who have watched the film a positive impression. If you compare the similar essential visual guide published by DK for other films and other stories, DK is much much better. I hope the publisher of The Hobbit... Read more

and Selling Your Script (Expanded & Updated) - A Complete Guide to Writing

Review: Every screenwriter should start by reading this book and using it as guide throughout their writing. The title says it all, it really is a Screenwriter's Bible, the best book written on formatting and guiding the writer through the process to tell their story in a format that will sell. Read more

Passings of More than 125 American Movie and TV Idols

Review: Full of inaccuracies, you have to fact-check every story. Quite a few grammar errors. Anyone who's been in the military will spot unlikely events. The information value is learning which stars died an unnatural death. After a while I just stopped reading the book's explanation and just went online for facts. Read more

Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia

Review: Ok, parent view: book is holding up well and made a long wait at a doctor's office go just fine...As a Star Wars loving parent, it's accurate and helps with the "stop watching TV and go read a book!" that has to happen from time to time.

If you let your kids watch Star Wars, then you've got nothing in this book to stress about.
Now, in the words of the ten-year-old (without any editing):

First I wish that the writers had put more info on the planets that... Read more

The Wes Anderson Collection

Review: Purchased this as a gift for a friend that absolutely adores Wes Anderson, but unfortunately she already had a copy. I ended up keeping the book for myself and it now rests happily as a centerpiece on my bookshelf. It's also great as a coffee table book. Read more

2nd Edition - In the Blink of an Eye - A Perspective on Film Editing

Review: Murch is considered the most influential and effective editors of the last 50 years, and with good reason. He worked on Apocolypse Now, The Godfather trilogy, and many other films. He also successfully made the transition from film to digital media, and had a deep understanding of both the artistic and practical considerations of editing. The book is an adaptation of a lecture, and it shows in the conversational style. Read more

Episode I - The Phantom Menace - The Making of Star Wars

Review: If you found the movie in any way disapointing, and even if you didn't, read this book! It's way better than the movie, which, while enjoyable was also confusing at some points, and I found it very difficult at times to connect with the characters. Not so with this book. Anakin especially was well done; I found him extremely annoying when I watched the movie, but here not only can we finally see what makes him so special, but we can even relate to him. Qui-Gon as well is much better portraye... Read more
