My Take on the Book
This was a great book that has so much information on the movies that they are sharing. My wife and I have already been going through this to see what movies we have already seen and started requesting movies that we have not seen from our local library. It is going to take us some time before we see them all, but with such a complete guide you will rest assured that you will find some amazing movies that you MUST watch before you die. I appreciated that this was not just a list of movies. Each movie that is shared is explained in depth and you also get some very cool information about the movie itself. This book was a complete resource that anyone who loves movies will completely enjoy!
