ReelViews, based on the popular film site, is unlike any other movie guide on the market. Instead of the usual cumbersome, encyclopedic histories of film offering a "star-and-a-sentence" overview of every movie ever made, ReelViews offers full-length reviews of only the best 1,000 movies from the 90's and beyond. It's like taking all the best films from the "New Releases" shelf at your favorite video store from the last ten years. Even better, ReelViews is organized by movie category, the way people really use the video store. From Action-Adventure to Comedy, Dramas to Westerns, you can read full reviews of all the movies you really want to see -- and only the movies you really want to see. ReelViews is the ultimate movie lover's guide to the video store. Book jacket.
