  1. Really terrific absorbing reading.It s heavily focused on 80s films since it s a collection of reviews but there are also hilarious and insightful essays about, well, going to the movies.This really needs a reissue Wonderfully witty.

  2. I loved this book Even though I actually disagreed with many of his reviews, I still loved Crisp s breezy, witty, old fashioned style What a wit Thoroughly delightful stuff.

  3. very funny, starts off with a kind of a history of movies from a movie goers point of view, from silent movies to the eighties.
