Offering a garden-variety of carefully cultivated lists, this suggestion guide for the at-home movie viewer incorporates classic films with those more obscure for a full menu of watch-worthy films. Online streaming services might present their own recommendation services, but little is provided about the film beyond a snippet description and further research is usually required. This all-in-one recommendation source provides descriptions, a capsule review, trivia, and helpful tips on where to locate the movie—whether in DVD format or online. Hosting a mini-film festival or coordinating the programming for a film class or club becomes an easy undertaking with this guide on hand, or it could simply be the solution for any given Friday night. Such figures as authors, film bloggers, and columnists contribute to the suggestions, incorporating the respected views of people that include Julia Sweeney, Barry Gifford, and Bilge Ebiri.

Among those contributing to this book are:
Bilge Ebiri (popular film blogger)
Barry Gifford (author of Wild At Heart)
Bill Ott (Publisher of Booklist)
Julia Sweeney (Saturday Night Live cast member and monologist)
Zoe Trope (author of YA memoir Please Don’t Kill the Freshman)
Ken Vandermark (MacArthur "genius" grant-winning jazz musician)
Eugenia Williamson (pop culture columnist for The Boston Phoenix)

About the Author:

Rob Christopher is an author and a writer for Chicagoist.com. He has written articles for such publications as the Chicago Reader and American Libraries and is the author of the book 100 Spinning Plates. He is the coeditor of the documentary Kosher Messiah and an active contributor to CINE-FILE, an independent, nonprofit web resource. He lives in Chicago.

From Booklist:

Remember The Book of Lists and its numerous sequels? This is a smaller, more focused spin on that idea: two-dozen lists of movies. Christopher, who writes about film (and other things) for the Chicagoist website, enlists the assistance of several contributors, who include novelist and screenwriter Barry Gifford, Booklist editor Bill Ott, and actress Julia Sweeney, to offer readers a choice assortment of topical lists: box-office disasters that didn’t really deserve to flop, movies about doomed romances, films guaranteed to spark lively discussions, late-night horror flicks, movies that turned out better than the books they were based on, and westerns that aren’t really westerns (Steven Spielberg’s Duel, for example). It’s an imaginative and often thought-provoking book—Zoe Trope’s Seven Reasons to Love Nicholas Cage really does make us take another look at the frequently mocked actor—and it has a little bit of something for everyone while at the same time managing to avoid the usual staples of best-of lists and the same familiar titles you see in a multitude of other books. --David Pitt
