Synopsis: A renowned film critic offers a no-holds-barred account of all that is great and all that is terrible about cinema Outspoken, opinionated, and hilariously funny, the critic who carved out a career in print, radio, and television based entirely on the belief that The Exorcist is the greatest movie ever made and that the Pirates of the Caribbean films should be buried in a very deep hole where they can never bother anyone ever again tackles the real questions that serious filmgoers need answered: What's wrong with the modern movie business? How can we make it right? If blockbusters make money no matter how bad they are, then why not make a good one for a change? How can 3-D be the future of cinema when it's been giving audiences a headache for more than 100 years? Why pay to watch films in theaters which don't have a projectionist but do have a fast-food stand? And, in a world in which Sex and the City 2 was a hit, what the hell are film critics for? This hilariously forthright, enthusiastic look at the state of film today will delight all film obsessives.

About the Author: Mark Kermode is a film critic and broadcaster who was named by The Screen Directory as one of the Top Ten Film Critics of All Time. He writes for the Observer and Sight and Sound, is the author of It's Only a Movie and the BFI Film classics guides The Exorcist and Shawshank Redemption, and his podcasts are downloaded by more than 100,000 people per week.
