Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2006

Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2005 - 960 sivua
This has been a big year for Roger Ebert. In January 2005 he received TelevisionWeek's Lifetime Achievement Award, and this summer he will be honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. It seems only fitting that his Movie Yearbook is annually regarded as the best place to turn to learn about and choose a movie. The 2006 volume contains all Ebert reviews written from January 2003 through June 2005. That includes blockbusters such as Million Dollar Baby and The Aviator along with surprise hits like Sideways, and such moving films as Hotel Rwanda and Vera Drake. (Oh, yes, and Brown Bunny as well.) Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2006 also includes all Ebert interviews and essays for the year, the biweekly Questions for the Movie Answer Man, and Ebert's well-respected film festival coverage. As if those weren't enough to keep any film buff glued to this book, it also contains a list of all movies previously appearing in Ebert's Video Companion or Movie Yearbook with the critic's star ratings.
