Book Description: "Reflections Of A 'B' Movie Junkie" is a tribute to the old "B" Movies of the Saturday Matinees of yesteryear. Actually, it is more of a homage to them, or at least (6) genres of those film types, that were so prevalent back in primarily the '40's and '50's. Their research and discussion, however, in some instances, dates all the way back to the beginning of the "talkies" of motion picture content, and can extend in the other direction, into the early '70s. These (6) genres include the popular "B"-Western, The Comedy Teams, The Jungle Adventures, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Horror and the Serial, or Chapter Plays, so popular with the week-end Matinee crowds back then. These film-types filled up our Saturday afternoons (and evenings) with exciting adventure, curious wonder, spine-tingling horror, and non-stop action. Often filmed on a shoe-string budget, and in a limited time-frame, many of these "classics" came to be looked upon by many fans as being so truly bad, that they were good, (in a bad sort of way) ! They are thus categorized, reviewed and discussed, for the most part, in a lovingly personal style, especially when compared to the film types we are subjected to in today's market. They had their place in film history, and that time is long since gone. But, for some of us, they have never been equaled, which, for others, may indeed be a good thing.

Time Out's extraordinarily strong international coverage includes award listings for the Berlin, Venice, and Cannes festivals as well as the Oscar winners since 1927. Fully cross-referenced with extensive indexes covering films by country, genre, subject, director, and actor, this is the ultimate guide for movie lovers of all inclinations. Combining a wealth of practical information -- director, cast, alternative titles, running time, release date -- with thirty years of authoritative analyses from 207 Time Out reviewers, this A-to-Z directory delivers honest, incisive, informed, and contentious criticism. The seventh edition includes 700 new reviews from every genre of world cinema and, for the first time, a readers' poll of all-time top-ten films.
