Any compilation of the best of anything is, by definition, a person's opinion. Some of my all-time favorites are here, such as Mary Poppins and West Side Story. Other inclusions are more curious, such as Moulin Rouge which was so frenetic that I couldn't watch it, and Disney's Snow White with it's oh-so-cutesy voice that grates on my last nerve. As interesting as the 101 are, the asides about other movies give the book much greater depth and interest.

My one criticism is that the book really REAL

I had a mania for these kinds of old Hollywood books when I was a teenager. I thought this one looked great, but didn't like it as much when I actually opened it up. While I read the criteria for choosing the movies, I thought a lot of them were weird choices. The layout was also kind of hard to read with a lot of little boxes of info. Maybe it was just me. Whatever - I ended up paging through the last half.

It's a decent book. My only problem is that in some cases it wasn't as informative as I wished. The plot descriptions left much to be desired in some cases, being more in the style of goofy satire and not really giving me an idea of the actual plot. There were also some typos that I found somewhat annoying. It was still a pretty fun book though and I did enjoy most of it.
