Ever run out of movies in your Netflix queue? Or wander around the video store aimlessly for an hour before leaving empty-handed? Here’s a jump start – 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. It has all the classics – E.T., Top Gun, and The Shining (obviously), but also has films I’ve never heard of (and I took film classes in college!).
Where other anthology-type books simply summarize the plot details and list the actors, 1001 Movies… tells you specifically why each film belongs in your must-see list.
