Most action flicks, sordid teen dramas, dead-end forbidden romances, and a great many others are viciously shot down and trampled upon.

Roger Ebert is the Pulitzer Prize& film critic of the Chicago Sun-Times. Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2010.

America's most trusted and best-known film critic Roger Ebert presents one hundred brilliant essays on some of the best movies ever made. For the past five years Roger Ebert, the famed film writer and critic, has been writing biweekly essays for a feature called "The Great Movies," in which he offers a fresh and fervent appreciation of a great film. The Great Movies collects one hundred of these essays, each one of them a gem of critical appreciation and an amalgam of love, analysis, and history that will send readers back to that film with a fresh set of eyes.

A collection of every movie review the popular, Pulitzer Prize-winning movie critic has done from January 1998 to mid-June 2000 includes the past year's interviews and essays, as well as reviews from all the major film festivals. Original.

I picked this up not necessarily expecting much out of it, but it turns out to be a great read. This book is good just for general reading, or for getting a review of a movie you might want to see. Ebert's a critic with his own opinions and so obviously you might not agree with everything he has to say, nor should you. But whether his comments are positive ("Traffic" [4 Stars]: "powerful precisely because it doesn't preach.") or negative ('Inspector Gadget' [1 and 1/2 stars]: "would it have killed them to add a real 'Inspector Gadget' cartoon as a warm-up and scene-setter'), Ebert often seems to be right on the money.
As if all of this weren't enough, the book is elevated with two interesting sections in the back: "Film Festivals," a review of Film Festivals that Ebert has attended and "Questions for the Movie Man," a collection of Ebert's question and answer columns.
Finally, at the end, there's a list of the star ratings Ebert has given for every review that's appeared in any of his books.

I was a little surprised to find Ebert's writing slightly rough and disorganized. Bits of plot, comments on whether or not the actors fit the parts, and moments of amazing lucidity occur in the reviews in no specific order. Nevertheless, the conversational tone works and the reviews flow well. This guide to recent movies is as good as any, and probably better, since it includes reviews for movie festival entries, foreign films, and more. The guide also includes several indexes of movies and actors, and most (if not all) Answerman entries.
It isn't true that Roger Ebert is completely unbiased, and most of the entertainment (if any) derived from reading this installation in the yearly series will come from looking for his unique, personal stance on the art of moviemaking. Most action flicks, sordid teen dramas, dead-end forbidden romances, and a great many others are viciously shot down and trampled upon. On the other hand, fairly innocuous and endearing movies, especially if they are foreign-made, are gently supported like top-heavy saplings. Oh, and do watch out for Ebert's take on "Pokemon: the Movie". It's absolutely hilarious.

If you might not have gotten your hands on Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2001, or an earlier Roger Bbert's books in which the reviews from The Chicago Suntimes, get this book. Now you can read reviews that Roger Ebert has written from January 1, 1999 to June 30, 2001. You might have missed reading the reviews in the paper, but you can go back and read them on-line if you want a movie from after 1984. And Ebert's review of 3,000 Miles To Graceland is in here. Alone with the Grinch, Shrek, Stuart Little, Pearl Harbor and any other movies tht are not from before 1999. If you don't get the Chicago Suntimes, but have the net, you can read Ebert's reviews on-line. If you have kids, the book has Ebert's reviews of How The Grinch Stole Christmas, The Trumpet of the Swan, Shrek, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Little Vampire, Doug's First Movie. Just to name a few, or if you like to watch kid's movies. But please don't let them watch Pg-13 movies, until they are 13, and R rated movies until they are 17. Keep up the good job Mr. Ebert.

This thick book contains all of Ebert's reviews of movies released in the past year, as well as his weekly articles and his notes from attending film festivals such as Cannes. If you're a movie fan and would like a book to refer to when choosing videos, or want some scoop on the various festivals around the world, Ebert's yearbook (updated annually) should be what you need.

i have to recommend this book very highly.
back in college i used mr. ebert's one paragraph film description of badlands as the basis of a paper for my existentionalism in film class. without seeing the movie i received a high grade with a note from the professor saying that he was very impressed with my work and wished that he could give a higher grade than an A.
thanks a lot roger

This yearbook has reviews that Roger Ebert has written for his paper from 1998-2000. The 1998 reviews he wrote that he reviewed on his show with the late Gene Siskel and today Richard Roeper. But today I ws surpised to see that Ebert & Roeper and the movies are moving from channel 2 to channel 7. Actually I made the mssing from channel 2 yeasterday. And he will to it with Roeper in a new balcany. If you are looking for a movie good for kids then check out My Dog Skip, Stuart Little, Antz, Toy Story 2 for a start. There are aslo plenty of R rated movies, like Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Livers of the Artic Circle, South Park, Biggger, Longer and Uncut, The Limey, and Lets Talk Sex. If you have a teen from 13-16 years and can't watch R rated movies and doesn't care for children's movies anymore then have them check out Patch Adams, Jakob the Liar, Bicentennial Man, Big Daddy. If you have a big Chicago Bulls fan then have him or check out Michael Jordan to the Max either on dvd/video or on the imax on Navy Pier. If you want any older movie that has already been reviewed in a earlier book then check out pages 827-855 for a star rating the year and the rating. There soemthing for every one.

I usually enjoy Roger Ebert's movie reviews, but quite a few reviews in this book evidenced what can only be called stupidity. Although he understands the basic necessities of movie entertainment (dramatic tension, forward movement, character development etc.), so does every college drama graduate. The problem is that Ebert enjoys an amazing blindness to complex emotions and irony, and his sense of humor is decidedly slapstick. Basically, he reviews movies on the mid-level-college-freshman-with-a-110-IQ level. If you share these characteristics and preferences, his opinions may appeal to you. If not, the book is just another proof that "there's no accounting for taste."
