Review:

Halliwell's Film and Video Guide gets better with each passing year. Though original editor Leslie Halliwell died in 1989, John Walker has continued to edit the book in the Halliwell tradition. Halliwell and Walker don't comment at length upon the films, but they provide an enormous amount of indispensable information. This tome contains more than 20,000 movie reviews and provides a full list of credits for each. Running time, director, cast, and availability on video are documented, as well as the writer, photographer, studio, country of origin, film editor, production designer, and composer of music. The authors also note whether the film is suitable for family viewing and tell if it was nominated for, or if it won, an Oscar or a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award. If a film contains classic lines of dialogue, or received particularly interesting comments from the critics, Halliwell and Walker are sure to transcribe them. Halliwell's Film and Video Guide is a treasure no movie lover will want to be without.

Review:

‘Often imitated, never bettered’, The Guardian

‘The indispensable reference guide for the avid moviegoer’s bookshelf’, Empire

‘The King Kong of movie reference works’, Mail on Sunday
