Reviews - What do customers think about 1,000 Best Movies on DVD?

BEWARE...Book is a Farce! The Author Does Not Know What He is Talking About!  May 10, 2008
I should have borrowed this book or checked it out at the local book store first before making the mistake of purchasing it from this site and wasting my money.

The author's lofty premise is that in order for any movie to make it into his top 1000 list in this book, it has to be a great movie PLUS it must have great video transfer quality. Ah, only if Mr. Travers had actually watched the DVDs for the movies in his list.

The book fell apart when I started noticing movies that are well known for their extremely poor video transfer quality being promoted by the author as fantastic editions of the movie. For example, on page 127, he listed The Last Emperor, Director's Cut as the version of the movie on DVD to get. Any movie or DVD buff who loves this movie will know that this is probably the most atrocious video transfer, butchering job ever done for a movie. check out the reviews here on this site for this DVD version listed in the book:The Last Emperor - Director's Cut The DVD's video quality is poor, it is unwatchable, I know this for a fact because I own this DVD and I watched it! The author should be ashamed to be listing such a crappy DVD edition in his top 1000 list against his "criteria." This is just one example, and he lists many more DVDs of poor quality (both in terms of video transfer and just bad movies.)

Based on this example and numerous others in this book, you can't trust anything this guy tells you in the book. Don't waste your money, you and I already know a lot more than Travers the "Rolling Stone Movie Critic."

Peter Travers has made his book "1,000 Best Movies on DVD" a "must have" for all avid TV movie viewers. It is easy to use, and a pleasure to read while reminding you of wonderful movies you have already seen and helping you select movies you will definitely want to see.
Must have for online movie renters  Jan 5, 2007
I bought this book because I wanted to take full advantage of online movie rental services. "1,000 Best Movies on DVD" is a great resource for selecting movies from the large libraries available from online service providers.
A great review book!  Nov 18, 2006
I loved this book and recommend it highly. My only caveat is to have some time set aside to read through it. I was up for hours and hours, reading his reviews of movies that I have already seen, remembering the highlights of great movies. I couldn't put it down. If you love movies, and if you love your DVD machine, this book is a match made in heaven. Buy it. Buy it now.
