    As Roger Ebert is quick to point out, this is NOT a book of the second 100 Greatest Movies based on a ranking or rating system In fact, he holds many of the titles contained within this collection with equal esteem as those mentioned in the first book The only ranking he would admit to doing was for the Sight Sound polling of film critics and he wasn t happy about it Instead, he used a definition that a Great Movie was one that would

    There are many aspects to appreciate about Roger Ebert s writing There are two that make me a fan even though I disagreed with him many times 1 he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of film, and movies in general 2 he had what I can only describe as joy in his work It was contagious I know from writing movi...

    This volume hasforeign and less known films but like the original volume, the summaries and descriptions make you want to run out and rent the movies ASAP.

    Why or why did I find the second book first The story of my life Now I have to backtrack and read Book one too The book is a collection of essays by Ebert discussing some of the greatest movies of all time.This is not a second tier ranking after the films discussed in book one It is simply a compilation of essays from Ebert based on his watching and re watching of many of these films as well as reviews by he alone and those he worked on with Gene Siskel.One

    I ve reached a place where I m not sure what I think of Roger Ebert I know that he was a powerhouse in film review Hell, he even won a Pulitzer Prize for Criticism There s a reason for that his reviews are well done thorough, analytical, and full of love for film even when he does not love the film he s reviewing in particular Still, I do have to think about the fact that he is a straight, white man who views film through a different lens than I do He s very old sch

    Totally worth a readA movie fanatic s dream come true Ebert has fascinating insights into why certain movies stay with us, and why others don t I love how clearly he articulated why Alien was so great, and why West Side Story was on the list, even though it wasn t great.

    Loved it.

    I ve seen 57 out of 99 movies listed The short essays are ok, although sometimes relying simply too much of plot synopsis rather than inside info of WHY Ebert thinks they are great.And Planes, Trains and Automoblieks is not even a funny movie, let alone great Five Easy Pieces is pointless and plotless, while Solaris is rather boring 12 Angry MenThe Adventures of Robin HoodAlienAmadeusAmarcordAnnie HallAu Hazard, BalthazarThe Bank DickBeat the DevilBeing ThereThe Big HeatThe Birth of a N I

    As all of his later writing, the short essays in here are insightful, philosophical, as well as tender and personal Short love letters to some movies that Ebert loves, written perhapsas diary entries than critical studies don t get me wrong when I say that Ebert was a professional critic, so they still have great criticism, just of a personal rather than objective nature I ve returned to this book over and over again I m very eager to read his other two in the great m...

    Even though I regularly don t agree with his taste in movies, I respect Roger Ebert as a writer and critic I probably shouldn t have read the second volume so quickly after the first by the end I got somewhat tired of reading the reviews, trying to skim over parts that looked to be too spoiler laden.Movies Ebert makes me want to see, or see again 12 Angry MenAmarcordThe Bank DickBeat the DevilThe Big HeatBob le FlambeurBring Me the Head of Alfredo GarciaChildren of ParadiseThe Fireman s BallFi Even though
