A nice series of snapshots of movies released in the last 10 years or so. I don't always agree with Loder, and he sometimes hits way the far off the mark, but he is never boring. He also has separate sections that cover foreign films and documentaries, subjects usually ignored by the mainstream movie-going audience. In addition, the book concludes with a section devoted just to the awful films that Nicholas Cage has made recently, which was a nice comedic touch/tribute.

The book is well worth the read. And for those who are not film conesours, it is neatly divided-up, making it easy to avoid individual films and categories of films that are not of interest to you. However, I did find more than a few new films I am now interested in checking out for myself. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031264163X, Paperback)

The former Rolling Stone writer and MTV host takes off from classic Roger Ebert and sails boldly into the new millennium.

Millions grew up reading the author’s record reviews and watching him on MTV’s “The Week in Rock.” In this collection of more than 200 movie reviews from MTV.com and, more recently, the Reason magazine Website, plus sidebars exclusive to this volume, Loder demonstrates his characteristic wry voice and finely honed observations. The author shines when writing on the best that Hollywood and indie filmmakers have to offer, and his negative reviews are sometimes more fun than his raves. This freewheeling survey of the wild, the wonderful and the altogether otherwise is an indispensable book for any film buff.
