From the introduction: "So how did we define 'must see'? Well first we made selections from the genres Action/Adventure & Epic, Comedy, Drama, Horror, Musical, Mystery & Thriller, Romance, Science show more Fiction & Fantasy, War and Western, then consulted the many lists of 'favourite' or 'best' movies that have been compiled. Our expert critics had their own views of course. Then we looked at the body of work each director, actor, cameraman and crew contributed to the decade or decades featured in the chronology of this book. We looked at films which complemented or contrasted with one another within their genre or which reflected the era in which they were made." show less
