Phil's Favorite 500: Loves of a Moviegoing Lifetime

Front Cover
Mountain Lake Press, 2013 M02 21 - 547 pages
Phil Berardelli has been in love with movies ever since his first encounter as a little boy thrilled him and then scared the daylights out of him. In the intervening years, including a six-year stint as a TV movie critic, Phil has seen at least 5,000 titles. Here he has put together a list of his 500+ favorites, which he has separated into 51 categories. He has accompanied each one with informative, witty, and often insightful capsule comments along with bits of trivia, formatting descriptions and, where available, links to online trailers, clips and full-length versions.
Phil's Favorite 500 encompasses everything Phil has learned in over half a century of moviegoing. The list includes something for everyone - adults, couples, children, teens and families - and covers some of the greatest movies ever made, both in the U.S. and elsewhere, as well as some of the cinema's most entertaining clunkers. Many of his choices - and omissions - may surprise you. But in all cases, Phil makes compelling arguments for sampling these titles. If you do, you may find yourself adding many of them to your own list of favorites.
Sampled, browsed, or read from beginning to end, Phil's Favorite 500 reflects a love of the medium that is contagious, and his descriptions could help you view even the most familiar movies in a new and very entertaining way.
