321 pages4 hours


Film critic Bob Chipman has written a lot about movies, but he's also spent a career covering the film industry itself. Here, he collects a selection of his most offbeat writing on the business and culture of moviemaking, including box-office analysis, an explanation of Hollywood's seasonal-release logic, the impact of new digital platforms on the film business and more! Also included: Reader-favorite columns like "The Good Book of Bad Movies" and "Why Movies Suck Now - Parts I & II."

While perhaps best known as the creator and star of classic Web Video series like Escape to The Movies, The Big Picture and The Game OverThinker; Bob Chipman has also published numerous volumes of written reviews, commentaries, thinkpieces and features covering the worlds of film, television, video games and the broader breadth of popular culture. Now, through The MovieBob Anthology, a selection of his best work is yours to own - selected and organized by theme by Bob Chipman himself.
