        No, I don’t think so…. only one of the worst and best missing from 1980 to 1998. Reeeeeaally would like to see it, but I’m not holding my breath.

        Yes you did. I’ll never forget the moment when Gene insulted Roger for changing his mind on Unforgiven.

      I got the 1992 edition of Roger Ebert’s Movie Home Companion for Christmas. Cool book.

    Nice, I am happy for you! I still have about three or four more books to complete the collection.

      I don’t plan to collect every edition. Just those written between the late 80’s to mid 90’s.

    1982 has been a great year for movies. I know a lot of people were familiar with the year in terms of big budget special effects blockbusters and high concept films. I enjoy those too (Blade Runner is my favorite), but there’s a lot more to 1982 than just the blockbusters. There’s still a lot of art driven films that have come out domestically that year that I haven’t seen yet and those that I once rented on VHS that I would like to see again. Great year.
