Ty Burr definitely has the knack of making movies sound appealing we read this book out loud and when we were finished we had added 100 movies to our Netflix ueue So you know fair warning unless you ve already seen all the old movies there are to see and he does not focus on just the classics and the well known ones so don t think you re in the clear just because you have a substantial black and white collection already you will probably end up watching a lot of old movies if you read this book Which is no bad thing of course In addition to Burr s unholy ability to sell you on movies he loves there s a sort of underlying not uite narrative that makes this book readable and enjoyable than you might expect In addition to providing lists of movies that might work for children of various ages with reviews and notes of things to be worried about and uite possibly just a smidgeon of dark magic that takes over your brain Burr also talks a lot about his own experiment of getting his children to watch old movies This is fascinating and never so than in the chapter where he describes where he went wrong Seriously the book is worth reading just for thatThis is also a useful book if you have issues that make you hesitant to pick up a random movie and watch it Burr tends to warn for things that might be disturbing or sad or seriously upsetting Admittedly this is a service he s mostly providing with children in mind but if you just cannot cope with certain kinds of movies then this will be a godsend for you tooOh and if you re wondering if his recommendations actually work so far we ve seen a handful of the hundred movies we picked from his lists and descriptions and we ve enjoyed about 75% of them Not counting the one that he specifically said people our age shouldn t watch He was right we didn t like it You can be too old for Laurel and Hardy and if you re using this site you are I understand this now
