Holiday Gift Guide

The first installment of our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide is brought to you by Best Buy. As the purveyors of movie news and opinions, you could say that we watch a lot of movies in my home. In fact, it’s the nature of movie bloggers to work without an office, from home, so it’s no stretch for us to say that we watch the vast majority of our movies at home. It’s where we work, play, watch, nap and sometimes play the occasional video game to clear our minds. It’s the corner of the house known as our home theater. So when the folks at Best Buy approached us to sponsor the first installment in our annual gift guide, asking if we could put together a list of home theater essentials for the holiday season, we was more than up for the challenge. And we think we’ve put together a pretty solid list for you just in time for Black Friday, the kick-off of the big holiday shopping season. From essential components to accessories to Blu-rays that will make your home theater hum, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re buying for your favorite movie lover or buying something for yourself, you’ll get no judgment from us. Just a number of solid suggestions.

The Holiday Gift Guide: Books for Movie Lovers

It may shock you to realize that you, dear reader, are a reader. You are reading this right now! Bizarre, right? And, if you can read things on the Internet, you can certainly read things that come in the traditionally accepted reading format, better known as a “book.” And if you can do it, surely the people in your life that you love enough to buy holiday presents for can do it, too! Enter The Holiday Gift Guide, and more specifically, enter this particular contribution: 18 Books for Movie Lovers. So shiny and wrap-able! So easily order-able and ship-able! So key to preventing widespread illiteracy! After the break, check out seventeen (but really eighteen) books for the movie lover in your life for holiday season gift-giving. Unlike some of those other guides, not all of these books hit shelves in the past eleven months, as I stretched beyond just this calendar year to come up with some unexpected literary picks to make your gift-giving that much more original. Did I make an egregious omission? Of course I did. Put your obvious suggestions in the comments. And, hey, if you gift one of these books and it’s a big hit, let us know which one it was. It’s always nice to hear praise. Happy Chrismakwanzakuh, you guys.
