Love the Sinner, Hate the Cinema
Poison Capsule Reviews

E. Basil St. Blaise, Now What's own curmudgeonly movie reviewer of few words and less tact, skewers everything from the biggest blockbuster to the artsiest indie in short, but sour reviews. In the new collection Love the Sinner, Hate the Cinema, culled from the Critic's Corner, he stares down the Not-So-Good, the Bad and the Ugly in the world of Cinema, and tears ‘em all a new sprocket hole. Crix nix prix pix in over 1,000 nasty notices and they are accompanied by more than 100 illustrated send-ups of all the stars and their flicks by ace cartoonists Randy Jones and Martin Kozlowski.

What Critics are Saying:

Recently we received a copy of a (very humorous) book of movie reviews that contains some of the most entertainingly hilarious and so, so true movie reviews that we wish that we had written it ourselves! Seriously.
