Not content with just directing you towards the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour, theatre with Wicked, or the best DVDs this Christmas 2013 – it’s time for some film-related books to add to those unique gifts!


First up is the book ‘The Filmmaker Says…’ and it’s one of those collections that has quotes, advice and more for any film-lover but this is different to your usual assortment. Containing quips and words of wisdom, the book has been brilliantly put together with thoughts and feelings from some of our most influential and opinionated film souls but – and this is the great part – to form a narrative of its own.

If you’ve recently found love in film, you’re making one yourself or you’re an old head at all pieces of trivia then you’ll find this book really insightful and equally inspiring. It also reminds you that we’re all fans and we all have doubts but most of it, it celebrates the nature of the movies and how it can change your life…for the better!

Now then, December is kinda a big deal and not only do we get to see ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES but we’ve now got Ron Burgundy’s Memoirs in ‘Let Me Off At The Top: My Classy Life and Other Musings’ is out now and a must for any lovers of rich mahogany or if you want to be part of the best News team in San Diego. We’ve seen this and it’s truly inspired and if you need any more convincing, here’s some words from Ron himself:

 “I don’t know if it’s the greatest autobiography ever written. I’m too close to the work,” Burgundy said, adding, “I will tell you this much: the first time I sat down and read this thing . . . I cried like a goddamn baby, and you can take that to the bank!”

Finally, any year wouldn’t be complete without some Wes Anderson and so this new gathering is a must for any fan or lover of his work. The Wes Anderson Collection is describedto be in style of the ‘Truffaut on Hitchcock’, as acclaimed critic Matt Zoller Seitz’s book-length interview with Wes Anderson is the very first book on one of America’s most beloved and idiosyncratic film directors.

It also contains previously unpublished behind-the-scenes photos and art and looks truly beautiful as he talks through Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom – instantly recognisable as ‘Andersonian’.

It’s all pretty special, I’m sure you’ll agree and there’s a few more due out just before Christmas. Keep an eye out over here to pick yours up
