Fifty Movies in fifty words (or less)



If you didn't know Jaws was a comedy then you need to read this book.


Films are brilliant! But sometimes they are also really stupid. In Fifty Movies in Fifty Words (or less) Jerry Baxter has carefully selected fifty of the best films ever made, and then poked fun at them with an especially blunt pencil.

You'll also see why Jerry's old art teacher was so very proud of his freestyle drawing skills.

Do you want to know why Darth Vader should learn to ride a Penny Farthing?

Have you always wondered why Charlton Heston was such a big fan of guns?

You'll get the answers to these burning questions, and much, much more in this wonderfully funny book.

Films included range from Casablanca to the Matrix, The Godfather to Fight Club, and Harry Potter to Alien. Don't delay - laugh today!















There are plenty more movies in the Fifty Movies in Fifty Words (or less) eBook, and remember you can read it on your iPhone, Android phone, PC, Mac, Ipad, Tablet as well as the Kindle!

ps. You can share this page on facebook or twitter, but if you want to share just one of the films with your friends, they are available to share on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/candescentpress. If you do share, many thanks!
