For some of us, moviegoing is an occasional pleasure. Kevin Murphy made it his obsession, and he did it for you. Mr. Murphy, known to legions of fans as Tom Servo on the legendary TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000, went to the movies every day for a year. That's every single day, people. For a whole fricken' year. And not only did he endure, he prevailed -- for this is the hilarious, poignant, fascinating journal of his adventures: the first book about the movies from the audience's point of view. Kevin went to the multiplex, sure. But he didn't stop there. He found the world's smallest commercial movie theater. Another one made completely of ice. Checked out flicks in a tin-roofed hut in the South Pacific. Tooled across the desert from drive-in to drive-in in a groovy convertible. Lived for a week solely on theater food. Took six different women to the same date movie. Dressed up as a nun for the Sing-Along Sound of Music in London. Sneaked into the Cannes and Sundance film festivals. Smuggled an entire Thanksgiving dinner into a movie theater. And saw hundreds of films, from the Arctic Circle to the Equator, from the sublime to the unspeakable. Come along on a joyous global celebration of the cinema with a man on a mission -- to spend A Year at the Movies.… (plus d'informations)

Kevin is a very entertaining guide through the world of movie theaters and movies, but his style is too self-conscious to sustain and entire book. The central premise - seeing a movie a day for a whole year, in a proper theatre - seems to bore even him very early on. ( )

Shortly after the end of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Kevin Murphy, the voice of Tom Servo, got a deal to go to a movie every day for a year and write a book about the experience. It a pretty interesting book as long as you don't expect him to discuss every movie he sees, because that's not what the book is about. It's about the moviegoing experience. We see him going to Cannes and Sundance. He visits the world's smallest theater and a theater made of ice. He sneaks Thanksgiving dinner into a theater. He spends a week dressed as Santa Claus (and has an odd encounter with a man who claims to be the real Santa while in Lapland). There's also a lot of non-gimmicky stuff where he discusses the value of film critics, or the importance of independent film, or why documentaries are more interesting than you think. Over all, it's a good book for the MST3K fan or the fan of film in general. ( )
