Blockbuster Video Guide to Movies & Videos

Forty film clips and a bunch of guided tours comprise a lot of Blockbuster Video Guide to Movies & Videos (Creative Multimedia); the rest of it is a movie database that falls somewhere between skimpy and not bad. The virtual theater interface leads to features like the Movie Game, a Biographies section, and a general tour for every genre. Beware the guided tours, which slow your machine to a crawl. As for the actual content, a balance has been struck between something accessible (lots of pictures, newish movies, and opinionated reviews) and something more comprehensive. There’s not quite enough glitz, however, to dethrone Cinemania, and serious film buffs will want more depth.

– March 1996
