Copyright:  2007 ISBN-13:  9781594741913

Give us your top ten movies and we'll tell you about you.


Everyone has a list of favorite movies, but few people truly understand how much these movies reveal about our personalities. Cinescopes invites readers to find their ten favorite movies in a glossary of more than 3,000 popular films and then offers spectacular insights into what our most-loved films reveal about ourselves. Using a unique blend of pop psychology, astrology, and cinematic analysis,

Cinescopes profiles sixteen different types of movie fans, complete with their own unique strengths, weaknesses, secrets, and characteristic behaviors. Along the way, you'll also discover how you measure up to other kinds of movie buffs, including your best and worst relationship matches, your personal nemesis, and even other movies you may enjoy.

Cinescopes is a wonderful conversation starter and a delightful gift for pop-culture enthusiasts of all ages.


"Movies are the mythic tales of today. They can make us cry, scream, or laugh. They can cheer us up or bring us down. And just like those ancient stories of humans struggling against opposition, movies tend to focus on a hero undertaking some kind of journey, whether it be physical, intellectual, or emotional.

Heroes may share common storylines, but there are many diverse types of heroic characters. There are truths we can learn about ourselves as individuals based on the kinds of heroes we appreciate most. Some people like to watch Debra Winger’s character facing cancer in Terms of Endearment, while others prefer to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger gunning people down in Terminator 2. These very different heroes communicate different philosophies about life, and that’s the idea that sparked our book."
