John Scalzi - The Rough Guide To Sci-Fi Movies
A fantastic guide which covers the origins of science fiction, and gives reviews of varying length, of just about every major science fiction film you can think of. Some of the decisions regarding the 50 sci-fi classic films are obviously contentious, and a number of authors you'd expect to be included aren't. But it's a lovely book to dip into, well laid out and easy on the eye. There's also biographies on leading sci-fi figures - from actors to film producers and directors, and a section on early SF films. Perhaps the best part of the book is the enlightening info on non-English speaking sci-fi films. Lacks colour photos, and could have done with more photos generally, but there's few things to criticise.
