Treating the movie poster as the legitimate and pioneering art form that it is, this massive collection of more than 1,500 examples of international poster art will delight the art gallery crowd as much as the hard core film buff. Covering postwar movie history and spanning the globe, the book offers a comprehensive look at 2D representations of film. The focus here is firmly on the art side of the equation with works that would feel right at home in any fine art gallery or museum. Indeed, these posters do all reside at New York’s Posteritati Gallery. There are many milestones in graphic design represented on these fine glossy pages as well as a lifetime of moviegoing memories. Deluxe, gorgeous and thought-provoking all at once.

Throughout his career, Fareed Zakaria has used his knack for acute observation to draw compelling, and largely reliable, conclusions. The Post-American World is no different. This is a thoughtful book about serious issues by a very intelligent writer. Obama was spotted reading a copy. Indeed, any truly critical thinker will want to read this. No one book will make all the difference, but familiarity with this particular volume would go a ways towards ensuring that the 44th President of the United States is better equipped to deal with America’s changing role than the 43rd.

Queen returned this year with their first album of all-new material since the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991. PopMatters found the results pretty satisfying, slapping a 7 on the new record. But those hard-core Queen fans who rushed out to buy The Cosmos Rocks are going to have to pony up again for this deluxe vinyl set as they’ll be able to score the LP of the record, along with the CD and a DVD of a recent live show. Even better though, are the included vinyl editions of Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Day at the Races and the best Queen album of them all, A Night at the Opera. An essential addition to any Queen fan’s collection as well as an ideal gift for any classic rock vinylphile.

Sick of the same old overproduced pabulum generated by Hollywood hacks? Want some real independent artistry for your motion picture money? Then why not give this unique monthly service a try. Gleaned from the company’s vast collection of unusual and outsider cinema, subscribers receive 12 films and 12 shorts over the course of a single year (lesser commitments are also available). With selections ranging from the critically acclaimed and well known to ones flying completely under the mainstream radar, it’s the perfect cure for Tinsel Town’s trashy commercialism.
