Kelsey Oseid renders the history, science, and myths of our solar system in stunning hand-painted ar.  . I bought it because I love the style of the artwork and was surprised by how much information is packed into the pages. -BuzzFeed.

But the genre's most unexpected and craziest jolt of adrenaline will come this weekend, when writer-director Gareth Evans' brutal The Raid: Redemption hits limited theaters.

The Breakout Movie: A series of supporting roles kept Carrey working through the early .

The Breakout Movie: A series of supporting roles kept Carrey working through the early 1990s. Then along came Ace Ventura, which established him as a comedy talent to watch – and still has us quoting his catch phrases today. He was best known for performing original songs, including the ever-popular ‘Chakunah Song’. He was fired in 1995, reasons unknown. The TV Show: Having cracked the small screen by playing a fall victim in TV drama Emergency!, Travolta moved on to bigger and better things with sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter.

The book looks at the phenomenon of stardom in the cinema, focusing on over 160 stars of the silver screen from the heyday of Hollywood, when stars such as John Wayne, James Stewart and Doris Day showed us a bright glossy view of America, through to contemporary idols as a George Clooney and Nicole Kidman, the book gives an insider's view of each actors personal and professional lives.

Good information and stuff I did not know but generalized data. Interesting enough to keep me going but I was looking for more specific personalized information or stories on stars and the making of specific movies and how stars interacted. For example: how did Loretta Young and Clark Gable interacted when making Call of The Wild. What trivia is there about the making of this and other movies.

The author has definite ideas about who was and was not a good actor/actress. I wondered how some of the stars chosen to be highlighted were selected from the hundreds of people who have been seen on the silver screen (Sylvester Stallone and Keanu Reeves, for example).

Some of the categories the author used: screen goddesses, romantic heroes, sensitive anti-heroes, comedy stars, glamour queens, the good joes, the heavies, villains and downright cads, the queens of melodrama, the great musical stars, the new women, post-feminist heroines, the streetwise stars, the tough guys, the comedy actors, British stars, French stars, Italian stars.

Then the author lists three great stars: Marlon Brando, George C. Scott and Robert De Niro.
