Nelson was one of the primaries in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 show and has a strange affection, or maybe it is disaffection for film. The book consists of many 2-4 page articles about specific movies or related topics that catch his fancy. For instance there is a section in which he lampoons acting families. Although the material is occasionally laugh out loud funny, it is mostly not. It is just Nelson being snide, mean and negative. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
