If Y2K has you feeling a little dog-eared, take a break with VideoHound. Back and even better for the new millennium, the Hound is the final "woof" on what to watch and what to toss to the dogs.Wasted trips to the video store? Lost time combing the cable guide? Never again! The Hound's reviews never leave movie aficionados out in the cold about what to spend their leisure time watching. Entertaining reviews tell the whole story and more on the earliest films to those just released on video. There simply is no more complete guide to films on video, laserdisc and DVD.More than 23,000 movies are sniffed out as only the Hound can, with the only "four bone" rating system available for human consumption. Proud owners of this edition will be the envy of all their friends when they have answers to even the most obscure questions on films, casts, writers, directors, composers, cinematographers, awards, foreign films and more. For easiest searching, VideoHound's 10 indexes (covering more than 40,000 actors, directors, screenwriters, composers and more) are expanded for this special turn-of-the-century edition. A separate Web site guide gives movie fans even more to love. But wait, there's more!More than 1,000 films have been added for this edition. The first to cover DVD, the Hound continues its aggressive digging out of the digital movie revolution by covering some 2,000 films released in the new format. And never one to neglect special formats, from letterboxing to closed captioning, VideoHound uncovers every alternative.
