    1. If you're looking for a summary of the New Hollywood movement, Geoff King's New Hollywood Cinema is not a a bad place to start although, only half the book is dedicated to that, the other half is about blockbusters and modern Hollywood.I found the information in this to be helpful as a general summary, but it is slightly misleading.

    2. Really interesting, though it focuses more on current Hollywood trends and aesthetic than I had anticipated. I was more interested in reading about the Hollywood Renaissance of the 1960s/70s and this book only offers a chapter focusing on it exclusively. However, it does serve as a good introduction on the multitude of factors involved in Hollywood studies.Ultimately, King seeks to offer counterpoints to the trend of critics and intellectuals who are dismissive and hyperbolic about the state of [...]

    3. This book is good at in its consideration of what other critics (cultural/critical studies) generally take for granted or deal only loosely: political economy of film industry and its interaction with specific films under different periods.I think this is a huge improvement when compared with the approach in Ryan & Kellner's 'Camera Politica' (1988). It also focuses on the technical/stylistic aspects more. Additionally, it refrains from asserting easily-made over-generalizations about clear- [...]

    4. In trying to redefine "New Hollywood" as both the counterculture Hollywood films of the late 60s and 70s and the contemporary Hollywood blockbusters through present day, King spends significantly more time on the latter than the former. While this becomes informative on a basic level, it is not quite the balance I had anticipated.

    5. A very general review of cinema and how it's changed since the "studio era." I just wish it had focused more on the "New Hollywood" more, rather than blockbusters of the last 20 years. Who cares about recent big-budget films? Not I. Still, informative and definitely contained some interesting tidbits.

    6. I really liked what I read. Maybe it is because the book is about innovative Hollywood projects, I found the topic exciting and refreshing.
