Editorial Reviews

See, read and feel what one person's love for the movies is like" -Forces of Geek"Video Tonfa is a great read for film watchers, casual and cult-lover alike." - Suzette Smith,Portland Mercury"Goodyear is every bit in love with the physical minutiae and commercial presentation of movies as he is with the medium itself. His illustrations render the mass-produced production logos and finest print details on the back of a VHS case with the same diligence paid to their cover art; intricacies that would typically be treated with either disdain or indifference are drawn with a fastidious attention to detail that, as with everything else throughout the book, strikes the sweet spot between obsessive and inspired." - Toussaint Egan,PASTE Magazine "See, read and feel what one person's love for the movies is like" - Forces of Geek"Video Tonfa is a great read for film watchers, casual and cult-lover alike." - Suzette Smith,Portland Mercury"Goodyear is every bit in love with the physical minutiae and commercial presentation of movies as he is with the medium itself.
