Welcome to
Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to the Movies!

Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs is the (fictional) Historical Drive-In Movie Reviewer of the "Briggsian school of alfresco film criticism" founded by movie reviewer and Showtime and TNT personality Joe Bob Briggs. Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs writes reviews which are both entertaining and educational of movies which are set in the Middle Ages and Renaissance (and sometimes earlier) periods, or pre-technological fantasy worlds (like the "Conan" and "Gor" series).

Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs' monthly movie reviews, Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to the Movies, have for a long time been collected into a series of booklets, each booklet containing two years' worth of movie reviews (24 per volume). Fourteen regular volumes and two specialty volumes of these booklets have been published, but because of declining sales, I have decided to phase out these booklets and replace them with a new, more complete (and more easily updateable as additional monthly reviews are published, probably as an annual update) collection, 32 Years of Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to the Movies. Containing 384 movie reviews, plus an alphabetical list of them all with the dates on which each review was first published, and as a bonus, a PowerPoint program, "If ... You Might Be Watching a Da'ud Bob Movie." (As an example from the presentation: "If chickens are used as missile weapons ... against Roman legionaries ... You might be watching a Da'ud Bob movie.") This new collection is available on CD-ROM or on a USB drive, and can be found for sale below or through the Heraldic Arts and Movie Reviews Order Page on this website.

The remaining soft cover regular booklets are still available in limited supply (until they run out) for $3.00 each immediately below or through the Heraldic Arts and Movie Reviews Order Page.

Also available until they run out are the two specialty volumes:

The Best and the Worst of Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to the Movies, a special selection of movie reviews, all with new introductions and background information of the movies reviewed. All this, as well as a couple of special movie reviews which will not be published anywhere else, plus a specially-commissioned cover by the late William Blackfox. This special edition Da'ud Bob can be ordered for $10.00 immediately below or through the Heraldic Arts and Movie Reviews Order Page here.

Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to Shakespeare Movies contains reviews of some fifty movies of the plays of William Shakespeare, or movies based on them, plus a couple of films based on portions of his life. (I like to think of this volume as "Da'ud Bob meets Billy Bob!") This special edition Da'ud Bob can also be ordered for $10.00 immediately below or through the Heraldic Arts and Movie Reviews Order Page here.

You can also purchase "The Compleat Da'ud Bob," all fourteen regular volumes plus The Best (and Worst) of Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to the Movies and Da'ud Bob ibn Briggs Goes to Shakespeare Movies, at a significant savings over purchasing all of the volumes individually. Again, as long as supplies last.
