The three books are:

 101 Must-See Movie Moments  101 essays on great moments in neglected films and neglected moments, from the lobster scene in “Annie Hall” to the final moments of “Godfather 2,” to a sandwich in the otherwise forgettable “Wives and Lovers” and the “Coward’s Corner” scene in “Homicidal” and the garbage can lid dance in “It’s Always Fair Weather,” and the “Dead by Third Act” character in “Top Gun,” each illuminates an element of cinematic storytelling that will make you understand and appreciate all movies better. ($1.99)

50 Must-See Movies: Mothers  No relationship is more primal, more fraught, more influential, more worried over, more nourishing when good and more devastating when bad that our connection to our mothers. Mom inspires a lot of movies in every possible category, from comedy to romance to drama to crime to animation to horror, from the lowest-budget indie to the biggest-budget prestige film. A lot of women have been nominated for Oscars for playing mothers and just about every actress over age 20 has appeared as a mother in at least one movie. Here are 50 classic movie mothers, the good, the bad, and the downright nightmarish. (99 cents)

50 Must-See Movies: Weddings  Movies and weddings are — it must be said — a match made in heaven. Here are 50 of the best movies about proposals, engagements, and weddings from classics (“Father of the Bride,” “The Godfather”) to neglected gems like “Confetti” and “The Baxter.” Comedies, romances, dramas, runaway brides and wedding crashers — these are must-see for anyone who has ever planned, dreamed of, or been to a wedding. (99 cents)
