Teen Movie Books

“Generation Multiplex” by Timothy Shary - Book Description
Drawing examples from hundreds of popular & lesser-known youth-themed films, Timothy Shary here offers a comprehensive examination of the representation of teenagers in American cinema in the 80s & 90s. He focuses on five subgenres - school, delinquency, horror, science & romance/sexuality - to explore how they represent teens & their concerns, how these representations change over time & how youth movies both mirror & shape societal expectations & fears about teen identities & roles. He concludes that while some teen films continue to exploit various notions of youth sexuality & violence, most teen films of the past generation have shown an increasing diversity of adolescent experiences & have been sympathetic to the particular challenges that teens face.

 

 

 

 

 

Sword & Sandal Movie Books

 

Retro Stud” by David Chapman - Book Description
Let's face it, sex sells. Posters that teem with muscle-rippling heroes in skimpy loincloths, frail beauties in diaphanous gowns, pointy-bearded tyrants, and evil queens with heavy makeup and beehive hairdos were all classic lures that used to tempt patrons into theaters to see the sword-and-sandal movies of forty years ago. The posters advertising the films were every bit as dramatic and alluring as the movies themselves, and theater patrons lined up to SEE these "surging spectacles of savagery and sex!" Studio marketing departments learned quickly how to keep the public interested in this distinctive genre. Retro Stud displays beautifully reproduced artwork from around the world—replete with the sly sexuality and lithographed excitement that was typical of these posters.

This is the most colorful and entertaining history of Hong Kong action cinema available. Bey Logan traces the genre from its genesis in the late 1940s until the 1990s, enhancing his story with biographies, select filmographies, and 10-best lists. Though Logan focuses on superstars such as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and John Woo, he also takes time to describe how Hong Kong action cinema blends with other genres.
