Item description for Sci-Fi Movies Facts, Figures & Fun (Facts Figures & Fun) by John Grant...
Sci-fi films are pure gold at the box office---think Star Wars and Spider-Man---with an exceptionally devoted fan base. And Paul Barnett, an award-winning author of many nonfiction books on science fiction and fantasy, as well as some 50 novels, has created a great guide for them. It expertly surveys the genre's best and worst, charting the cinematic changes from the low-budget, cheesy 50's flicks to today's high-budget, high-tech blockbusters with their mind-blowing special effects. Separate sections cover remakes, sequels, award-winners, and even sci-fi erotica! Mavens will enjoy all the in-depth information and memorable quotes---as well as the smart, knowledgeable writing.
