Item description for Best Movies of the 80's by Jurgen Muller...
Gaga for Ghostbusters? Get the guide. Step right up and get your fill of 80s nostalgia with the movie bible to end all movie bibles. We've diligently compiled a list of 140 of the most influential movies of the 1980s that's sure to please popcorn gobblers and highbrow chin-strokers alike. The 80s was a time for adventurers, an era of excess, pomp, and bravado. In the era when mullets and shoulder pads were all the rage, moviegoers got their kicks from flicks as wide-ranging as Blade Runner, When Harry Met Sally, and Blue Velvet. Without a doubt, sci-fi was the most important genre of the decade, with non-human characters like E.T. winning the hearts of millions while the slimy creatures from Aliens became the stuff of nightmares and movies like Ghostbusters and Back to the Future fused comedy and sci-fi to the delight of audiences everywhere. In fact, the 1980s saw the invention of a new reality, a movieworld so convincingly real - no matter now far-fetched - that spectators could not help but abandon hemselves to it. Now that's entertainment, folks.

I haven't received the book yet. please send me my book. I've already payed for that.
Good read for any movie buff. May 1, 2007
Good book, pretty cheap considering it's hardcover. Lots of large colour photos, it covers most of the major hollywood movies of the 80's ( and there sure were some great ones ) as well as some foreign movies. The introduction is a bit airy fairy, but the rest is good, makes me want to get out the movies he talks about that I haven't seen yet.
