Overview

A comprehensive guide to 250 timeless movies that teenagers will love!

Here is an engaging, breezy, and fun guide that hits the sweet spot when it comes to movies that appeal to teens. Included are the best of the more recent blockbusters, lesser-known edgy satires, and thought-provoking films, as well as vintage classics that have stood the test of time.

The expansive selection of movies covers a surprisingly wide range of styles and eras, which all have something to say over the crunch of popcorn. These are accomplished films that invite viewers into unique worlds, and all are available at the corner video store.

Five categories of movies are covered, from serious drama to comedy to what the author terms "Fright Night." There are action adventure flicks as well as those often described as coming-of-age films. Each entry includes:

  • a brief synopsis
  • the author's cut-to-the-chase opinion
  • a memorable moment or line to watch for
  • a quick message about what the movie is trying to say
  • "Check This Out": films with a similar theme, interest or plot

Throughout, sidebars reveal little-known facts about the movies. An index at the back of the book provides quick reference.

Written by professional movie critic and film fanatic John Lekich, this is an authoritative guide with a wonderfully jaunty tone. John's enthusiasm for movies, both new and old, is genuinely infectious, as readers will quickly discover. And the good news is that you don't have to be a teen to enjoy these films!
