The 1980s was the decade when the action film as it’s now known came into being. Nonstop, big-budget excitement became the standard as epic adventures like Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Road Warrior set the tone for the summer blockbusters of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Chuck Norris. Homages (and ripoffs) made with lesser budgets followed every hit, especially with the advent of direct-to-video releases. Providing detailed commentary on 284 films, this book explores the excitement, audacity and sheer weirdness of ’80s low budget action cinema, from the American Ninja series to dime-a-dozen barbarian pictures to such bargain-basement productions as The Courier of Death, Kill Squad and Samurai Cop.

Over the decades, gay cinema has reflected the community's journey from persecution to emancipation to acceptance. Politicised dramas like Victim in the 60s, The Naked Civil Servant in the 70s, and the AIDS cinema of the 80s have given way in recent years to films which celebrate a vast array of gay life-styles. Gay films have undergone a major shift, from the fringe to the mainstream and the 2005 Academy Awards were dubbed ' the Gay Oscars' with gongs going to Brokeback Mountain, Capote and Transamerica. Producers began clamouring to back gay-themed movies, including I Love You Philip Morris with Jim Carey and Ewan McGregor, and Gus Van Sant's Milk, starring Sean Penn as Harvey Milk, the first prominent American political figure to be elected to office on an openly gay ticket back in the 70s. So loved was he that his brutal and homophobic assassination by ex-policeman Daniel White sparked the biggest riots in gay history. Out at the Movies looks back, decade by decade, at the history of gay cinema, celebrating the films which have defined the genre. Indie films, the avant-garde, sex on screen, bad guys, lesbian lovers, transgender films, camp comedies, musicals and gay rom-coms -- all are featured here. As well as highloighting the key movements and triumphs in gay cinema, the author includes information on gay filmmakers and actors, and their influence within the industry. Interspersed throughout are some of the most iconic scenes from gay cinema and the most memorable dialogue.

Not horrible enough to be good, just not a good movie. Kenny Loggins, master of the '80s mullet-and-beard combo, has had his music in some of the best movies of the '80s, like Top Gun and Footloose. The song he made for Caddyshack 2 was ...

Long ago, prophets spoke the word of God to the people. These prophets were full of zeal and sometimes madness. God got as creative as he could with this eccentric bunch. He had some of them lay on their side in the mud for days; some of them he showed visions of alien spacecrafts and creatures with eyes all over their body. Their words crossed other dimensions and predicted future events. He spoke through them to a nation that had lost its way. Just a little like us today. Can I get an amen? This book is written to the church of America, the lost, shinning beacon of hope, the great imperialist empire once called a "Christian nation" that never was. This book is to everyone who feels like something is wrong. Something is very, very wrong with us. This book is for those who are tired of a group of people trying to scare us into believing in a god that wants to burn us. What else should I call it? Puppies and Napalm.
