From Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Reel Culture explores the 50 most influential--yet often unknown to teens--films of the 20th century.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—Most teens recognize the references to This Is Spinal Tap in the Guitar Hero video games or know where the phrase "You talkin' to me?" originated, and this is the book for them. Described as a "cinematic cheat sheet," it discusses 50 classic films from 1938 to 1991 that have had major influences on pop culture. The movies are listed in chronological order, and each entry includes a synopsis and cast, lists of other films by the director or stars, famous lines, discussions of why the film is significant, references to it in pop culture, and interesting trivia. Small black-and-white photos are included. This book is enormous fun for movie buffs to page through and talk about, and there will be inevitable disagreements about films that were included or excluded ("What? They have Harold and Maude but not King Kong?"). This would be a terrific addition for nonfiction leisure reading. Note that because a number of the movies discussed are R-rated, some of the quotations are as well.—Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ
