"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Dozens of books have been written about the science fiction film, examining the genre from a number of critical perspectives. What author Peter Guttmacher has produced with Legendary Sci-Fi Movies is a solid introduction to many of the greatest box-office hits and classics in the history of the genre. Starting with the early classics such as Metropolis, and continuing on through 2001: A Space Odyssey, Planet of the Apes, and Blade Runner, the author briefly examines how and why each film was made. He then offers a concise analysis of the movie's place both in the genre and in our pop culture. That the author has produced previous books for young people is evident in his usage of trivia quizzes and silly chapter titles. Even so, Guttmacher takes his subject seriously, and shows an obvious affection for the genre. The book is part of a series in which he examines other genres such as Legendary Horror Films, Legendary War Movies, Legendary Comedies, Legendary Westerns, and Legendary Love Stories. --Stanley Wiater
