About the Author:

STEPHEN PRINCE is a professor of communication at Virginia Polytechnic Institute.

Review:

Prince offers a year-by-year appropriation of films released in the 1980's....The collection, as a whole, makes clear that the 1980's were the years of blockbusters, sequels, and the release of films on videocassette. Recommended. --Choice

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.During the 1980s, American cinema underwent enormous transformations. Blockbusters like Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., and The Empire Strikes Back earned huge sums for the studios. At the same time, the growth of home video led to new opportunities for independent film production, resulting in many of the decade s best films.Filmmakers responded to the social, political, and cultural conditions of the time, notably the Reagan presidency and the rebirth of the Cold War, which Hollywood films both embraced and critiqued. Hollywood also launched a long-awaited cycle of films about the Vietnam War, exploring its impact both at home and abroad. But science fiction remained the era s most popular genre, ranging from upbeat fantasies to dark, dystopic visions.American Cinema of the 1980s examines the films that marked the decade, including Ordinary People, Body Heat, Blade Runner, Zelig, Platoon, Top Gun, Aliens, Blue Velvet, Robocop, Fatal Attraction, Die Hard, Batman, and sex, lies videotape.
