If you love 80s movies this book is a must read.

If you grew up in the 80s chances are you watched many of these movies on a new VCR; Back to the Future was the first movie I watched on one. It changed how we watched entertainment forever and influenced culture in a variety of ways-lots of them listed in this book.

Besides the movie summaries and how they were platforms for many actors careers, this book also covers the real and sometimes fictional geography of where the stories took place and/or were filmed.

Well researched, narrated, fun and original, I will make my way to the bookstore on my next day off and purchase it.

Highly recommended.
