Product Description

Product Description

Movies, motion pictures, pictures, cinema, or simply films, it doesn’t matter what name you use for them, for they still reach into our lives. They entertain us in many ways, sometimes they make us laugh, occasionally they scare us and frequently they move us in some form or way. It doesn’t really matter if they scare, make us cry, inspire or change our emotions in some other way, they still reach out from the screen and touch our very lives, it’s in that way they have influence on how or what we actually feel.

The Top 50 Most Influential Gay Themed Movies of All Time explores this to the full in terms of gay movies, that’s movies with or about a gay central character or based around a plot line of subject of particular interest to the gay community. Using a unique scoring method comprised of original box office takings, video and DVD sales, audience numbers, enduring popularity or affection, and how influential its audience deemed it to be. The latter was extracted from thousands of nominations or votes if you will, from cinema lovers around the world, people just like you.

Exhaustive research, time and dedication have been spent on bringing you a comprehensive guide that features the top 50 films using that unique calculation method. Each movie has a complete and honestly frank reviews, plot synopsis and sometimes production notes or inside info. Most entries also include comments a or messages from other film goers from around the world, who voted for the movie they thought had been the most influential. Jason Shaw exhaustively researched this book and compiled it with love, care and dedication.



Although The Top 50 Most Influential Gay Themed Movies of All Time has been written with the gay community in mind, it should not be seen as an exclusively ‘gay’ book! It offers information, insight and entertainment to film watchers and cinema goers from all walks of life. Almost a third of the people who nominated films were indeed straight! It is inclusive rather than exclusive, entertaining to people from all walks of life, from every background, every sexuality or ethnicity, just the way life should be.

4.0 out of 5 stars useful 10 Nov 2013
By Furio
Format:Kindle Edition
The author is English and it shows, not only in the sometimes annoying idioms (some of which were not to be found in the Oxford dictionary which is usually quite comprehensive as far as slang goes) but also in his attention to British and European output. Said attention was not as thorough as it could have been but it is there.

The premise, where he explains his method for selecting the top fifty, is clear but a little dull and could use a revision.
A thorough revision could also take care of the many typos that pepper the whole book and are sometimes disrupting.
The author mentions that his PERSONAL top 50 would be different: as one buys a critical essay to experience someone's opinions it would have been good (and feasible) to put within brackets the "personal" ranking, giving the reader a further element to evaluate the films.

The film reviews vary in conciseness and effectiveness but are all useful.
I think cinema aficionados will probably profit to a somewhat limited extent from them, but the collection still has its use for young persons willing to explore gay cinema or for older people such as myself who are no film experts but wish to do the same.
As e-books do not bear the brunt of printing expenses I would take the top 50 to a top 100 in a second edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting 22 Sep 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
this is a very interesting book that went into depth about these movies and I discovered interesting points that I did not know - even though I only recognised about half the movies. I enjoyed the vibrancy of the writing.
