Generation Oscar®


Generation Oscar® Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In author Randolph Michaels' first book Flashbacks to Happiness, the subject of discussion was the music of the 1980's. This time around, Michaels covers an even longer span of 20 years in Generation Oscar, an analysis of the 50 greatest films that were ever nominated for an Academy Award. Five of them even won the coveted Best Picture Oscar.

From Stand By Me in 1986 to Munich in 2005, all of the films reviewed herein have managed to stay on Randolph Michaels' own radar screen ever since they were first released on the big screen. He strongly believes these are the movies most likely to impress even the harshest of critics and withstand the test of time. So why not rent them from your local video store and judge them for yourself?

Film buffs and those who follow the annual Academy Awards should find Generation Oscar to be indispensable. It is an insightful and comprehensive account of how film has the power to be the most important tool directors skillfully use in consistently inspiring, informing and entertaining us year after year.
