              At the start of the new millennium, fans who attended science fiction conventions persuaded Flynn and Blackwood-aka The Film Doctors -to conduct a survey of the Top Ten Science Films of the 20th Century. They then embarked on a ten-year odyssey to gather thousands of fan votes. T...he result: a list of science fiction films that probably contains at least one of your favorites. Each film was considered from its inception, to the pre-production period, through production and finally the audience's reaction, reviews, critical responses and interviews with directors, producers and stars of the movies. An educational enlightening of the motion picture industry, it shows that it truly all starts with a thought, a vision, which when fed, honed and supported becomes where no man has gone before.

              Everything I Know About Life I Learned From James Bond by John Flynn and Bob Blackwood is a light-hearted but thoroughly researched look into the world of James Bond. For the adolescent male growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, 007 was everything that young men were not. He was sex...ually irresistible to women. He was well dressed and well groomed, socially astute, clever and witty, athletic, debonair, dangerous, and heroic. He drove the coolest cars, possessed the greatest gadgets, traveled to the most exotic places, made love to the most beautiful women, and had the most fun of any cinematic hero. James Bond represented everything that authors John and Bob wanted to be. And now, as they look back over the years as middle-aged adults and college professors, both realize how much Bond helped re-define their understanding of what it meant to be manly, particularly at a time in our culture when the roles of men and women were becoming so fractured and confused. This book provides witty and insightful aphorisms about everyday things, ranging from girls to food and drink, cars to clothing and style, and life lessons to fun facts about culture and civilization, as reflected through the prism of James Bond, the world's most stylish and cultured secret agent.
