Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw, it's time for the teen movie poll. For some it'll be a chance to vote for films that stir up memories of their own youth, for others a chance to show how deep and haunted their teen years were. Some (MonsterCat) will be using it to vote for films featuring 30 year old women pretending to be 17 and horny. Whatever your faves, put together a list and send it to me. You can vote for films, t.v. shows, books, all the usual. I'll edit an email address in once Hotmail stops being a dick and lets me sign up a new account.

Are teen films films starring teens or films aimed at teens? Or both? Basically, can I have Harry Potter?

Oh that opening quote is just sublime.

Sounds fantastic to me - I expect everyone to vote for I Capture the Castle.

Do slasher films along the lines of Halloween/Scream count?

Yep, Potter is fine. Basically, the focus of the film/whatever has to be the teens. With the coming of age aspect, I'm willing to allow younger or a little older. So the kids in Stand by Me aren't teens, but the film is eligible. With older, if it's about people in their early-mid 20s but the coming of age aspect is the focus of the story, then it's fine. What isn't allowed is when the coming of age/teen aspect is a subplot to a story focused on the adults - American Beauty, for example.

Yep, as long as the focus of the slashing is the teens.

So Pilgrim books and movie is ok? Also how are you handling adaptations?

Pilgrim is fine, it was actually one of the first things I thought of when I expanded the list to include early/mid 20s stuff. I'm not sure what you mean about handling adaptations though.

Like with Pilgrim or Potter, do the films/books have one entry or separate entries?

You mean if you wanted to vote for Pilgrim would the film and graphic novels all be one entry? No, I'll take the Pilgrim books all as one entry, but the film has to be on its own because it's a different medium.

I'd like to, but as of yet cannot think of an example.

I was thinking of things that exploded because of a teen audience - punk, rap, rock 'n' roll, jug bands, that kinda thing. For teen specific - things like Teenager in Love, I Saw Her Standing There, My Generation, Teenage Kicks, Smells Like Teen Spirit, etc.

Ok, anyone up for bringing this back from the dead? My listed out period is done, I think. Feel capable of running one again.

I might have a go but if The Catcher in the Rye wins there will be words, harsh words.

Oh and any suggestions would be welcome.

Is this still running? I think I have an unfinished list somewhere.
