Oh, for fuck's sake [:D]

The Breakfast Club is my favourite.




chewbacasnapsak -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (16/7/2012 12:11:32 AM)

Remember that episode of Friends when they are all playing catch.

We need a gif of Phoebe putting the ball down.




Shifty Bench -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (16/7/2012 12:17:18 AM)

I was answering the question asked of me, was I supposed to keep the joke going and have the thread locked for not technically being on topic? [:D]




chewbacasnapsak -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (16/7/2012 12:21:15 AM)

I suppose your right...it could have been the next 1080p though [:D]




Shifty Bench -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (16/7/2012 12:34:31 AM)

[:D]

Nothing can top that, you hear? Nothing!

So, what's your favourite 80s Brat Pack film?




Lazarus munkey -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (16/7/2012 1:01:11 AM)

The Breakfast Club.

And the coolest thing that's ever happened in any movie in the history of movies is Ally Sheedy catching a can of Coke without looking.

I fell in love with her at that point and have actively stalked her ever since.[:D]

I'm going with St Elmos Fire, I must have moped around listening to the cure and then watched that loads of times when I was around 15, as above Ally Sheedy rocked in this. BC was close second.




sanchia -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (16/7/2012 7:16:20 AM)

I hate The Breakfast Club because of this scumbag...

They're all a bag of shit.




1BritonsView -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (1/8/2012 11:12:14 PM)

It would have to be The Breakfast Club. I must have watched that a 100 times.




LjStronge -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (2/8/2012 8:56:42 AM)

I may need full terms as to what qualify's? As I am stupid and don;t understand

Weird Science

Pretty In Pink, by a mile.

Mainly for...

Pretty In Pink, by a mile.

Some Kind of Wonderful has a name that mixes Some Like It Hot, Kind Hearts and Coronets and It's a Wonderful Life, and fixes the problem with Pretty in Pink (which is also great). So that.

Breakfast Club. There can't be any debate there.

Ferris Bueller is John Hughes' best work though

Way to slice through my absolutism.

John Hughes is a great teenager's filmmaker, he seems important when you're 16 but gradually gets more embarrassing the older you get, much like most things one thought or felt at that age. For me Ferris was him almost self parodying how serious something like Breakfast Club took itself, which I still like in a nostalgic way, basically if you're a young white middle-class American things will probably turn out ok.

BTW, that avatar is a thing of beauty.

I don't really agree with that, I think his treatment of teenage themes plays to all ages - I actually prefer them now to when I was 15, which may be a criticism (of both him and me). It's true that there are a lot of films (and books and records) that seem incredibly profound in adolescence, only for their virtues to evaporate when you grow up (hello Gilbert Grape), but I don't think Hughes's movies play that way.

Depends where you are in life I suppose then. I'm just leaving my teenage years and am constantly mortified at the mess of emotional overreaction and hyperbole I used to be, and if there's one film that taps into that it'd be The Breakfast Club.

Either that or I'm too cynical in my old age.

I'm 28 and I still wake up in a cold sweat about this most nights. [:D]

It was a great post about Hughes, by the way, even if it didn't chime with my experiences.




Harry Tuttle -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (2/8/2012 3:15:14 PM)

I've always thought that The Breakfast Club was an awful, awful film. Even back in the 80's. I could tolerate, but never truly enjoy, Bueller at one point but I think it's a cringe inducing embarassment these days, and have done for years.

Planes, Trains & Automobiles is miles better than both IMO as are Home Alone and Uncle Buck. Seeing as this is the brat pack discussion and not just a John Hughes back catalogue one I'd also choose Weird Science over both films any day of the week. If that doesn't qualify then I'm struggling to be honest.




rick_7 -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (2/8/2012 3:19:21 PM)

I've never seen Weird Science, but I dug out my copy last night, so should hopefully see it this weekend.

I haven't seen it for years. Not sure how it would hold up for me these days but I absolutely loved it when I was around 14-16. There's a craziness to Anthony Michael Hall's performance that absolutely cracks me up every time.

Cool. [:)]




NCC1701A -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (2/8/2012 3:36:12 PM)

Young Guns but I do like Weird Science as well.




directorscut -> RE: Favourite 80s Brat Pack film? (2/8/2012 3:43:06 PM)

Futurama retroactively made The Breakfast Club better than it actually was.
