'The Breakfast Club' To Return To US Theatres For 30th Anniversary

It’s been 30 years since John Hughes’ classic The Breakfast Club hit theatres and changed the teen movie landscape. So what better way is there to celebrate the iconic movie’s birthday, than by bringing it back to the cinemas for a whole new generation.

Hot Tickets! This Weekend’s US Movie Releases: Hyde Park On Hudson, Playing For Keeps, Lay The Favorite, Bad Kids Go To Hell


Bill Murray Roger Michell Laura Linney Olivia Williams Gerard Butler Jessica Biel Rebecca Hall Bruce Willis Stephen Frears Judd Nelson

Kind of a disappointing showing this week folks, best hold on for those Christmas heartwarmers, or, if you’re one of the 56 people left on the globe that haven’t seen Skyfall, that’s probably still showing…

Hyde Park On Hudson has been touted by many as Bill Murray’s next stab at Oscar success. However, the movie itself has hardly received glowing reviews. Directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill) and also starring Laura Linney and Olivia Williams, Hyde Park on Hudson tells the story of Franklin D Roosevelt and his love affair with his distant cousin, Margaret Stuckley. The ‘action’ takes place over a weekend in 1939, when the King & Queen of England visited upstate New York.

Murray’s performance has been hailed as a masterpiece and there have been mutterings of Oscar contention, but it seems that Murray is a jewel in a pretty shabby crown, here. He may carry the film, but it’s clear that it’s a deadweight. Bill will have to keep his fingers crossed that the Academy award voters can stay awake through the historical drama long enough to appreciate his performance.

The Dark Backward Review


OK
Writer/director Adam Rifkin has had an odd Hollywood career. While he's best known for penning late-'90s kid-friendly fare like Mouse Hunt and the surprisingly dark Small Soldiers, Rifkin has been in the business since the late-'80s and has written and directed everything from a sex comedy spoof (The Invisible Maniac) to a gritty urban crime flick (Night at the Golden Eagle). Despite his wandering interests, all of Rifkin's material has a goofy, edgy side. And he's written (and directed) nothing edgier or kookier than 1991's The Dark Backward.

Rifkin wrote the film when he was 19 and probably had it sitting in his proverbial "back pocket" just waiting for the day he had enough clout and experience to get it made. Judd Nelson (great when playing bizarro characters) stars as Marty Malt, a garbage man who moonlights as a terrible stand up comedian. His pal Gus (the seemingly ubiquitous Bill Paxton -- was he in every quirky '90s flick?) thinks Marty's actually pretty funny, but he's really the only one. Worse than Marty's shtick are his attempts at romancing Rosarita (Lara Flynn Boyle).

The Transformers: The Movie Review


Weak
By any sane criteria, The Transformers is a terrible, terrible movie. It has some of the worst feature film animation ever passed off on audiences anywhere, and its plot (Autobots vs. Decepticons by way of a planet-munching giant robot called Unicron) is as threadbare as anything Saturday morning has ever delivered.

But The Transformers has earned a cult following, for a couple of reasons. First it's the only Transformers-themed movie ever made. In case you weren't a kid in the '80s, Transformers were immensely popular toys that could change from some common item (usually a truck or a plane) into a robot. With lasers. Cartoons followed, then the movie.

Fandango Review


Excellent
Kevin Costner didn't get his start in Fandango, but he might as well have. This classic comedy gave us an early-career Costner as head of the "Groovers," a band of five roommates who decide to take one quick road trip after graduating from The University of Texas in 1971 -- only to find the spectre of Vietnam (and marriage) waiting for them in a matter of days.

The Breakfast Club Review


Good
Like a group therapy session with no psychologist in sight (unless that scary principal counts), The Breakfast Club is often considered the Most Meaningful of all the John Hughes teen movies. And while that very well might be the case, that doesn't necessarily make it the best of those movies; that prize would most likely have to go to Sixteen Candles or Pretty in Pink. But one thing that must be said about The Breakfast Club is that it doesn't quite resemble any other teen movie done before or since, a more impressive feat than you might think.

The idea is impressively theatrical for a teen movie: Five teens show up at Shermer High School for Saturday detention, where they'll have to write an essay on who they think they are. All the kids represent different archetypes, of course, and by the end of the day, they'll all have exposed each other's fears and learned that, for all their supposed differences, there really isn't that much that separates them.

Light It Up Review


OK
Light It Up smolders and spits out some smoke, but no fire. The film treads lightly on the volatile crossroads where disenchanted inner city youth meet the desperate state of urban public education. A la Higher Learning, the prevailing simplification of issues concludes with empty and confusing platitudes in answer to some complex stuff.

Queens, New York - it's about as bad as it can get at Lincoln High. Almost nobody has textbooks, snow is blowing through broken windows in dilapidated classrooms, and student favorite Mr. Knowles (Judd Nelson - The Breakfast Club, From the Hip) was just fired for no good reason by heavy-handed Principal Armstrong. When Officer Dante Jackson (Forest Whitaker - The Crying Game, Jason's Lyric) struggles to detain gifted student artist "Ziggy" Malone on bogus charges, Lester Dewitt (Usher Raymond) takes matters into his own hands by seizing the Officer's gun and taking Jackson hostage. Now barricaded against the New York Police Department, the basketball star Lester, the artist "Ziggy," along with a student council member, a punk-rocker, a hustler, and a gang banger have to figure out what they are standing for.

Sex And Bullets Review


OK
Not horrible -- though this Judd Nelson crime comedy doesn't have a whole lot going for it, namely its hampering by a rather obvious script. Nelson and the always-fun Seymour Cassel play hit men who have just killed the son of the local mob boss (permanent gangster character actor Joe Viterelli). Apparently oblivious to their imminent predicament, Nelson decides to look for some booty at the local convenience store and Cassel, who has recently outed himself, heads to the local bar for a strawberry daiquiri. Naturally, Viterelli will encounter our hapless thugs -- but not before they have crossed paths with two local waitresses and a pair of goofball slacker types. All of this comes together in, you guessed it, a heap of sex and bullets.

The film is helped admirably by the two slutty waitresses -- admirably played by Marisa Ryan and Amy Hathaway -- two girls who clearly hate each other only slightly less than they hate their own lives. The rest of the film is a bit forgettable -- a bunch of tired jokes about condoms and froufrou drinks, but at least it's not a total loss. Here's to hoping Ryan and Hathaway move on to brighter things!

Dark Asylum Review


Terrible
Stop me if you've heard this one before: A mental patient (Larry Drake) terrorizes a comely doctor (Paulina Porizkova) in a mental asylum... and no one can get out!

The only thing clever about Dark Asylum is its casting of Judd Nelson as a fellow inmate who ends up helping Porizkova's doctor to escape "The Trasher," an obese and nearly mute psychopath who lives up to his moniker by destroying everything he touches... including his victims.

Light It Up Review


Weak

There is not a single original thought in "Light It Up," a ghetto-transplanted, hostage-situation "Breakfast Club" in which a mathematically diverse group of teenagers are trapped in their high school, keeping a lone authority figure under siege in the name of getting a little respect.

Written and directed by "Black Rain"-scripter Craig Bolotin, it pilfers its urban angst high school air from "Lean On Me," "187" and other good kids-bad school movies. Its paint-by-numbers plot points are lifted from hostage flicks like "Dog Day Afternoon" and "The Negotiator."

The plot: After a scuffle that ends with the on-campus cop (Forest Whitaker) getting shot in the leg, six students take over the school, holding the cop hostage and demanding improvements to their learning environment like books for every student and window repairs.
