With the sad passing of writer/director John Hughes yesterday, we're featuring an all-Hughes JBO. The man left a lasting impression on audiences and filmmakers throughout the 1980s, and his movies helped define that generation while providing them with numerous lines to quote.
Recommendation of the Week:
Nothing says the 1980s more loudly than The Breakfast Club, and the iconic Simple Minds song "Don't You (Forget About Me)" has been drilled into many heads as an anthem for Generation X. It's a near perfect film, although John Hughes' original cut was two and a half hours long. Universal trimmed it down to 97 minutes, and destroyed all of the negatives. Talk about boneheaded. Apparently Hughes himself had the only complete copy. Let's hope we can see it some day.
Read for the full list on a system-by-system basis just after the break. As usual, we'll see you at the popcorn st ... well, actually we won't see you at all. But you catch our drift. Plus, be sure to tell us what you'll be watching, or what you've seen recently that bowled you over.
