My favourite movie of all time
Brad went into the store, took one look at Hot Topic Chick and thought to himself "I'm gonna marry that broad".
Well, to be fair, who wouldn't have ? ;)
Well.....according to a previous Midnight (I think it was "Friends with Benefits"), Brad .....took one look at Hot Topic Chick and thought to himself "I'm gonna take her to Pound Town!" :D
uhm dude... brad is gay as fuck
Did you guys stop by chik fil a or some where and pick up breakfast to sneak in the theater?
Never liked this movie. Found it depressing, and just plain boring.
In high school, I was like a wimpy version of Bender.
As a non-white non-american person...yeah, this movie did and still does nothing for me. it could be that, as a kid, there was no one on screen to identify with. Not even Estevez, who one could argue is technically not caucasian. I guess as a kid, I might have been looking for someone physically or even verbally identifiable as close to what I looked and sounded like. It was like watching a foreign film - you watch it in a detached distant way. There are many many - MANY - movies that are considered classics...but some non-white people grow up viewing it in a detached way. For example, Top Gun, another movie that just does absolutely nothing for me, but some guys who grew up in the 80s LOVE that movie, lol. So yeah, breakfast club, eh, glad it was good nostalgia for ya.
Jesus, why are you so concerned about race? I'm not white either, have grown up outside the Untied States and I still find this movie a relateable classic. It's probably just not your type of movie.
Why not? It's a real factor that affects how you respond to a movie - especially kids. I'm not sure what "type" of movie Breakfast Club is - perhaps you can tell me. But why did I not feel nostalgia towards it? Probably because as a kid, I was, technically, racist, lol. I looked for people that looked like me and since there were none in the breakfast club I didn't find it relatable.
I just found it interesting in retrospect how it affected my views of the movie and wanted to share it, perhaps others have the same or different experience. I now can intellectually admire the movie, or maybe I'm going with the zeitgeist, but I have no nostalgia towards it.
I think you're may be being too sensitive talking about race. It's a real aspect that affects all of us. Denying it's effects or censoring myself would be dishonest, no? We are here to discuss movies and what we think about them, right? Should I have said "Dude! I love that movie, good times, 80's movies rule!" - is that what you really want? No dissenting opinion, only people who like the movie should post? Sorry (but not sorry) to disappoint.
As a white non-american person... Coming to America has been one of my favorite movies since I was a kid.
Well, since you are non-American, your "review" is meaningless. What you are is a xenophobic "troll", who contribute nothing to the conversation. Now, had you mentioned an equivalent film that you could relate to, and used that for context, then your words would have some merit. No, you denigrate a classic film that you didn't like, and denigrate others for liking it. And as a non-white American, this film relates to me. Why? It's about dealing with the peer pressure of being part of the clique culture, and learning that in spite the differences, everyone is the same, which is the whole point of the film. Then again, you would know this if you actually paid attention to the film beyond the superficial, given the nature of your opening statement. Chao.
I've never seen The Breakfast Club, but I have heard it recommended many times to me. I guess what simply turns me off, is I just hate young people. Always have hated young people and movies about young people in education to.
I had detention as well for MISSING AN ASSIGNMENT, if a mother freakin flare gun went off in my locker I would have been ejected lickity split.
I want to like this movie, but I can't. I just can't dammit.
What I think of with Molly and Judd's characters is, "Wasn't Molly Ringwald like 17? And Judd Nelson was, what, 26?"
So, how do you find out about these AMC re-releases? I'm probably just searching poorly, but I can never find any information about what AMC's planning to rerelease, and I always find out about it through these videos (which makes it too late, obviously) - a lot of them I'd be very interested in going to the theater and seeing. Is there a trick, or are you just better at keeping up to speed with what's going to be in your local theaters in the coming week because you're always there for the site?
Brad reads the AMC website every week to see the upcoming releases and plan the schedule for filming Midnight Reviews. Fathom Events also do similar releases, they're the ones showing Friday and Sound of Music next week. those you can actually look up on their website some time in advance.
So, did Brad stay back a couple years?
Never really been a big fan of the movie. It's not terribly deep, the humor is flat, and in no way was it reflective of my time as a kid in high school. The characters are unapologetically stereotypical. The conflicts are the epitome of first-world white people problems with nothing at stake. It also features the most cringe-worthy pot-smoking scene ever put to screen in cinema.
Since you two chatted about what's coming up, I still say:
Ha! Dave hates the Sound of Music. While I love that movie, I can totally see how someone might hate it. " Getting hit in the head with a Valentine's day card," is probably the best way to put it. But I could listen to Julie Andrews singing all day. And a young Christopher Plummer was damn sexy. What can I say. Oh and I prefer Sixteen Candles to Breakfast club. Breakfast Club is okay. It's just not my favorite John Hughes movie.
Here's the whole joke:
A naked lady walks into a bar carrying a poodle in one hand and a three foot salami in the other...
Bartender says "well I guess you won't be needing a drink"...
Naked lady says "I got these for my husband"
Bartender says "GOOD TRADE !"
On the front page, you say "mean time" but the word is "meantime", unless you're talking about some very angry time. You're welcome!
I saw Molly Ringwald perform a jazz set at the theater of my local community college last October. She even released an album of covers, too. A great show!
I enjoyed this the first time I watched this movie. I have trouble enjoying it now because of the stupid makeover for Ally Sheedy's character. Funny hlw I can relate to that character more now then when I first watched it and I guess the cliche of turning an already lovely girl noticeable by making her look like everyone else just is depressing. I can see the maybe the Cinderella type plot line they were going for I guess, but still is a weak part of the whole story to me.
Wait, this was a movie?
I thought this was a "Brad Tries" with Denny's new breakfast club menu.
they didnt make her noticable with the makeover, they were into her before that so your entire whining post is nonsense
Wow, there's so little comments. That's probably because not much of your viewers have even watched this movie, I watched it ages ago but it probably doesn't hold up as I remember it.
I loooove this movie my favorites are the criminal and the basket case.
I guess i was a combo of the basket case and him not to the extreme
Haha you were chandler bing i love his character XD
This movie is great well written well acted and all
Yea ally's character looked better before the makeover did i hate the idea of a makeover....eh i hate makeover movies but it wasn't so evil in this one.
I love Brad's face when Dave says Ally Sheedy probably experimented with lesbianism in art school XD
brad please learn to laugh like a human being
omg these idiots love talking about themselves so much, only 25% of this vid is about the movie
Love this movie.
My comment is about Nurse Ratchet in OFOTCCN. I am a RN and they actually showed this film in the University I attended. She is a horror as a nurse and you probably don't really get her unless you are a nurse. One great example is the speech she uses to keep Murphy in the Asylum. He is ready to get out. She appears caring but if you really listen and watch her, it is all an act. She uses a false approach making it seem as though she wants to help him, that they are abandoning him if they let him go, but she is really getting revenge on him and keeping him under her control indefinitely! It is a chilling moment. She very calculatingly maker her appear the good guy by twisting the system to destroy him. True evil. Watch it again and pay attention to how she really is, totally abusing her position and betraying the entire concept of patient care.
I haven't seen this movie in 10 years. I wonder what's changed for me.
I really didn't like this movie. I was the nerd in school, and the other get hot chicks while I get a writing assignment? Fuck that.
you still gotta do the sound of music vlog!
