Yep, saw an advertisement they will be showing it here, when we saw 50 Shades.

Newly Restored Version of The Breakfast Club Set to World Premiere at SXSW



I want to attend just for the Q&A session with Ally and Molly. The movie is a bonus.

How the cast fought to remove a dirty scene from the script..  Knew about this, wasn't sure if you guys did, but d*mn that would have ruined the freakin' movie.

Yeah, this is stuff I've known for years. I still found reading the link fun. I'll read anything that's written about John Hughes or The Breakfast Club. As for Rick Moranis, I cringe EVERY TIME I hear about this 'Russian Janitor'. This would have done more harm to the movie than the Skinny Dipping scene IMO.

‘The Breakfast Club’ Originally Had A **** Scene And Other Trivia You Might Not Know



It seems like EVERY Website recycles the same stories, but dresses it up a little bit different than the last. You've read them before.....but given the fact that only  h a r d c o r e  TBC fans reside here, re-read them again.  ;D

So I just got back from the theater.  Packed theater, kind of nice for a rainy Thursday.  Lots of girls.  But happily, a couple in costume.  Girl across the aisle from me was dressed as Bender and after the movie I saw her other friends were the other characters (no Andrew, but the other four).  But there was also an Ally that came and she was SPOT ON.  Wow, I mean the costume was almost perfect, she had the look... it was impressive.  Worth getting out of the house for.

Okay, the movie was in 2K, so there were these scanline things going on, vertical, that just kept distracting me... gave me a little bit of a headache.  I don't think those will show up on the Blu-Ray, but it's fair warning that we're going to get a 4K sometime further down the road.  And the colours felt kind of muted in areas, I'd need to compare and contrast but I think that the Netflix HD version has a more vibrant look.

I will say, at the end of the movie, a fair number of people in the crowd held their arm up in triumph.  So that happened.

I love the image of people in the audience throwing their fist up in the air. Thanks for that.  :)

It was neat.  And they all did the right one, I almost did the wrong one (and I wasn't as enthusiastic as the others for some reason).

and I gotta say, I hadn't been to cons in a couple years, so seeing people in costume warmed my heart.

I've fallen into the nostalgia rabbit hole on Tumblr... now in my defense, I'm getting some ideas and inspiration, but there's quite a few publicity stills and pictures from The Breakfast Club (and other projects from the same year) popping up.  But here's one that I've never seen before









Just thought I'd share.

Amazing all what goes on behind a scene.

Sweet Bard of Youth

Currently reading (re-reading that is) a piece on John. Fantastic read if you haven't already done so.
