Trailer

I can't say enough good things about The Breakfast Club, other than that this movie, right now, sits at the top of my Favorite Movie Of All Time list. Where to begin with this one? First off, this is John Hughes crown jewel in a treasure chest full of diamonds. The script is hands down one of the best ever with regards to fully realized characters with so much back-story, that we already "know" all the main characters: The Brain, The Jock, The Princess, The Basket-Case and The Criminal. I would be remiss if I didn't include The Principal and The Janitor in this group as well when listing the stereotypes that they each end up owning.

The amazing thing about these characters, is that even though they are all different from one another, they all have a common bond, which leads us, the viewer, to find something we can relate to in each one. It's really hard to pick out a favorite actor / actress or performance here, because this is the definition of a true ensemble. The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts applies here.

The original cut of the movie clocked in at 2 1/2 hours long, which John Hughes has the only completed copy on VHS. The whereabouts of this copy is currently unknown, which obviously has a ton of deleted scenes. One of the deleted scenes can be found in the trailer referring to the "Allison-hugging-herself" scene. I hope that one day it will be found and released as part of a huge Special Edition DVD.

Apart from the great dialogue (i.e. monologues), characters and set pieces within TBC, the biggest thing for me here is that the movie itself made me want to become a writer of short stories, screenplays, characters, scenes and skits. And whenever I feel like my writing is becoming stagnant or just out and out writers block, I always come back to TBC for inspiration. Just because I watch this one at least 2-3 times a year doesn't mean I always have writers block either, so shut up with any wise-cracks. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/new_tongue.gif)  I just get immense pleasure from watching this one every time.

This is a Buy for sure. Duh!!

I'm sure I will add more about my thoughts on TBC over time as they come to me. Right now, it's just the tip of the iceberg.

The Breakfast Club's Newest Member: Kevin Smith (http://www.ifc.com/news/2010/08/kevin-smith-breakfast-club.php)

The Film Society of Lincoln Center  (http://viewaskew.com/events/thebreakfastkev/)

I reeeeeeeeeeeally hope that the Q&A with the original cast from The Breakfast Club will end up online somewhere so that I can watch. It is set for Monday September 19- 20, 2011.

That's TODAY!!!

I completely get your perspective on getting inspiration. I firmly believe I write better today because I get myself involved in well written pieces. It rub’s off on you if you let it. It is an art form and when you immerse yourself in it, you begin to ‘get’ structure, pace, and the various other aspects of good story telling. John Hughs was exceptional of taking those thoughts and writing and encapsulating it all into a solid film.

I kind of have the itch to watch it again today. But I won't. Got other movies in the Que to watch first. I'm going to run through most of John Hughes stuff in order this week.

I had such a crush on Ally Sheedy for a little while. Not necessarily for Breakfast Club, though the emerging from a cocoon into a beautiful swan scene made my heart pitter-patter... It was more for WarGames, Oxford Blues and Short Circuit.
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Chiprocks1 on September 20, 2011, 11:07:55 am
Yeah, my crush for Ally also happened because of WarGames. I had already seen her in Bad Boys (the Sean Penn movie). But she was hardly in it to really take notice. But once WarGames came out, as in the words of The Geek, "Very hot! Very hot!" (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_biggrin.gif)

A little off topic here but still related, if you have never seen Anthony Michael Hall's TV series The Dead Zone, there are a couple of separate episodes in which Ally Sheedy and John Kapelos guest star. The series is phenomenal and Ally's performance was a winner. Fantastic is more like it.

On location shooting a movie in Toronto I believe. He still should have made an effort to attend the event. To this day, I don't think the entire cast has ever been seen in public together. There is always 1 person missing. Bah!!!!

FYI, I have 5 Movie Posters framed and hanging on my wall. One of those 5 is, you guessed it: The Breakfast Club. Original one-sheet. Wheeeeeee!!!  (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/GleeClappingHands.gif) I have probably another 20 or so movie poster rolled up and packed into cardboard cylinders. If I had more wall space, I'd have all of them framed and hanging on the walls.

Post by: Neumatic on July 20, 2013, 09:59:21 pm
It honestly is hard for me sometimes to realize she's also the hot girlfriend in Wargames and the quirky girl in Short Circuit.  I'm sure my unfamiliarity (seeing them once every few years) has something to do with that.  I think she also played Kyle XY's mom, which was kind of perfect casting.

Loved her in WarGames (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/wargames-(1983)/msg1672/#msg1672). If you ever get the chance, check out Ally's guest-staring role on Anthony Michael Hall's The Dead Zone for a mini reunion of sorts. One of my fave episodes in the series, but for different reasons than you'd expect.
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Neumatic on July 20, 2013, 10:10:19 pm
I promised Nicole DeBoer years ago I'd watch Dead Zone and I saw a chunk of the pilot and that's it.  Gotta get back into it, cause I liked the movie and I liked the pilot.  Cause I'm the guy who will keep a promise to someone I've only met once and will probably never see again.

Watching TBC with the commentary, I haven't listened to a movie commentary in SO long.  But I'm having trouble hearing them so I might just cut it off and watch something else.

The Blu-Ray.  But it's just Anthony Michael Hall and Judd Nelson.  And like I said, it's hard to hear what they're saying.  At least it is for me.

I'll probably watch this again before returning it. 
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Chiprocks1 on July 20, 2013, 10:35:19 pm
I didn't know the Blu-ray had a commentary track. I still have the original DVD release. I skipped on the 'High School Collection' dvd since it was just the same DVD, but with a new cover. So, this Blu-ray version is news to me. Surprised to hear that it's only two people contributing to the track. Should be everyone involved, cast and crew.
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Neumatic on July 20, 2013, 10:41:15 pm
The whole cast was in special features.  But just the two guys on the commentary.  It's sort of like the Stand By Me commentary track.  Although really, what else is there that hasn't been said that needs to be said?

The Breakfast Club: 25 Years Later is an episode of Sminterview, I noticed while I was going through my iTunes library, so I'm listening to it now.  The movie is so fresh in my mind that I'm literally picturing them all in their same outfits and ages, even Judd Nelson leaning back in his chair in that Bender sort of way.  It's funky.  And WAY more informative than the commentary track, I think.

It was a special on Epix, I think... but Kevin Smith had a tape recorder going (although it cuts out the end of a GREAT set-up) and it's an episode of his podcast Smoviemakers.  Well worth a listen.

Amazingly enough, it was in the "related" section on the video of Rosa Parks on To Tell The Truth.

Had NO idea that Ally Sheedy wrote a book as a kid, that's amazing.  Now I'm really down on myself for not being that saavy as a kid (I mean, I did self-publish a comic book in the 9th grade, but it was terrible, just awful).

I've got a file with every number from 0000 to 9999 with one space between them.  What I do is I go to the final cap, figure out what number that is, then edit down the number list to just those numbers, then I do a find/replace, turning the spaces into bifurcated links, basically creating a list of every image name.  Then I open up that document in Firefox and do a DownThemAll, and in about two minutes, I have the entire gallery.

Took me long enough to do that.  And don't be a fool, freakin' google the numbers and have that generate a list.  And don't use a file editor that automatically turns them into "link," you want that full string.

I wound up tossing and turning for two hours last night and came up with dialogue for my teen comedy that's the whole "hammer dropped" dramatic moment, and it actually made me cry in the moment, but I have this doubt in my mind as to whether it's really me or the ghost of TBC influencing me.  The character always had this feel of being a mix of Bender and Allison (antisocial bullsh*t artist testing people's limits, carrying a giant bag full of stuff, etc) so I don't know if my concern for that is just bleeding over into something genuinely good or if what I think is good (actually the best little chunk of something I've written in a while) will be perceived as the derivative attention-seeking pap I suspect it is.
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Chiprocks1 on December 29, 2014, 11:23:34 am
Doesn't matter if it's "bleeding over" from the movie. When I'm struggling to find something to write, I purposely put on my favorite movies that have always gotten the juices flowing the the lead moving on paper and one of those movies happens to be TBC. It's still coming from inside you regardless of what pushed you there and that's something you can hold onto. I've written countless things after watching certain movies and I'm still proud of a lot of the things I've written over the years and wouldn't change anything at all. Consider yourself lucky you have something. A lot of people still can't come up with anything, even with help.

I guess it's just imposter syndrome rearing it's ugly head, combined with the fact I can see the parts that went into this project (Weir Science, Eight Days A Week, Breakfast Club, etc).  Plus it's not even a draft yet, so it IS just parts.  You mind if I send you that little bit?

Well, that concludes my Mini Alley Sheedy marathon, which wasn't planned at all. With WarGames (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/wargames-(1983)/msg1672/#msg1672) last night and The Breakfast Club tonight, I feel like I need more Sheedy right now. I'm almost tempted to bust out The Dead Zone and watch her guest spot where she reunited with Anthony Michael Hall for one episode. Looking at the date of the original review, I can't believe it's been 3 years since I last watch TBC. What the f*ck! The movie just stilll kicks so much ass.

There isn't anything else I can say that I already haven't said before. But I will say this, the confession scene as a whole is just pure magic in both the written word and how it was edited together. It's a brilliant scene that allows each character to bare their souls in an organic way without it being forced. It flows like wine with peaks and valleys. I don't know how much research you guys have done on TBC, but I can tell you one thing that has stuck with me is that during the confession scene, John Hughes was sitting on the floor behind the camera. Very few people were even allowed to watch that scene live. I got that from an article I read years ago that I still have and he was in tears when the actors (Molly and Anthony) broke down. I need to bust that magazine out and read it again. It was about an 8 page article with a lot of behind the scenes stuff that I haven't scene in print since then.

One other thing, I still own the first DVD pressing for TBC and I'm still p*ssed off that the movie hasn't gotten any sort of Deluxe treatment. I was hopeful with the 2 different versions that have come after the original, only be disappointed through word of mouth that they aren't worth upgrading to. I would like a super clear print of the movie because the copy I have just looks so.....meh. I can't imagine the Blu-ray copy is going to be that much of an improvement.

Post by: Neumatic on December 30, 2014, 12:06:27 am
That's interesting about the confession scene, I never knew that.  Or maybe I did and forgot.  I did know that the quote at the beginning was Molly Ringwald's suggestion.

I'm kicking myself for not outlining the movie last time I saw it, the whole thing is actually divided up in interesting ways, and I should have taken it apart to figure out the structure, but when I thought about it, I was too far in.

Yeah, Hughes flicks on disc kinda suck, very bare-bones and so on... like, the Ferris Bueller Blu-Ray doesn't have the commentary that the DVD has.  I will say that my Netflix HD stream was... perfectly acceptable.  Better than listening to the audio on my iPod or waiting for the show to come on cable, which are my options until it pops up again or I find a disc.


Oh, don't forget that Ally Sheedy is in Kyle XY.  She plays Kyle's real mother, which is kinda perfect casting for that character.

Um, have we talked about these yet?  The Lost Films of John Hughes (http://splitsider.com/2012/07/the-lost-projects-of-john-hughes/).  Sh*t I gotta start writing faster, that's an insane amount of projects.  But at least I do the mixtape soundtracks.  Honestly though, I think a good deal of these ideas are probably lost for a good reason, and that's fine.

I actually have read the script for Tickets, but despite the fact that the article says John Hughes didn't like to rewrite, he would rewrite stuff every night when the movie was being made.  The script for Planes Trains and Automobiles isn't nearly as good as the flick, so I have no idea what Tickets might have been.  But I'm sure it wouldn't have been as good, even if you had Robert Downey Jr playing the lead (who it seemed like the part was written for).

Post by: Neumatic on January 03, 2015, 05:23:11 pm
Where did these come from?

You know, I'm torn... part of me wants to see more, but I also know they were excised for a reason (Ferris Bueller has two young siblings that we never see, for example, because they add nothing to the movie).  Again I bring up the script for Planes Trains and Automobiles, not only was it weaker, it made Del more insufferable.  One bit of dialogue that actually went in would have totally ruined the movie for me.  It was bad enough reading it on paper, hearing John Candy say it-- no, I couldn't accept that.  I feel like The Breakfast Club might be the same thing.
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Chiprocks1 on January 03, 2015, 05:58:47 pm
Dude, I've had the same thoughts and conversations within my own head about the pros and cons of the original cut of TBC and an extended 'Director's Cut' and it all comes down to just wanting to have both copies in my personal DVD library. There are a handful of movies that I loved as is and then ended up getting an extended cut. The one that comes to mind is T2. It's great to have both, but I still find myself just alternating between the two which is something I'd end up doing with TBC. I just want to have it even if I know that no amount of new content is ever going to displace the original. As for the Screencaps, I just did a search for 'Deleted Scenes' and instead of clicking on 'Web', I went with 'Images' to see if there were any Behind the Scenes stuff and saw the 3 Images. I originally saw the Anthony Michael Hall image from a video that I will post in just a second...........

Sixteen Candles had something like this too... I think I've heard of this happening with other movies too, I think it might just be because the TV cuts need more time, so they work off a less truncated version of the film. I'm really not sure.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on January 03, 2015, 06:57:23 pm
Yeah, I get the practice of broadcast TV doing this for pretty much every movie to fill in the needed air space which I've seen firsthand for years. But with it being bandied about that the only "cut" of TBC is what we already know it to be, getting this added content out of nowhere is a mystery.....for everyone.

The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition (http://www.wvnstv.com/story/28093978/from-universal-pictures-home-entertainment-the-breakfast-club-30th-anniversary-edition)



Depending on exactly how long the 12-Part doc is, this still seems to be very light in the extras department. But, I do like the idea of a Commentary Track with Hall and Nelson, but somewhat disappointed that it's only them. With that said, I would and will still end up buying this DVD just for the Resolution bump, which would be a huge step up. I mentioned it a few post back how soft the film looked on my original DVD pressing. So, the idea of seeing TBC at 6x's the resolution has me pumped. This is definitely a Must-Buy for me. As for the theatrical re-release, I highly doubt it will be offered here.

Post by: Chiprocks1 on February 12, 2015, 01:47:37 pm
Well that blows. Why the f*ck can't Universal get anything right with this movie? Why is it always treated as an afterthought. Since I skipped the most recent pressing of the DVD, I don't know what is or isn't new. But the fact that they are just porting stuff over tells me the studio doesn't give a f*ck. Trivia tracks on DVDs as a whole suck donkey balls. Well, the ones I've seen do. I'm guessing the Doc I watched a couple of months back on YouTube is going to be the same one huh? If that's the case, it doesn't clock in more than 20 minutes total. That's just a guess and not a factual number. But that's still weak in my book.
Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Neumatic on February 12, 2015, 02:15:24 pm
The only trivia track I remember liking was the one on Galaxy Quest b/c Mike and Denise Okuda wrote it, the whole thing was full of jokes and fake trivia about the fake show (including episode summaries), "info" on the ship, background on the characters (Tim Allen's character had a sitcom called "Hello Nighbor!" and released a polka album).  There was some actual trivia about the movie, I think, but it was few and far between.

Anyway, if you don't have TBC on DVD, get the Flashback edition from Target, 10 bucks new.  Or wait until the blu-ray gets cheap.  Or wait for the movie to pop back onto Netflix.

Title: Re: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Post by: Neumatic on February 12, 2015, 05:21:50 pm
When did the original pressing come out?

The problem with old flicks is that there isn't a lot of supplemental material, and since John Hughes never really did commentaries or anything when he was like (well, one on a Ferris Bueller DVD), so there's little they can actually put IN the discs.  They'd have to commission new material and that's expensive, and they probably don't get viewed as much as the regular movie by a wide margin.

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.

'The Goldbergs' Pays Homage To 'The Breakfast Club' In S4 Premiere

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWkzVPcBejw

I just watched The Goldberg's season premiere for Season 4 and as you know, it was a homage to the best things about The Breakfast Club. I have been wanting to check this series out since it first came out, but never had time before. I won't watch anymore episodes from here on out as I intend to start from the beginning. But yeah, I made this one exception for obvious reasons. This was a fun and great episode. Loved it.

I like the Godbergs but I'm not nuts about the homage episodes.  They did one of Ferris Bueller and it was just painful for me to watch, just recreating scenes without really commenting or mixing it up at all.  I like that Adam is into pop culture, but he abides by all the set rules, they don't mash anything up.  They do Star Wars in one episode, Transformers in another, but a kid like Adam would be mixing it up.

The Criterion Collection put out a special edition of The Breakfast Club.  Tons of special features, including 50 minutes of deleted scenes.

My copy just came in the mail.  Can't wait to explore all this.  I anticipate making TONS of GIFs.

I had no idea this was even happening. It's what I've been waiting for since the dawn of DVD first came out. I'm sooooooooooo getting this. Are there any other different versions like Target release one kind, Best Buy another, Amazon another and so on. Or is this just one version by Criterion and that's it?

I'm looking on eBay right now and they all seem to be packaged in a Clear Plastic Bag. Is this right? What's up with that? This official? I ask because I've never seen that kind of a DVD "Case". Let me know. Thanks

Nope.  Criterion doesn't do distributer editions, ever.  They do one high quality release that's universal across all retailers.  And they sure as sh*t don't release anything in clear plastic bags.

The case is clear, not blue, and there's no empty bit on the top for the logo.  It's very distinct.  It'll be wrapped and have that criterion sticker on the corner.  It's going to look like this.

there's a booklet in there and it's absolutely part of the special features.  And it just came out so I doubt there's many if any "used" editions out there yet.  And honestly, most people who collect Criterions never get rid of them.

So, I got the Criterion couple of weeks ago and watched the movie a few days ago....and now I'm slowly going through the Bonus stuff. Currently watching the on-set interviews. I'm actually going to spread the Bonus stuff out over a few days because I want to savor it. This is content I have been waiting years to get my hands on and what I've seen so far is tripping me out, especially the BTS stuff.

I watched half the deleted scenes and that's it thus far.  I want to savor it too, but I'm not in a Breakfast Club mood yet.

Blindspot - Patterson Joins The Breakfast Club (Episode Highlight)

I'm 3 weeks behind schedule on the series, but this was a nice surprised today. What was already a kick ass episode just reached a whole other level when Patterson walks in on TBC. Jaimie Alexander as Alison was f*cking awesome!!
