For this week’s ponderings:
What’s your favorite ’80s teen/Brat Pack movie?
Pretty In Pink – Duckie, BLAINE, and Andie strut their stuff in this Hughes classic
Some Kind of Wonderful – Your tomboyish drum playing best friend? Or the hottest gal in school? Decisions, decisions.
St. Elmo’s Fire – Defining brat pack flick about Georgetown grads and dealing with becoming adults.
The Outsiders – This cast cannot be denied! Arguably the movie that started them all, with Greasers and Socs rumbling to a cool soundtrack
Sixteen Candles – “Dong, where is my automobile?” “Au-to-mo-bi-le?” ‘Nuff said.
War Games – There is something hilariously apropos about an artificial inteligence war machine discovering the merits of peace through playing tic tac toe.
Weird Science – If you can’t get a date, MAKE ONE!
The Breakfast Club – The quintessential Brat Pack movie.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Ahh, Matthew Broderick. How you’ve grown. Err…wait, not really.
One Crazy Summer – Recently saw this on cable–did you know Jeremy Piven is in this one? Really cool boat race.
