BFI Review – King Lear (1987)

28 February 2016 2:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Lear, 1987.

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard.

Starring Peter Sellars, Burgess Meredith, Molly Ringwald, Norman Mailer and Woody Allen.

Synopsis:

A collaged interpretation of Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Jean-Luc Godard’s King Lear is a memorable experience. If you’re looking for Shakespeare, this is definitely a unique interpretation of the Bards tragedy. Starring Molly Ringwald, Burgess Meredith and an uncredited Woody Allen in the final act, this is an unexpected combination of talents. My imagination runs wild as a fan of The Breakfast Club impulsively catches the latest brat-pack actor, to be met with Ringwald repeating lines and leading a white horse to the water. “Nothing. No thing.” King Lear: A Study. A picture shot in the back. It is possible that this picture was shot in the back by Godard himself, and left writhing around the floor of the studio gasping for a single breath of air. Alternatively, »

‘Pretty in Pink’ at 30: The Best and Worst Films of John Hughes

26 February 2016 2:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before movies like “Say Anything” and “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and TV shows like “Dawson’s Creek” and “My So Called Life,” John Hughes’ classic high school romance “Pretty in Pink” dared to depict teenage love with a poignancy and truthfulness that felt both natural and wildly sentimental. Released on February 28, 1986, it remains one of Hughes’ most beloved movies. On the 30th anniversary of “Pretty in Pink,” here’s a look back at John Hughes’ 10 finest films, plus five that didn’t quite make the grade.

The Best…

10) Uncle Buck (1989)

John Candy played the title role of a lovable oaf whose babysitting skills are put to the test in this lightweight yet undeniably funny family comedy. The fifth of eight Hughes films in which he appeared, Candy showed winning chemistry with 9-year old Macaulay Culkin in what remains a career highlight. Though a 1990 “Uncle Buck” sitcom starring Kevin Meaney »

Watch: Why 'Sixteen Candles' Is the Ultimate Teen Comedy

26 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Former Chicago ad man John Hughes parlayed several print and script assignments for the National Lampoon into a writer/director gig on this, the first of a veritable onslaught of teen angst comedies that gave the world The Brat Pack, a group of young actors who went on to careers of varied length after hitting it big in Hughes movies. This one was written for 15-year-old Molly Ringwald, whose headshot Hughes pulled out of a pile of submissions. It hung over his typewriter as he banged out the script.  »

The stories behind Molly Ringwald’s ‘Pretty in Pink’ costumes

26 February 2016 10:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The costumes were an absolutely essential part of Pretty in Pink. It’s right there in the title. And the costumes are what set apart Molly Ringwald’s Andie from the preppy “richie” kids at school, where she never quite fit in. “She was her own person,” as the film’s costume designer Marilyn Vance put it. Andie’s style was both cutting edge and retro at the time Pretty in Pink was released in 1986. This Sunday marks 30 years since the John Hughes-penned movie hit theaters (the film is now available on Digital HD including iTunes). Vance had previously put together a pink-centric ensemble for Ringwald, for The Breakfast Club (one of Vance’s several collaborations with Hughes). It was the Psychedelic Furs song “Pretty in Pink” that led Hughes to write this story about a pink-loving teenager from the wrong side of the tracks, and the color was »

Pretty in Pink Turns 30! Remember These Crazy '80s Styles?

26 February 2016 5:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Pretty in Pink celebrates its 30th anniversary this Sunday. Break out the shoulder pads to celebrate! The 1986 "Brat Pack" teen movie is about a girl "from the wrong side of the tracks" (Molly Ringwald) who ends up with a preppy guy named Blane (Andrew McCarthy), because of course an '80s romantic lead is named Blane. The cast is rounded out by Andie's boy Bff "Duckie" (Jon Cryer) and a perfectly smug rich guy named Steff (James Spader.) The cult favorite comes with so many throwback memories: a perfectly punk soundtrack with performances from bands like The Psychedelic Furs, a love triangle (Team Blane vs. Team Duckie), and oh, the fashion.

'Pretty in Pink': 15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the John Hughes Classic

26 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Thirty years have passed since the release of "Pretty in Pink" (on February 28, 1986), and yet we're still bewildered by the teen romance's climax.

Maybe we need to think of the John Hughes-scripted film as Gen X's own "Casablanca." The ending makes more sense if you think of Duckie (Jon Cryer) as Humphrey Bogart, letting the woman he loves (Molly Ringwald's Andie) go off with the dull-but-decent guy (Andrew McCarthy's Blane) because he's finally admitted to himself that he's a chivalrous romantic who values her happiness above his own. Yeah, it's a stretch, but it's just one of many interpretations to spin out of this Hughes classic.

In honor of the film turning the big three-0, here are 15 surprising facts about the best movie ever named after a Psychedelic Furs song.

1. Hughes wrote the role of Andie Walsh for Ringwald, but even though she'd starred in his »

30 Things You Might Not Know About Pretty in Pink, 30 Years Later

Pretty in Pink isn't just a good '80s movie. It isn't just a good teen movie. And it isn't just a good romantic movie. It's just a good movie, period. The John Hughes classic first hit theaters on Feb. 28, 1986, and it turns 30 years old this weekend. The film featured Molly Ringwald as Andie, a high school student whose style belies her working class roots. She's captured the eye of seemingly every guy in school - among them, preppy dreamboat Blane (Andrew McCarthy) and her little hipster buddy, Duckie (Jon Cryer). And the process of Ringwald's character trying to figure »

We're having a difficult time wrapping our heads around the fact that it's been 30 years since Andie (Molly Ringwald) and Duckie (John Cryer) defiantly walked arm in arm into the senior prom, punctuated by the now-classic tune "If You Leave," forever cementing Pretty in Pink as one of the classic films of the '80s (and yes, maybe of all time).  Artist Jeff Delgado created this magnificent artwork exclusively for Fandango capturing Andie and Duckie in...

John Hughes wanted Jennifer Beals, not Molly Ringwald, to star in ‘Pretty in Pink’

17 February 2016 2:53 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In an alternate universe somewhere, a homemade pink dress was the prom attire that stuck it to the snobby rich kids, worn not by Molly Ringwald — but by Jennifer Beals. And that’s almost what happened in our universe. On the latest episode of Alec Baldwin’s podcast Here’s The Thing, Ringwald revealed why she nearly lost her Pretty in Pink lead role to Beals, who was fresh off of the success of 1983’s Flashdance. Turns out John Hughes was pissed at his red-headed Breakfast Club star at the time Pretty in Pink production was about to begin, and he decided Beals could play Andie — a character Hughes had written specifically for Ringwald. Here’s the conversation between Ringwald and Baldwin about how she almost lost, then managed to keep, her role in Pretty in Pink — which celebrates its 30th anniversary later this month.

Jem and the Holograms movie review: rock ’n’ roll fantasy

20 January 2016 7:22 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Utterly implausible on every level, and ultimately rather insulting: a bit of glitter and lots of hugs are the sum total of its “girl power.” I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not seen the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, shoot. I really wanted to like this flick. Not that I have any investment in the 1980s cartoon it’s based on: I’ve never even seen it, and honestly, I don’t even remember it. But this is a movie about a bunch of young women — women who are very different from one another and interested in different sorts of things, and some of them are even not white! — being cool and having fun and forming a band and making music. Alas, Jem and the Holograms is utterly implausible on every level, »

'Pretty in Pink' to Return to Theaters for 30th Anniversary

14 January 2016 5:32 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The 1986 romantic comedy Pretty in Pink turns 30 this year. Those who weren't around to live through the days of big shoulder pads and the perfectly-captured teen love angst of mid-1980s era John Hughes films can catch this classic from his repertoire when it hits select theaters nationwide next month. Those that saw it the first time around can wax nostalgic about the wonders of Dippity-Do in maintaining budge-proof high coifs, perhaps think of one's own questionable teen love choices and revisit one of the "30 Greatest Rock & Roll Movie Moments. »
