Required Reading: Lgbt Parents on Film and Great Christian Movies

26 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Why don’t we see Lgbt parents portrayed in children’s films?” — Joanna Benecke at The Guardian asks a question that would make Kevin Swanson spit out his morning waffles. She offers some of the few current examples, and uses the headline rhetorically (since the answer is fairly obvious) to a clear-headed effect. After all, if Disney is going to draw heat without even trying, why not try? “Top 10 Christian-themed Movies” — Scott Nye at Movie Mezzanine offers a list of great movies along with insight into their explorations of Jesus and his teachings. It’s a powerful grouping, and I’ll volunteer to add Gravity as #11 (probably to Nye’s chagrin) as something that uses spectacle to achieve impact instead of trenchant character exploration. “It isn’t just The Breakfast Club: everything »

The high schoolers sentenced to confinement by assistant principal Richard "Dick" Vernon (the ideally oily Paul Gleason) started out as strangers, separated by the social boundaries that divide all student bodies in learning institutes across our nation (and around the world). By the end of the day, the impossible had occurred.

Help Us Cast the Inevitable 'Breakfast Club' Remake

25 March 2014 | | See recent news »

  In honor of the fact that the events featured in The Breakfast Club took place 30 years ago today (thanks to Badass Digest for the reminder), we're revisiting this piece from last year in which we recast the movie with current stars in the event of its inevitable remake. At some point those of us who grew up in the 1980s will have to come to terms with the fact that Hollywood will eventually remake all of our favorite movies from that era. It's just inevitable, especially as that generation continues to grow into pivotal roles throughout the entertainment industry. It's probably why we've seen an influx in coming-of-age movies that harken back to films like Stand by Me or E.T., in the case of J.J. Abrams' Super 8. The people who grew up with those...

'The Breakfast Club' Met 30 Years Ago Today

24 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

John Hughes's teen angst classic "The Breakfast Club" may have been released in 1985, but it's today, March 24, that marks the 30th anniversary of the date the group first met, during Saturday detention in 1984 at Shermer High.

The fivesome at the heart of the film -- a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal -- were thrown together for an afternoon that starts off hostile and winds up being seriously therapeutic, as they slowly learn to understand each other and realize that those stereotypes don't really define them. Plus, there's dancing in the library.

"The Breakfast Club" is easily one of the most beloved films of the '80s, with its cast -- Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, and Judd Nelson -- and its soundtrack -- featuring the Simple Minds anthem "Don't You (Forget About Me)" -- still standing as iconic symbols of the decade. »

Directed by: Neil Burger

Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet

Running Time: 2 hrs 20 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: March 21, 2014

Plot: In a post-war future where people are divided by their personalities, one young woman named Bearice (Woodley) strives to break down the walls that confine and divide everyone.

Who’S It For? Those whose attendance isn’t guaranteed by familiarity with the books should tread carefully. If curiosity still drives one to see this sooner than later, I’d recommend the cheapest matinee with the largest screen. IMAX patronage for this film is completely unnecessary.


Keeping in the spirit of John Hughes, Divergent is a high school story set in the land of Chicago, albeit 100 years in the future and after a war that has apparently caused a lot of problems outside of the city’s walls. While this tale involves adults, it features an »

Exclusive Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1 Interview with Lloyd Kaufman

This week, Anchor Bay Films is unleashing Lloyd Kaufman’s Tromasterpiece, Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1, to Blu-ray and DVD. To mark the occasion, Daily Dead recently chatted with Uncle Lloydie about his latest directorial effort, his approach to controversial material, and what kind of madness Troma fans can expect from Volume 2:

Thanks so much for taking time to speak with me today, Lloyd. Being a big Troma fan, I thought Return to Nuke ‘Em High (Volume 1) might be my favorite sequel to come out of Tromaville. With it being a few years since you were in the director’s chair, why did you decide to return with the Nuke ‘Em High franchise?

Lloyd Kaufman: Oh, thank you! You know, it takes me a long time to develop a script that I think the fans will like so it can be years on a project until we »

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2014

1 March 2014 9:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!
