a review over "Don't You Forget About Me''
3 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Critics attack this movie like a dog attacks a piece of steak. But, i'm here to say that this movie was rather good. A documentary of Jon Hughes that was long over due, made by some amateurs. Amateurs. that doesn't mean the movie is going to be grade A material. But it was put together nicely, clips, pictures, interviews. so most the interviews didn't have the biggest actors, but they weren't gonna waste there time searching for interviews from actors when the movie is about JON HUGHES. It is also about a few kids trying to get an interview, thats the plot, and the movie also had a good number of actor and director interviews, who talk about Jon Hughes, his feelings, his actions, friends, family. It reaches the teen crowd to urge them to watch his movies, and compare them to these new teen movies, to see what is better. Kutos to these kids who tried to get an interview, the movie wasn't perfect, but it wasn't boring. it keeps minds interested, and hopeful.
