Donnie Darko

Many weird-world genre bending millennial epics have already dated badly, but not Richard Kelly’s sci-fi / horror / satirical mind-trip about a guy given a glimpse of time travel in another dimension. The wit hasn’t faded and the menace hasn’t cooled, and the cast seems hipper than ever: Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mary McDonnell, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wyle, Drew Barrymore, Katharine Ross. Two versions, two formats, no waiting.

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

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

11 Fun Facts about U2, Duran Duran and Tears for Fears from 'Mad World'

  • Hitfix
It doesn’t seem possible that it was around 30 years ago that A Flock of Seagulls ran so far away or Modern English melted with us, but it was. The story behind those acts, their biggest hits, and dozens of other New Wave acts are captured in all their ‘80s bad hairdo-ed, brightly colored-glory in “Mad World: An Oral History of New Wave Artists And Songs That Defined The 1980s.” Written by Lori Majewski and Jonathan Bernstein, with a forward by Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes and an afterward by Moby, the book examines the New Wave era through the filter of 36 songs associated with the time, such as Gary Numan’s “Cars,” Duran Duran’s “Girls On Film” and The Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now.” Each chapter deals with one act and, while not limited to the group’s biggest hit, explores the story behind that tune and the

Top of the Pops at 50: should the BBC bring it back?

The BBC's once defining music show celebrates its 50th birthday on New Year's Day. Isn't it time for a long-overdue return?

'Dad! Dad! Top of the Pops! It's about to start now!" The child is my daughter Dora, who, in the three years that BBC4 has been repeating 35-year-old episodes of Top of the Pops, knows it's the one immovable fixture in my viewing week.

As it happens, these reruns are some of the earliest Top of the Pops I remember watching. Pictures of Abba, Showaddywaddy and Elo would flash before us. Then, as now, the charts were a pop share index – a Rock Exchange, if you like – charting the differing fortunes of bands in the affections of the nation. It was all the news we needed. But, of course, the future is never quite as you expected it to be. I always thought that, just as my parents did with me,

10. Blackboard Jungle

Billed as "a brass-knuckle punch in its startling revelation of teenage savages" and based on the book of the same name by Evan Hunter – aka crime writer Ed McBain – who drew on his own experiences as a teacher in the Bronx – Blackboard Jungle ushered in the age of the teenage delinquent. In London, Brooks's film attracted crowds of Teddy Boys, who slashed cinema seats, danced in the aisles and actually started a riot.

The reason for such shocking behaviour wasn't so much the film's content, which today garners a more sober 12 rating, but because of the use of
