Kenny Ortega on 'High School Musical' and His Jump to Netflix:
Kenny Ortega’s first taste of feature directing came thanks to John Hughes. Ortega had been working as an in-demand choreographer, stage and music video director for bands like The Tubes and The Pointer Sisters, when the writer-director behind The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles offered him his entry into film directing.

“I was the second unit director for the Ferris Bueller's Day Off parade sequence,” says Ortega of the musical number in the 80s classic that sees Matthew Broderick commandeer a parade float musical melody of Wayne Newton’s “Danke Shoen” and Isley Brothers' “Twist &...

Anthony Michael Hall is Starring in Blumhouse Film “Halloween Kills”

Kevin Burwick from MovieWeb has been pretty vocal lately about a lot of upcoming movies, but this is one that seems to split some fans’ opinions since Halloween Kills is going to be making use of old characters and bringing in Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, a character that a lot of fans likely remember throughout the history of the Halloween movies. Hall is of course known as one of the infamous Brat Pack from back in the day when he was still joining the cast for movies such as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and of course, Weird

Anthony Michael Hall Is Tommy Doyle in Halloween Kills
Anthony Michael Hall has joined the cast of Blumhouse's Halloween Kills. The actor will be taking on the part of Tommy Doyle, one of the children Laurie Strode babysat in John Carpenter's iconic original movie. This won't be the first time that the Doyle character has come back to the Halloween franchise. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers saw a Doyle cameo played by Danny Ray. And in 1995's Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Paul Rudd played the character and teamed up with Dr. Loomis to take down Michael Myers once and for all.

It isn't clear how big of a part Anthony Michael Hall will have in Halloween Kills. Obviously, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have taken the Halloween franchise and stuck to the original movie, ditching the long list of sequels in the process. In the first installment, Tommy Doyle was an eight-year

Anthony Michael Hall Joins Halloween Kills As Tommy Doyle

Diehard Halloween fans have been hoping that the character of Tommy Doyle would be returning for one or both of the franchise’s upcoming sequels and now, it’s official. Prominent ’80s star Anthony Michael Hall will be portraying a grown-up version of one of the kids that Laurie Strode babysat on that unfortunate holiday when Michael Myers first escaped custody in the upcoming follow-up Halloween Ends.

The 51-year-old actor rose to stardom as a teenager, popping up in coming-of-age classics like Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Weird Science. To avoid being typecast as a geek, he began to branch out in his adolescence by accepting parts in Out of Bounds, Johnny Be Good, Edward Scissorhands and Six Degrees of Separation. Now, he’s taking the plunge into horror by joining one of the genre’s biggest franchises.

Tommy Doyle was first played by Brian Andrews way back in the day.

‘Halloween Kills’: Anthony Michael Hall Joins Horror Sequel (Exclusive)

Frightfest 2019: ‘The Legend of the Stardust Brothers’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Shingo Kubota, Kan Takagi, Kyoko Togawa, Kiyohiko Ozaki | Written and Directed by Macoto Tezuka

The Legend of the Stardust Brothers was made all the way back in 1985. I was only two years old; Back to the Future, The Goonies, Weird Science and The Breakfast Club were enchanting cinema goers by the millions; New Coke was introduced in the USA to very little fanfare and our friends over in Japan released this movie, a movie that I, until very recently, hadn’t heard anything about. It seems I’m not alone though, as the film flopped in its native Japan and even remains unknown to the majority of folks to this day. Strange. Needless to say, I was excited to check it out once I read the premise and heard the riveting backstory behind it.

The backstory to the film, which I found quite intriguing, would see the son of

Mbti® John Hughes Characters

Before the dark teen drama Riverdale or the mystery Pretty Little Liars or high school movies like Superbad and Mean Girls, John Hughes was the one telling adolescent stories. His 1980s films are famous for actually depicting what it's like to be young and confused. Whether it's a girl whose birthday goes forgotten in Sixteen Candles or very different classmates stuck in Saturday detention in The Breakfast Club, his storytelling lives on.

While most of John Hughes' beloved movies are about teens, there are a few that are about families, like Home AloneUncle Buck, and Mr. Mom. One thing is for sure: his characters stand out from the pack and embrace individuality, quirks, and charm. Here are the Myers-Briggs® Personality Types of some of the characters from John Hughes movies.

Cast Set For James Wan and Shawn Levy's Netflix Horror Movie There's Someone In Your House

James Wan (The Conjuring) and Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) have teamed up to produce a new horror movie for Netflix called There’s Someone Inside Your House and the cast for that film has been set. The tone of the film is also said to be similar to Stranger Things, and it’s described as a "1980s and ’90s slasher movie meets a John Hughes coming-of-age tale like The Breakfast Club."

The film is an adaptation of the book by Stephanie Perkins, and the story “sees the graduating class at Osborne High being targeted by a masked assailant intent on exposing the darkest secret of each victim. Only a group of misfit outsiders can stop the killings — before their own secrets are revealed to the world.”

The movie also has an ensemble cast that includes Sydney Park (Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists) in the lead role. She will play Makani,

Fathom Events Hosting Friends 25th Anniversary Screenings of Fan Favorite Episodes

I grew up watching Friends, and when I watch now I realize it probably wasn’t super appropriate for a ten year old, but neither was Saturday Night Live, Terminator 2, or The Breakfast Club, but I am the youngest sibling, so I did want I wanted! Hahahaha! But I digress. The extremely well-loved series has been a staple for fans on Netflix and in syndication in the years since it’s ended, but now fans can see some of the best episodes of the series thanks to Fathom Events, which has set up a special set of screenings to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the airing of the series.

Blinded by The Light Review: The Feel-Good Movie of The Summer

Blinded by The Light Review: The Feel-Good Movie of The Summer
Blinded by the Light is a soul-stirring journey of self expression. Set to a rocking soundtrack of Bruce Springsteen's seventies and eighties working-class anthems. A British teen of Pakistani descent struggles against the confines of his culture and racial persecution in an economically depressed town. Equal parts fantasy musical, somber drama, and uplifting romance, director Gurinder Chadha uses creative filmmaking to explore the yearnings of the human heart. Blinded by the Light is sublimely poetic in its delivery. A terrific finale had me on the verge of tears.

Blinded by the Light takes place in 1987 Luton, England. The shy and introspective Javed (Viveik Kalra) chafes under the rules of his oppressive father (Kulvinder Ghir); who doesn't believe Pakistanis can ever be treated equally in Britain. He wants his son to study hard and find a respectable career. Javed hides his poetry from his parents. His only freedom is writing

10 Pre-Breakfast Club Teen Movies That Are Still Worth Watching

Out of the hundreds of movies that are released each year, there is occasionally a film that is so special that it transcends its time and even its genre. The Breakfast Club, the seminal teen movie by filmmaking legend John Hughes, is one of those films. This movie, about a disparate group of high schoolers who bond over one seemingly never-ending Saturday detention, is a classic whose appeal will never fade, and  has come to define the teen movie genre.

But The Breakfast Club's iconic status doesn't mean that there weren't teen movies that came before it that are still more than worth the watch. After all, The Breakfast Club was released in 1985, decades after the teen movie genre was created and really became a niche in itself. So which pre-Breakfast Club teen movies are still some can't-miss classics?

Trailer: Jason Mewes Makes His Directorial Debut With ‘Madness In The Method’

PR

Here’s one of our most anticipated movies of the summer; Jason Mewes‘ directorial debut Madness In The Method, a movie we’ve been following the progress of for a little while now. Mewes also leads the cast of the upcoming comedy, a film which apparently delivers murder, madness and meta-moviemaking. Cannot wait.

Here’s the official synopsis:

The only way to survive in Hollywood is to toughen up, or embrace insanity! At least that’s the advice Kevin Smith passes on to his best friend Jason Mewes, problem is, Smith was joking about the latter…

No longer content being known only as Jay from Jay and Silent Bob, Jason takes matters into his own hands and hatches a plan to change people’s perception of him in the movie business. Did the plan involve a killing spree, a wide scale police investigation and international press scrutiny? Probably not,

Blu-ray Review – Weird Science (1985)

Weird Science, 1985.

Directed by John Hughes.

Starring Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Kelly LeBrock, Bill Paxton, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Rusler, Michael Berryman, Vernon Wells, and Judie Aronson.

Synopsis:

A pair of high school nerds create a ‘perfect’ woman using their computer but chaos ensues as she tries to teach them the error of their ways.

So how do you go about selling Weird Science – a movie so 1980s it should come with a free tin of hairspray and a pair of florescent socks – to a new audience in 2019? Quite a tough sell considering the two essential plot details involve a computer and a pair of teenage nerds who just want to be liked, and in 2019 audiences are savvier about computers and being a nerd is seen as a badge of honour and not the negative insult it was back then.

But the current fetishism of the 1980s in pop

Win Weird Science Blu-ray Steelbook

To celebrate the release of Weird Science – out on DVD and Blu-ray 22nd July – we have a limited edition Blu-ray SteelBook up for grabs.

If you can’t get a date… make one! After proving himself the king of heartfelt teen flicks with Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, writer-director John Hughes infused the genre with a hefty dose of whacked-out sci-fi comedy in Weird Science, a film where every teenage boy’s wildest fantasies come to life.

Perennially picked-on high school nerds Gary and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) are sick of their status at the bottom of the social food chain. Using Wyatt’s computer, the two hatch a plan to create their dream woman – and following a massive power surge, that woman unexpectedly appears in the form of Lisa (Kelly LeBrock). Gorgeous, intelligent, and blessed with limitless magic powers, Lisa makes the boys’ dreams come true… but what about

Fantasia 2019: ‘Porno’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Evan Daves, Jillian Mueller, Katelyn Pearce, Peter Reznikoff, Larry Saperstein, Glenn Stott, Robbie Tann | Written by Matt Black, Laurence Vannicelli | Directed by Keola Racela

Two of my all-time favourite horror films are Michele Soavi’s Stagefright (1987), which sees a group of stage actors locked in the theater for a rehearsal of their upcoming musical production with a psychopathic killer; and Mark Herrier’s Popcorn (1991), which sees a murderer kill the attendees of a movie marathon in an old abandoned cinema. Why am I telling you this? Well Keola Racela’s Porno continues the same thematic tradition found in those films and other movies such as Fade to Black, Anguish and Demons, whilst also harkening back to that similar period in film history, setting this particular story in small-town America circa 1992…

Taking place in a local ultra-Christian movie theater, currently showing 90s “classics” like Encino Man and A League of Their Own,
