The Breakfast Club (1985)
In The Simplest Terms: The Best
This is without a doubt the best high school movie of all time and one of the best of 80s. John Hughes presents high school stereotypes, takes of their masks and expands them to the point of opening everyone's eyes. Real performances from real teenagers and emotions run wild over the course of Saturday detention. It's a shame this hasn't officially been turned into a stage play. The music is fantastic. This deserves to be watched by anyone who is, was, or ever will be a teenager. It's a time capsule that takes us right into the 1985 with the perms and fashions of a different universe. I feel like not enough credit is given to the wonderful Paul Gleason as principal Richard Vernon. He's seriously good, you guys.
Movie 43 (2013)
Let's Not and Say We Did...
This is one of those films that makes me wish IMDb made it possible to have a zero stars option. The only other film I've ever seen that has made me this angry is God's Not Dead. I think God was playing a practical joke on everyone in America with a brain when he allowed so many solid actors to appear in this movie. Do I really even need to list reasons why it's bad? Just don't watch it for corn's sake; that is, unless you're an idiot who doesn't want to grow at all. Okay so apparently this can't be posted unless it has ten lines of text so I'm just going to run out the clock here. Bear with me. This movie really wasn't worth ten lines of text let alone the effort I'm putting in to BS through this site's rules. Alright I've got enough now. Goodbye everyone and go to church if you know what's good for you.
Newhart: I Married Dick (1988)
That Quack In Chicago
Newhart has just begun its penultimate season and while things have always been on an elevated level of crazy and surreal, this season is when the show starts to spring into extreme realms of wackiness. Dick and Joanna go to marriage therapy along with Michael and Stephanie and a redneck couple. Michael and Stephanie are under the assumed names of Chuck and Dawn, as is typical for their fragile egos. Highlights of the episode include the redneck couple, Michael and Stephanie's big ear problems, and a cameo by Jack Riley from The Bob Newhart Show. Dick seems to recognize him from somewhere. Obviously the twist ending hasn't been written yet, but it's nice to think of Dick's recognition of Riley as a hint towards the fact that he was dreaming.
Murder, She Wrote: Magnum on Ice (1986)
A Few Missed Opportunities
A Jessica Fletcher/Magnum crossover! It's pretty exciting. This is actually the second half of a two parter, the first half airing on Magnum. The episode is great as they always are, but there are some huge missed opportunities. They could have struck up some sort of subtexty romance between Hillerman and Lansbury, since their characters are so much alike. Not to mention they're in Hawaii and Jessica doesn't wear one single Hawaiian costume. It's obvious this is more Magnum than Murder She Wrote. Jessica's character acts a bit off. Jessica Walters (aka Lucille Bluth) makes her second guest appearance since she was murdered in season one. The greatest injustice is that the legendary Dorothy Loudon is given such a boring character to play. Dorothy was the queen of overacting and in this she's too subtle. On a side note, Angela left her Tony Award winning run in Sweeney Todd to appear in Murder She Wrote. Her replacement? Dorothy Loudon. John McMartin is another Sondheim alumnus who appears in the episode. The Hawaiian music is something straight out of Spongebob Squarepants. I would have liked to see an episode where Magnum comes to Cabot Cove. Just think of the possibilities! This is an adequate episode, if not just for the novelty of seeing JB with the Magnum gang.
