Some Movies are Meant to be Classics

>> Thursday, July 17, 2008

My cousin watches the girls for us once a week when we have our small group gatherings at church. Not long ago when I was emptying out the DVD cabinet in search of movies to see she saw that I had “The Breakfast Club”, which she had heard about but never seen.

“How can you have not seen ‘The Breakfast Club’?”, I asked, ”It’s a classic.” Of course I was completely forgetting her age. Duh. So I lent it to her- along with “Weird Science” and “Sixteen Candles”. I only regret that I don’t own “Pretty in Pink”- my absolute favorite of the bunch. C’mon- the misfit from the wrong side of the tracks gets the rich preppy guy; who doesn’t love that?

Doug also has an affinity for classic 80’s movies. The other night we watched WarGames. You remember- (cue computer voice) “Would you like to play a game?” Before every home had a computer Matthew Broderick was hacked into the government’s system and pretending to be Russia and bomb the US.

Since Doug just saw WarGames I’m hesitant to tell him that he could see it in the theater again- a one night only 25th anniversary showing- July 24. But I feel I should because there will be a sneak peek of the sequel- WarGames: The Dead Code.

Oh, yeah, he’d go to that. One problem… his “BFF” (who happens to be another computer geek and probably saw the original with him) will be on vacation…

Pretty in Pink is one of my all time favorites, too. But, I also LOVE Some Kind of Wonderful. I might like it a tad better than Pretty in Pink, but they're pretty close. The soundracks for both are great, too. Man, am I showing my age!

I love War Games. I hadn't heard there's going to be a sequel. It will be interesting to see that.

Another favorite movie is Short Circuit - "No disassemble."

"Ooh. Sexy girlfriend!" Who wouldn't love Long Duk Dong?

Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast club. Two of the all-time greats.

What about Revenge of the Nerds? We used to watch this all the time as a family, which now I find rather disturbing as I think about some of the scenes in it... :)

"Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!"
