These just have to be in the collection of any John Hughes or 80s movie fan. These films spoke for a whole generation of teenagers and were the forerunners of all teen movies. Real stories, real characters, fantastic music. Rediscover your youth - and if you are young now - see what all the fuss was about. These films still hold up well today, in particular The Breakfast Club, as the characters and problems presented in the film are as relevant today as they were then. Great value for three films.
This collection is brilliant - its contains 3 films and extra's and is very cheap,its brilliant value for money. Firstly the collection is well-put together - the three films are all John Hughes classics and fit perfect together. The extra's are also really good and gives new John Hughes film fans like me and old fans a real insight into John Hughes and his films. What i really love about this collection is the packaging - its well very packaged. The design is appropriate to the films,its quirky,colorful,thoughtful and there little messages making the packaging design like a yearbook which is a very good idea. I'm very impressed with the packaging as i am with the films. They are classic John Hughes film of the 80's teen genre/"brat-pack" films. They all contain good stories,cast and have mix of fun and all kinds of emotions. Weird science is crazy but really sweet and funny. Sixteen candles is very sweet and the character of Sam is very believable and easy to relate to. The end is lovely and the geeks and the Chinese dude are great. Finally the breakfast club - my fave John Hughes film. Great story and characters. The characters are easy to relate to and their emotions are captured brilliantly. Its a simple film yet really delivers all types of emotions and has a great message. Teenagers are presented well in the film and real heart is put into it. The actor's are good especially Judd Nelson who plays John Bender - he acts very well and pulls out a good performance. John Bender is my fave character - he's a bit messed up and plays up a lot but he's a fun character and provides a lot of the laughs. Overall a brilliant collection - its a well packaged and thought out collection. For new fans of John Hughes films like me its a good collection to get into his classic films and at a good price too.
I grew up watching these films and had a similar box-set of my own, but have recently bought this one for my 18 year-old niece, who was constantly borrowing mine! I don't think these films date at all - they are classic 80's films and anyone who was a teenager in that era will know and love them. The younger generation seem to love them too!
