WEIRD SCIENCE
1985, Universal, 94 min, USA, Dir: John Hughes

Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith play nerds who feed a centerfold into a computer and generate their own real-life fantasy woman in the form of Kelly Le Brock. As she teaches the boys how to be men, they deal with a number of comic complications and supporting characters, including a hilarious Bill Paxton.


THE BREAKFAST CLUB
1985, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: John Hughes

John Hughes’ 1980s string of teenage comedy-dramas reached its apex with this study of five misfit kids (Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall) who learn to open up as they undergo a daylong Saturday detention. The memorable soundtrack includes Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me).”
