On our way home, I was listening to my mp3s and one of my favorite song from one of my favorite movie played: Don’t You Forget About Me performed by the Simple Minds. The song is so cool as well as the movie. I’m still having goosebumps whenever I hear the song. It still sounds fresh even though it was released 27 years ago. This is one of the anthem of the 80’s and became immortal.
The movie The Breakfast Club is a teen movie in the 80’s. It is a John Hughes film which stars Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. The movie’s story happened within one day when the lead characters met the serve their detention that started on Saturday morning (7am) and stayed for 8 hours.
The story evolved in how they dealt with each other. Although they’re not totally stranger from each other, but they have their own peers; Andrew (Emilio Estevez) is a school athlete, Allison (Ally Sheedy) is a basket case, Claire (Molly Ringwald) is a pricess, John (Judd Nelson) is a criminal, and Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) is a brain. You can imagine how totally different personalities will mix inside detention within 8 hours.
This movie is full of entertainment and moral values. This makes you look back and reminisce how good are teen movies in the 80’s compare to teen movies of today where you can hear nothing but f*ck and sh*t and see nothing but naked teen agers.
I will never forget the song and the movie. They are both classic and marvelous.
