|I am aware this isn't the official poster, but you might have noticed that I don't|
really care about staying official, this way being a bit different from all the
other review sites and blogs.
I was just about to celebrate my 16th birthday when I saw an episode of Scrubs where J.D. says "It was just like that scene from Sixteen Candles.", and I went, what is that? So I got the movie and I decided to see it on my birthday. And I loved it! I already knew the lead actors from other movies of mine, but mostly I loved the story.
My favorite John Hughes and Molly Ringwald co-production movies all have this affect on me. Starting from Pretty in Pink all the way to The Breakfast Club. They are all down to earth and yet share a magic that brings the stories above all others.
Empire Records, even though that was made in the 90's.
Unfortunately I can say that this movies isn't for everyone. I can think of several people, even among my friends, who's humor isn't set for these kinds of movies. What can I say? We are a different generation. It is no wonder they keep remaking classics: they are trying to appeal to the kids of the 21st century! But there is a magic to the originals that cannot be compared to anything. I am sure that none of you will watch this movie just because I told you so, but trust me if I tell you that you will have a hard time finding something wrong with this movie! It is no wonder that such great shows like One Tree Hill made a whole episode just in memory of the wonderful John Hughes! He literally touched the hearts of every American, and then on everyone one the planet who had the fortune of seeing one of his movies.
Anyway, that is all I wanted to say, now I'm going to take a bit of time off, it is my birthday tomorrow and I have one more week of exams and afterwards it is full on Comics Summer! Don't miss out!
You all take care now! and, well
