The Breakfast Club

“What happens when you put five strangers in Saturday detention? Badass posturing, gleeful misbehavior, and a potent dose of angst. With this exuberant film, writer-director John Hughes established himself as the bard of American youth, vividly and empathetically capturing how teenagers hang out, act up, and goof off. ‘The Breakfast Club’ brings together an assortment of adolescent archetypes — the uptight prom queen (Molly Ringwald), the stoic jock (Emilio Estevez), the foul-mouthed rebel (Judd Nelson), the virginal bookworm (Anthony Michael Hall

Looking back at St. Elmo's Fire (1985)

by Eric Blume

Director Joel Schumacher’s St. Elmo’s Fire captures 1985 perfectly: the word “yuppie” had just come into vogue, and this film follows seven Georgetown students finding themselves lost after graduation. They’re all white, attractive, fairly affluent, and awfully boring, and nothing much happens in the movie. So why is it so damn watchable?

St. Elmo’s Fire is a curio from this era, because while it wasn’t a huge box office success, it’s an instantly-recognizable title after 22 years. This of course is due to the film’s actors: Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Emilio Estevez, Mare Winningham, Judd Nelson, and Andrew McCarthy. Schumacher did manage lightning-in-a-bottle with that casting, and while very little about the film is objectively good, watching these actors near the start of their careers provides a kicky joy...

Hasbro Files Suit Against DC Comics Over ‘Bumblebee’ Trademark

Hasbro Files Suit Against DC Comics Over ‘Bumblebee’ Trademark
Two superhero franchises are about to square off in federal court over the right to market “Bumblebee” toys.

Hasbro, owner of the Transformers brand, filed a lawsuit on Monday accusing Warner Bros. and DC Comics of trademark infringement. The suit claims that the DC “Bumblebee” — a teenage girl with the ability to shrink — could easily be confused with the Autobot “Bumblebee.”

Hasbro has a lot riding on the “Bumblebee” character, set to star in the first Transformers spinoff, which is due in theaters at Christmas 2018.

Wil Wheaton, Judd Nelson, MatPat, Tay Zonday Among Voices In Machinima’s Next ‘Transformers’ Show

Last year, digital media company Machinima and toy maker Hasbro teamed up for Transformers: Combiner Wars, which delivered big numbers on Go90. Now, the second part of what those companies are billing as the “Prime Wars trilogy” is on its way, and it features some prime additions to its voice cast. An animated series called Titans Return is set to arrive on Go90 in November, and its voice cast will feature a combination of 80s and 90s TV notables, YouTube stars, and other performers.

As per usual, Titans Return will feature tussles between the benevolent Autobots and the wretched Decepticons, who have repeatedly done battle since first locking horns as part of a 1984 toy line. Despite their longevity, the Transformers remain popular. According to Machinima, the first third of Prime Wars has received 125 million views.

‘WWE #5′ Review (Boom Studios)

Written by Dennis Hopeless, Ross Thibodeaux | Art by Serg Acuna, Rob Guillory | Published by Boom Studios

At first glance, the idea of a WWE comic seems pretty absurd. It is not super surprising it exists as we live in a world where any licensed property is bound to have some version of a comic, but the more you look at this pairing the more it ends up making sense. Professional wrestling and comics have a lot in common with their over the top characters, larger than life storylines, and their ability to be self-aware in a humorous manner. Dennis Hopeless is able to use that common ground and make this comic much better than it has any business being.

In this issue, we get a heavy dose of the Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose. Even if you never watched an episode of WWE before you’ll get a solid understanding of
