“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

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...
"Yes, I'm definitely going to be a part of that. We're going to have a couple of very funny bits with the Kevin Smith characters that I've portrayed. I've portrayed a number of them at this point, so I think we're going to bring a variety of them back."

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.
Transformers Spinoff ‘Bumblebee’ to Open Against ‘Aquaman’
The company is now seeking to block the sales of Mattel’s Bumblebee toy, which is part of the DC Super Hero Girls line of action figures. Hasbro is also concerned about a Bumblebee Lego set.

Transformers: Titans Return will unite geeky favourites Michael Dorn, Nolan North, Jason David Frank and Peter Cullen...
The latest Transformers movie may have received a critical drubbing, but that isn't going to stop Machinima's online-only animated output.
Transformers: Titans Return will be the next short series from Machinima. It will follow on from Combiner Wars, which has apparently garnered over 125 million views worldwide since its debut last year.
An impressive, geek-friendly cast has been assembled for the series. The original Optimus Prime voice actor, Peter Cullen, is joining the show, as is Judd Nelson, who voiced Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime in the 1986 animated movie.
Alongside these veteran Autobot voice boxes, fans will also get to hear Michael Dorn as Fortress Maximus, Wil Wheaton as Perceptor, Nolan North as Metroplex and Jason David Frank as Emissary. Exciting times!

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.

When Andy Cohen asked Anthony Michael Hall on Watch What Happens Live this week which Brat Pack member was making the most of their fame “back in the day,” Hall didn’t hesitate for long.
“I’ll go with Judd Nelson,” he said.
That wasn’t all Hall had to say about his former castmates during Cohen’s “Plead the Fifth” segment, in which stars can choose
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
