Five Brat Pack movies you’d do well to avoid….

MANNEQUIN
It’s the old story- boy meets shop dummy, boy falls in love with shop dummy, shop dummy turns out to be re-incarnated ancient Egyptian princess- but wrapped up with screaming gay stereotypes and some of the lamest gags in Christendom.

ROAD HOUSE
Possibly the most unintentionally hilarious and homo-erotic action movie ever made, Patrick Swayze stars in this monstrously dated hymn to country music and big hair, unwisely trying to do an Eastwood as enigmatic nightclub bouncer Dalton.

SOUL MAN
Another “high-concept” Brat Pack comedy, this laugh-free wasteland stars C. Thomas Howell as a teen who overdoses on tanning pills, turns black and- hey presto!- takes advantage of an all-black college scholarship. Even more reprehensible than it sounds.

OXFORD BLUES
Rob Lowe grins and mugs his way through every Brit movie cliché in the book, as a gormless Las Vegas car park attendant who, after to a spot of hacking, gets a place at Oxford University and shows those stiff-upper-lipped Limeys some American know-how.

RED DAWN
For anyone who’s ever wanted to see Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen take on the entire Russian Army, John Milius’ staggeringly paranoid war flick is a cinematic car-crash that sees the vodka-swilling commies mount a mainland U.S. invasion for no readily apparent reason.

Saxon Bullock - Articles - Don't You Forget About Me...

The story of five schoolkids (tagged by their archetypes in the opening narration as “a brain, an athlete, a princess, a basket case and a criminal”) connecting with each other while trapped in a Saturday detention, THE BREAKFAST CLUB was a deeply unappealing prospect to most studios. There were pages and pages of dialogue, only one location and none of the usual standards of teen cinema. One executive looked at Hughes’ script and said “Kids won’t sit through it! There’s no action, no party, no nudity!”, but Hughes stuck to his guns, and unintentionally kicked off the next phase of the Brat Pack’s life in the process.

THE BRAT PACK: 80'S ICONS

THE BRAT PACK: 80'S ICONS | 80's Highschool & Collegemovies | Scoop.it
Why did this new trend in movies begin during the eighties? Does it relate to the fact that this was the decade of greed, inflation, and conservative politics under Reagan and Thatcher? Or does it relate more to the new technology of the era – CDs hit the market, MTV was born, and the average household started getting cable TV and VCRs. Pop culture could (and would) spread like never before. Censorship also rose to new heights, but at the opposite end Colombia University – the last all-male Ivy League school – began to admit women in 1983. Did all of this lead to the appeal of John Hughes movies set in the suburbs of Chicago, with mostly white upper-middle class kids, and the feelgood nature of films where true love triumphs as in Dirty Dancing and About Last Night? It's a subject still debated in internet chat rooms and blogs across the world.

John Hughes (filmmaker)

John Hughes (filmmaker) | 80's Highschool & Collegemovies | Scoop.it
Trademark characteristics in Hughes's movies

A majority of Hughes' films are set in the North Shore suburbs of the Chicago metropolitan area. In certain films, the setting is specifically identified as the fictional Shermer, Illinois, a nod to the original name of Northbrook, Shermerville. Another element that remains consistent through all of his movies is a strong emphasis on pop songs and music cues. He also frequently employs several filmic devices such as characters breaking the fourth wall; additional scenes under and/or after the closing credits; non-linear montages; and using a freeze-frame as the closing shot before the end credits.
