hey, hey, hey, hey

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Fifteen. What does The Breakfast Club mean to you?

 A whole culture defined in their own terms. A timeless work that defines a certain place in (almost) everyone's life. It's amazing how you can connect to the different characters even when you don't think you will or that you can't. It's just a great work of art.

rain keeps falling down, down

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Fourteen. What is your favourite shipping or pairing?

 I think it's pretty obvious but: Bender/Claire. Though Andy/Allison is really cute (and almost more natural? I don't know but I could see the ship actually working).

call my name or walk on by

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Thirteen. Do you think The Breakfast Club is more of a comedy or drama?

  I'd say, when it comes down to it, the movie is definitely more of a drama. There are a lot of good lines and funny scenes but, yeah, more of a drama. You could take the funny lines out and it would still make sense (though maybe not be as good). You can't do the same by taking out the drama and leaving just the fun stuff, arguably. Though they do mix together quite frequently, just as in real life.

will you recognize me?

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Twelve. What's your favourite quote?

  Oh man. There are so many great quotes in this movie. And so many are still "relevant." How can I choose just one?

  1. Bender: “You’re a neomaxizoomdweebie.”
  2. Bender: “Eat. My. Shorts.”
  3. Bender: Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
  4. Bender: “Screws fall out all the time. The world is an imperfect place.”
  5. Mr. Vernon: “Don’t mess with the bull, young man. You’ll get the horns.”
  6. Andrew: “We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.”
  7. Bender: “So, it’s sorta social, demented and sad, but social.”
  8. Andrew: “I didn’t dump my purse out on the couch and invite everyone into my problems.”
  9. Bender: Well I'm free the Saturday after that. Beyond that, I'm going to have to check my calendar.
    Vernon: Good, cause it's going to be filled. We'll keep going. You want another one? Just say the word say it. Instead of going to prison you'll come here. Are you through?
    Bender: No.
    Vernon: I'm doing society a favor.
    Bender: So?
    Vernon: That's another one right now! I've got you for the rest of your natural born life if you don't watch your step. You want another one?
    Bender: Yes.
    Vernon: You got it! You got another one right there! That's another one pal! 
  10. Bender: “Well, Brian, this is a very nutritious lunch. All the food groups are represented. Did your mom marry Mr. Rogers?”Brian: “Uh, no. Mr. Johnson.”
  11. Bender: “You won’t accept a guy’s tongue in your mouth, and you’re going to eat that?”Claire: “Can I eat?”Bender: “I don’t know. Give it a try.”
  12. Mr. Vernon: “The next time I have to come in here, I’m crackin’ skulls.”
  13. Bender: “You keep eating your hand, and you’re not gonna be hungry for lunch…”
  14. Andrew: “Just you and me. Two hits…me hitting you, you hitting the floor.”
  15. Brian: “Are you gonna be, like, a shopping bag lady?”
  16. Bender: Sweets. You couldn't ignore me if you tried.
  17. Richard Vernon: What did you wanna be when you were young?
    Carl: When I was a kid, I wanted to be John Lennon.
    Richard Vernon: Carl, don't be a goof. I'm making a serious point here. 
  18. Bender: That man... is a brownie hound.
  19. Bender: You know how you said before, how your parents use you to get back at each other? Wouldn't I be outstanding in that capacity?
  20. Brian: “Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.”

rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Eleven. Take an analytical stance; what do you think the movie means in metaphorical sense?

 Everyone hides behind a mask, a label. Maybe deep down the person knows that they aren't what the they are labeled to be. Everryone has problems, no matter who they are. And the problems don't seperate us but bring us closer together and remind us we are all human. So be kind to everyone you meet, because everyone is fighting a hard battle.

look my way, never love me

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Ten. Which character do you relate to the least?

 Either Brian or Claire... but I guess I'll go with Claire. I'm not much of  'princess'

will you stand above me?

30 Day Breakfast Club Challenge. Day Nine. How would you feel if someone remade the Breakfast Club?

(See day four.)

I think I'd be slightly disappointed that someone would want to (I mean, I'd be curious as to how they stick to the original and cast-choice and music but that's about it). It still resonates with people and I can't see how a new version would improve on the old. And if they made a 'sequel' instead were they took the original and then just modernized it with a tweaked story line and a couple added characters, maybe a new place... no. Those are called straight-to-video, usually musical, sequels that fail at life.
