    Don't get me wrong: I'm grateful to see that these three great 80's flicks directed by teen movie director extraordinare John Hughes have FINALLY been remastered in Dolby 5.1 and DTS. And the sound is great...I watched "Weird Science" and could really tell the difference. But why couldn't there by any special features on these discs? All we get is the original trailer and some rental suggestions. Why couldn't Hughes offer commentary on these movies? After all, he provided a really interesting one for "Ferris Bueller's Day Off. There MUST be some great stories behind the making of these movies; why won't he tell them?
    Also, I know there was an E! True Hollywood Story featuring the journey behind "Sixteen Candles." Why couldn't that be included? Why not have cast biographies and filmographies at least? That's easy enough!
    Since I adore all three films and the sound remastering is incredible, I will rate this set four stars. But not adding any special features to really separate this new box set from the lackluster original DVD versions....what a shame!

    For me, there couldn't be a more fitting name for this set of DVDs. Watching these films was an instant flashback to those years I've so longed to forget. Although I graduated just after The Breakfast ClubSixteen Candles, and Weird Science were released, they were certainly still popular when I was in school, and watching them brought back memories- and reminded me how great these movies are.

    While these teen angst cult classics will be available individually this fall as well, The High School Flashback Collection brings the three of them together for the first time, which is absolutely brilliant. Whether you host a marathon 80's movie party at your house on a Friday night (and require everyone to wear leg warmers, jelly bracelets, and parachute pants) or simply sit down with a bowl of popcorn one Sunday afternoon, you're going to enjoy three films that helped define a generation.

    Writer/director John Hughes is brilliant, and these three films are the jewels in his crown. And with stars like Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, Kelly LeBrock, and Emilio Estevez, how can you go wrong?

    (I'm not even going to get into the synopsis ofThe Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, or Weird Science; if you haven't seen them at least half a dozen times since their release, you shouldn't be reading this, you should be watching the films!)

    SPECIAL FEATURES

    For the most part, the extras on these discs aren't anything to write home about. Having said that, what they lack in quantity, they almost make up for in meatiness.

    The Breakfast Club includes Sincerely Yours, a 12-part documentary featuring cast and crew (although not surprisingly, Ms. Ringwald is missing...) reflecting on the making of the film, sharing stories, and talking about their lives at the time.

    Here is some great news! The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, & Weird Science have just been re-released on DVD in remastered style after very disappointing DVD transfers in the late 90's.
    The Renunion collection allows purchasers the chance to buy all three DVD's in a package deal. It makes sense to do this because it is cheaper than buying them separately. In fact, you practically get one for free! A friend of mine bought the package as soon as it was released. I think it will sell out, so hop to it!
    Each title has been remastered although they are not perfect. Still, considering the age of these films, they look very pleasing.
    All three are now 16:9 enhanced which is a blessing, no more large black bars top and bottom which plagued the 1998 DVD of "Breakfast Club" (for example).
    Even better news for purists, is that the original soundtracks have been reinstated into the films. This is denoted on each separate cover, and is an important factor. for too long we have had to put up with altered soundtracks. Sixteen Candles soundtrack was butchered so bad that the film lost its spark. Well no more with this release.
    The DVD's boast a DTS soundtrack for each movie. Sorry, but it's nothing to write home about! In the case of "Breakfast Club", the opening song "Don't you forget about me" still sounds very lame and mono as it did on the previous DVD release! The same applies for portions of "sixteen Candles". DTS can be a bit of a gimmick as demonstrated by all three DVD's. Don't be fooled in this regard.
    Extras? Sorry to report that Universal have decided not to include extras on any on any of the dics (except for trailers). This is a shame because this is what DVD's are all about.

    I think we should all just pretend that John Hughes died tragically in 1990, shortly after working on the brilliant "Uncle Buck." He was not at all involved in such films as "Baby's Day Out" or "Home Alone 3." He did, however, make several great movies in the 1980s, including "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," and "Weird Science," the films enclosed in this lovely collection.

    A lot of people have been very critical of the inclusion of "Weird Science" in this collection, but I am not one of them. It's true that this is not really a Brat Pack movie, but it is a John Hughes '80s film, and it is great. It's also the third movie he directed. "The Breakfast Club" is the second. "Sixteen Candles" is the first. So, basically, this collection gives us the first three classics that John Hughes brought us, so I don't see the problem.

    "Sixteen Candles" (1984): This will always be my favorite of the John Hughes movies. It's a bonafide classic of the '80s with wonderful performances from Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall. This is my favorite because it's really funny (Long Duk Dong especially, and Anthony Michael Hall's team of geeks) but also sorta touching. Anyone can identify with Samantha Baker's sadness, and how she doesn't really know why she's sad, just that she is sad. That's really quite touching, in my opinion. There are some great scenes, like the one between Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall in the shop room, or when Molly Ringwald and her dad (Paul Dooley, recently on "Desperate Housewives") have a nice conversation at night in the living room. It's scenes like this that make the movie truly great, more so than other teen movies.
