# 263 – Sixteen Candles

Classic Movie

After having a pretty boring couple of days I decided to watch another classic from John Hughes. Most people probably know his work, I mean, Home Alone is the number one Christmas movie in Estonia – probably one of the favorites among Americans as well. It is my childhood and Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club should have been my teenage years. I guess I am a late bloomer. Anyway, next to Sixteen Candles, I find the later addition to…

# 183 – Footloose (remake)

Classic Movie

A while back I watched Footloose with Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer, now I have the opportunity to watch it again with fresh faces but totally the same story-line as it seems. The dancing seems a little different though, although the plot seems to be happening in the same period of time. Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough are the stars to this remake and based on the trailer – it is going to be a yawn-fest or just a good…

# 159 – The Breakfast Club

Classic Movie

Another classic has made its way to my mind, this time it was due to my roommates comments about the fact that I hadn’t seen it yet.

The Breakfast Club tells a story about five teenagers who get detention and…

# 156 – Pretty Woman

Classic Movie

I listed this as a classic cause it kind of is a classic for me. I was a year old when it came out, I of course didn’t watch it then but I think I was quite young when I first laid on my eyes on this lovely and a little raw love story that made Julia Roberts famous. Julia and Richard Gere took upon roles that aren’t your typical romantic comedy types, which I find  a little funny because…

# 130 – Gone With the Wind

Classic Movie

With 4,5 hours a sleep under my belt (New Year came with such joy) I managed to stay up quite late and therefore I got to watch the 1939 classic Gone With the Wind. I was surprised how excited my mom was, she has seen this for at least 4 times already and read the novel of the same name (written by Margaret Mitchell) – I had only seen some bits and pieces of this movie over the years. But…

# 87 – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Classic Movie

So there it is, my first review about a movie that can be called a classic – Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. First of all, I had now idea that George Peppard was so handsome when he was young, I know he didn’t look that bad in A-Team but I was too young to recognize his handsomeness. And second of all, the fashion in the movie is timeless – I know, it isn’t something new,…
