THEY WENT FROM ZEROES TO HEROES IN ONE FANTASTIC WEEKEND.

If you can’t get a date… make one! After proving himself the king of heartfelt teen flicks with Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, writer-director John Hughes infused the genre with a hefty dose of wacked-out sci-fi comedy in Weird Science, a film where every teenage boy’s wildest fantasies come to life.

Perennially picked-on high school nerds Gary (Anthony Michael Hall, Sixteen Candles) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) are sick of their status at the bottom of the social food chain. Using Wyatt’s computer, the two hatch a plan to create their dream woman – and following a massive power surge, that woman unexpectedly appears in the form of Lisa (Kelly LeBrock). Gorgeous, intelligent, and blessed with limitless magic powers, Lisa makes the boys’ dreams come true… but what about Wyatt’s gun-toting psycho older brother Chet (Bill Paxton), and the two bullies (Robert Downey Jr and Vamp’s Robert Rusler) determined to put them back in their place?

Inspired by EC Comics and boosted by a killer soundtrack (including the classic title theme by Oingo Boingo), Weird Science has never looked better than in this new special edition, including an exclusive extended version of the film featuring deleted scenes never released on home video before.

80s classic revamped

This 80s classic has been revamped by a 4K scan. Whilst this may seem a good idea, the scan noticeably picks up the grain of the film. This can be off putting as you sometimes tend to focus on the graininess of the picture rather than the film itself. The extra deleted scenes don’t really add any extra value to the films story and it’s evident why they were deleted in the first place. All in all, a good effort to improve an old film, but sometimes classics shouldn’t be messed with. Best watch the low resolution version for an authentic 80s experience, or better still, watch it on vhs!

Teenage Fumblings

The purchase went as well as expected, I pre-ordered this as soon as I saw it. The steelbook has external and internal artwork, and this edition comes packed with extra features that are well worth a look. John Hughes, as always, captures the depth of teenage desires and thought processes of growing pains. A very funny film that took me back to my childhood. Bill Paxton is very funny in this movie, and watch out for Robert Downey Jr in one of his early roles. Fantastic film.

Steelbook

Just love it when the classic are released in the Steel books
