On This Date 35 years Ago Five Teenagers Had Saturday Detention ...
On this date 35 years ago five teenagers had Saturday detention. From then on, movie fans around the world would forever remember the events of that day as ‘The Breakfast Club.’
It isn’t widely known by our fans that we consider Metaflix to have two patron saints of our site and Youtube channel: Roger Ebert and John Hughes. Ebert for his lifetime commitment and acclaim to being the best film critic to have ever lived (be sure to watch his 2014 documentary ‘Life Itself’ in addition to the 'Best Movies You’ve Never Seen video we made about it linked here) and Hughes for the multitude of extraordinary movies he wrote and directed over the course of his abbreviated career.
Stay tuned for an upcoming video that we’ve long been excited to make about the music Hughes timelessly featured in his films!
