Quote of the Day: Above the Law

abovethelawseagal
Nico Toscani: You know something Fox. Right now in Europe they’re trying some 80 year-old camp guard for Nazi war crimes. And all around our country they got guys on death row for murdering 1, 2, 3 guys. And they probably deserve what they’re going to get. But you & I… we know a couple of people that are personally responsible for the death of what, 50,000 non-military personnel? Librarians, teachers, doctors, women, children. All dead! We’ve wiped-out entire cultures! And for what? Not one C.I.A. agent has ever been tried, much less accused of any crimes. You guys think you’re above the law. Well, you ain’t above mine.

So how come you can leave, but when it comes to me
Always something I must prove to you

Prince March Madness Tournament Winner – Purple Rain

maxresdefault
What an incredible finish to this year’s March Madness Tournament!!! Most of the matchups had been pretty much landslides up to this point. But man, these finals were close! But, when the dust has settled, “Purple Rain” was the winner. As I have been saying, there were four different places to vote. Here is the breakdown:

Twitter
Purple Rain – 31
When Doves Cry – 31

Main Return to the ’80s Facebook Page
Purple Rain – 8
When Doves Cry – 8

rtt80s.com (web site)
Purple Rain – 3
When Doves Cry – 5

And the deciding factor was the Return to the ’80s Facebook Group:

Purple Rain – 16
When Doves Cry – 12

So the grand total was:

Purple Rain – 58
When Doves Cry – 56

Thank you so much for your participating!!! We’ll see you next year!!!

Mahoney: I look for the same in a woman.

**Repost** The Breakfast Club remake is in the works

I normally don’t like April Fool’s pranks. You normally can’t believe anything you read online. But on this day, the fake posts are magnified. However, 4 years ago today I joined in the fun, and posted this fake story. It has gone on to be one of the most popular posts of this site! Some people even believed this. It was a lot of fun writing it. So, I will share it again since there are literally thousands of more followers to this site.  Enjoy!

Well Hollyweird is at it again! They are going to destroy yet another one of our movies. They had to mess with Red Dawn, The Karate Kid, RoboCop, Annie, and the upcoming Ghostbusters. Now, these unoriginal people are going to remake one of our most beloved ’80s films – The Breakfast Club.

A spokesman for Universal Pictures announced that the film will open on March 24, 2016 for a four-day opening weekend. This remake will be written and directed by Judd Apatow. Apatow, who was executive producer of the critically praised, award-winning series Freaks and Geeks, made the following statement: “The Breakfast Club was very influential in my film making career. The characters and storyline leave some great groundwork. We are going to bring this classic to the modern day.”

New BC

The cast for this remake is as follows:

  • Taylor Swift (Valentine’s Day) as Claire Standish, the princess, originally portrayed by Molly Ringwald
  • Zac Efron (High School Musical) as Andrew “Andy” Clark, the athlete, originally portrayed by Emilio Estevez
  • Justin Bieber (Behaving Badly) as John Bender, the criminal, originally portrayed by Judd Nelson
  • Jaden Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness) as Brian Ralph Johnson, the brain, originally portrayed by Anthony Michael Hall
  • Kristen Stewart (Twilight) as Allison Reynolds, the basket case, originally portrayed by Ally Sheedy.

A couple of popular side characters have also been cast:
Shia Labeouf (Transformers) will play Carl the janitor and James Franco (The Interview) will play assistant
principal Dick Vernon.

Taylor Swift said, “I am super excited for this opportunity to play Claire. And I am even more excited that I will also be contributing some sick beats in support of this movie!”
These “sick beats” she is referring to is the new Breakfast Club Soundtrack. Taylor will be performing 5 songs on the soundtrack, including a duet with Kanye West on a remake of “Don’t You (Forget About Me)”. The soundtrack will also include songs from Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, One Direction, Rihanna, and Meghan Trainor.

Ugh! This whole thing is just a horrible idea! What’s next? A Back to the Future remake?!? A Goonies reboot?!? Another Ghostbusters remake – this time with a male cast!?! oh wait.

Well, what do you think? Are these remakes out of control? Or do you think these movies are a great homage to our generation of movies?

I would like to give a special Thank You to Tommy Flanagan for giving me the inside information on this travesty.

Yeah, That’s the ticket!
