The Breakfast Club 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray
Movie: 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
Disc: 3 out of 4 stars
The film that defined the final wave of Baby Boomers and made the late filmmaker John Hughes a household name has aged far better than the many inferior knock-offs it spawned. One of the first genre movies that featured teen characters that were at once stereotypical and original, it set a standard that has rarely been equaled. Sadly, all of the extras, while quite good, were included in the last DVD release, but the newly cleaned-up Blu-ray audio and visuals are superb.
Technical specs: aspect ratio: Widescreen (1.85:1/1080p), audio: English (DTS-HD 5.1 Master, Dolby Digital 2.0), French (Dolby DTS 2.0 Stereo) subtitles: English SDH, French and Spanish.
Special features include:
* 12-part retrospective documentary
* The Most Convenient Definitions: the Origins of the Brat Pack
* Cast commentary
