John Hughes month continues on Cracked Movie Club! In 1984, after writing a string of successful comedies, Hughes made his directorial debut with Sixteen Candles, which launched the careers of 80s it-girl Molly Ringwald, John and Joan Cusack, and that weird guy who would go on to play the janitor in The Breakfast Club.
On this week’s episode, Tom is joined by guest host Bridgett Greenberg and Cracked’s Kristi Harrison as they discuss the numerous amazing but often-overlooked performances in the film, how the film’s status as a classic coming-of-age comedy is weighed down by its many problematic aspects, and whether or not Jake Ryan’s pants have a belt built into them.

As the 1980s drew to a close, John Carpenter released They Live, an indictment of Reagan-era politics, a sharp critique of the economic disparity in America, and also a movie about Rowdy Roddy Piper wearing a pair of magic sunglasses.
On this week’s episode, Tom is joined by guest host Bridgett Greenberg and comedian Matt McCarthy as they discuss the surprisingly still-relevant themes of They Live, John Carpenter’s ongoing quest to discredit any and all forms of authority, and the legendary performance of Roddy Piper as John Nada, which is simultaneously soulfully understated and lip-wigglingly insane.

Christopher Nolan month concludes on Cracked Movie Club! In the mid-2000s, Christopher Nolan resurrected a Batman film franchise that had lain dormant since 1997’s Batman and Robin, a movie bad enough to kill any superhero forever. Nolan’s idea of a Batman “grounded in reality” was such a success that his Dark Knight trilogy grossed $3 billion worldwide and simultaneously revived and forever ruined the superhero genre.
This week, Tom and Abe are joined by Cracked’s Associate Producer of Video Bridgett Greenberg as they discuss the epic sets, incredible stunts, and ridiculous voices that made the Dark Knight Trilogy such a landmark success, and how Bridgett really just wants to be Catwoman.
Next week marks the beginning of September, and thus starts Kathryn Bigelow month on Cracked Movie Club. On Saturday, September 9th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles, Tom and Abe are joined by Cracked’s Soren Bowie and Carmen Angelica for Cracked Movie Club’s first ever live show where they will discuss the 1991 bank-robbing, surfer bromance classic Point Break.
