John Hughes ruled the 80’s. He may not have been prolific and not all of his films a hit (She’s Having a Baby anyone?), but he struck nerves with his films that seemed to effortlessly understand the 80’s teenager; never pandering or pretending, but able to be genuinely heartfelt and funny, whether it was the wacky Weird Science or the quintessential The Breakfast Club, he just seemed to ‘get it.’

Another 4K UHD title I bought on release day that will languish on my media shelf for the next X years until I can rebuild my HT.

In this instance if one is 4k capable the 1080p blu-ray is obsolete. All the special features minus the photo gallery were ported over and we got back the commentary not seen since the 1st DVD. I'll gladly take the commentary track over the photo gallery.
