A while back I re-watched Some Kind of Wonderful on the DVD. Excellent & underrated film; my appreciation for the movie increases with each subsequent viewing. Would definitely like to see this on Blu. This film is unfortunately & unfairly compared to PIP. Though the storyline is similar (with a gender change, i.e. Molly Ringwald's character is similar to the Eric Stoltz character in SKOW) I still feel SKOW film stands on it's own & is completely different in structure, characters, etc. The scenes with Keith's father hassling him to look into colleges (since he was getting close to graduation) really hit home. I was a teen in late high school when this film came out, and I also didn't want to go to college - though my family wanted me to. I did eventually go, and now that I'm much older do appreciate the emphasis on education - it is important. So, I really felt this aspect of the film was very realistic. The unspoken feelings that Watts had for Keith were very well-handled in the film. The sexual tension was very obvious, especially the kiss they shared in the garage - or when they were both lying on the bed in her room. It was obvious what was going on here, even though a lot was left unsaid. This is another poignant & realistic element in the film - i.e., they were friends that grew up together & Keith didn't think of her "in that way" due to the friendship. The infamous Amanda Jones character (Lea Thompson) was also more than just a cookie-cutter pretty girl that the working-class Keith fell for. She really showed a lot of integrity & class when she wouldn't take the earrings Keith had spent a fortune on - and more importantly, when she convinced Keith to go after Watts at the very end. I.e., it took AJ to make it clear to Keith how Watts really felt about him. And, of course, any film John Hughes is involved in always has a great soundtrack. Really enjoy all of the songs in the film, especially "I Go Crazy" by Flesh for Lulu; "Turn to the Sky" by The March Violets; and the great Elvis Presley cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Lick the Tins - that played over the end credits.
