And watch for a Breakfast Club reunion this season when Molly Ringwald makes a special appearance.

What to Watch This Weekend: Movies


Most people have at some point had a supervisor they detested, sometimes even labelling them as completely evil. Renfield, on the other hand, tells the tale of Dracula’s emotionally tormented assistant.

And Nicolas Cage is the ideal actor to depict a brash, forceful force. Renfield is currently playing in theatres if you and your friends want to see Nicolas Cage perform as Nicolas Cage.

The Pope’s Exorcist

The Pope’s Exorcist, which debuts in theatres, is another choice that can stir up something deep within of you.

The main reason to see this movie is that Father Gabriele Amorth, a well-known Italian priest who carried out over 100,000 exorcisms for the Vatican (yes, over 100,000), served as its inspiration.

The film is based on several of Amorth’s memoirs, and Russell Crowe dons a white collar to play him in what is reportedly his first starring role in a horror movie.

Where to Watch: In theaters


This week sees the release of the Japanese animated adventure film Suzume. A high school girl and an enigmatic guy fight to avert different disasters throughout Japan in this anime by renowned anime director Makoto Shinkai.

Hokuto Matsumura, who is also a member of the Japanese pop group SixTONES, is one of those providing his voice.

How about the fact that Makoto Shinkai’s two previous films, Your Name and Weathering With You, were both Certified Fresh at 98% and 92% on the Tomatometer, and Suzume is currently also Fresh at 94%, if the allure of anime and a pop idol isn’t quite enough for you?

When it premiered in Japan in November of last year, it ranked fourth among all movies there in terms of box office revenue.

Flashdance (1983)

Finally, as part of our RT25 celebration, we present Flashdance from 1983.

The ideal time to watch this cult favourite romance drama, which stars Jennifer Beals as a passionate young dancer aspiring to be a professional ballerina, is really now that it is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Legendary producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, who would later team up to make movies like Beverly Hills Cop, Bad Boys, and The Rock, worked together for the first time on it. I

n the end, some of the music video-like scenes from this movie had an influence on other films from the decade, including Purple Rain, Top Gun, and Footloose.

Despite being rated Rotten on the Tomatometer, Beals’ performance was praised by reviewers and fans alike.

The film in question had two songs nominated for Best Original Song at the Oscars, and the song “Flashdance… What a Feeling” took home the award. Simply watch it if you want to experience that sensation as well.
