/Answers: The Best Movie Needle Drops

Every week in /Answers, we attempt to answer a new pop culture-related question. This week’s edition asks “What is your favorite “needle drop” in the movies?” What use of a pre-existing song in a film stands out to you the most? As always, we have submissions from the /Film writing crew and podcast team. This week, we are also joined by director Edgar Wright, whose music-powered action film Baby Driver inspired this week’s topic.

If you’d like to share your pick for your favorite movie needle drop, please send your thoughts to slashfilmpitches@gmail.com for a chance to be featured on the site. Find our choices below!

Domino's Ferris Bueller's Day Off Commercial

Most commercials are awful. That’s just the reality of the advertising world. But every now and then, a solid commercial comes along that almost makes you forget that a company is trying to sell you something. Such is the case with a new Domino’s commercial that takes more than a cue from the John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Stranger Things supporting actor Joe Keery (aka the son of Parks and Recreation star Ben Schwartz) stars in the commercial that puts him in the shoes of a cool Ferris Bueller type teen who is trying to make it home before his Domino’s pizza arrives. It’s quite the loyal, albeit abridged recreation of Ferris Bueller’s race against the clock to get home before his parents get back from work.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Best End Credits Sequences

Not too long ago, we highlighted a video that was bold enough to pick the best opening credits sequences from movies. They left out some that could have easily made the list without any argument, but it was never going to be an easy task.

This time, we have a video that tries to accomplish the seemingly easier task of picking the best end credits sequences in movies. We’re not talking about credits scenes or teases like Marvel Studios does but rather credits sequences that both give credit to the cast and crew but also do something stylish and/or fun to end the movie.

So what are the best end credits sequences in movies? Find out below. Read More »

Anthony Petrie Charts 2 - Godzilla

While this weekend brings Mass Hysteria 2 to Gallery 1988 with some outstanding new pieces from 100% Soft, next weekend brings another sophomore show from one of our favorite artists.

Simply called Charts, the show features incredible pieces paying tribute to Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters and more. And now he’s back with more.

Charts 2 brings Anthony Petrie back to Gallery 1988 with a whole new batch of artwork inspired by films such as Up, Godzilla, Rocky, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Grand Budapest Hotel and even television shows such as The Walking Dead.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off Print - Marq Spusta

This past summer marked the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and there were various screenings of the film here and there to celebrate the milestone, but otherwise it’s been a pretty quiet celebration. It’s certainly nowhere near as buzzworthy as the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future last year or Ghostbusters the year before that. That’s a real shame, because this John Hughes classic is one of the best coming of age comedies of all time, and it deserves some celebratory love. That’s where artist Marq Spusta and Dark Hall Mansion come into play with a new Ferris Bueller’s Day Off print that you can get today. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Ferris Bueller

Most diehard John Hughes probably know the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off soundtrack was never officially made available to the public, which is surprising for a Hughes film. At the time of the classic comedy’s theatrical release, the writer/director believed the song choices wouldn’t have made for a popular soundtrack, so he refused to release one.

If you were on Hughes’ fan mailing list in the 1980s, then you might have gotten a single with a couple of the songs. But the rest of us have been out of luck until now. 30 years after Ferris Bueller’s Day Off first hit theaters, its soundtrack is now officially coming out.
