Here are five 80s gems you have to watch this summer.
The Breakfast Club
This John Hughes classic presents us with five different stereotypes – the criminal, the jock, the brain, the basket case and the beauty queen – who must all endure Saturday detention together.
This movie has depth and its iconic depiction of young people has survived three decades for good reason. From the opening Bowie quotations to the Tears for Fears soundtrack, you know you are in good hands.

Here are five things you should pretend to know this Wednesday.
31 per cent of students would change courses
The 2013 National Student Survey run by Campus.ie shows that 31 per cent of students in Ireland would reconsider their choice of college course.
The survey also shows that 71 per cent say their course prospectus was honest and 73 per cent say most of their lecturers are good.

CAO change of mind - my experience
When it comes to making decisions, even now, I’m terrible. Luckily enough I did Transition Year which gave me an extra year to decide what I wanted to do. Work experience was a great help as it narrowed things down for me – a week spent in my old primary school showed me I definitely didn’t have the patience to teach kids.
The Breeders @ Vicar Street - review
