same as it ever was (talking heads)

Let me try this again

I just had an awesome post about how I watched Lost Boys back to back this weekend and what a good movie it is, it took about an hour and my computer locked up and it didn't post, so I'm kinda pissed, here's a consolidated version of that post...

Jamie Grrrrrrrtz: Hotter in this or Less than Zero? Impossible to tell. She couldn't act her way out of a Mento's commercial, but this isn't really the point now is it.

Feld-dog: robbed of best supporting actor in 87'. Impossible not to laugh at his every single line of dialog delivered in this movie. Inspired choice to play part time high school comic store book employee as grizzled Vietnam-vet type character.

Haimster: Never better. Made wearing a Jackson Pollock on acid shirt and long white linen coat look cool.

dude who plays the other Frog brother: haven't seen him before or since, but amazingly channeled Keanu Reeves somehow. convinced he was Feld-dog and Haimster's drinking buddy. Probably died of alcohol poisoning drinking at the Viper Room with FD and H soon after this movie was in the can.

Jack Bauer: David would have broken Jack Bauer's neck, drank his blood then fucked Star and that annoying cross eyed chick from 24.

other vampire dudes: Looked like a bunch of Poison roadies, tubular shit.

Max: Kind of a dork until he turned into a mean looking Vampire at the end. Nice evil plan to boot, starting a weird ass vampire family with Diane Weiss.

Jason Patric: Good actor. Bonus points for his turn on the Hurlihey SNL skit where he yells, "The boy wants his dog back, you Nazi son-of-a-bitch!" Bonus points taken away for Speed 2.

Grandpa: Anyone who uses Windex as after shave and still gets laid is alright in my book.

Soundtrack: INXS, Echo and the Bunnymen and "Thou Shall Not Kill" song, kick-ass.

Twist Ending: Grandpa knew about all the damned vampires in Santa Carla, never saw that one coming, inspired such films as Usual Suspects and Fight Club, I'm convinced.

Vampires in general: Much cooler than mummies and frankenstein's monsters

editor's note: shout out to the art department or director or whoever decided to put the Rob Lowe poster on the Haimster's closet door. A moment too funny for me to do justice for in type.
