Subject: I just bought "The Lost Boys" on DVD

Written By: Triviamom on 08/24/05 at 8:49 pm

I just got it at Blockbuster for $15. Waiting for the youngsters to fall asleep so I can watch it in peace & quiet. I picked up Fried Green Tomatoes, also.

I just got it at Blockbuster for $15. I picked up Fried Green Tomatoes, also.I loved that movie when it was released. It was like the Interview with a Vampire of its time... without the interview, of course. :P I just can't get over your weird choice of snacks. ;)

I haven't seen it since the early 90s. Has it withstood the test of time? If it has, I might snag myself a copy, too. :)

A dollar well spent.

Actually i only have the original VHS ex-rental release of it which i've had for god knows how many years now. I don't bother with DVD versions of movies because they're a dime a dozen & you can find them everywhere, even your local Wallmart etc. The ex-rentals released on the original release date are far more collectible & more valuble to me. You're right though, it stands the test of time, not that that matters since i looooove & prefere movies that look really dated & very 80s. How can you go wrong with this movie though, top film all the way. "Your eating maggots Micheal" LOL. "My own brother a sheesh suckin vampire, wait till mom hears about this" LOL

Kiefer Sutherland played such a great villian in Stand By Me aswell,which also had Correy Feldman in it. Another top 80s flick & one of my all time favourites, absolutly brilliant. I don't really like the show 24, but i'll admit he's a fine actor. He was also great in Young Guns 1 & 2 also two great 80s films. Well tecnically i think part 2 was 1990, correct me if i'm wrong. Maybe 89 for theatres 90 for VHS, i can't remember now.

Actually now that i think of it we got to see Stand By Me at school as a treat as well as Explorers, Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom & i think Boy Who Could Fly aswell. All on seperate ocassions ofcourse. To be honest i couldn't believe they allowed us to watch the Indiana Jones one because of that scene with the guy getting his heart ripped out, but i thought it was totally cool though.
