Last week, I watched The Lost Boys. Classic, 1987 vampire movie starring Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, the two Coreys (if you are from this generation, this needs no explanation. If you are not of the 80's, it is Corey Haim and Corey Feldman), and Jamie Gertz.
Sweet cast. Great movie.
So, here's my question: why is this one of my favorite movies of all time, when I'm not the least bit interested in the whole Twilight thing? Is it because it is not my generation? Is it because there is so much hype about the whole saga? Is it because I'm getting old, and I just don't get it?
I told you this would be a bias post.
I have not read the books. I have not seen the movies. The whole premise of vampires and werewolves just seems so.... silly to me! But why did it fly in the 1987 version of "paranormal"?
Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric were definitely two hotties in my day. Are Taylor Laughtner and Robert Pattinson our modern day "Lost Boys"? (oh, how I hope I got those names right! That goes to show you how little I know about the series!)
I'm thinking it might be time to see what I've been missing with Twilight, etc. If I see it on Netflix, I might take a look at it. And if I like it enough, I'll try to read the books. This is totally going against my grain because I'm a big fan of reading the book first, then checking out the movie. But this time, I think I'll do it the opposite way.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject? Do you love/hate the Twilight saga? Why? What makes it so great? What turns you off about it?
I would love to hear from all the "Team Edward"s and "Team Jacob"s out there (see, I do know that much!)
What should I expect? Total genius or total ridiculousness?
Help this 80's girl come into the 21st century!
