    I nearly spit out my Cheerios when I read this! Classic! I wish I had that for my senior quote in my high school year book! :D

    If you're seriously mistaking Treat Williams for "classy" or "high brow", rent DEEP RISING.

    :lol: whoops. i was thinking of the guy from that shark movie. deep rising is a movie i still need to see i guess. but i doubt it compares to the dark backwards :)
     
  3. I thought all the films were great but if I had to put them in an order it would be as the following:
    Fright Night
    Lost Boys
    Near Da

    04. They're all good. But I've objectively lost my taste for Near Dark completely. The characters are so obnoxious, I wish they would never speak. Just Mae and Caleb's father should be allowed to speak. Okay, and the little sister. And that guy at the bus stop who suspected Caleb of being an addict. I hate the rest of the dialogue. None of the other characters should be allowed to speak.

    Near Dark's ending ruins the film for me. Love conquers all, apparently, even vampirism! Hard pass.

    Fright Night never connected with me. I tried.

    Lost Boys, though? Consistent all the way through: delicious 80s cheese. No goopy ending, either! Give me Keifer, the Frog Bros, Sweaty Sax Guy, bizarre Laddie, Stoner Gramps, and Death by Stereo any day. CRY LITTLE SISTAH!

    No shame in that.
