It was 20 years ago today . . . we’ve just had 40 years since Sgt. Pepper and just 6 days ago was the double-decade anniversary of Appetite for Destruction.

Journalists tend to think of anniversaries as a kind artificial peg for stories and unless you work for Rolling Stone, they tend to be ignored. But there’s one I cannot help but celebrate and urge you not to miss, especially if you’re over 28 and the following piece of dialogue brings back fond, fond memories:

Look at your reflection in the mirror. You’re a creature of the night Michael, just like out of a comic book! You’re a vampire Michael! My own brother, a goddamn, shit-sucking vampire. You wait ’till mom finds out, buddy!


Oh yes. On July 31st 2007 it will be 20 years since The Lost Boys came out.




My favourite bit in the film? Probably when Sam first goes to the Frog brothers comic strip store and starts rearranging the Superman comics to the horror of the brothers:

You can’t put the Superman, no. 77 with the 200s. They haven’t even discovered red kryptonite yet. And you can’t put the no. 98 with the 300s. Lori Lemaris hasn’t even been introduced.

A great, great film and still stands up today but whatever happened to the stunner who played Star?

    The stunner you’re referring to is Jamie Gertz…Still pretty hot IMHO. Doesn’t seem to be up to much lately…last I remember her in was Twister.

    My favorite part was after they staked Marko. He bled all over Sam, Edgar, and Allen, and when they got outside, they were all glittery lol
