‘The Lost Boys’ At 30: Facts You Never Knew

The Lost Boys Facts – 30 things you never new about the movie

The Lost Boys Facts – Kat Hughes takes a look back at the classic movie, which is just celebrating its 30th birthday.

The Lost Boys Facts

The Lost Boys, directed by Joel Schumacher, is one of the best films to come out of the 1980’s. A true product of its time, the film is aimed perfectly at the MTV generation and made vampires both cool and sexy. Up until then we had a lot of Dracula types, all old and stuffy. Schumacher brought them up to date, dressed them in leathers, and gave them motorcycles. If you’ve seen the film, I dare you to not say that you’d have joined David and his gang in their endless partying.

It seems odd to say, but a film so centred on teenage years, and the transition from boy to man,

Listen: Mel Brooks Talks How Solarbabies Got Made

Fans of 80's genre fare will certainly be familiar with the post-apocalyptic oddity, Solarbabies. But for the uninitiated there's a really good chance the Mel Brooks produced science fiction family film that blends the world of Mad Max, the sentimentality of E.T. and the sport of rollerblading together completely passed by unnoticed.

Either way, this is a red letter day for all. In a recent episode of the "bad movie podcast" How Did this Get Made, the show dug deep into the film's many strange choices. Now, the gang behind the podcast have even pulled in Mel Brooks to talk more in depth about the project.

You can hear that conversation below.

The Top Five Moments From Last Night’s “Revenge”

Previously, On Reven8e.

This week, Emily loses her religion, Nolan gets laid, and Patrick meets the family.

Here are five highlights:

Wham Bam, Thank You Man

Nolan is making the most of his post-prison life, and we join in as he has a tender moment with a hot piece (and I tried, but I couldn’t find any info about who played this part):

Nolan: “Tell my driver where, and he’ll be happy to provide you with your drive of shame … or fame.”

Hot Piece: ” ….”

Nolan: “Bye …”

Hot Piece: ” …”

Nolan: “… You.”

A bemused Emily interrupts the heartbreaking goodbye, and we have this classic Nolan/Ems convo:

Emily: “Not even learning names now?”

Nolan: “Less mess. Especially after my P.T.S.D. Padma, Tyler, Sexual Damage.”

Emily: “Just be careful who you let come and go.”

Oh, Emily, don’t be crude.

Actually, she’s there for

Good Boys Gone Wild: 13 Roles That Shattered Teen Idol Images

This week's gonzo teen nightmare Spring Breakers is trumpeting the fact that two of its leads - Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez - traditionally play "good girls". But the whole "teen idol gone bad" strategy is a longstanding Hollywood tradition aimed to help transition pigeonholed teen stars into "serious" actors.

Here are a few fellas who tried the tactic, to varying degrees of success.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas in Speedway Junky

The squeaky-clean kid from Home Improvement took a step toward tarnishing his image by playing an evil, bisexual hooker in this gritty drama, giving a whole new meaning to "Tool Time"!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Mysterious Skin

Jgl also went the hustler route for his breakout from small-screen teen stardom - only the 3rd Rock star went "the full gay" in this unsettling and excellent indie drama.

Lukas Haas in Johns

Yet another teen heartthrob caught a case of gay hustleritis

All in the Family| The Top 5 Hollywood People You Don't Know Are Related

  • Pajiba
See that pretty boy up there? Does he remind you of anyone? Better yet, do you even know who he is? I do, because...well, he's a pretty boy and I make it my business to keep up with the pretty boys. And men. And women. My life is very full, but never too full for beauty -- we're supposed to stop and smell the roses but if it's the middle of winter and there are no roses, we must amuse ourselves with pretty pictures.

Anyway, I'm sure there was a point to all this. Oh yes, famously related people we don't know are related. While doing my very important Pajiba research, I often stumble upon little tidbits that surprise me. Sometimes it's porn, sometimes not; some things can be shared and others... For instance, when I searched for an image on that actor in the header pic, there were plenty of naked posterior shots.
