THE LOST BOYS (dir: Joel Schumacher, R) - Michelle says, "I can’t believe no one’s reviewed this teeny bopper gem, but with Corey Haim’s recent and totally unsurprising death, someone’s got to step up. Primary associations? Vampires, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, mullets, the Coreys, Jack Bauer in a trench coat, mullets, Bill from BILL AND TED, grandpa from THE GILMORE GIRLS, Diane Wiest, mullets, that final confrontation between the vampire gang and the Coreys (featuring about 20 minutes of screaming and gore and ending with the world’s best use of 'People Are Strange'). Oh, and mullets. See it now, before you rent the straight-to-video sequel and before Corey Feldman disappoints everyone with LOST BOYS: THE THIRST."
MATEWAN (dir: John Sayles, PG-13) - Bart says, "I could write a loving tribute to any of the dozen or so movies that John Sayles directed in the 80s and 90s. From THE RETURN OF THE SECAUCUS SEVEN to LIMBO, each one of his films takes a healthy dose of White Man's Guilt and constructs a compelling, human story around it and populates it with unforgettable characters. MATEWAN is surely one of his best, about a West Virginia miners' strike in the 20s, and is a great place to dip your feet into Sayles's oeuvre, if for no other reason than it's the first one I saw, and it made me want to watch them all. Sayles's last few movies haven't quite gripped me like the rest, partly because the dialogue he writes has become more and more stylized and didactic, but I'll watch anything the guy puts his name on, because I know it will be a film full of ideas that captures little known slices of Americana that prove just how noble and awful we Americans are."
WITHNAIL & I (dir: Bruce Robinson, Not Rated) - Greg says, "I discovered W&I rather late, probably around the year 2000. Which means that it's also not too late for anyone else to learn to worship this monumentally funny and endlessly quotable tale of two struggling and self-absorbed alcoholics/actors trying to have a simple weekend in the country but being flummoxed at every turn. You don't have to be drunk to watch this, but it couldn't hurt either."
