Five Favorite Films with Corey Feldman

Summary

Think of some of the most beloved movies of the 1980s and chances are Corey Feldman made an appearance in them. From Gremlins and Stand By Me to The Goonies and The Lost Boys, the young actor notched up a succession of classics before those heady days of teen idolatry -- the so-called ?Two Coreys,? named for his movies with fellow pin-up Corey Haim -- would go on to enshrine him on the adolescent bedroom walls of an era. Though his well-publicized period since has been erratic -- and marred by tragedy, with Haim?s unfortunate death earlier this year -- Feldman has proved that he?s a survivor, returning to the role of vampire hunter Edgar Frog that he made famous in The Lost Boys. With this week?s latest installment, Lost Boys: The Thirst, reuniting him with fellow ?87 Frog brother Jamison Newlander, Feldman has come full circle -- complete with signature head band and copy of Batman No. 14. We spoke to the actor recently and asked him to name his Five Favorite Films. He politely declined to include Gremlins, despite RT?s insistence. Back to Article

Good point there, especially with the James Bond one. Understandably, though, they only include trilogies/compilations when it's too hard to pick an exact favorite of the series; it'd probably be better if the question here was changed to "Cory Feldman's Favorite Movie Series'".

Guy made License to Drive. That gets him a lifetime pass of credibility and relevance.

Think he means for a movie to be underrated it generally helps for it not to be universally praised like. The Color Purple. I think its just rated.

Can't speak for anyone else, but i think the dark whimsy of the story is captured in a better i.e. less creepy fashion in the older version.

The new one felt rushed and weak, and just because it stuck better to the source material doesn't make it a better film, it just makes me not like the book that much more.

Think he meant height blessed, temperature challenged, numerically named people TCO. I'd report him for abuse if I were you or Short Hot Ten. You don't have to put up with that kind of stuff. You guys have suffered enough in your history.

@rle4lunch oh it does. Apparently everyone who is gonna watch a movie wants it to be closer to the source material, why does that shitty old one have to be the exception? The only film that managed to stay off the book & have it's own original storyline successfully is The Wizard of Oz.

I would say The Shining as well, i love Stephen King, but he's wrong about that movie. Think he just let Kubrick rub him the wrong way.

jeff, I would imagine with the number of sets he's been on, he knows a thing or two more about art direction than you do. Just sayin'

I'm making fun of his phrasing. And yeah, I've been on a movie set, and never have I heard anyone with any knowledge in the matter say anything like that. Movie directors/actors/producers don't say stuff like "Hey man, that's some good art direction" or "Check out that art direction". Know what I mean?

Can't argue with the Wizard of Oz. Great list.
