Vampires - Now in moody emo flavor!

Can you believe that there was a point in American history when a large number of people thought of this guy when they heard the word "vampire"?

22 years later:

And The Lost Boys was directed by Joel "Batman and Robin" Schumacher! Can you believe that? The guy who killed the Batman franchise made a better vampire movie than anything we have now! Doesn't that just piss you off?


Hey, anybody wanna see Pattinson meet Sutherland in a dark alley?

C'mon. I can't be the only one.

Happy Black Friday!

Star Trek: The Exhibition at Hollywood and Highland

If you're a Trekkie and love looking at musty old costumes in glass cases, then get ready to part with some greenbacks. Star Trek: The Exhibition is currently running at the Hollywood and Highland complex through Dec. 27th.

I'm not gonna lie - I'm a Trekkie (mostly TNG), and I'd been to the Exhibition when it was at the Queen Mary Dome in Long Beach, last year. The good news is that it's back in Southern California for anyone who missed it. The bad news is that the venue is considerably smaller. There were more than a few attractions that were M.I.A., this time around. Most notably the Original Series bridge (Kirk's chair was there, but it's surrounded by a green screen - so the rest of the bridge is superimposed for photo ops).

The star attraction in this venue is the bridge from The Next Generation - complete with Picard mannequin and clips from this year's Star Trek playing on the viewscreen. It's pretty cool to walk around the bridge - although it was a lot more brightly lit on the actual show (photogs beware).

But to a geek like me, the props are worth the price of admission.
