This wasn’t my favorite Corey Haim poster as a kid, but it’s close enough. I thought for sure I’d be able to find it in a google image search or something, which makes me even a little more upset. But this is when I liked him.
I saw all the Corey movies, watched the Two Coreys, and knew that he was a mess. I wasn’t shocked when I saw the news. I read the headline and just sighed. It was a matter of time. But it’s still a lost little piece of my childhood now.
Last night it spawned a movie list, a list of things we haven’t seen in a long time, if even at all. A list of DVDs to find or rewatch. Fun, fluffy stuff mostly:
– Dream a Little Dream
– The John Hughes Library
– Suburbia (the Richard Linklater one)
– Suburbia (the other one from 1982
– Sid & Nancy
– Neverwhere (the Neil Gaiman BBC mini-series which has gone missing from my collection)
– Repo Man
– Lost Boys 2 (destined to be a disappointment, but still necessary)
Totally random, but good stuff nonetheless. I can’t say I’m sad to see him go because it’s not like he’s been actively in things that I’ve been watching. I’m just kinda sad.
