Review The Lost Boys

You remember the 80s, right? Big hair, neon colors, and vampires. Lots of vampires. If you grew up in that era, chances are you were obsessed with The Lost Boys. This cult classic starring Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric as rival vampires in a small beach town has endured for good reason. It has everything an 80s teen could want: rebellious youth, creepy villains, cheesy humor, and of course, a kickass soundtrack.

Watching it now, the fashion and special effects are delightfully dated, but the story of two brothers who move to a new town and stumble upon a sinister secret still holds up. There's a nostalgic charm to its campiness. The Lost Boys is a perfect time capsule of 80s teen culture and a thoroughly entertaining vampire film with a fun, youthful spirit.

Remember the Sega Dreamcast? It's hard to believe it's been over 20 years since that little white box of wonder came into our lives. For a brief, shining moment, the Dreamcast gave us a glimpse into the future of gaming. It was the first console with a built-in modem for online play, and it packed a lot of power under the hood for its time. Crazy Taxi, Soul Calibur, Shenmue—the Dreamcast had some all-time classics. Sure, PlayStation 2 came along and crushed Sega's dreams not long after. But for a few years there, Dreamcast was king. It brought arcade-perfect ports into our living rooms, let us play online before most of us even had broadband, and showed us what true next-gen gaming could be. Dreamcast, we hardly knew ye. But we're sure glad you stopped by.

You remember the first time you booted up that iconic black disk and heard the opening notes of "One-Winged Angel." Final Fantasy VII was a revelation. After years of 16-bit sprites, here was a game that transported you to a fully 3D world with visuals unlike anything you'd seen before. The sprawling cyberpunk city of Midgar, the lush fields outside Kalm, the mysteries of the Ancient Forest—every location was bursting with detail. And the story—an eco-terrorist fighting against a sinister corporation sucking the life out of the planet—was darker and more complex than any RPG you'd played. Over 20 years later, Final Fantasy VII remains a high point of cinematic storytelling in games with a sense of place and atmosphere that's still rarely achieved. Strap in, because we're heading back to Midgar for a retrospective on this iconic classic. The planet's dying, but the memories will live on forever.
