St. Elmo’s Fire

Watching this again made me miss the brat pack so damn much. It sucks that we didn’t get more movies during┬áthat era that featured pretty much all of them — there are a lot of movies with a couple of members, but this and Breakfast Club are pretty much the only ones with so many. But yeah, this movie is as 80s as it gets, and the soundtrack too — and I’ll admit that I still get a kick out of that John Parr track. I can’t objectively say if it’s a good movie or not, but I certainly like watching it.
