I'm watching St. Elmo's fire (SEF) right now on Vh1 classic and was reliving a little nostalgia when I did a "cast and crew" check on the actors to see how old they were now. Turns out that just about all of them turned 50 within the last year. Fifty! OMG. I was in high school when that movie came out so I'm not quite there but, hell, is it all over? I can't believe we (the X generation) are becoming elderly people already. I'm not ready. Is this really happening or are things different today? Is 50 the new 40, or even 30? Please tell me yes. Also, I loved SEF and all of the other teen movies of the 80's. The only hiccup with SEF I thought, though, was Emilio's fanatic infatuation with Adie, who I think is a dog, really. That subplot to the movie I didn't find convincing and I think detracts from an otherwise great 80's timepiece. How about your thoughts?
