Loved the dumping on St. Elmo’s Fire. I hated Rob Lowe in that film myself.
It’s a terrible film. It’s not just Rob Lowe, he’s exceptionally obnoxious in the film but pretty much every character is obnoxious and unlikable. I had never seen the film until the late 90’s. I always thought it was a John Hughes film because of the cast. I went in thinking it was gonna be good.
They really get very emotional over some films they hate. And yes, St. Elmo’s Fire was incredibly offensive. Worst of all, there wasn’t a single character that was even remotely likable. John Hughes would never make a movie like this, because all the young characters in his films are 3-dimensional, likable, and very smart.
It’s a shame that John Hughes will later make family friendly comedies after Home Alone.
Agreed, Home Alone sucks.
I just watched St Elmo’s Fire a few weeks ago and you and Siskel and Ebert are right on the money. This is one of the most mean spirited pieces of crap I have ever watched. Sure, we’re all flawed people, but nobody acts like this. And if they did, then they don’t deserve to live.
Sorry if I repeat the same comments. But I actually wrote it once.

Shame, I quite like St. Elmo’s Fire as a guilty pleasure.
R.I.P. Joel Schumacher (29 August 1939 – 22 June 2020)
Gene did eventually like a Joel Schumacher picture-Batman Forever ten years later. But I don’t think he ever liked the guy’s work mostly.
Gene liked anything having to do with Batman. He was a big fan. I heard stories of him dressing up as Batman when he was in College and running around the Yale campus.
