"Jules, you know, honey...this isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge."
-Billy (Rob Lowe) from St. Elmo's Fire, which turned 25 years old this week.
First, I own this movie on DVD, even though it comes on cable about once a month. Second, Rob Lowe with a dangly earring. Third, Emilio Estevez is the only male cast member NOT working the "I'm so intense" gaze thing. Finally, I only watch it for the last half hour when everything falls apart and Demi Moore has a breakdown in her empty apartment - one of the top greatest movie scenes of all time.
