I had actually completely forgotten about Joe Dante’s EXPLORERS until just this moment, but it all came flooding back immediately. The 1985 coming-of-age sci-fi film starred Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson as three young teenagers who came together to build a spaceship after one of them had recurring dreams about a blueprint of some kind. The film eventually gathered a cult following but was considered a box-office flop as Paramount Pictures forced Dante to finish the film before he was ready. Read More here

After getting his start on the Little House on the Prairie television show at the age of 11, Jason Bateman has found consistent work over the past nearly-four decades. Today, he is a household name. He is largely known for his comedy performances — especially that as the ostensibly central character of the cult ensemble sitcom Arrested Development. He toes that critical line for a comedic actor between handsome and goofy. He is often the stooge — the rational character in a comedy who responds to the zany ones. However, even in his broader comedic roles — like color commentator Pepper Brooks in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story — he plays deadpan. It gives him a unique style. Aside from his massive success in the comedy genre, he has tried his hand in drama and horror too — and has taken a few turns behind the camera as director and has found success in them all. His popularity is well-earned. Here are his 10 best roles so far. Read More here
