Hey Chloe,

I watched a show recently- I can't remember exactly what it was called but it was something like Celebrity Autopsy and it gives you a good account of what happened in the time leading up to his death. It's worth watching.

Man, what the hell were they thinking with the second half of Explorers? Such a let down.

You know the stories, right? Dante wanted to make something totally different to the script, so they didn't really have an ending; studio moved up the release date so he had to just 'end' the movie and work with what he had; studio released it the weekend of Live Aid and it tanked.

Personally, I think the whole comedy-alien concept was flawed from the start, and that more time might have made a better, tighter film, but it would always have a flawed third act. Knowing what he cut makes it even worse.

He sees it as a work print and not a finished film.
