Photograph[edit]

Would it not be nice to have a more recent photograph on this page? S.D.Rycroft 14:15, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

If you can find a more recent photo that is licensed under the GFDL or one of the acceptable CC licenses, by all means add it. —Chowbok 15:34, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Number of films[edit]

It states at the top that Feldman has appeared in over 100 films, yet there are way less than 100 listed here.

It also states that he appeared in 15 #1 movies in a row, and there is no way 15 of his movies were #1 hits; maybe four of them at most (Gremlins, Goonies, Stand By Me and Lost Boys were popular) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.105.12.150 (talk) 06:44, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Not all an actor's work is listed in their biography; IMDb gives a longer list. Jim Michael (talk) 15:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Divorce from Vanessa Marcil - 1991 or 1993 ?[edit]

The page states that he divorced Vanessa Marcil in 1993, but in the infobox on the right side it says they divorced in 1991. Find the correct answer and fix it, please. 24.81.130.107 14:07, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Home[edit]

Where does Corey Feldman and his wife live? I was also under the impression that he lived in the Los Angeles but apparently he doesn't I've been told they live in Vancouver, Canada and should this be included in the article.

Considering that he is getting, or has gotten a divorce, I assume that this is a moot point now. That being said, I assume that since he is still acting and otherwise involved in the industry, that it would not be a big surprise that he resides part-time in L.A. & also in Vancouver, CA. Vancouver has been called "Hollywood North" and he has involved in such productions as Lost Boys: The Tribe which was shot in Vancouver. Centerone (talk) 12:30, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Maverick?[edit]

it says he was in maverick, ive seen maverick and have never noticed him in it, and i checked mavericks wiki page na dhe isnt mentioned, what was his role? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.228.223.227 (talk) 04:10, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Corey Feldman had low billing in Maverick (1994). He played a bank robber.Kea2 (talk) 19:23, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Divorcing Susie?[edit]

I searched and can find no evidence of this. The source you provided warns me it is a hack site. Find a better source and post again. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rodandjoyce (talkcontribs) 06:02, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

There is evidence/information on TMZ and lots of other gossip/tabloid-like websites (people, the hollywood gossip, etc.), but of course it's not usually viewed as a 'reliable source' that being said, it does make reference to divorce papers being filed in L.A. Is the NY Daily News reliable enough as a citation/source? http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2009/10/28/2009-10-28_corey_feldmans_wife_susannah_feldman_files_for_divorce.html Centerone (talk) 15:51, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
Has the divorce been finalised? Jim Michael (talk) 15:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Michael Jackson[edit]

Why there are not any reference to his relationship with Michael Jackson? Come on, Corey even dressed for a long time in a Michael-Jackson-Fashion like. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.134.69.125 (talk) 17:21, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

this is absurd, "He then went on to star in 15 #1 movies in a row, each of them grossing over $50 million at the box office.[citation needed]" isn't somebody going to remove this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.103.228.21 (talk) 20:44, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Seriously, the article is full of unverified puffery, and makes scant mention of any faults that Mr. Feldman may have. This article paints him as a humanitarian who is apparently the most successful movie star of our time? I don't know Wikipedia well enough to flag this things, but if someone does. . . Please.

I've gone through the article and done some clean-up, tagging and removal of long-unsourced info. If you have specific recommendations I'd be happy to review them and make additional changes. Also please note that you should always sign comments by adding four tildes (~) to the end. Cheers. Doniago (talk) 14:35, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Adding information about a red carpet movie premiere[edit]

In the past few days, I have had information regarding Corey Feldman's movie premiere of Operation Belvis Bash taken off by several people for several different reasons. The original reason was that there wasn't a citation for reference. I fixed that. Other reasons were nitpicking the relevancy and noteworthiness of the information. I do believe that a red carpet World Premiere, outside of California, holds a certain gravitas and is notable enough to be included on his page.

Is this information less notable than Corey Feldman making a cameo in a music video or the name of two projects that he was working on in 2008? I hardly see any evidence of that. I could understand if I had put that Corey Feldman was spotted at a grocery store in a small town in Montana. That would not be notable.

How is this information any different than the blurb about Terror Inside being released? It is not. So why is that allowed to stay and my addition is deleted? I find both facts to be interesting and notable. What exactly is the difference between the two? Absolutely nothing. I feel that my addition is just as relevant and notable as any of the other facts that appear in the 2000s section.

On January 13, 2011, Feldman attended the red carpet World Premiere of his film Operation Belvis Bash at the Hollywood Palms Cinema, Bar & Eatery, in Naperville, Illinois.[1]

  1. The source is the venue at which the event was supposed to have occurred. It is not a reliable source.
  2. Even if there were (entertainment) news coverage of the event, it still wouldn't be notable, although there I might be willing to accept some version of it in the article about the film, not this article. (The release of a film should be verifiable, unless the film is so non-notable that no reliable source cares. Who is at the premier is not.) — Arthur Rubin (talk) 22:08, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

The point of my addition is the movie itself. In a previous blurb, it was mentioned that work was being done on the movie in 2008, albeit under a slightly different name. My addition expands on that blurb, verifying that the movie finally got a screening, it was important enough for Corey Feldman to attend and the premiere was in a location that one would not necessarily associate a movie premiere to be held. These facts make the addition noteworthy.

Opinion is something that does not need to be used as a criteria for removing content. It is my opinion that some of the other information on the page isn't notable enough for inclusion, but that doesn't mean that it is not notable for others. I wouldn't delete any information that I don't find notable. I would only delete information if it is untrue or wildly opinionated.

As for the citation, it is a moot point, since the website of the location of the event is deemed not reliable, and any news coverage of the event had already been shot down by you.

I have already spent too much time defending my actions from people I have never and will never meet. It seems silly in the grand scheme of things. - FMercury39 22:38, 17 January 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by FMercury39 (talkcontribs)

Hi. I'm just going to repost what I did at my talk page (minus the numerous typos I now see). In my last edit summary I tried to prompt you to focus on creating content for the movie, which is likely notable but apparently has no article, instead of insisting on the sentence about his attendance at one invent. How many movie premieres do you think Feldman has attended? Should we include them all? My suggestion was to include a sentence about him starring in a new film, or producing it, or whatever he did. Does that not make much more sense? If you could find a decent source for the film I'm sure we would all welcome the inclusion. Beach drifter (talk) 04:26, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Michael Jackson section[edit]

The section on Michael Jackson's influence on Feldman's life, and their relation, seems clearly too scanty to warrant inclusion in the article. Especially with the article making no mention of Feldman's widely publicized accusations against unnamed Hollywood power brokers for having sexually abused himself and other children, this section in its entirety to me constitutes undue weight and should be simply removed. __meco (talk) 07:05, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Regarding the "widely publicized" accusations, if reliable sources are available, I'd opt for adding that information to balance out the section rather than removing the sourced information that's currently in the article. Doniago (talk) 13:01, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
