The 2 Coreys - not as linked as one would think

I read this morning about the untimely death of Corey Haim and realized I'm fairly certain I've never seen a Corey Haim film. I ran down his filmography and don't think I've seen a single one. (I have added "The Lost Boys" to my Netflix list, along with a million other people.)

However, I've somehow managed to see five Corey Feldman films that don't include Corey Haim. I'd always thought of the two (in the few moments of my life that I've thought about the two) as being a team, as forwarded by things like the reality show "The Two Coreys," but apparently not. Given that Feldman was in hits like "The Goonies," "Stand By Me," "Gremlins" and the fourth and fifth "Friday the 13th" movies, I think I'm also going to have to give Feldman the nod for the more successful career.
