‘Goonies’ TV Series Will Follow Kids Creating a Shot-For-Shot Remake of the ’80s Adventure Film

Here’s an idea that is sure to appeal to people in their late-30s/early-4os: A Goonies TV series! But wait, there’s a catch. This isn’t going to be a TV adaptation of the Richard Donner movie where a group of children screams for two full hours while dealing with skeletons. Oh, no. Instead, this show is about a teacher who helps her students create a shot-for-shot remake of The Goonies. And of course, lessons will be learned and friendships will be formed, and so on. Look, I know lots of peo...

Halloween mask of Sloth from The Goonies deemed inaccurate

Trumpetcake spotted a remarkable item on Amazon being sold as "The Goonies Sloth Mask", perfect for Halloween. The sole customer review awards it 5 stars, but people on Twitter seem unimpressed with its versimilitude. P.S. You can buy Babe Ruth bars on Amazon by the crate.

Cool Stuff: ‘The Goonies’ Score By Dave Grusin is Now Available on Vinyl

The Goonies has become one of the most beloved movies of the 1980s. It’s the kind of adventure movie that studios don’t really make for kids anymore, and now you can own the score that brings life to the film from producer Steven Spielberg and director Richard Donner.

There's a Hawaiian shirt of Chunk doing the "Truffle Shuffle"

I came across the strangest Aloha shirt on Instagram the other day, one called the "Hawaiian Shuffle" ($55). It depicts Chunk of The Goonies, amongst the shirt's tropical foliage, doing his "Truffle Shuffle." Two things: 1. I'm 99.9% sure this is an unlicensed Goonies product, which means child-actor-turned-entertainment-lawyer Jeff Cohen (aka Chunk) won't see a dime from its sales (maybe I'm wrong!); 2. A 2015 UPROXX article describes how the film's director Richard Donner felt about that sc...

Does ‘Jurassic Park’ Have ‘The Goonies’ Wardrobe Easter Eggs Hidden in Plain Sight?

It’s been 24 years since Jurassic Park hit theaters, and while the movie has been examined in-depth over and over again plenty of times since then, it appears one possible Easter egg may have gone unnoticed until now. In Jurassic Park, Seinfeld star Wayne Knight plays the sneaky, weasel of a Jurassic Park employee named Dennis Nedry who is being paid millions to steal dinosaur embryos so an unknown competitor could create their own dinosaurs. It turns out that in addition to concealing dinosaur...

‘The Goonies 2’ Will Still “Likely” Happen, But in What Form?

The Goonies actor Sean Astin is back in the public eye with his turn as the delightfully normcore Bob Newby in Stranger Things 2, and while he was making the press rounds to promote the show, the inevitable happened: someone asked him about the possibility of The Goonies 2. But instead of shrugging it off, Astin seemed hopeful about the odds of the long-discussed sequel coming to fruition. But would it happen as a live-action movie, or something else entirely? Speaking with The Huffington Po...

Chunk is the coolest kid ever

The Goonies' Chunk, performed by Jeff Cohen, is so wonderful. I can not stop laughing when he spills his guts! My 10-year-old and I enjoyed The Goonies last night, it really holds up. Corey Feldmans' Mouth is also a delight. His Spanish translations are a masterpiece.

POTD: Josh Brolin Dressed As His Character in ‘The Goonies’ For a 1980s Party

Today, Josh Brolin is an Oscar-nominated actor who is playing, not one, but two major comic book characters in the upcoming sequels Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War. But way back in 1985, Josh Brolin was just a nobody getting his big break as Brandon “Brand” Walsh in the classic adventure movie The Goonies. And he recently paid tribute to his early career in a surprising way. Josh Brolin took to Instagram a couple days ago with a picture of him decked out in costume for a 1980s party being...

When people hear you are from Oregon

Photo: Artem Popov 1. “Oregon? Where’s that?” To the Spanish man on the train, the Thai guesthouse owner, and the friendly Australian I met in a New York City bar who thought Oregon was a province in Canada, the answer remains the same: It’s the state right above California. 2. “Seattle’s the capital, right?” Whether you mean it as a subtle dig at our “sibling rivalry” with Washington, or you’re just misinformed, Seattle is neither the capital of Oregon or Washington. After all, who needs S...

Earth to Echo movie review

Movie Title:  Earth To Echo PG, 1 hour 29 minutes Now on DVD Grade:  C In a Nutshell:  This tween flick feels like an attempt at remaking E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial or even Super 8with The Goonies (1985) , but not as magical and charming as any of those.  Relativity producers could learn a lesson from Spielberg.  Even the ad imitates the beloved E.T. movie poster. The film takes some misfit kids on a scavenger hunt to help an extraterrestrial find the pieces he needs to rebuild his spaceship an...
