goonies tv series

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.

The Goonies Score 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.

Ready Player One posters

The end of this month will see the release of the anticipated adaptation of Ready Player One. The novel from Ernest Cline is coming to the big screen courtesy of director Steven Spielberg, who seems like the only director who could pull off a pop culture mash-up of this scale – especially with all of its key references to some of the most iconic blockbusters ever made.

Now a new set of Ready Player One posters ups the ante when it comes to mashing up nostalgic movies from decades past. Each of the posters takes the film’s digital characters and places them on the poster of a beloved movie from the past. Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club, Beetlejuice, Blade Runner, The Goonies, Risky Business, and more posters were fully recreated with Ready Player One‘s game avatar characters from The OASIS.

Jurassic Park Goonies Easter Egg

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 embryos in a faux shaving cream can, he may also be the source of a Easter egg hiding in plain sight referencing the Steven Spielberg project The Goonies.

Find out about the Jurassic Park Goonies Easter egg below. Read More »

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?
