What if I wish every copy of The Goonies, from the original negative to the scripts to the DVDs to any computer that has ever been used to watch a clip of the movie on Youtube were all rounded up and burned so no one would ever inflict a second of the movie on the world ever again?

Are you saying you didn't like the original? I thought I was the only one. Once I was chased into an old windmill by the townspeople with pitchforks and torches for saying I hated the original.

I never saw it as a kid, so therefore, I don't get the love for the movie. It looks kind of dumb.

Well I did see it as a kid and hated it then so it's not an age thing.


When asked which original cast members would be coming back for Goonies 2, Donner replied, "Hopefully all of them."

Aside from Josh Brolin, I don't think it will be too hard convincing the original cast to come back. Assuming you can find them.

I was a kid when the Goonies came out.  I enjoyed it, it was fun.  That being said, not EVERYTHING needs a sequel.  Seriously, we don't need another Goonies.  Not a sequel, not a reboot, just leave it alone.

Yeah, it was a perfectly good adventure film.  It didn't leave anything unresolved, and it doesn't need a sequel.

It's like the people clamoring for a "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" sequel.  Don't mess with perfection.

Mugato: Are you saying you didn't like the original? I thought I was the only one. Once I was chased into an old windmill by the townspeople with pitchforks and torches for saying I hated the original.


It's main value is in nostalgia. It is  so very much a kid's movie. It was made with a strong sense of fun, is excellently directed, but isn't exactly compelling cinema. So much of the film depends on unlikely coincidences and fridge logic, and then it further gets saddled with some seriously bad ethnic stereotypes and other 80s humor that hasn't held up.

It's not so much that it's a  bad film, as much as it's just another one of those movies that's meant to keep kids sitting around quietly for 2 hours and does a good job at it.

This ... However, I have 3 young kids that love this movie now. This allows me to put the glasses back on and relive it as a child would, which makes it a really fun movie again.

You know how when you're channel surfing, and certain movies come on that you just have to stop and watch?
For me, that would be Shawshank Redemption and Goodfellas.

For my wife, it's The Goonies.

Sigh.....  Thank FSM for laptops and headphones.

The original is a great kids movie.  I wish they made more movies like it.

That being said - there is no need for a sequel.  Just make a new movie.

Absent the stereotypes and cheesy 80's call-outs, it was at its heart a fun treasure hunt story.  And you're right, it was very much a kids' movie.  But that's what made it work.

You can't do it these days because they have to make movies that work on parent and kid levels simultaneously, but it was a good tale in its own right.  In the modern day, Super 8 probably came closest to the same structure - a film about kids that told the story pretty much from their point of view.

I saw it in the theater when it came out and loved it, as my friends and I were always the misfits/outcasts at school.

Watched it again recently and it's not a great film.  There's clearly a lot of el Speilbergo's childhood fantasies bleeding into the film, and he didn't apparently when when to say "enough"

That said, I'm amazed that they got away with th extended gag at the beginning involving Michelangelo's David's penis, I'd forgotten that kids used to be allowed to swear in PG-rated films and my gods, Josh Brolin was hot as hell when he was young!

Watched the Goonies many times. Originally off an old VHS recording that had missed a small portion of the beginning. I still enjoy the movie whenever I see it. Had to use more of the rose colored glass when I was rewatching "The Explorers" though.

The sequel to the Goonies has to be better than the sequels to The Never Ending Story? Right? Right?

I think on of the big mistakes in the film was the Rube Goldberg gate-opener.  It's one of the places where someone should have said" This is too much" as it lessens the impact of the booby traps and devices later on.

Lol my friends and I tried to re-watch the Explorers the other night and it was absolutely terrible.  I can't believe I liked that movie as a kid.  Goonies on the other hand, while I can see the flaws in it (acting being the biggest issue), I still absolutely love that movie for what it is.

I just hope the sequel has a teenaged girl in a short skirt, with a whole bunch of upskirt shots.  Like about 20 of them.  Or else it will never live up to the original.

As much as I love it, they just need to leave it alone.   Or at least not have it be 'Goonies the next generation' with all of the original cast members having kids and the kids going on an adventure.

It would be kinda funny if all the original cast members were still antagonizing each other like they did when they were kids, after Mikey drags them into another adventure.  To me that was the highlight of the film, the relentless obnoxiousness of the kids, and the obligatory Spielbergian sense of wonder.

PillsHere: Lol my friends and I tried to re-watch the Explorers the other night and it was absolutely terrible


Explorers is really two movies stitched together into one incoherent movie and neither of them are complete (and Joe Dante himself admits this -- the studio literally pulled the plug when it was like 80% complete, hence the unresolved ending).

The first half is an interesting coming-of-age tale where childhood/young adult adventure meets scientific curiosity (which usually turns out to be fantasy or magic science), a trope that was big in the 80s (cf. Flight of the Navigator, Back to the Future, Spacecamp, Weird Science, Real Genius, Last Starfighter, etc.), and the second half brings everything to an absolute standstill with an overlong detour into some Jim Henson rejected script with preachy undertones and slapstick nonsense that totally doesn't gel with the rest of the film.

An interesting premise, but it seriously needed a rewrite and an editor.

I hear one of the kids went on to do an art film about jewelry and hairy feet. It was really long and went on for something like nine hours and had to be broken up into three parts. Doubt anyone has seen it.

I still liked it a lot.  It was a small inspiration to change careers much later in life and get into Aerospace.

I have a poster from it that I've been meaning to frame and hang up at the office.

Also explorers is a neat opportunity to see a young Ethan Hawk and a young (and still alive) River Phoenix act together.  And that kid from all the afterschool specials.
