The Goonies, a movie well-known to those who grew up in the 80’s or are just into 80’s nostalgia. It’s one of the great movies from the past, such as: The Breakfast Club, Back To the Future, Beverly Hills Cop, Fast Times in Ridgemont High, Revenge of the Nerds etc. Its aged well and you can watch it with the same enjoyment as you did in the past. As it’s still able to bring out your inner childhood and for those who haven’t seen this movie I would highly recommend you watch this as soon as you have a chance.
Its directed by Steven Spielberg and comes with an all-star cast such as Sean Austin and Corey Feldman. For those who don’t know its an adventure/comedy film where a couple of kids stumble upon an old pirate treasure map that was stored away in the attic and decide to go look for the gold. Yes it sounds cheesy, but its full of surprises trust me. The main cast runs into all sorts of trouble along the way and each of them have a unique personality to keep you entertained. In the end they find the treasure and it’s a happy ending like most movies, but it doesn’t leave any room for a sequel. The Goonies was loved so much that a sequel was being demanded by the fans. So where is it?
There was a Goonies 2, but for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Which was only released in Japan. It was garbage and had a terrible story. But it kept many of us wondering when will we ever see Goonies 2 come to the big screen. Rumors surfaced and back in 2008 I believe and it was announced that the sequel was a go. Then in early 2012 the production was on hold because the director didn’t want it to go straight to DVD. Movies companies were afraid that it wasn’t going to make millions…like crappy movies like Twilight. But since then, I haven’t heard anything. So I’m assuming it’s not happening….?
Maybe Hollywood is keeping the us in the dark and will surprise us with a teaser trailer. But I’m crossing my fingers and hoping one day we’ll see the Goonies reunite. There have been other sequels, some good and bad for other 80’s movies. Like Tron 2, Lost Boys 2, and other rumoured sequels might be on the way. Hell, Bill and Ted might be coming back! It seems everything is coming back. It’s scary because Hollywood could ruin it, but sometimes it’s nice to take that chance and see some old movies return. So, I’m still waiting…Where is Goonies sequal!!
