The Goonies has pretty much been my favorite childhood movie since I was 5 and my older sister let me watch it with her.

I thought I heard rumors of a Goonies 2 surfacing about a year ago...

I remember hearing this too. I did a quick and brief search and found that it is apparently under development with the working title of "Goonies II: Never Say Die". I couldn't find a whole lot of information about it, so I doubt that if this movie is made we will see it anytime soon.

Anyone remember this gem, the Goonies 2 video game for NES?

That NES game was fun.  There was a little old man trapped in one of the mines and my sister and I would torture him by whacking him on the head with the hammer.  He kept saying "Ouch!"

Doesn't matter how many times I see this movie, it never gets old.  I can't believe it's over 20 years old now.   :-\

I think that was Goonies II for the NES. A very fun game and a solid storyline. It was one of the first epic games I played that required weeks of constant play, without chats to beat. I also remember that was one of better NES games because the musical score was varied and catchy.

I remember being in the 4th or 5th grade and standing on the lunch line. This girl behind me was saying that her cousin in CA had seen Gonnies II, the movie, and it was fantastic. I remember turning around and being all happy and asking her when it was coming to NY? She said it was only released in CA. That was a sad thing to hear at the time but after a few weeks I tended not to believe her anyway.

I was just reading this article over at WIZARD about an upcoming comic miniseries called "The Search for Sloth".  It apparently takes place shortly after the movie (although in current times I believe), with the characters slightly older than in the movie.  I'm kind of interested to pick it up.  Goonies was (and is) one of my favorite movies growing up, and I remember hearing as a kid (primarily when the NES game was out) that a sequel was supposed to be on the way.  This is probably as close as we'll get.

I remember the video game, it was great. I hope with the figures coming out that Nintendo will make it available on the virtual console for the wii.

Ahhhh the Goonies. I had such a thing for Martha Plympton.

They don't make movies like that anymore.

Here's a pic of the cast (and director Richard Donner) taken when they recorded the commentary for the DVD a couple years ago:



Fun movie.

Goonies cast ca. 2001



Goonies cast ca. 2009 (along with some other dudes)

I'll tell ya, the blonde...  Not bad.  She was a pretty homely actress IMO, when she was doing these movies (Parenthood is the only other one I immediately can place her in)...  But she got better as she aged if I may say...  Very nice.

Wheres Sloth in that mix?

EDIT:

OK, Sloth's dead so that answers that...  And the blonde's pics on IMDB debunk my theory, somewhat.  She's a mxied bag of good and bad pictures.  Still, those couple pics look ok I thought.

Sloth dead?  Bummer.

Sloth's been dead for twenty years, but he will live on in our hearts forever.
