If these were actual stamps, it might make a trip to the post office bearable.
Say the word “Amblin” to film fans and instantly they will get a picture in their heads. It’s a picture from the 1980s, of kids, fantasy, wonder, aliens, and more—the tone Stranger Things recently aimed to capture. Now take that feeling and put it in a single room. That’s what you get at Amblin 35.
As director of the first two Harry Potter films, Chris Columbus helped create everything people love about the iconic franchise. Now, as he gets ready to release his new movie Pixels, the writer of The Goonies and Gremlins once again has an idea for everyone’s favorite boy wizard.
We are living in an age where everyone wants to be The Goonies. Why? Because Goonies is the best goddamn movie ever made (probably). Even if it isn't the best movie ever made, Hollywood certainly loves referencing it, along with all the other nostalgic Amblin movies of their youth. And it's probably time to stop.
The Goonies will turn 30 years old in 2015 and builder Lyonsblood is ready for his recreation of One-Eyed Willy's ship, The Inferno, to make it to the decision phase of the Lego Ideas process. I have no doubts that it will be put over the 10,000 supporter threshold in the coming week.
If the sequel to the 1985…
The influence of classic Spielberg movies is all over Earth to Echo. The plot is lifted from E.T., but the movie also borrows heavily from Goonies and other 80s movies about kids hanging out. But stylistically, this movie borrows nothing. In fact, it shows how to conjure the "80s kid movie" vibe without wallowing in…
It's been a long time since someone mentioned the possibility of Goonies 2, but original director Richard Donner told TMZ it's still moving forward. Last we heard, it will feature the original cast as adults with their own kids who — and I'm going out on a limb here — might get into their own adventure.
Everybody wants to recapture the glory days of 80s movies these days. Everywhere you look, they're remaking 80s classics or paying homage to the motifs of the Reagan era. But there's still something about the 80s that remains unique and special. Here are 10 things movies were good at in the 80s that they struggle at…
Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Star Wars, and more get remade as those sweet Little Golden Books, with smiling children's book illustrations and foil spines. Introduce kids to the wonders of chemistry and organized crime at an early age.
As far as iconic '80s kids movies go, it doesn't get much better than The Goonies. In just 2 years, this pop-cultural phenomenon will turn 30! So, let's honor Chunk, Sloth, Mikey, Data and Mouth with the ultimate tribute...an official Lego Goonies set.
The classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are being totally reinvented for a new animated series... but in a good way. Yesterday at Comic Con, we got a chance to see a panel featuring series executive producer Ciro Nieli (Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go!), who explained how he is taking the best of previous…
This has been a big year for Steven Spielberg — he's launched two TV shows, including last night's Terra Nova, and produced countless movies. The Spielberg tribute Super-8 was a surprise hit, and it's become fashionable for other film-makers to claim they're paying tribute to early Spielberg. Still ahead this year:…
We're completely enchanted by this disturbingly violent yet completely charming trailer for The Goon, a computer animated adaptation of Eric Powell's book, from producer David Fincher.
I had no idea his name was Dick Wang. Here's an interesting story.
