Do `80s movies multiply when you get them wet?
It looks like Goonies rumors never say die. Goonies director Richard Donner has been vocal about a sequel lately, and it looks like he might not have been just playing with our emotions. Now there are rumors that Chris Columbus, who wrote both The Goonies and Gremlins, is on board to produce sequels to both of the `80s classics.Read More

Jon Marco has insured people will listen to his song "Rhianna." How? He put together a music video for it starring himself in classic 80s films like Back to the Future, The Goonies, Teen Wolf, and more.

First the Hobbit trailer got mashed up with Adventure Time. Now it's The Goonies, courtesy of YouTube user Lance Ford. Sloth used to be Gothmog from The Lord of the Rings, and now he's Gollum, too! Pretty cool. If we're going to get more Hobbit trailer mashups, can I nominate Labyrinth? Or The Princess Bride. Give me all the '80s nostalgia, basically.

Next month, LA's Gallery 1988 will be putting on an art show called the 3G Show. But tributes to the third generation of mobile cellular phone standards need not apply: Rather, the three G's are Ghostbusters, Goonies, and Gremlins. Brilliant.
Heroic pixel artist Jude Buffum is entering his imaginings of the three G's as 8-bit games. Hit the jump for his takes on Goonies and Gremlins:Read More
Artist and funny guy Brian McLachlan wished that cult movies like Mad Max, Red Dawn, and Goonies had gotten their days in the comic book sun, untainted by "staff writers with no love for the characters." So he made it happen -- well, the covers, at least -- having lots of fun with classic comic book styles in the process.
