Re: Will There EVER Be Another Goonies or Monster Squad?

good post UD, well said. my wife son and i really enjoyed real steal as well. I dont think it got a fair shake at the box office they screwed it the way they advertised it.

Re: Will There EVER Be Another Goonies or Monster Squad?

Don't forget these movies that we grew up when I and other 80s childs were teens in the 1990s along with some late 80s early 1990s stuff that we grew up watching.

Star Kid
Explorers
Mom and Dad Save the World
Stay Tuned
Waxwork
E.T.
Monster Squad
Dirt Bike Kid
A Christmas Story- no matter how hard Hollywood tries. There will never be a christmas movie for boys like Christas Story
Lost Boys
Odd Jobs
Little Monsters
Space Hunter - molly ringwald, ernie hudson, etc

Hey what about The Last Star Fighter!

Re: Will There EVER Be Another Goonies or Monster Squad?

Or Cloak and Dagger.

^Dabney coleman was the man!

Re: Will There EVER Be Another Goonies or Monster Squad?

Yeah I forgot about Last Starfighter along with Cloak and Dagger. 

Also Wargames LOL

all of the movies that I grew up watching in the 1980s and the 1990s stuff like Mom and Dad Save the World, you dont see movies like those anymore.

Nowadays its the first person view found lost footage type movies and remakes and torture porn stuff.

Super 8 is probably the only movie that us older 1980s childs like since it brings back memories.

I'd like to see Hollywood today try to make a family sci fi comedy like Mom and Dad Save the World.  Good luck hollywood tryting to top that.

And its been 10-14 years since I saw Mom and Dad Save the World along with Stay Tuned and Star Kid.

Super-8 is the winner.

Re: Will There EVER Be Another Goonies or Monster Squad?

Yea Super 8 came real close to giving me that Goonies feel this last time I watched it.  Really the only movie I can think of that has come out in the last 20 years that really tries and almost succeeds and duplicating the feel that E.T. and Close Encounters had.

Super 8, Cabin in the Woods, Prometheus, and Scream 4.  Super 8 being my least favorite of the bunch, but at least we are starting to get some good Horror movies that actually pay great homage to films that came out before. 

I remember that thread about "what is the next trend in horror" and it appears to be clearly that Mainstream horror is not only remaking, but are also starting to re-create with an original twist, and doing a pretty darn good job of it. 

Back on topic though...

If you are in the mood for a great children's adventure, please watch EXPLORERS!

Lost Boys, Monstersquad and Fright Night seem to be the best of the bunch as far as Childrens adventure horror.  Explorers isn't really horror though it is directed by Joe Dante and there are a few horror elements.

Stuff being mentioned like Wargames of course isn't horror and falls more under the 80s teen category.  We could list great 80s movies for days and days.

Little Monsters comes to mind.  I haven't seen that in such a long time I wonder if it is worth a rent.

I'm sure a lot of people here used to watch Are You Afraid of the Dark.  I've seen a ton of horror anthologies over the years and Are You Afraid of the Dark actually holds up against some of the best...
