2Corey Feldman Is Down For A Goonies Sequel

And according to Corey, he’s not the only one – he says that the original cast and even writer/producer Steven Spielberg want to continue on with the epic adventures of the Goonies. The thing is, the studio’s a little hesitant:

“They treasure this film, as you know – it is literally their greatest family film title of all time,” he says. “That’s the way they see it. It’s always on the top 25, all DVD sales around the world all the time. If we go and throw a sequel out there that’s lesser [in quality], then suddenly we may hurt this continuous cash cow.”

I feel like a lot of what Corey Feldman says nowadays is nonsense, but if he’s telling the truth about Spielberg being open to a sequel, that sounds like it may be a little legit.  I mean, the guy got that shitty fourth Indiana Jones movie made, I think he could talk people into a little ol’ Goonies sequel.  I’m not saying it would be right – it would probably be pretty tragic, especially since Chunk is now the most attractive cast member – I’m just saying it’s possible.

Another possibility?  A Broadway musical based on the original film.  Let’s take that road, everyone involved with The Goonies. That’s the kind of growth that’s acceptable.

Goonies never say die, you guys.  Trust.

3Love It or Leave It: Harry Potter Edition!

Deathly Hallows is so, so close, you guys.  In a week’s time, you can mosey on down to your local movie theatre, crowd in to a dark room with a number of other nerds, and have such a magical experience.  You can laugh during the Seven Potters bit, you can cry during, well, nearly every other part, and you can curse the world when the movie ends halfway through the story.  Wondrous times are sure to be had by all.

The world premiere of the movie happened yesterday in London, and the cast celebrated this glorious occasion by being beautiful. Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint look fresh to death in their suits, and I can’t get over how amazing Emma Watson looks, even though it really shouldn’t be a shock at this point. If you check out the gallery, you can see Helena Bonham Carter looking like her crazy self, Ralph Fiennes showing remnants of Lord Voldemort and therefore making me feel a little weird for finding him attractive, more shots of Emma looking fierce as hell, and J.K. Rowling herself.  You can also play a little game called Spot The Inappropriately Placed Death Eater!

1Check Out Robert Downey, Jr.’s Latest Role!

It’s Mr. Peanut.  Robert Downey, Jr. is Mr. Peanut.  Could you just die?

I’m starting to think that RDJ can’t do anything wrong.  Well, ok, there was that one stretch with the drugs and the jail and all, but no bother.  He is beautiful and talented, he was in a movie with my very favorite, Zach Galifianakis (you guys have already seen Due Date, right?  Go ahead and tend to that if you haven’t), and now he’s Mr. Peanut.  And really, who could ask for anything more?

Oh, and by the way, does the Nutcracker’s voice seem a little familiar to you?  Yeah, that’s Val Kilmer.  I think the peanut industry is shooting for some Oscars with this one.

10Eminem’s Only Read One Book – Can You Guess Which One?

Even though Eminem is known for his impressive word usage in his songs, he’s not much of a reader.  In fact, he’s only ever read one book from cover to cover.  Was it one of the Twilight or Harry Potter books?  Perhaps Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle? Maybe some book he read back in school, like Flowers for Algernon or Where the Red Fern Grows?  Perhaps …

1NKOTB and BSB: “One Big Massive Uber-Group”

Remember that one time back in June when New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys performed together at Radio City Music Hall and it was wonderful and I was all “I sense a tour a-comin’”?  Well, I was right, natch.  The groups are joining forces to totally blow our minds come next summer, but in the meantime, check out that above interview with Ryan Seacrest.  To be honest, I’m not really interested in what’s being said because I’m too busy trying to wrap my mind around all nine dudes* sitting around together, being older versions of those dudes whose pictures I tore out of Tiger Beat.

I’m crossing my fingers for a Nashville date, but I’m probably just going to have to count on y’all guys in the big cities to sneak in a fancy camera phone.  Don’t let me down.

*Too bad the fifth Backstreet Boy (my very favorite), Kevin Richardson, is busy starring in low budget vampire musicals.

4Quotables: Charlie Sheen Thinks Everyone Needs to Settle Down

A photo of Charlie Sheen

“If a guy has one bad night, everybody goes insane and panics.”

- Charlie Sheen being all “whatever.”

In case you missed it, that “one bad night” Charlie’s referring to is that night that he wrecked a hotel room after getting wasted with a hooker.  He’s not talking about that night that he celebrated Christmas by pulling a knife on his wife or that night that he had to make an apology when a voicemail leaked in which he called his wife the c-word and the n-word or those nights that he accidentally shot Kelly Preston in the arm, nearly overdosed, or got arrested for beating up his girlfriend.  No, this is about the hotel room and the hooker, and that was just like one time.  Lighten up, everybody!  Charlie’s got this!
