It may be that The Goonies 'R' Good Enough for Cyndi Lauper, but could we please have some Hobbits with that as well?
Seems a guy named Lance Ford wanted to take that unexpected Journey as well, and has mashed up the trailer for "The Hobbit" with some choice cuts from 1985's best kids booby trapped pirate treasure romp.
Of course there's an extra layer of humor given that Sean Astin, he who portrayed Samwise the Brave in Peter Jackson's original "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, also starred in "Goonies" back when he didn't need CGI trickery to appear tiny. Get More »
You like "Home Alone." Heck, you may even claim to love "Home Alone."
But do you love it enough to ink a tribute to Joe Pesci into your skin, permanently?
They say that beauty is skin-deep, but there's no adage for how deep fandom goes. These 25 hardcore fans of movies from, yes, "Home Alone" to "Black Swan" proudly display their devotion on their bodies in the form of intricate ink.
Scroll on to see, and tell us in the comments how you would pay body art tribute to your favorite flick.
1. 'The Dark Knight'
Is there some 8-bit wizard out there who could make our arcade fantasies come true?
Alas, we've got a pocket full of quarters but only a handful of "What If?" game cartridges. We'd love to walk in the pixelated footsteps of Donnie Darko, get stuck in a loop on "Groundhog Day" and rule the blocky beaches of Miami with Tony Montana. And we will. In our 1-octet dreams. Get More »
Everyone loves a bad boy. The snarling mustache twirlers get all of the fame and fortune -- the No. 1 spot on movie-geek lists, the Halloween costumes, the cool quotes -- and none of them have to worry about being called a witch.
But here at NextMovie, we're all about the bad girls. We love a lady who isn't afraid to embrace her nasty side in order to get what she wants.
In honor of "Savages" and Salma Hayek's role as a brutal drug cartel leader, we've gathered up the coolest and cruelest women to grace the silver screen. We're a little worried about ranking them, because if there's one thing we know about these vicious villainesses, it's that they don't like competition. But we did. Now, you read. We'll run.

"My favorite movie is probably 'The Goonies' because of the adventure of finding One-Eyed Willy's ship and the treasure.
"When I was a kid, I had a group of friends that all believed in each other. 'The Goonies' really was my childhood; and, now that I am in a pirate film, it really has come full circle. It made me realize how lucky I am."
Sam Claflin can currently be seen in theaters as missionary Philip Swift in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
If you thought every great film had already maxed out its possibilities on home video (you know, VHS, DVD, special editon DVD, anniversary edition DVD, Blu-ray, special edition Blu-ray... and so on), well, you'd be mistaken.
This year proved another great year for high profile DVD and Blu-ray releases, and what better time to run through the 2010's highlights than during holiday shopping mania? Get More »
Asthmatic Mikey Walsh (Sean Astin) is the kid from the Goon Docks in Astoria, Oregon who finds a map to 17th-century pirate One-Eyed Willie's treasure in his attic the day before the Walsh house is to be foreclosed. Mikey and pals Mouth (Corey Feldman), Data (Ke Huy Quan) and Chunk (Jeff Cohen) set off to find the pirate's golden doubloons along with Mikey's reluctant brother, Brandon (Josh Brolin), Brandon's cheerleader girlfriend, Andy (Kerri Green), and her smart-mouthed friend, Stef (Martha Plimpton).
Together they form "The Goonies," and the only thing standing in their way is that the entrance to the subterranean tunnels that lead to the local legend is under the guard of the Fratelli family, a mother-and-sons criminal gang. It's there that Chunk befriends the deformed Fratelli son Sloth, who spends his days chained in front of a TV and starved of human contact. Get More »
"Goonies never say die," and fans of all ages have given an extended life to the beloved Steven Spielberg-produced film about a group of misfits that go on a wild treasure hunt to save their homes from greedy developers. It doesn't seem like it's been 25 years since Mikey, Chunk, Mouth, Data and the gang escaped under the Fratelli's hideout to seek out the riches of pirate One-Eyed Willie, but Warner Bros. marked the occasion with a collector's edition DVD and Blu-ray debut packed with a board game, collectible storyboard prints, a 1985 souvenir magazine and more.
