I’m going to start a little series I like to call…

What's your favorite scene?

This installment focuses on The Goonies

Goonies Cover Art

This is one of my favorite movies.  It came out in 1985 (I was 14) and I must have seen it a few dozen times.  It’s got everything a funny kids movie should have.  It’s totally quotable, even 20 years later, and has a “Dreams can come true” kind of aura about it.  Not to mention it ties in a treasure hunt, and don’t you remember treasure hunts as a kid?   The fantastic adventures you could have when armed with a powerful imagination?

Over the weekend, I picked up this movie at Target for $8.  Watched it with the kids, and Jaden just loved it, although Sloth scared him and he wanted to turn it off if we weren’t going to watch it with him.  I had the movie on VHS but it’s packed away somewhere (we generally don’t watch VHS anymore).  And I didn’t realize that, hey, that lead character is Samwise Gamgee!  And that other guy, one of the Fratelli brothers – he’s from the Matrix!  And (DOUBLE GASP) that older Fratelli brother is on Stargate Atlantis, one of my all-time favorite shows!

So I want to know – which are your favorite scenes?

(Note #1: I’m trying out a new poll plugin for the first time, so I hope it works out ok.)

(Note #2: You can select as many as five (5) of your top favorite scenes.)

(Note #3: If I missed a favorite scene, leave it in as a comment and I’ll add it to the poll.)

What's your favorite scene in The Goonies? (select up to 5)
