a penny drops...

Along with most other people I know born in the 78-83 period I must have re-watched Richard Donner's classic The Goonies well into the double figures. Just yesterday on my 23rd viewing (shut up Joe, you were watching Babe anyway) I realised Josh Brolin plays Brandon the big brother. Cool eh? Buddies? Reminds me of the day I re-watched Flight of the Navigator and realized it was Sarah Jessica Parker all along or when I watched Last man on Earth and recognized Vincent Price's voice from the Thriller music video. Ahhhh, the 80's. I hated it at the time.

apparently Tom could be The Last Man on Earth for not realizing this sooner. I've only seen Ihe Goonies a handful of times when i was little and i knew Josh Brolin was in it.
But did you realize "Oh Hey Manz" Polly was in it?

Oh yeah Kris I can imagine you back in '07 watching No country... and getting distracted straight away because "oh wait, that's the guy who played a supporting part in a kids film from 22 years ago!, Glad to see him again!"
Anyway, this was a message for 生氣, not you.
Did you really watch Babe though?

I realized that Tony from Skins was the kid in About A Boy. Did you?

Didn't know the Brolin was in the Goonies. Also not sure I ever saw it. Didn't know there was a kid in About a Boy. I thought Hugh Grant was in that. Didn't know Sarah Jessica Parker played the horse in Babe, but that also makes sense given her face. Didn't ever see Babe for certain. Don't know who "Oh Hey Manz" Polly is. I do, however, recognize Vincent Price's voice everytime I hear it. Think that about covers it. Oh, Batman was in Empire of the Sun. Willis from Different Strokes is dead. The girl became a whore, but I could have that backwards. Harrison Ford use to have a 1922 acting credit on IMDb.com but somebody fixed that.

Dropkick said...

that picture should open with an audio clip going "OOOOHHH HEEEEEYYY MAAAAANNNNZ!"

Harrison Ford was in E.T. the scene was deleted and never restored, even in the newest dvd editions. It is however on a special anniversary lazer disk edition.

In any case,
ive said it once. I'll say it a million times. The actor who played SLOTH was an ex football player. Who dated a range of hot babes, actresses, levar burton's wife, etc.. wrote a book. And eventually died young, from excess partying.

So in your face Yuppie Hobos
