This movie will always have a huge place in my heart. I went absolutely nuts about it when it first came out because I had the same name as the lead character. I bought up every bit of merchandise I could get my hands on. The Goonies was also responsible for the best con experience I have had. Sean Astin was a guest at DragonCon a few years back. As soon as he was confirmed, I knew I would be getting his autograph. I waited in line to meet him and told him how much The Goonies meant to me as a kid and how it remains one of my all time favorite movies, partly because my name was Mikey Walsh. Sean smirked at me and told me to prove it and jokingly demanded to see some ID. So I showed him my drivers license as proof and he grudgingly accepted it while everyone around us laughed. So I get to say that I was carded by Sean Astin. It’s a truly timeless movie.
