13 Celebrity Bar Brawls

13 Celebrity Bar Brawls

Weird things that happened this week included Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean getting stabbed in a bar brawl. I have to admit, though, that this one kind of makes me adore him just a little bit more, because he was apparently leaping to defend the honor of model April Summers. Furthermore, after the incident, instead of heading to the hospital, he merely went back inside the bar, asked for a first aid kit, and patched himself up while ordering another drink, which I find mildly hilarious.

I was very excited: Back to the Future formed most of my pre-adolescent ideas about time travel, the 50s, and making out with your mother. Today, The Goonies celebrates its own 25th anniversary Blu-Ray release, which means that a) The Goonies came out the same year as Back to the Future and b) I have made it 25 years without seeing probably the most influential adventure film of my generation. Waa-waah!

But there’s a silver lining: Because I haven’t seen The Goonies but am plugged in enough to pop culture to know certain facts about the film, I can do a passable recreation of what I think this film is about. Okay, here goes: More »
