There are a lot of complaints that sequels to classics don’t live up to the hype, but lately, Top Gun: Maverick starring Tom Cruise turned out to be an amazing sequel to a cult classic. He set a perfect example that if done well, even a classic can have a spectacular following. Not only that but even Prey turned out to be an incredible success and did the franchise justice, so hopefully if another part of The Goonies is done, then it can also turn out as good as these sequels.
