Well, what is there to say that hasnt been said already. This was constantly on my video when i was a nipper, and now its on dvd, its great. I love the idea of the hidden treasure, the bad guy brothers (who play off each other brilliantly), and the gadgets and secret passage ways and. . . . Just watch it, because you will love it, however old you are!!!!

When i saw this film on the shelf in this shop i wipped it straight into my basket. How could i resist? I couldn't! This is the most fun loving film with a meaning behind it and you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it. To describe it in 3 words, they would have to be: Exceptional, Dedicated & Chunk! This packed full of action film is one for everybody. Go on, make it appear on your shelf, you'll thank me for it.

Format: UMD Mini for PSP
As with all UMD's it loses the extras the DVD gives you but gives you the extra the DVD didn't give the abitilty to take the moive with you and it is super light plus the PSP is alos a game system.

The movie is crisp and perfect it may be many years old now but some of the 80's movie are great unlike the new ones filled CGI.

You probably know the plot and story but I will tell you anyway.

The Goonies are a group of kids about to lose thier home to development and be split up. They go on an adventure to find some pirate treasure and are followed by a trio of bungling crooks they outwit all of the booby traps set in thier way this is a great film to wath on a long trip and great value.

Summary:

The Goonies stumble upon a treasure map hidden in an attic and set off on the adventure of a lifetime in order to save their community from demolition.

This might be the greatest pre-teen adventure movie ever made. In my opinion it is, I own it on DVD and yet every time it's on TV I still watch the entire movie. The storytelling and filmmaking are that good. Hell, I want to be a Gonnie and run from the Fratelli's and find One-Eyed Willie's secret treasure. it bring's out the kid in all of us i feel.

The individual characters in the movie are great and extremely memorable. There is Mikey boy (leader), Chunk (truffle shuffle fat kid), Data (slick shoes) he is an inventor & the ever so gorgeous Sloth lol and the rebellious Corey Feldman as Mouth. The movie is funny, suspenseful, exciting, romantic and rewarding. And just because the movie is about kids, doesn't mean that adults can't enjoy it. All ages will enjoy this great adventure. Goonies never say die.

Note: If you rent the DVD be sure to watch the film twice, once with cast commentary. It's hilarious seeing all the cast grown up and talking about the making of the film.

This is a must own, 80s classic, cheesy as hell but great never the less, one film that will always be remembered

This superb adventure leads a group of friends (The Goonies) through many dangerous situations in search of 'one eyed willies' treasure. They work their way through booby traps, puzzles and the persuing threat of the dangerous Fratelli family in search of the treasure that will save their homes from redevelopement.
This DVD contains many extras including the infamous octopus scene which was cut from the cinema and vhs version of the film in the uk.
This film was the launch stone for some very talented young actors/actresses, including Sean Astin who played Samwise Gamgee in the massive Lord of the rings Trilogy, and Joe Pantoliano who went on too star in numerous films including The Matrix and the tv series The Sopranos.

I guess everyone's first question is How does it look? Well, it looks good. Really good. Perfect? No. I'll list the poorer aspects of the transfer first.

To me, a lot of shots with close-ups of actors don't look as vivid as those without. This might simply be because flesh tones have less variance when filling a large portion of the screen, and therefore maybe it's an unfair comparison. But it's definitely not as clear as I've seen on other movies (Blade Runner is an obvious example, and that has the highest definition HD master so far, scanned in at 4K resolution). One scene that looked particularly grainy was where Mouth is telling Rosalita she'll be locked in the cupboard. I think this can only be down to the original negative, because there are other scenes with lower light levels that have absolutely no grain at all. One thing that the HD mastering hasn't done much of is make the visual effects looks worse, as is the case with a lot of FX-heavy movies. One thing I did notice more was when the kids land in the pirate ship cavern and we get the big reveal, the flow of water on the right looks really bad - it's way too fast and looks composited.

On the positive side, it really does look good in wide shots, and there are many in this film. The shots of Astoria look great, I definitely noticed the backgrounds look sharper in some of these shots, like shot of Chunk doing his truffle shuffle - when you get the reverse shot of Chunk standing on the box, look at the houses on the hillside in the background. The attic scene looks surprisingly good, considering it's shot in low lighting. The plasma ball and lightning tube look really vivid here, I liked that. I was happy with how good the whole scene looked because it's got some great rain-diffused lighting and cinematography.
