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

It's something every kid wants to do. Have a close group of pals who go in search of a legendary pirates treasure and find more than we bargained for.
There was something magic about the goonies. Maybe it was just the plot...or the traps set by the pirates...or the treasure...getting tailed by a family of theives (admit it,everyone was scared of Mama Fratelli!)
I couldn't belive it when I saw Sean Astin in Lord of The Rings. I had always remembered him as a skinny wimp with braces! Each character in this film is unique and I loved them all. I thought Chunk was hilarious especially when he's trying to tame Sloth!
I don't know anyone who doesn't love this film, and it's classy 80s costumes (esp Brand and the shorts over trousers!) If you're a child of the 80's and haven't seen it think shame on yourself. Get it and make amends pronto!

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.

Wow, I watched this for the first time with this Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-Ray and now it's my favorite movie of all time!

Firstly the exclusive Steelbook is just beautiful, and a great price for such a class item! So glad I chose this over the standard Amaray case! The embossed logo and front and back pictures are cool to look at!

I'm so glad they used this front cover painting of the group hanging onto each others legs from the jagged rock, over the awful cover drawing of the original VHS and DVD with the picture that doesn't even look like any of the characters! The back cover is another gorgeous painting of them looking up front the bottom of the well. It has the Production Credits and Studio Logos at the bottom of the picture. The paintings used look exactly like the Characters in the movie.

Oh then you open the Steelbook and it has the gorgeous picture of the gang on a rock looking at the Pirate Ship at sea! No detail is missed out! The rear of the case as an Obi type card strip with the synopsis and details on, which is removable!

I can't believe I've never seen this movie until now! I'm very lucky to have it on such a great format in such a stunning package!

I love the special features, especially the Cyndi Lauper -Goonies R Good Enough Music Video! Also several Deleted Scenes, including some of the alternate scnes that appeared in different TV broadcasts for different reasons. Namely the ‘Convenience Store’ and ‘Octopus scene’, and Data’s extra gadgets! My favorite feature is the Picture In Picture Commentary feat. The Main cast and Director! It is so funny and interesting to hear their little stories throughout!
