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.

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

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.

When he learns his family are to be relocated away from their home, Mikey (Astin) and his friends The Goonies set out on one last adventure to find a Pirate's lost treasure.

The stars of tomorrow. The kids are out future. Whatever expression you choose, it can be applied to this good natured romp that sees modern day stars in their opening roles.

Sean Astin, who leads the way splendidly, would soon be hailed to fail in the Lord of the Rings trilogy whilst Josh Brolin would take up award winning roles in No Country for Old Men.

But of course this was the time before such accolades and so we settle for more subdued but more fun style acting in a charming adventure that has the energy and mystery of an Indiana Jones adventure, if not the sophisticated mythology and independence.

The opening scenes see a charming if highly unrealistic prison breakout that starts our adventure off in thrilling fashion. Followed sweetly by the sharp and memorable introduction of The Goonies and you'll be forgiven for smiling from ear to ear. Jonathan Ke Quan's introduction is one to not be spoiled, but watch out for never has a young actor made such an exciting appearance.

As we have a political message thrown in and some sloppy information encoded for historical emphasis, we are finally under way with the group setting off on an adventure to recover the treasure of One Eyed Willie. The idea sounds absurd, and in many degrees it is. In context the whole idea of getting treasure to save their house seems farfetched and a last ditch attempt but thankfully we can almost ignore the obscurity of this goal and simply sit back and enjoy the thrills and comedy spills along the way.

There are some marvellous set pieces juxtaposed with stunning semiotics of piracy.

For my generation this must be the most loved film of all time, came out in 1985 and demands to be rewatched whenever its repeated. For those who don't know the story revolves around a gang of kids (The Goonies - Mikey, Brand, Mouth, Data, Chunk Andy and Steph) finding a treasure map and searching for the treasure to save their town from demolition. Along the way they encounter the villainous Frateli family, a monster, twisting passages, a pirate ship and booty traps (I mean booby-traps ((THATS WHAT I SAID!))). From start to finish this film cannot fail to entertain from the brilliant characters (I know most peoples favourites are Chunk or Mouth but my favourites always been Data), to the action and the dialogue (Why didn't you use the stairs - Next time do it with your eyes open - HEY YOU GUYS - This is my dream, and it never came true so I'm taking it back) I just can't big this film up enough. For those of you who havent seen it - its as good as you've been told.
As for the extra's they are absolutely class, theres are a few deleted scenes including the octopus scene mentioned at the end which didn't make the final cut (I always though they were joking about this). The behind the scenes is short you'll miss it if you blink and the Cyndi Lauper has dated horribly. However the commentary is excellent, I was worried about who would and who wouldn't be on it but they managed to fit on all of The Goonies (although Sean Astins only there for the first half) and Richard Donner (Director). As expected the most vocal is Corey Fieldman and it does come over that they are all enjoying themselves.
