Frequently Bought Together
The Goonies are a bunch of misfit kids who take on some greedy property developers and try to save their neighbourbood by finding the lost treasure map of a 17th century pirate.
You may be surprised to discover that the director of the Lethal Weapon movies and scary horror flick The Omen, Richard Donner, also produced and directed this classic children's adventure (which, by the way, was written by Donner's screen-wizard friend Steven Spielberg). Then again you may not. The Goonies, like Donner's other movies, is the same old story of good versus evil. It has its share of bad guys (the Fratelli brothers and their villainous mother), reluctant-hero good guys (the Walsh bothers and their gang of friends), and lots of corny one-liners. Like in an old-fashioned Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew plot, the Goonies need to solve a problem: a corrupt corporate developer has bought out their neighbourhood and plans to flatten all their homes. Luckily, the beloved gang stumbles on a treasure map. In the hopes of finding the treasure to buy back their houses, the Goonies embark on their quest through underground passages, aboard pirate ships, and behind waterfalls. This swashbuckling and rollicking ride was also a great breeding ground for a couple of child actors who went on to enjoy numerous successes in adulthood: Josh Brolin (Into the Blue, Planet Terror) and Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys). --Samantha Allen Storey --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.See all Product Description

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.Read more ›
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.
Its hard to fault much in this film as it makes me go all dream like. What I would say is it drags its feet alot until the plot really gets going. But you don't mind that because its full of jokes. - Mal, 'Translating,' for Martha the Spanish maid, Mikey getting sprayed at the sink, Chunk eating cream out of a can, Mal's burst bike tyres, Chunk knocking over the statue, (and about one hundred other things!)
The plot is all the kids, (the rejects known as the Goonies) are going to have to move to different neighbourhoods because their homes are going to be bought out by compulsory order and demolished. They find One Eyed Willie's treasure map and go on one final adventure through a mini Indiana Jones fun park, (so to speak) with at one point what looks like fantastic water slides!
As earlier mentionned there's a lot of funny parts in this film. Chunk has his fair share. When caught by the bad family they threaten to take off his fingers in a food mixer but then he starts crying and going through a whole array of times he had down bad things. - One time he was sick in the cinema and everyone in the audience ending up being sick! One of the captors ends up liking him and finds him funny! Also the other Goonies get him to knock down a door by taunting him about a made up photo of his mum in the bath!
Running through the movie are not just one love story but two love stories.Read more ›
