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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

The goonies is a much loved film. The film brings back memories of childhood-A time when you also believed that the gadgets you made would fend off anyone who was in your way. It brings back the magic and imagination everyone had as a child, where pirates were real and treasure maps found in bottles were a dream come true. It's about a group of kids who go treasure hunting by mistake when they get mixed up with a family gang who are also after the treasure. The effects and scenery are superb and you really feel like jumping in the screen and helping them. The young japenese "Gadget maker" is superb and will have you rolling around the floor in laughter. A must Watch film for anyone wishing to jump back to childhood for a couple of hours....

Anyone currently in their late twenties up to their late thirties will remember the Goonies and the vast majority will love it. Its a coming of age film which a lot of people can relate to. Also for all those 80s music fans out there the soundtrack, (Cyndi Lauper : The Goonies R Good Enough) is great.

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.
