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.

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!!!!

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....

Goonies is a 1985 film directed by richard donner and produced by steven speilberg and can easily be classified as the greatest kids movie of the 80s if not all time,such is the action,the spills,thrills and maybe kills that feature in the ultimate good versus evil movie of its kind.The adventure that the goonies partake in is something that all kids wish they could recreate and i aint ashamed to admit that i along with my brothers and sister went walking for miles along the river near our home when we were young,sadly we didnt find any treasure.

Goonies is a film that excels in excitement and suspense while maintaining a feel good feeling throughout,its a film that has characters that we all can identify with in our groups of friends as a child.

Its a film that groups of friends even as adults can discuss today and share their favoutite memories,such is the strength of this movie,if you are young or old you will love this harmless film that just sparkles and oozes near perfect brilliance.

I grew up watching this film - i loved it when i was little, i loved it a few years ago, and i love it even more now! you can't help but get carried away into their little adventure and it makes you want to be a goonie yourself, corey feldman is so funny as mouth :
"hey chunk, i've got some naked pictures of your mom, taking a bath - u wanna buy em? REAL cheap!"
There are so many funny moments in this film, like chunks 'truffle shuffle', mouths translations for rosalita, datas james-bond style gadgets and andy and steph being petrified every second!
If you've seen the film, there's nothing i can say - if you haven't, watch this with an open mind, and don't take it too seriously, you'll enjoy it all the more if you don't!
buy this classic film, and have fun!!
