Product Description

Product Description

Astin/Brolin/Cohen/Feldman ~ Goonies

Amazon.ca

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 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 neighborhood 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: Sean Astin (Rudy, Encino Man) and Martha Plimpton (Pecker, 200 Cigarettes). --Samantha Allen Storey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the 1980s' most enjoyable romps, this fun adventure throws together a group of kids spending their last days with one another into a quest for hidden treasure, all with escaped criminals on their tail. What follows is a movie filled with spills, chills, chases, action, awesome set pieces and obstacles, and plenty of humor. All very predictable, and all very fun. Think The Little Rascals in the world of Indiana Jones and you have the right idea.
Take note before buying this for kids: Some of the humor from the 80s is probably more risqué than would be expected. This would probably get a PG-13 were it released today. The kids joke about sexuality and drugs in a way that many might be surprised about. Parents with small children, proceed with caution. That said, the movie remains kid friendly enough that it should be fine for most kids over 10.
This DVD looks very good; while not state-of-the-art, it is an improvement over the VHS versions that have kicked around for years. Great sound, good picture. All very nice.
The extras really stand out here. We have a Making Of documentary that covers all the bases, with plenty of on set footage and interviews. Informative and well done. An array of deleted scenes was surprisingly good - some of this footage is excellent - though not complete. Finally, the DVD commentary brings the cast back together for a very funny gathering as they swap stories from way back when. Good viewing for longtime fans.
The only downer on this DVD is that it comes in one of those awful Warner's snapcases. This reviewer hates those cases; if you have no such hatred, then there is nothing to worry about. A nice buy for the price.

Format: DVD
After the success (and controversy) of GREMLINS, Spielberg began one of the most fruitful periods of his producing career with the 1985 summer releases of Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale's BACK TO THE FUTURE and Richard Donner's THE GOONIES.
THE GOONIES, an adventure story conceived by Spielberg himself, tells the tale of a "ragtag" band of kids from the wrong side of the docks who call themselves "The Goonies". The Goonies find their friendships threatened when their homes (a lower income section of town known as "the Goondocks") are in danger of being purchased to create a country club in their places.
In desperation, the boys, hanging out in one of their soon to be demolished houses on what they believe their last day together, go upstairs to an old attic filled with oddities and relics (the boys' father happens to be a curator at a local museum). The boys find a pirate treasure map in the attic, which causes Mikey (the key Goonie) to recite information about a local pirate legend his father filled his head with, a tale of hidden pirate treasure and high adventure. In hopes of obtaining the money their parents need to stop foreclosure on their home, the boys decide to follow the map and it's clues to where the fabled "rich stuff" lies.
Concurrently, a trio of ne'r-do-wells, the Fratellis (two convict sons and their equally tough-as-nails mother) perform a daring jail break and after a high-speed police chase through town, the trio hide out in a derelict restaurant. The Goonies' treasure map happens to lead them to this very same restaurant which is the entry-way to the subterranean caverns (below suburbia) that the pirate treasure lies within.

Format: DVD
This is a great movie that Speilberg and Donnar have made here! A town under threat of beeing bought out by a company who want to make it a golf coarse seem to have lost the battle and are about to pack up, untill a group of kids who call them selves gooneis find a tresure map and go hunting for pirate gold!
Along the way they meet some bad guys and recruit some members of various ages and is filled with comedy, suspence and wont leave your bored out of your brain!
The bonus features are pretty good, tho mind you, i'm not a fan of Cindy Laupher, and her video clip seems to go forever filled with not just the actors of the movie, but a bunch of 80's pro wrestlers as well! IF you have never seen this movie before, then i recomend buying it! If you have seen it and dont have it on DVD, you wont regret buying it if you liked it!
It would be nice to have a directoers cut that showed the deleted scenes within vewing of the movie like on some TV showing of the film, but there still there as a bonus feature on there own!

Pirate ships, buried treasure, secret tunnels, disfigured monsters, gun wielding bad guys- everything from a kid's imagination. Spielberg's Goonies is a great movie to spend a rainy afternoon with, reminding you of those childhood escapades to the Nth power.
A gang of kids- The Fat Kid, The Techno Whiz, The Spiked-Hair Dude, The Exercise Buff, The Earnest Kid, The Geeky Girl and The Pretty Girl- all refer to themselves as Goonies, and a contracting group is preparing to destroy many of the houses in that area to make room for its country club. The Goonies' only hope is to find enough money to buy off the group, but they're just kids. When all the Goonies but the last two are rummaging through their attic, they discover a mystical amulet and a treasue map. Using instructions on the map, they find their way into the underground network of tunnels made by "One-Eyed Willie," an infamous pirate. They are chased by several ruthless bandits and their even more ruthless mother, who are also interested in the deceased pirate's treasure. When one of the Goonies named Chunk (hint hint) is captured by the villains, he makes friends with a deformed giant named Sloth. Sloth was apparently the victim of the verse in Rock-a-Bye Baby referring to the cradle falling, for his face is rather contorted. Chunk and Sloth save the Goonies as the bad guys corner them on the pirate ship. The Goonies escape, of course, and bring the treasure with them. All is saved, and the credits roll.
This movie is great for any day, and I recommend it.
