The Goonies (DVD)
Advantages: Funny, Brings back childhood, entertaining
Disadvantages: little dated by now
I watched this film for the first time a short while ago, being 25, when I tell people I had never seen the Goonies, they were shocked, i could honestly say I'd never heard of it up until when we borrowed it off our friend to watch one evening.
the film starts off with a group of kids who live in a house which is rigged up with what would've been 'cool traps' when i was a kid. The film was made in 1985 so now things do look a little dated but its all in good fun if you decide to watch it anyway.
They start off in the house where there mother is about to go out and tells them specifically not to go in the loft, well guess what happens?
they go in the loft and find lots of old junk along with a treasure map and decide to go on the treasure hunt and lots of chaos ensues when Some others decide they want this treasure as well.
There is another kind of bizarre family that is after the treasure and part of the bizareness is that they have a weird Son who has been locked up for years and is a little disturbing to watch, but aside from that, its not a bad film at all, I glad I got to see it in my lifetime andf now I can say I am an Avid Goony fan.
The storyline kept me riveted and there were some quite good thrills, spills and excitement along the way. There has been talk about a Goonies 2 but I say leave it in the past, its best kept where it ought to be.
Summary: Watch it for a laugh
