The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.

Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable

The Goonies is a movie that's inevitably going to show up on most all lists dealing with films of the 80s. While it does include its fair share of references to a good bit of 80s culture, the biggest draw I found with the movie is in the story. By no means is this a claim to boast it as being the most original story, but the smaller decisions to use a younger cast, focus on a classic pirate storyline, and root it with such relatable dialogue and characters is where the magic happens. The Goonies thrives from the kids. The careful casting, writing, and direction that went into making each kid their own special character is what has propelled the movie for decades. The stoic nature of Mikey plays perfectly off the perfectly named Mouth. The inclusion of the gadget based Data gives the movie a nice geeky side, and the cherry on top is in the form of the scene stealing Chunk. Then while the movie makes the smart decision to maintain its focus on the kids, the short fray into the teenagers subplots provides an enjoyable draw for the adolescent age group as well. Parents of today can then turn around and reminisce on the adventurous joys that came with being a kid in the 80s.Unfortunately a common argument that plagues a certain amount of films of every decade, but can stick out at times here is the technical aging of The Goonies. The dialogue dubbing, outdated special effects, and cheesy one liners can be distracting at times. In addition, the teenage subplot while minimal feels very artificial and last minute. However, at the end of the day, The Goonies lighthearted, feel-good story, dialogue, and characters cement it in the Pantheon of 80's Classics!

Not only was The Goonies a brilliantly written, directed, and acted movie, but it was also so much FUN! The adventures of these kids through the underground world, while being chased by the despicable villains known as the Fratellis, are fascinating to watch-movies.ga . The Goonies is a great cinematic experience. It has everything that anyone who was ever a kid could ever want. Even the elaborate sets are very convincing.

In order to save their home from foreclosure, a group of misfits set out to find a pirate's ancient valuable treasure. The Goonies is a 1985 American adventure comedy film directed by Richard Donner and stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Robert Davi, Joe Pantoliano and Corey Feldman. What i loved the most about the Goonies except the great storyline about adventure it was the teamwork and the friendship between the main characters for example the friendship between Chunk and Sloth feels so realistic and at times it's even heartbreaking plus Sloth has a fantastic scene where he goes up against his 2 brothers and he rips his shirt off and we see him wearing a Superman Theme and suddenly the iconic Christoper Reeve Theme starts playing in the background. Brand (Brolin) is kinda the typical older brother jackass but as the movie keeps going you are invested more and more on him and the performances by all the kids and even the villains are excellent but i think that Chunk is the one who steals the show the most he is funny and just a lovable character as a whole. Plus Steven Spielberg wrote the story for the movie as well so the whole adventure thing is his own idea for the most part i believe because i get a lot of Indiana Jones vibes threw out the whole movie. The movie also received mixed reviews from critics and many of them complained that the movie was alright for kids but for adults it might be hard to follow but honestly i can't see that the movie might have kids starring but that doesn't mean that is terrible or something. Also for many years there have been a lot of rumors about a Sequel and although i'm not against of that it won't have the same magic as the original had. (A+)
