The Goonies

The Goonies (1985)Since I didn’t have access to many movies in my childhood, I still have to catch up with some classics. “The Goonies” I heard brings warm childhood memories to many of my peers.

IMDB raintg: 7.2
My rating: 8.0 ********

This is an excellent adventure film with treasures, pirates, police car chases, traps and anything else that you could possibly imagine in this sort of movie. There are also many familiar faces such as Sean Astinwho played Sam in Lord of the rings trilogy not far ago, and Corey Feldman who has been half of 80’s movies (“License to Drive” is one of my favourites).

I was pretty impressed by all the special effects that were used in the film. I thought that it felt somehow familiar, so I checked it up, and sure enough I saw Steven Spielberg credited as producer. I guess this will soon become synonymos with the phrase “special effect”.
