The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collection DVD Review

The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collection DVD Review


Synopsis: From the imagination of Steven Spielberg, The Goonies plunges a band of small heroes into a swashbuckling surprise-around-every corner quest beyond their wildest dreams! Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys…and a mild mannered monster with a face only a mother could love.

Review: “Goonies NEVER say die!” That, along with a hundred other quotes still circle the head of any kid that grew up in the 80s.  If you were a kid in the 80s and you felt even remotely outcast the Goonies were your jam!   The fantasy epic was a mantra for me as a kid.  I can’t say enough good things about this film and I enjoy sharing it with my own kids to this day.

The Goonies follows a group of misfits that live in a seaside town.  Their homes are being forclosed on by an evil banker and they’re going to be split-up as their parents move away to find work.  They find a treasure map from an old pirate named “One-Eyed Willy” and they embark on a journey to find his pirate ship that only leads to trouble.  Along the way they stumble upon some escaped criminal mother and son pair and a second mutated brother who ends up stealing the show with some of the best tag lines from the film.  “Hey You Guuuuys!”.


You should do the truffle shuffle all the way to the store on this one.  It’s a great set and includes a ton of commemorative goodies.  Not to mention the wicked tin slipcase it all comes in.  This one is a home run and would make a GREAT xmas gift.

The special features of this DVD set include: Cast commentary with director and all seven actors, The Making of the Goonies documentary, Cyndi Lauper music video "The Goonies 'R Good Enough", Outtakes, Includes new board game, original movie storyboard reproductions, 1985 souvenir magazine reprint, and reprint of 2009 Empire Magazine article with cast photos and updates.
