That was an excellent one.
A very feeble attempt at affirmatie action
The first must-see film of the year.
I am a complete sucker for the kid/teen oriented movies of my youth. I will watch, eagerly, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Back to the Future, Vacation, Ghostbusters, The Lost Boys, and more. The Goonies is on that list for many. But not me. It is just So Stupid. I recently rewatched it, but only because I haven't seen it in any significant manner since I first saw it when I was 15. It is still awful. Not camp, not fun, just stupid. Everything is so telegraphed a mile in advance, so obviously set up that it's not perilous, interesting, or funny.There are a thousand ruined gags, but just take one as it's simple to explain. At the house before they all leave, one of the kids jumps and sits on the kitchen counter. But no, he sits in the sink. IN. The Sink. Then, someone else as a minor prank turns on the water to the sink. Minor hijinks. Guy sitting in sink is surprised he gets wet. But dude, you are in a sink. No one does this. No one acts even a little like any of these people. I was a kid then, and basically the same age as these actors. They are not exaggerated versions of 80s kids, but are made up Hollywood cartoon kids. No one acts like this. At all. Fake reality is what we go to movies for. Fakey fakeness is what? Nothing I care about. Still. 30 years on, I still hate this movie.
This could also apply to the reunion of Spielberg, Columbus and Donner but i was thinking to those Goonies kids! I think i saw them on screen when i was 11 during Christmas 85. Then i didn't get it was the new production of the team behind the great Gremlins of the last year but it was again a wonderful time: Chunk was really funny, Mikey got inspiration and Andy was just jaw-breaking (i couldn't speak without blushing!) ! Now i see that this team features LOTR Sam, Indy and Stand by me buddies so the cream of 80s kids: Brolin and Logia are forever cool here... For me, this movie is just awesome because it offers the best afternoon of fun, thrills, adventures we can imagine: it's like a role-playing session with friends (except mine had no girls) and it's much better than animated movies! Those kids lived in a beautiful location, had great values for each other, their parents and this pirate trail is much intriguing than those of Caribean! This movie is so great that today nobody can do the same! The DVD is really stuffed with nice outtakes, commentaries and a short making-of! So forget super heroes, violence and guns, steamy eroticism and hollow animals and be ready for this big magical adventure!
I don't think I knew a single kid when I was little that didn't have Goonies as one of their favorite movies and I am fairly certain that, today, the adults my age--of the male persuasion--that don't still feel the same are the people that have no since of fun, take everything too seriously, and turn their noses up at the Sabatini collection in their local library.I used to want to live here when I was little. I mean, not only could I be one of the Goonies, but Arnold Schwarzenegger would be my Kindergarten teacher, I could meet Johnny-5, and give a home to Benji.Astoria was a magic place where all your childhood fantasies came true.Especially The Goonies. It was the adventure high of a childhood filled with adventure movies, cartoons, comics, and eventually books.Pirate Treasure, a kid with inventions, bad guys, close friends, a pirate ship, all in the same town that has Kindergarten Cops and robots with lazers.It is literally every kids dream...and unfortunately, like the Ghostbusters, one that will be killed in a remake.DO NOT REMAKE THIS MOVIE. If you want to make money from it, re-release it. DO NOT REMAKE THIS FILM.
