The Goonies holds something that every kid should find magical, even though the only magic in the movie is the magic of friendship. Steven Spielberg wrote the story about a group of friends who are about to lose their houses so a country club can be built where they leave. They come upon a treasure map that supposedly has a legend behind it, and leads to a great treasure. Mikey and his colorful bunch of friends set up to go in search of the treasure not knowing the villianist trio, the Fratellis, are also out for the treasure. Along the way, chaos ensues, friendships go stronger, and they meet a creature who has nothing but love to share and Baby Ruths to eat.
The characters are all likable . . . are all lovable, and the actors who portray them made them all that they were. The Fratellis are even, in some ways, likable throughout the movie, but in the end, they get what they were asking for. The directing, of course, is awesome. None like it actually. And the sets are amazing. Especially the pirate ship set. That was too awesome, and enough to satisfy any adventure lover.
The DVD should satisfy any Goonies fan with the word of all the extras to be on it. And I'm ready to see the infamous deleted octopus scene. I hope it's on there. I believe I read somewhere that some of the cast had gotten together to do a commentary. Now there's wishful hoping that that did happen!
"SLOTH LOVE CHUNK!" And Josh loves this movie.
That said, here's what you get with this DVD and here's why you should buy it today:
The movie itself is enough however...
The deleted scenes are a lot of fun. We finally get to see the ever-fabled "Octopus" scene. For years, I would scratch my head when Data said "The Octopus was really scary!" Huh? What Octopus? Well, he's in this DVD. You also realize why the scene was cut out. Let's just say the animatronics weren't all that great.
Those old music videos starring Cyndi Lauper and various classic WWF wrestlers are here too. Remember Rock "n" Wrestling? I found myself saying "oh yeah....I remember that!" Watch for a cameo of Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles in the video!
The DVD commentary is a lot of fun! While almost every new DVD has a commentary in place, it almost always bores one to tears with the director or a star just kind of droning their way through the movie. Often, the major stars don't even do the commentary (great example is Rocky - where the commentary features everyone but Stallone himself!) This commentary has all of the original Goonie stars plus Richard Donner. There's a lot of joking around and the stories they tell are funny and don't go off the subject. Note: Sean Astin disappears about halfway through the flick. Also, beware Corey Feldman who talk over everyone to further perpetuate that he is the biggest glory hog in show business.
Enough already. This is such a great movie and the special features are ones that you'll actually watch more than once! Buy the DVD already!

|Is the 25th Anniversary Edition the same transfer as the previous Blu Ray?||
Id like to know this too, as well as if the blu-ray is remastered (I hate it when they do that, I like the dated look. Id like someone who's actually seen it to answer, as many bluray/dvd's say remastered but look no different), and if it has the deleted scenes one of the reviewers was talking... Read More

|Best place to buy GOONIES blu ray at a discounted price?||
Wait - they did the same thing with Wizard Of Oz & Gone With The Wind... those were priced around 60-70 bucks each and the single discs are now around 15-16 bucks each. Wait - there will be a disc-only release, guaranteed.

Why bother with all this extra crap when you can get it for about $10 on the uk amazon website. Its all region, it plays fine on any USA blu ray player. Ive had mine forever. Only thing to see is if this is any of a better transfer than the uk version. The UK version already has all the deleted... Read More

Back in the 90's Disney aired the Goonies on the Disney Channel (when you had to pay for the Disney channel, like HBO) and it was edited with language BUT all the deleted scenes from the dvd and more are added. http://www.ioffer.com/i/the-goo
