Our Time

The Goonies is just the kind of movie you’d expect to come out of the 80’s. A group of kids look for buried treasure. While at the same time avoiding a family of criminals. The Goonies are a group of kids who search for treasure, because their homes are facing foreclosure. They find a treasure map in one of their houses and decide to go looking for it. Little do they know a family of criminals called the Fratelli’s is looking for the same treasure. The treasure in question belongs to a pirate named “One-Eyed” Willy. They go searching in an underground cave full of dangerous booby traps like spikes, rocks, or a deadly piano. Unlike most people my age, I didn’t watch The Goonies at a young age. Which doesn’t matter because I still loved it. All of the kids have their own memorable quirks that make them likable. It also becomes a game of before or while they were famous. With such names as Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, and Josh Brolin playing a part. The Goonies consist of: Mikey, the sick kid/leader, Brand, his athletic older brother, Chunk, the fat kid, Mouth, the talker, and Data, the inventor. There’s also Andy and Stef, two female members who join the group later on. My personal favorite character would have to be Sloth, the lovable deformed giant. He’s truly the heart of the movie. As he spends most of his time with Chunk. The sense of adventure is also fun and enjoyable. The Goonies is a must see if your on an 80’s kick.
