Mikey and Brandon Walsh are two brothers whose family is preparing to move due to a new development that is sure to be started unless enough money is raised, which is quite doubtful. But, when Mikey stumbles on a treasure map of the famed “One-Eyed” Willy’s hidden fortune, he, his brother, and a few friends set out on a quest to find the riches in hopes to save their homes. The entrance to a cavern is found, but it is located underneath an abandoned restaurant occupied by the Fratelli family, a treacherous group of thieves who attempt to beat the “Goonies” to the treasure.

  • “The Goonies” is a childhood classic that I have never forgotten since! It had a great cast especially young Sean Astin who really changed from being Mikey to the Frodo’s pal in Lord of the Rings Trilogy 15 years later. What’s great about this film is that it unfolds leisurely and takes the time to really build up the excitement. The Goonies don’t even enter the underground world until about 45 minutes into the film, but the build-up is so brilliantly done that it doesn’t matter. The story is much more original with suspenseful moments with the main characters and the pacing is very brisk. Overall, ‘The Goonies’ is a classic and is more recommendable to everyone who was born in the 80s.
