The Goonies

Richard Donner

When a film comes from the creative minds behind E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark and Home Alone – plus a couple of Harry Potter titles – is it any surprise we’re still talking about it over 30 years later? Or that the hugely popular TV series Stranger Things owes much to its trailblazing originality and cult status?

The Goonies – as Mikey, Brandon, Data, Mouth and Chunk like to call their gang – are meeting for what could be the last time in their soon to be demolished neighbourhood. Desperate to find a way to save their homes, they come across an old Spanish map that leads them on an adventure to unearth the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate. Needless to say, they are not the only ones after such fabulous treasure, and soon discover their deadly rivals are the Fratellis, a local family deeply immersed in the criminal underworld. The race is on!

The secret caves. The old lighthouse. The lost map. The treacherous traps. The hidden treasure. And Sloth... Need we say more? (Except “Goonies never say die!”)
