Few films have ever managed to capture and recreate the imagery of childhood imagination, let alone put it so beautifully onto film. Incorporating pirates, skeletons and monsters, The Goonies is the journey every child (and some adults) wished, and still wish, they could experience with their friends. Infallible and immortal, The Goonies: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition improves on what was a perfect film with crisp images and perfect tones.

For the uninitiated (shame on you), this 1985 classic is both a story of childhood loss and adventure. As two brothers Brand (Josh Brolin and Mikey (Sean Astin) fight to save their family’s house and struggle to face that this they be their last adventure with their friends, they embark on a epic journey with their pals Mouth (Corey Feldman), Chink (Jeff Cohen and Data (Jonathan Ke Quan) following a mysterious treasure map to what they hope is salvation. Joined on their journey by a variety of characters throughout , they must content with criminal family the Fratellis, booby traps, and the infamous pirate ‘One-Eyed Willie’ as they try to save their family.

Not only bringing The Goonies to life on stunning blu-ray, the 30th anniversary edition is packed with extras. Coming with priceless merchandise outlining lost scenes and the truth behind some of the most iconic scenes in the film, the collector’s edition also comes complete with a Making of the Goonies’ featurette packed full of enlightening interviews with cast and crew as well as commentary from the director Richard Donner and the cast. Most excitingly it comes a true blast of 80’s as we’re treated to Cyndi Lauper’s Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough music video which has about as much cheese as anyone can possibly handle. The extras are good and an interesting addition for true Goonies fans but honestly has little value for those who just enjoy the film for what it is. The collector’s cards are certainly a lot more interesting for the fair weather fan, but think hard before you invest the money in this; it’s something you have to truly want to be worth it.

A cult-classic, this 30 year old EPIC has lost none of its charm and The Goonies 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition certainly does it justice. Seeing the film on blu-ray is well worth it, but think hard before buying the collector’s edition, but if you are a die-hard fan, it’s worth it!
