Movies I should’ve watched sooner: The Goonies

Should I have watched “The Goonies” sooner?

Yes! I am actually quite ashamed of the fact that I’ve waited until I was 26 to finally watch this film!

So why has taken this long to watch one of the most loved movies of the last 30 years?

Aside from sheer ignorance, I don’t have an appropriate answer to this question. Until today I have loved quite happily in this ignorance, however after hearing an incredible review from my Dad of all people, I decided to take the plunge.

Did I enjoy it?

I did! Maybe not as much as I would have if I’d watched it at 11/12, however this is a really fun, clever movie that has obviously had a dramatically instant impact on the Pop Culture we see today. 

Will I watch “The Goonies” again?

Definitely! I feel as though this will be a gift that keeps on giving. With incredible direction from Richard Donner (Leathal Weapon, Scrooged, Superman 1&2) and an obvious Spielberg influence makes for a really interesting formula

How would “The Goonies” score if this were a contest?

  1. Plot – 8/10
  2. Characters – 9/10
  3. Overall Enjoyment – 9/10
  4. Final Score – 26/30

Will I recommend someone who hasn’t watched “The Goonies” to watch it sooner?
Quite simply, if you are like me and haven’t got round to watching “The Goonies” yet, do so! It’s probably one of the most enjoyable films you will watch this year.
