Cool Videos: Everything wrong with The Goonies may be blasphemous

03.19.2014

If you were a child of the 1980s or later, THE GOONIES is probably a part of your memories. Basically a kid version of INDIANA JONES, THE GOONIES was the perfect mix of Steven Spielberg, director Richard Donner, and Corey Feldman. Who doesn't quote the movie multiple times a day? I know I do. And, despite any faults it may have in the three decades since it was in theaters, THE GOONIES is still a fun movie to watch.

So, it somewhat pains me to share this video from the folks at Cinema Sins who have compiled a list of everything wrong with THE GOONIES. While my immediate reaction was to shout "bullshit!", I can see where some of their points are valid. I may not agree with them, but they are certainly worthy of discussion amongst the civilized cineastes amongst you. Now, rip those bastards a new asshole for shitting on THE GOONIES!

Honestly, I lost interest a minute in. Goonies is a kids movie, and a treasured one at that. It's hard to fault it for it's imperfections. It's just so much damn fun, that I find it hard to find these faults funny. That and the tone seems to have no love for the film. When these guys like a film, they tend to show they like it even when they're listing faults.

One I noticed a couple weeks ago was when the kids find the lodge or whatever,they ask where is North and dig out their compass . I had to pause the movie a minute and let the realization that they are idiots wash over me. They are in Oregon, that wet stuff to their left is the Pacific, not exactly difficult to deduce which way is North.

Everyone's going to look at the Goonies through nostalgia-tinted glasses. If we're being honest, it's not as well made a film as the likes of Back to the Future, Gremlins or Ghostbusters.

But it's still a ton of fun. It's one of those movies that, no matter how many faults it has, you still love it just because it's so much fun.

I love making fun of movies, but the truth is, you can rip any movie apart if you wanted to. Fiction isn't a science. If I wanted to I could find faults in all of my favorite films, but why would I want to? I usually only point out faults in movies that I don't like just to justify my own personal taste in movies.

Awesome!

Not a huge fan of these but this one was pretty funny. I really liked all of the "sins" that take place at the end on the beach. Love Goonies but there really are a ton of things you don't notice when watching as a kid!

The biggest thing wrong with The Goonies was....

.....the limited amount of focus on Kerri Green's hotness. Did you see her in the bikini in Summer Rental? Always one of my favorite teen hotties.....

Let's not get crazy now, Alex. I love The Goonies too but these are valid points AND this is just in fun anyways. It's not this lessens the movie in any way.
