Craftymumthingz writes – Ok so it’s apparent that the movie industry have no new ideas what so ever, considering remakes are spreading from every nook and cranny like a zombie virus in a small town. Its getting ridiculous now and highly annoying. Then to want to remake The Goonies, are they having a laugh or what.
How dare they even think of touching this movie. Out of all the remakes I have come across this one has enraged me the most. What are they going to do to this one then? probably fill it with CGI, make it modern-day kids on a completely different quest. who knows?
Back away from this movie its been 31 years since Steven Spielberg’s The Goonies first hit our screens so why bother now. I will tell you why, they have no new ideas so think “fixing” up old movies is the way forward…. NO STOP! There is nothing they can do to this movie to make it any better. Who doesn’t still to this day sit with their kids during the holidays with a hot chocolate cuddled up watching The Goonies?
Lets recap the original:
When two brothers find out they might lose their house they are desperate to find a way to keep their home. They find a treasure map belonging to an old pirate by the name of One-Eyed Willie and bring some friends along to find it. They are all out looking for the “X” and trying to get away from a group of bad guys who also want the treasure. Our Goonies were played by: Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Jonathan Ke Huy Quan, Jeff Cohen, Kerri Green and Martha Plimpton.
The Goonies takes me way back to my childhood and I can still hear the words of mouth in the wishing well saying “This one, this one right here. This was my dream, my wish. And it didn’t come true. So I’m taking it back, I’m taking them all back.” Why destroy a great movie?
