    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Goonies - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Hmm. Looks like the Octopus scene was included on the Disney channel showings of The Goonies after all. The scene didn’t appear in either the theatrical version or when the film was released on VHS. However, a funny thing happened sometime in the 1990s. The Disney Channel aired The Goonies, and...

    Regarding the Octupus deleted scene, it was seen in the Cyndi Lauper music video shown endlessly on MTV at the time which may have led some to believe it was in the film when it wasn’t.

    Me too. Plenty. However that of course doesn’t make them bad critics. Differences of opinion does not imply anyone is right or wrong.

    Here’s a Goonies question for fans. I’ve been arguing with some “fans” that claim the deleted scenes , especially the Octopus scene, we’re inserted back into the film at some point and shown in theaters and on the Disney channel. I’ve never heard of this before and as far as I know, the...

    I cant even begin to list the number of excellent films I discovered thanks to Ebert. He is/was arguably the finest most influential film critic ever. Even John Q Public knew his name and when he gave a film a thumbs up. No other critic achieved his well deserved reputation. I didn’t always...

    So you think he’s an awful critic because you didn’t agree with his opinions? Seriously? Not facts.. just another opinion.

    By the way Indians Jones And The Temple Of Doom and Gremlins came out in 1984, a year before Goonies. ‘84 and ‘85 were great years for summer movies.

    I could just as easily pull positive reviews from its release. Like this one from Richard Corliss of The NY Times. “Which is only to say that The Goonies is as hip, sassy and innocent as its seven teenage heroes. In the Spielberg tradition, each youngster uses his or her ordinary strengths to...

    My experience seeing it in ‘85 was quite the opposite. The sold out crowd I saw it with roared with laughter throughout and cheered at the end. My friends and I loved it and had no issues with it at all. And calling it “proof” that it’s not a good film due to boxoffice?? Well we all know how...
