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

    Ebert told me most of my favorite 80's movies including THE EVIL DEAD (how do you miss the clever lo-fi filmmaking?) were bad but THE GOLDEN CHILD was awesome.

    You're being willfully obtuse and denying that THE THING s considered a classic today and that it's box office failure was due to critics like Ebert's very deep "it's the barf-bag movie of summer." Yeah, that's shitty criticism and fits with Rex Reed. Ebert's been objectively wrong at the start...

    I have no doubt another audience might react different and younger kids would eat it up. Yes it made money but the film promises a sequel that doesn't come and it was not well-reviewed. I watched audiences as much as the film growing up and you can tell when the film connects. I loved BIG...

    I might check this out in 4K, but I was so caught up in Spielberg 80's fever I cut sophomore class to see this opening day -- and had my first major theatrical letdown. Not funny, racist (I was 13 and groaned at the Mexican maid scene) and Donner's typical uninspired direction bolstered by...
