The Goonies - 30th Anniversary [Blu-ray] Review

Hard to believe that it is 30 years since The Goonies was first released.
An instant classic, its longevity shows by the very fact that 30 years later we are still talking about it.

Regarding the release itself as you would expect with a Blu-ray release you get the usual special features and never before seen deleted scenes but perhaps another big seller from true Goonies fans is the merchandise, see photo below.

There are some cool Art Cards, a mini magazine showcasing the making of the film, an Empire’s ‘Cast – Where Are They Now’ mini magazine and Story boards.

The cover artwork is great on the Blu-ray, and will look awesome on your shelf.

I am sure you have all seen the film, kids who find out their homes will be demolished, so they head off, find a map, and search for the treasure of One Eyed Willy. This is classic kids fantasy film, you have Sloth, you have Chunk and his famous truffle shuffle, what more do you need? Well how about it all in glorious high definition!

The film was already a classic 80's film, but now with perfect sound, perfect picture, this should be on everyone's Christmas list!
