When I was a kid, I wanted to belong to a group like The Goonies. Like most creative types, I was an outsider, so the film and characters spoke to me. Smartly, there was one of every type to make all sorts of misfits feel at home. Does it stand the test of time? Can you go home again? Find out after the jump:
This fall, Fox presented two live-action sitcoms to me, a huge champion of Arrested Development and sorta-fan of My Name Is Earl.
1) Running Wilde: created by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development) and Jim Vallely (Arrested __Development), starring Will Arnett (Arrested Development)
2) Raising Hope: created by Greg Garcia, the man behind Earl and (shudder) Yes, Dear
If you were to ask me three months ago which pilot would be funnier, I would be shocked at the answer: Raising Hope. My review — which invokes the Coen Brothers for some reason — after the jump.
Warner Home Video has officially announced The Goonies 25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition on DVD and Blu-ray. Scheduled for release on November 2, the new edition will feature:
- Cast commentary with Director and all seven actors
- The Making of the Goonies documentary
- Cyndi Lauper music video “The Goonies ‘R Good Enough”
- Includes new board game, original movie storyboard reproductions, 1985 souvenir magazine reprint, and reprint of 2009 Empire Magazine article with cast photos and updates
The Goonies is one of my favorite films, and I’ll admit the new edition sounds cool. Check out the cover art and a new trailer for the Blu-ray after the jump:
