Guilty pleasures... - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
First I watched "View From The Top" last night - the one where Gwyneth Paltrow dreams of becoming an airline stewardess, and Mike Myers is the trainer? I know, pretty dumb... but... it has Mark Ruffalo as her boyfriend... and he's adorable. *G*
Now I'm watching "Goonies". Yep. All the way through. Finally. For the first time. And - I'm such a perv - cuz little Seanie is so CUTE! Whenever does the big-eyed puppy dog eyes look, I can so see grownup Sean - *L*!
Gotta say, I think I finally figured out what put m off this movie for so long. It's the sound - so hard to understand the kids because it's not very clear, and they're always talking over each other. It makes it more realistic, but annoying as hell. Aw, well. And, sorry, but - the girlfriend is such a... well, I won't say it, but boy are her hormones on overdrive. The kids are so cute and huggy, though. Oh, and... the guy who betrays the crew in The Matrix is one of the bad guys. *G*
Beware of the booty traps!
I can't believe there's someone who had not seen Goonies! My sister was obsessed with it when we were growing up, so I basically have the silly thing memorized backwards! There's an extended version they sometimes show on tv, I wish I had it on tape.
I remember when I first met Sean, I told him about how long I have loved Goonies. I know, he hears it all the time, blah, blah, blah. But I could not help it. I was meeting Mikey Walsh, I HAD to say SOMETHING about it. *G*

Re: Holy S-H-I-T!
You know, I have Sean Astin Theory (which is not the Sean Astin Hair Theory, btw, which is something completely different):
Sean Astin will make a classic movie roughly every 10 years.
Goonies, when he was about 10 or 12
Rudy, when he was about 20 or 22
LOTR when he was about 30 or so
So, in about 5 years... expect him to be in another classic!
The cool thing? Standing in line for his autograph and seeing Goonies, Rudy AND LOTR fans all in line... *S*.
Let's see... that's a kids movie, a sports movie, and a fantasy epic. How about... a romantic comedy next time?
wow! I never knew you hadn't seen it before .. don't perv over baby-Seanie!
Seen bits and pieces, but not the whole thing.
Wow! Another 'I can't believe you've not seen it' comment :D I grew up on that movie...wow. An integral part of my childhood, like Gremlins, Ghostbusters...all those great 80s kids classics :D
(got this late)
So, all great '80's movies start with a G!
Being ANCIENT (*G*), I was a little too old for it when it first came out, and I think it's one of those movies where it's best if you see it first as a kid. It IS cool that they talk over each other, and shout and fall over each other all the time, because it's real... but it gives me such a headache! *L*! Liked it better this time, though, now that I got to see it all the way through. Just caught bits and bobs before.
*Joins the chorus!!* Glad you've seen it now though:D

*G* Aw, come on!!!! You were too old for it when it came out, too!!!

Maybe I was, but I actually went and saw it in the theater when it was originally released. And I have the LP soundtrack to prove it!
O.O! You did????
I think... I think I had been very into Spielberg during my teens... but Gremlins kind of turned me off of his stuff. And I'm pretty sure Gremlins came before this... since one of the things that Chunk was accused of by the police officer he called was making up stories about "little critters that turn evil when you put water on them" - *G*. So I seem to remember reading about this and groaning.... and not going to see it. *G*
Plus, I was probably in grad school and much too poor!!!
