Time flies indeed! It’s been 25 years since the cinema release of ‘The Goonies‘, and to mark the occasion Warner Home Video is releasing the movie in a collector’s edition, on both Blu-ray and DVD.
Treasure, teens and swashbuckling… this was a very successful film back in 1985. The film was directed by Richard Donner, written by Chris Columbus, and had an executive producer by the name of Steven Spielberg. It stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, Kerri Green, Martha Plimpton, Jonathan Ke Quan, Anne Ramsey, Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano.
On the disc, both Blu-ray and DVD format, is the following bonus content. Oddly, advantage has not been taken of all the additional room on the Blu-ray disc, both formats have the same bonus material. I guess the justification here is that there’s only a $5 premium for the high definition Blu-ray format over the standard definition DVD.
