Flick Pick: The Goonies

The Goonies
(Warner Bros., 1985)

Steven Spielberg/Chris Columbus/Richard Donner's (there's three aces for you) well-woven little gem of a flick about a PNW treasure hunt gone gloriously right. You can thank Donner's experience directing all those episodes of "Danger Island" on The Banana Splits Show in the '70s for what you get here, with a much better budget. The only possible way this could have been better would be if the writers had been clairvoyant, and One-Eyed Willie turns out to have actually been Barbossa or Captain Jack Sparrow.
