If good enough for you is good enough for me, then this great film might just be great for all of us. Directed by Superman helmer Richard Donner, the fingerprints of Executive Producer Steven Spielberg appear all over this treasure quest taken up by a ragtag group of youngsters called The Goonies, who are owed a debt by Stranger Things. The youngsters here take on greedy property developers and end up chasing buried gold and being chased by mobsters (R.I.P., Anne Ramsey). In and out of various traps and tight spots, The Goonies have limited time to save the family home (and themselves).
