Yeah, I think I'm now done - there's nothing left I absolutely have to have. The Goonies was it!

I have to agree, I got all my favorites now as well, or will have by the week of March 15th-ish! big grin

Back to the Future 1
Ghostbusters 1
Superman Blue Box Collection
Karate Kid *Complete Collection*
Indiana Jones Collection *expanded*
Star Trek 2
Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend
Adventures of Don Juan
Big Trouble in Little China
Masters of the Universe
Short Circuit
Spaceballs

Now: The Goonies!! At long last!

The only thing that I could think of that would really complete the collection is the soundtrack to the 1985 movie My Science Project.

For which people...?

I was excited when this title came up on the Varese board, mainly because of the reputation this score has in places like this. I never saw the film but have read all the eager posts about getting it released.
But when I played the clips (three or four times to be sure) I couldn't understand the fuss. Sounds jolly and energetic, but in a very obvious, cliche kind of way. What am I missing here? Are the clips not representative? I mean, if all I'd heard was the Raider's March, I'd probably never have got around to discovering The Well of Souls. Has Goonies some hidden splendors that go beyond the lightweight stuff in the clips?

It's a fun '80's romp score, Basil, but nothing outstanding!
I enjoy most of it, but I think a lot of the love is also for the film, which is, for many people, a 'memorable childhood film', with very distinctive characters, lines of dialogue, and music.
I actually loathe the film. I was getting a bit older when I saw it in the cinema (1985, I was 20) and I thought it was horrible. The music is the only good thing about it, in my opinion.
If you don't like the samples, I don't think the score is for you. The film also had some Max Steiner music in it, if I recall correctly.

That's interesting. Re-recorded pieces? Anyone know what Steiner pieces are in there?

I'll second that motion or notion or whatever!

Not only an absolutely sensational - perfect - score but a holy grail I thought was so caught up in legal and political shenanigans that I thought would NEVER happen!

And THE SPIRAL ROAD too????

What a fabulous day!! (and it's only 8:49am!!)



--Laughing way,way,way out loud! Damn, now my dog is pissed off. Wow, look at those teeth.

There are quotations from THE ADVENTURES OF DON JUAN in the action music on the ship. They're quite lovely, I must say.

John Williams' SUPERMAN theme also makes a cameo (i.e. "SuperSloth!!!")

I'm glad they didn't, if it meant taking out 4 minutes of score somewhere, that would have been poo poo. You can pick up the original soundtrack now for FAR cheaper than what it once was on amazon and places.

Yes yes I know, we would have lost some precious minutes of score, I agree but it's just childhood tender memory speaking

Wonder if the DON JUAN pieces are included? Anyone know if Grusin rerecorded them for the film or did they just use the original pieces?

I'm speechless. I have no speech. This one is so ordered.

This is my favorite score of ALL TIME. I'm in extacy. And they used my favorite poster art for the cover as well. Wow! What a day!

GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!!! :-)

The buried treasure has finally been unearthed, and we didn't have to get Chunk to eat his way to it either wink
