I think that’s what makes Goonies such a good film to do this story with—I will always love Raiders, but the very DNA of Goonies is set up so that, while filming the scenes of these kids going on this adventure, they’re doing the same thing. They can hit some of the same things that make Goonies work in this show without just “remaking” Goonies.While I'm not keen on endless reboots or sequels, this sounds like enough of a unique perspective on the subject that will be able to pay homage to the Goonies without risking the integrity of the original. If handled right it could actually be really, really good! I watched Raiders the Adaptation and it was a great timecapsule of the era and the culture of entertainment at the time. It was also very personal considering they reunited years later to finish what they started. More and more as I get older there's a bittersweet quality to looking back on your past and if this story is well written, I think it will hit all the right beats.
I was actually imagining it would take place not today. Not necessarily the 80s, it’s a little played out, but maybe 90s. The free-range childhood (as well as the ability for a minor to purchase gunpowder/light things on fire with minimal to no supervision) are part of the charm of Raiders: the Adaptation. If it were my project, I would lean into the “unsupervised, getting into trouble” thing.My only concern is believing a group of modern day kids would like the Goonies because im not sure young kids like old movies all that much. Unless they're written as a group of misfits who aren't exactly well regarded by their peers. If they wrote them as uber cool popular kids the show won't work.
Very true. Hopefully we'll get some more answers about what the show actually is about.I honestly didn't see that synopsis at the bottom. None of that matches up at all with the article. Then again if that synopsis IS true, count me out. I don't need some idiotic Kevin Smith type film. Ugh, no thanks!
If the Raiders adaptation part is true, I still think that aspect is intriguing. Then again this could all be a bunch of nonsense. I mean we're talking about Collider here. A review site full of bought and paid for shills.
It's going to be riding on the coat tails of a show riding on the coat tails of 80s nostalgia..This just sounds like something I would never want to watch. Ever.
