THE GOONIES
1985, Warner Bros., 114 min, USA, Dir: Richard Donner

Sean Astin, Ke Huy Quan, Martha Plimpton and Corey Feldman embark on a daring adventure that somehow weaves dirt bikes, bank robbers, pirate maps, James Bond-esque gadgetry, Joe Pantoliano and a super-powered mutant named Sloth into a fantastically fast-paced movie! The screenplay by Chris Columbus (GREMLINS), based on Steven Spielberg’s story, does not talk down to kids.


STAND BY ME
1986, Sony Repertory, 89 min, Dir: Rob Reiner

One of the most classic and quotable coming-of-age films ever made, Rob Reiner's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Body" is at once hilarious and heartbreaking, and a spot-on time capsule of small-town America in the 1950s. Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell star as friends on the precipice of junior high school, enjoying a summer of small-fry hijinks. When they go looking for the body of a boy presumed dead from a train accident, they must come to terms with the difficult changes the future holds.
