Sloth GooniesHey Goonies !

I’m Fred, a Goonies fan from France (by the way, excuse me for my english in advance!). I was the webmaster of Goonies1632.com from 2002 to 2009.
I closed the site to work on a new version that I never opened… until today with this blog ! The website will be online on MAY, I still a lot of work to do !

I grew up with many movies from the ’80s, such as Indiana Jones, Gremlins, Beetlejuice, Back to the future, E.T., Explorers, Blade Runner, Poltergeist, Ghostbusters, Labyrinth and of course The Goonies !

This movie has always been special to me.. I love the ambiance of the movie.. the small town, the rain, the set design is amazing (Aaahhhhh the time with some talented real artists and no CGI !) and the actors are incredibles.. everything look so real, you can feel it ! I’ve probably seen this movie over 1000 times ! I’m sure you too, right ?!

In 2004, I realized a dream.. to go to Astoria !

That was my very first adventure worldwide and it was a blast !! I loved this small town, people were very nice and I visited all the locations.
In 2010, I went to the 25th anniversary event and stayed at the Goonies house ! Yes ! Another dream come true. It was surreal, a lot of nostalgic feelings ! That was amazing to awake every morning with the sound of the Sea Lions !

I’m also a Goonies collector. But I like to call my collection  : “my archives“, because I intend to have everything to share on the website. But only vintage stuff and 10960404_10200250866511672_297999859174389248_oprops/crew/production material.

2015 is a very important year. It’s the 30th anniversary of our favorite movie.. WHAT ? 30 YEARS ?? Yes.. that’s a strange feeling called nostalgia 🙂
I’ll be back in Astoria, I can’t wait ! And you ?
During the event, I will try to cover what I can, with many pics and videos.

I hope you’ll enjoy this blog ! Don’t forget to come every monday ! Why ? Because I do a “monday quote”, a graphic quote from the movie !

Never Say Die !

– Fred –

    Bonjour Fred, comme toi je suis fan de ce film des que j’ai sorti de la salle de cinéma en 1985 je me suis dit; un jour je vais y aller voir les lieux ou ce film a été tourné et voilà j’y serai pour le 30th, le rêve de ma vie ! Pour le regarder houff j’ai usé mes vhs dans le temps et aujourd’hui depuis 30ans je le regarde au moins 1 à 2 fois par année ce film et surtout j’aime le regarder quand il pleut ca me met dans l’ambiance. Les films des années 80’s moi aussi j’ai grandi avec ca, c’était mon adolescence.
    En passant tu fait un super beau travail avec tes sites etc lâche pas et au plaisir de se voir à Astoria en juin !

      Bonjour Danny !
      Ahhhhh les bonnes vieilles VHS… j’adore ! J’ai toujours les miennes, elles sont pas en super état mais ça a un coté plus magique que le bluray je trouve !
      Pour la pluie idem ! J’adore les temps pluvieux à cause de ça.. d’où aussi mon choix de destination pour mon déménagement prochain 😉

      Merci pour le compliment, ça fait plaisir de voir son boulot apprécié ! A bientôt à Astoria !
      – Fred
