This movie reminds me of my childhood and all the adventures I went on, and I’m not just talking pretend. There was a time when kids got up on a Saturday, ate their cereal, watched a few cartoons, and then went outside to play and discover. Thinking about that time of discovery and this film helps me capture the emotion, excitement, and sometimes mystique that comes with adventure, and then I put that in my writing.
I love these Goonies; they’re not exactly Neverland lost boys, but close enough. (One of them does become a lost boy of another kind, but that’s an 80’s trivia question for another day.)
