A quiet night

Tonight Josh is watching The Goonies which used to be one of my all-time fave movies, and I think a lot has been cut ... but I can't get into it. I've had more fun reading the reviews at IMDB than watching the movie. Mainly because of the commercials. They totally kill the flow. Josh is kinda stoked because it was filmed in Astoria, which is only about an hour and a half from where we live. It's been a long time since I watched it, maybe I'll get around to buying it on DVD. It IS a good family movie. I don't think Tim has ever seen it ... just a little out of his age range when it came out (1985).

What were you doing in '85?

I was in 5th grade and getting used to the idea that my parents were now divorced and I had to start all over (again) in a new school. '85 was a hard year. Goonies were good. Comedy, adventure, and a touch of romance. And it was one of the few movies my dad let me watch. Josh thinks I'm strick now about viewing policies, he should have been in the house that I grew up in!

And now Chunk is being tortured by the Fratelli's. "Now tell us everything" and Chunk proceeds to tell his life story .... I think I'll stop for now.
