The Goonies | 1985

The Goonies is filled with controversial characters, but at its core, it’s a film about a group of scrappy kids who embark on an epic treasure hunt to save their town. It’s filled with teen romance and friendship, and has a kids-can-do-anything vibe that’s a lot like Stranger Things.
