“Goonies never say die!” You’ve probably heard that famous catchphrase before, in reference to this 1985 classic adventure movie starring Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, and Josh Brolin in their formative years. 

It’s a classic tale of a group of misfit friends who embark on an epic quest to save their homes from foreclosure.

It’s an amazing cinematic experience that captures the essence of what India really feels like. It’s a simple, fun movie that has a deeper meaning weaved into the story.

The film is based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel of the same name and was later adapted into a Broadway musical in 2013.

This tells the story of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of HalloweenTown. After becoming bored with doing the same thing every year for Halloween, he stumbles upon Christmastown and decides to change Christmas into something more like Halloween.

This movie has become a Halloween classic. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s required viewing for every kid around the time October rolls around.
