Check Out These Sweet Fan-Made Goonies Posters

Amanda CrumLife

I’m not sure if any movie did for me what “The Goonies” did when I was a small-town kid. It appealed to my sense of adventure, my sense of humor, my love of pirate tales, and the idea I had back then that a group of strong-willed kids really could save the day when put to the test. I probably watched it upwards of 300 times over the course of my childhood, and it never got old the way some favorites did (like Mary Poppins; it was the long, boring look into a banker’s life that did me in).

Today, I still count it as one of my all-time favorite films. Those characters are still firmly rooted in my mind as they appeared in the movie, even though most of them have gone on to bigger roles in bigger careers. I wanted to look like Andy, hang out with Mikey, invent something with Data, have pizza with Chunk. More importantly, I wanted to embark on an adventure of my own; the idea of finding a treasure map opened up creative doors for me and eventually led to me making my own, which in turn made me realize how much I loved to create art.

That’s why these fan-made posters immediately appealed to me, because these guys get it. Check ’em out.
