Although I have not fully grasped the cultural influence The Goonies has had over the past 35 years, I still found the movie to be a fun, adventurous romp with one of the better ensemble gathered who had such great chemistry with one another.
This Lethal Weapon Collection is a must for any fan. The picture and audio transfers for each film, while vary in terms of quality, are far better than their DVD counterparts. The features are also well done including four new featurettes totaling 105-minutes giving insights into the entire franchise with new interviews with members of the cast and crew.
Assassins wasn’t well received upon its release back in 1995 but even back then, I enjoyed the heck out of it thanks to the sharp dialogue, well written plot (even if the finale is predictable) and fine performances from Sylvester Stallone and Julianne Moore. This Blu-ray release is pretty good with audio and video transfers which make this a no-brainer upgrade over its DVD counterpart.
The Superman: The Complete Anthology is a fine set for sure and while the features are certainly comprehensive between vintage featurettes and multiple expansive documentaries and commentaries, but in particular the video has much to be desired. This isn’t to say they don’t look good but compared with the work Fox did with their Alien complete set, this one pales by comparison.
Although I have not fully grasped the cultural influence The Goonies has had over the past 25 years, I still found the movie to be a fun, adventurous romp with one of the better ensemble gathered who had such great chemistry with one another. The Blu-ray is good enough both in terms of the video and audio transfers while the features, albeit light in the featurettes department, more than makes up for it with the cast and director commentary/reunion.
