There are films that are so deeply rooted in popular culture that you can hardly find anyone who hasn't seen them. One of these titles certainly is I Goonies, cult of the 80s directed by Richard Donner. Yet there are those who have admitted that they have never seen the film. Who is it about? Of an illustrious name like director James Gunn.
The Goonies tells the story of a group of kids starting a wild treasure hunt to try to save their homes from building a golf course that now seems inevitable.
A film recently returned to the cinema on the occasion of its anniversary since its release, in a version in 4K.
During a Twitter conversation, James Gunn answered the question by Mike Birbiglia, who asked the Guardians of the Galaxy director what movie he constantly nods to when asked if he's seen it in conversation but doesn't really know what it is.
"People look shocked. My answer is The Goonies" Gunn admitted.
The director went on to list the most common answers he has heard to this question, namely Die Hard, Jaws, The Matrix, The Wizard of Oz and even Pulp Fiction.
James Gunn is writing and directing Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which will debut on Disney + in 2022.
