/I don't get it.

I don't get it either. Before clicking the link, I wondered if they were talking about a hurricane this late in the season (one eye = hurricane eye?) Also, it turns out that if we had two more named storms, the second would have been named William. THEN this headline would have made more sense. As it stands, I don't get it.

the goonies took place in astoria.

buttery_shame_cave: "what do the fratellis represent ... and what about sloth?"

The Fratellis are, clearly, the Catholic Church: trying to shame and scare the kids away from not only adventure, but adult-hood in general, in being so dismissive of their autonomy.
Not to mention the undercurrent implications of their capturing, torturing and enslaving children for their own purposes. Shades of sexual abuse there. Think on that when you re-watch the scene of Anne Ramsey forcing Corey Feldman to spit those jewels into her hand.

Sloth is a cautionary tale about "use it or lose it".
If you don't use it, you're basically consigning yourself to a lifetime chained up in a basement, taking orders from others.
But if you *use it* you not only have your dignity and autonomy, but you can be goddammed *Superman*.

jack21221: I suppose I'm the only person alive who hasn't seen goonies.

Sir, if you haven't seen goonies you just may not be alive.
