The Goonies never say die!  What, might you ask, is a Goonie?  According to the Urban Dictionary, it is a person who is likable but also an oddball outcast, nerd, dork, and/or weirdo.  For millions of us, who were teenagers in 1985, it is the tale of a group of friends who follow a treasure map and go looking for a pirate ship, ...

Director Tim Burton is known for having a unique and rather "dark" perspective on storytelling.  His films, including Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, explore human nature and the demon inside us all generally in a rather humorous and lighthearted way.  An excellent example o...
