Astoria on Film

OK, I’ve been getting a lot of e-mail asking about Astoria and why it sounds so familiar to the writers. You probably wouldn’t have heard much about this area other than the movies that were filmed here. Here’s a list.

Kindergarten Cop
The Goonies
Free Willy
The Ring II
One of the Ninja Turtle movies
Short Circuit
Probably a couple more that I’m forgetting.

And what the hell is it with The Goonies? We have streams of people come to town because this was their coming of age movie. Get over it, for christ sake and go see a real film. Try something with sub-titles, and learn to read.
