Brief Synopsis:
The Inferno TV Composite is an extended cut of The Goonies, adding back 3 new scenes that were exclusive to the TV Cut of the film, aired in the 80s. 8 more minutes of footage has been added back in, sourced from the Blu-Ray, DVD and a TV Recording from the 80s.
Intention:
I wanted to put the ever-debated Octopus scene back into the film, as it's referenced in the theatrical film with no context, and many have faint memories of an octopus scene. So I thought to remake this TV cut, without all the censorship.
Additional Notes:
The film has been cropped down from 2.35:1 to 1.78:1 to allow for the new DVD/VHS quality scenes to fit a little nicer as a lot of image area would be lost as the 1.33:1 footage would have 75% of its image lost. So the comprimise was to make the film 1.78:1. Any shots needing specific cropping or spacing have been done accordingly.
Other Sources:
The Goonies Blu-Ray - For the film and the deleted scenes
80s VHS TV Recording - For a small portion of a deleted scene not included on the Blu-Ray

This is the definitive version of The Goonies.

I had seen the octopus-scene before as an extra on the DVD, but it works so much better when edited in the movie itself.
The scenes from the TV cut were completely new to me. I really enjoyed seeing "new" vintage Goonies material.

Can't wait to view more of Bobson Dugnutt's edits.
