Another classic ’80s adventure movie is The Goonies.

One day, the kids discover a treasure map that once belonged to a pirate named One-Eyed Willy. They set out to find the fortune with hopes that they can pay to save their homes. However, they encounter a group of dangerous criminals who want the treasure, too.
Marvel fans may recognize a young Josh Brolin, who grew up to play Thanos. The Goonies also stars Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen, and more.

believe it or not, Uncharted wasn’t Tom Holland’s first time chasing down treasure on the big screen.
