Amateurish, and I'm being generous here

Well, it's kinda like The Goonies, but without the cast, the acting, the characters, the story, the clever dialogue, the genius directing, the credibility, the props, the visuals, the overall loveability... Ah, forget it. It's nothing like the Goonies. It's just nothing.

I only give it two stars on account of the occasional spark of genuine comedic brilliance from the supporting actors; very rare, though...Give it a miss. You're missing, well, nothing.

Goonies rip off? NO

Apparently you love this film or you hate this film. What you should do is take one second to educate yourself about Pirate's Cove in the outerbanks of North Carolina and the lost colony, the inspiration for the movie. This was the original stomping ground of true pirates and early settlers in the new world. Goonies, a great movie, does not have that. This is not a rip off of other films.

There is a story behind this film

So I get it feels like I am shamelessly promoting this film. Did you know that Chip Fraser conceptualized this nearly 30 years ago, and his close friend and writing partner Jeffrey Butscher and him wrote it over 25 years ago. They pounded the pavement and tirelessly made calls, lining up meetings with top studio execs across the board! They rose ears, and curried interests with near green lit scenarios on multiple occasions, paving the way for Pirates of the Caribbean, and other Buccaneering pictures.

This is a true testament of perseverance and follow through. This is a passionate hardworking understudy Craig Albrecht from Nebraska having this in his Pitch quiver for over two decades, and a crossover to Director Rick Spalla seeing the vision and raising the funding to bring wholesome fun loving entertainment to his breakout directorial debut.

Time Crafters "Treasure of Pirates Cove" is a family creative legacy, with cameos and names dear to us. This is "Never Giving Up!" This is my first time seeing myself on the big screen, and before Covid hit was supposed to be that way for anyone across the planet that bought a ticket. Now everyone can see it, everyone can share it. Please pop the popcorn ice your beverage, gather the friends and family and enjoy a contribution that has a history that means something. Thank you for reading this, thank you for sharing, and Never Giving Up!

A Fun Ride That's Worth Watching

This movie definitely delivers some laughs, has good acting and, although lacking in proficient cinematography, the directing is solid so that keeps the ship in one piece.
