Explorers : Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

I saw it when I was just a kid...I just remember a group of kids, a basketball ball beating on a wall, a garden with labyrinthine form from where the kids "travel" to a forest, then I can remember a suspending bridge, and a dinosaur (made with stop motion) onto the forest, my last memento is a kind of bathtub forehead the sea (!)...
One detail more I can add: the biped dinosaur had a horn on his head...

I remember that I saw it about 1995 on the argentinian 13 TV channel, but I'm very sure that the film was done on the 80'... thanks...

I hope someone help me, sorry my bad english, I'm from Argentina.

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

Tal vez es uno de estos:
"Labyrinth" with David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly.
"Legend" with a young(before Top Gun) Tom Cruise and Mia Sara.

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

Gracias Three-amigos, but I can say that the one I'm searching is not "Labyrinth" or "Legend" ... you can read others replies here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089218/board/thread/131324187?d=131324187&p=1#131324187

Could it be 'Mio in the Land of Faraway'?

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

Thanks King, But mio is not the film I'm looking for. Here are more clues:

...As I can recall, were all male children ...

The maze was actually the garden of an elderly person (a woman I think), where they entered without permission, so they were crawling (crouching down)stealthily so as not to be seen ...

When I say "Bathtub forehead the sea" I mean some sort of bath, lavatory basin or small pool, where is one of the boys, this happens on a beach facing the sea and at the end of the movie...

Thanks again, and sorry my frengly.com english

The beach bit at the end just made me think of little monsters staring Fred Savage!

"I mean i just wanted to leave,you know my apartment,meet a nice girl and now ive gotta die for it"

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

I remember it TOO!!!
Somehow (don't ask me why!!!) I think it was Canadian production...
Maybe it will help!
Yap... children, dinosaur, deeeep forest, fire, night, dinosaur...
Anyone???

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

It sounds like Troll, but I know it's not.

In Troll (1986) they go into the forest inside an older woman's (June Lockhart) apartment. But that was a boy and a girl, not all boys.

Other than that, google "Sleestak" and see if that's the biped dinosaur you are talking about.

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

My first thought was Time Bandits but I don't think that's right. Hmm...

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!

Yeah that's what the description reminded me of as well. Especially with the ship on top of the giant's head.

Re: Help please!! … I'm searching Gooniesque 80's film!!
