Stand by Me
A first-rate ballad to boyhood friendships. The young cast is absolutely magnificent in their parts, Sutherland does solid work as an antagonistic older kid. The Oscar-nominated screenplay, based upon Stephen King's short story, expertly delves into the fears and issues faced by young boys at that time. Under Reiner's direction, this is an emotional, humorous and well-studied film about the universal theme of friendship. I give it a 4.5/5.
stand by me
every time i see this film the memories came flooding back. this was my past, right up there on the screen. i new every one of those boys, back in the late 50s and early1960s. in small town ajax ontario. every moment, every scene was dead on. the fudging (taking off for days unknown) the language, smoking, wild ideas for having fun. picking on each other, but there for each other if things went bad (and there were times when god knows they did go bad) recently ive tryed to go back and find some of those guys, but like the film says, in the end,you cant go home (back). thanks to brilliant films like this you can sit, laugh, cry and most of all remember.
Love, Love, Love
I love this film for several reasons, and on several levels. It is the pre-coming-of-age story of 4 boys, about 12, one of whom grows up to be a writer, and he narrates the story. One of the boys, played by Jerry O'Connell, overhears a conversation between some teenager tough guys, one of whom discovered the body of a missing boy, but who couldn't report his discovery because he was driving a stolen car. The boys decide to become heros for finding the body, but encounter several adventures along the way. The 1950's clothes, scenes and especially the music evoke nostalgia, as do the references to shell shocked WWII veterans, vicious junkyard dogs, trying to figure out what kind of animal Goofy was, the theme song to "Palladin", poor kids who always got blamed when something is missing, and steam engines, among other things of the period. Very much worth seeing.
Stand By Me (1986)
Rob Reiner's direction is excellent, very sensitive and poignantly done. It's perfectly cast and everyone is excellent, particularly River Phoenix. Wonderfully written, believable told. Great cinematography, excellent feeling for the period.
I love this movie!
This is the most amazing movie in the world (:
