Dig it, my nursing program included certain instructional movies, one of which was Stand By Me (another was Who's Life Is it Anyway?). We watched Stand By Me because it described four distinct developmental childhood levels. I post this simply because my nursing program was possibly my first sK encounter!
There is probably somebody who didn't enjoy Stand By Me, but it's one of my favorites....definitely one of SK's greatest movies.
Yep, it's right up there with the movie adaptations of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. All 3 are in my top 10 favourite movies' list.
This is truly one of my favorite movies of all time. I agree with the previous post that said only Reiner and Darabout should adapt King movies. I hate how his work gets butchered in on screen adaptions. However, it is those sometimes quirky and mindbogling adaptions that make love watching them. I know what to expect and I look forward to it good or bad.
Love the movie. Wil Wheaton rocks LOL I also was upset that they moved it from Castle Rock, ME to Oregon. I heard they did it so people wouldn't think it was just another SK horror movie. BOO HOO! And making Gordie wear a Yankees hat. Shame on you, Reiner! I know you're a Yankees fan but King sure isn't!
Fantastic movie, there are truly not enough plaudits to be given to this movie Reiner did a superb job with his direction and the kids were the absolute stars. Ace Merrill must get a special mention for never have I undeniably despised a character on screen than that man haha. It always annoyed me when he took his brothers yankee cap .. it annoyed me that we never found out what happened to it ... just a little thing but still annoying
I totally agree, especially regarding Darabont and Reiner, and hoe well Misery was handled in my opinion. I love this film!
I watched Stand by Me this weekend. I think it's a great movie, one of the best SK adaptations. I enjoyed watching it so much!
I concur that this movie was awesome.
