The movie reflected Old Stevie King's ability to do that particularly well. His observations on childhood are so "tapped in" that it makes you wonder if he has direct communication with his younger self.
I feel what made stand by me so great was the narration.Of all his movies I
I feel a big part of what made it so great was the narration.The movie could never have been so perfect without it.What made the narration so great? The actual words of the wordslinger. When you think about it, Stand by me had more words taken directly from the original book that any other SK movie anyone ever made.the narration allows you to enjoy the story the way it was meant to be.If they make the Dark Tower into a movie,i would love to see it narrated.
There have been a lot of great SK movies, but to me hands down this is the best. Perfectly written, perfectly directed, and perfectly cast. I hate when filmmakers take a book and twist it to their liking, but Rob Reiner embraced the novella and took it to a whole new level.
Got a poster of this by my bed...awesome awesome movie. And it has a small scene with John Cusack, what more could you ask for?
It was so good I wanted to stay for the next showing when it came out. Couldn't have all the details crammed in there-but Frank and Rob did their damndest. Still, the story is always my first love...
Being English, and having been born here, I love this film, because it confirmed to me that American kids had wonderfully free and roaming childhoods. I love this film, it is my all time favourite of any I have seen. I'm sure not all American childhoods were REALLY like that depicted in the film, but when I first saw it years ago I imagined it was. I wished I had grown up in a place that had "drug stores", "ice cream parlours", country fairs and scrap yards inviting kids to take their chances with fearsome guard dogs on endlessly hot summer days. I remember my childhood with affection also, but it allways seemed to be cold, wet, dark, and surrounded by "homework".......
Family Classic! Great for anyone to watch. Rob Reiner was a great director for this movie. All the actors did a wonderful job in this movie. I believe this movie will be great in a year, 20 years, and even a century. This movie is one of Stephen King's best adaptions.:grinning:
:oo:....:glare:...scusa se mi impiccio ma tuo marito ha ragione!!!!il film è molto bello ma x cambiare un po fagli vedere IT e shining!...scherzo,ciao
I noticed this is a movie most ages enjoy. We have all sat down as a family and watched. I see the realness of how kids act.
