    I picked up the blu-ray this weekend and the film looks fantastic on blu-ray. There is an additional commentary from Rob Reiner, Cory Feldman and Wil Wheaton for the blu-ray edition. This commentary was done especially for the blu-ray release. The featurette (with SK) and original commentary from the dvd are included also. There is also a music video of Ben E King singing Stand By Me. I can't remember if that was on the original dvd or not. It's amazing how good those boys are in this movie, especially River Phoenix and Wil Wheaton.

    Wil Wheaton is particularly good here... What happened to him? I know he did star trek, but after that? Phoenix was phenomenal as well. Aptly accompanied by Feldman and the dude that's married to Mystique.

    In some ways it seems like a simple story but it goes a lot deeper the more I think of it.............and the end line in the movie has to be the saddest ever.........



    I never had friends like the ones I did when I was 12 ...........Christ who has?
    I also loved this movie, and agree that it was extremely close to the novella. But did anyone notice the money difference? In the movie all the amounts were the same as they were in the story, but Gordy had the largest amount. In the novella Chris is the one who has the most. Did they change it on screen because movie-goers wouldn't believe a poor white trash kid like Chris shouldn't have more money than a respectible kid like Gordie?

    I really loved the scene at the end where,I think it was Vern,the chubby kid,is walking home and stops to pick up a penny on the road,signifiying life is back to normal.The adventure is already a long time ago,in the eyes of a 12 year old.

    I liked him in Star Trek also. Not sure what he is doing now, but he is on twitter a lot.

    The older I get. The more I miss that sense of adventure of being young. This movie gets played about once a week in my home.

    I love this movie. My Grandma worked in a library that had a small movie section to rent out and she would always bring some home when we were visiting and she would bring some with her when she came to visit us. She brought Stand by Me when she came to visit once and my sister and I LOVED it immediately. We probably watched it 10 times that weekend. We even got the soundtrack and some music to play on the piano from it. We were younger so imagine my surprise when I found out that King wrote the story!

    I had it on VHS, I currently have it on DVD and I absolutely think that it will be purchased on Blu Ray soon.
