  1. One of my favorite films of all time. Most definetly my favorite coming-of-age film of all time An absolute classic.

    I can’t wait for this film to be released on Blu-Ray. I will be getting it for sure.

    My favorite scene from Stand By Me… hmmm, it’s hard to narrow one down. I think it would have to be the milk money scene. Where Chirs breaks down to Gordy. It’s just such a beautiful scene, and the performance Reiner was able to get out of these kids was really highlighted in this scene. My second favorite scene would be a tie between the train scene and the chopper chasing gordy scene. Oh and the famous line that Gordy says to Ace when he is holiding the gun up to him “Suck my fat one you cheap dime store hood” Classic!
