Stand By Me

Can I just say that I haven’t gotten the song “Stand By Me” out of my head since I finished watching this movie yesterday afternoon!?! Goodness gracious I don’t think I’ll ever get it out!!

“When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me…. “

I wish I would have seen this movie earlier. So.Stinkin.Good! Those kids were freakin awesome. Crude, vulgar and gross, but awesome! I have never seen kids swear or act like that in my life but it was hilarious to watch them interact. Granted, if one of those were my kid and I caught him acting/speaking that way it’d be a serious problem. And when I say serious problem, I mean sending him off to boot camp, lol! But, for the sake of entertainment, they did an awesome job portraying the parts. It was especially heart warming seeing the kids face the hard decisions in life at such a young age and how they were really there for eachother. Kind of makes you think about kids who really do have rough lives like that...

I don’t  feel like there is much else of a review to give, it simply was a great film. A few quotes I did pick up though…

“This is SO Boss”

“Your ass is GRASS” (my personal favorite and one that I will be using constantly now!)

I almost forgot… you call that thing a computer (shown at the end scene)? Wowzers.

I give this movie an A+++

  1. I agree, Stand By Me is a very good movie. I've seen it but I'll have to watch it again.

    I can just imagine hearing you yell "YOUR ASS IS GRASS!" in a Reach game. Ha!
