IMDB: Stand By Me – 1986

IMDB Rating: 8.1/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 91%

A man writes about a journey that he and 3 friends had when they were 12 to see the dead body of a friend in the woods. As he recounts the tale he realizes that he probably won’t ever have friendships that strong again.

A movie starring both River Phoenix, Will Wheaton and Keifer Sutherland (all looking extremely young) is an interesting mix, but it kinda seems to work.

Whilst I didn’t really get drawn into the story, it just kept reminding me of movies like The Apple Dumpling Gang or The Goonies. I would go so far as to say it is good background noise.
