ULTIMATE 80s MOVIES: Stand By Me

This has to be my favourite movie of all time..but I can’t watch it; it reminds me too much of my best mate (we were friends for over 25 years, from boyhood) who died suddenly some ten years ago, and there’s that line at the end, “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12. Jesus, does anyone?” and that line kills me every time. I cry buckets and buckets and can’t stop. So, for that reason I can’t watch it. BUT, there will be a time when I’ll need to show it to my sons….I just know I’ll sit there weeping, watching it with them. What a movie. My absolute favourite.

Here is the trailer…

It really doesn’t matter which decade you grew up in. These guys grew up…
