For some, it's the last real taste of innocence, and the first real taste of life. But for everyone, it's the time that memories are made of.

This movie is what Super 8 should have been although I really like Super 8 but when the alien showed up I felt like it turned more into a Sci Fi film and not a drama but Stand by Me is fully realistic and not jammed pack with explosions and special effects

I wanted to like it, but for some reason it just didn't work for me. It has its moments for sure though.

Despite its problems, I find the message very uplifting and I really like the personalities of the characters!
