#994 – Stand By Me

Drama

Stand By Me is a great movie. Admittedly the voiceover does seem to be at a tangent most of the time to what’s actually occurring in the narrative, but it’s easy to forgive this, such is the charm of the tale and its four leads.

Watching it again though it’s extremely apparent how talented Phoenix and Feldman were, it’s a sobering thought given the trajectories of their careers and lives. On the other hand, “Lollipop, lollipop, oohooh, a-lollipop…”

#28 – Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Action

The weakest of the original trilogy, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is still unbelievably watchable, with the highlights of the delayed arrival on screen of Dr. Henry Jones Sr, River Phoenix and the well postured, impeccably costumed and hard-edge beauty of Dr. Elsa Schneider.
