It's that time of the month again, where I call Jon Shute and Jack Marshall for another episode of Movieing On! This week, Rob Reiner's 1986 cult classic Stand by Me!
Based on Stephen King's Short story The Body; Stand By Me tells the tale of Gordie Lachance (played by Wil Wheaton), a writer who looks back on his preteen days when he and three close friends went on their own adventure to find the body of a kid their age who had gone missing and presumed dead. The stakes are upped when the bad kids in town are closely tailing - and it becomes a race to see who'll be able to recover the body first.
