Stand By Me

The-Sandlot

What’s more amazing/disturbing, that The Sandlot is turning 20 years old or that it didn’t open in the summertime? One generation’s beloved celebration of baseball and coming of age opened on April 9, 1993. That’s a couple weeks from now, but we figured we’d highlight the occasion early because a special anniversary Blu-ray hits stores this Tuesday. Let’s look back. Unforgiven had just won Best Picture. We were more than a month into the Waco siege. Snow’s “Informer” was pushing through its first month as the #1 single in America. While the adults were off watching Indecent Proposal the same weekend, their children were seeing The Sandlot, yet it really built its audience on video and through constant TV play over the two decades that followed. How has it struck a chord with so many people when it’s really just a rehash of Stand By Me with a more family friendly plot and James Earl Jones playing a character a little too reminiscent of his role in Field of Dreams? Below are some of the scenes that have stood out for us all these years, and we invite you to share your own favorite moment from the movie down below.

Abrams is back with a tribute to everything he loved when he was just Jefferey. If you plan on catching Super 8, here are 3 films you should watch with it.

Movies We Love: Stand By Me

There was a time when Rob Reiner’s name being mentioned meant that there was a project we should watch out for; in a good way. Stand By Me is one of the big reasons that was so and is one of the best films of its kind, no matter what kind of film you categorize it as.
