    Can't quite get over how over the top this movie was, from the line deliveries to the music cues to the voice over to the floating head of Johnny at the end.

    But what I really can't get over is that this film may have the most awkward looking banner on Letterboxd. Go to the film's page and look at it. There are five of the actors, each one was apparently told to look pained, but they could not wear…

    What I got to say about "The Outsiders" is a good movie. The performances is well done."The whole actor really brings each character to right before your eyes." The directing by Francis Ford Coppola is great. The screenplay is good. The cinematography is good. The score and effects are good as well. "I have to report that "The Outsiders" as a movie really does give the novel justice with respect to the story and characters."

    I re-watched The Outsiders not too long ago and was ready to have an amazing and emotional time after loving it when I was a kid. After doing so I strongly advise that nobody else do the same, because it killed me when I realized that this movie actually kind of sucks.

    The performances are mediocre, the script is often bland (and further proof that dialogue that works in a book doesn't always work in a movie), and it's just…

    I loved this. Just a wonderful depiction of teenage life in the 50's gang culture. Super fun, great soundtrack, great characters and chemistry between all cast members and in the end a really uplifting little movie.

    "jeez, Soda, why's he gotta be like that?"
    "he's just got more troubles than he used to"

    savour the obfuscation, stay gold.

    Exactly Like S.E. Hintons Book

    I had a copy of the book as a preteen - I read it over and over. I loved it so much. Then this film was produced, naturally I had to see it, and IT IS the book on film... word for word, scene by scene - right down to the finest details. The movie was everything I hoped it would be since I was already a big fan of the book.

    The film is…

    I forgot that this movie was as tragic as it is. So interesting to see something that reflects not just a snapshot in the past but a reality that we currently see today re: a division of social classes.

    ALSO - so many good freaking actors in this movie!!!! Did this movie launch those careers or did the director just KNOW?!?!
