    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Good movie. Sad but interesting. Followed the book really closely. These groups of kids are part of the poor and they are called the greasers and the super rich kids are called the socs. They are always fighting and causing problems. In the end some of the kids die but it also brings the family closer together. good book and movie.

    Holy balls, what an insane cast this thing has. Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez...and a sweet little tune by Stevie Wonder. Not to mention Coppola pulling off some insane deep focus camera shots.

    Basic plot from imdb: "A teen gang in rural Oklahoma, the Greasers are perpetually at odds with the Socials, a rival group. When Greasers Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell) and Johnny (Ralph Macchio) get into a…

    The Outsiders is directed by Francis Ford Coppola and is based off of S.E. Hinton's classic novel of the same name. The basic plot of this movie is that there are two rivalry gangs. These two gangs are the rich Socs and the poor Greasers. Everything heats up between these two groups when a member of one of the gangs kills a member of the other gang.

    This is an ensemble cast type of movie. This movie stars C. Thomas…

    Timeless classic about friendship and cliques. It still gets a little dusty toward the end. Stay gold.

    A rather bleak tale of gang warfare getting out of hand. Two opposing teenage gangs, the 'greasers' and 'soashes', pretty much can't stand the sight of each other. At any given opportunity they're more than happy to have a bundle and eventually blood is spilt. The film deals with the consequences and is largely morally ambiguous...neither side comes out of it particularly well although the film wants our sympathies to rest with two of the more likable youths.

    This has…

    Coppola displays immense sensibility in telling a tale of friendship, loss and teenage angst in the middle of 50s America. In the surface, an exploration of the rebellion of youth, but deep down a study of the responsibility we all share towards those we love. The scene mixing "Gone With the Wind" with "Nothing Gold Can Stay" is heartbreaking.

    We watch this in school a few days ago I just had to add this in. It's a wonderful movie, containing many obstacles. S.E. Hinton envisioned this book to be a hit and it definitely was! The right amount of suspense to keep you on your feet!

    Another 'iconic' movie that's not actually particularly great. The incredible cast are quite badly underused and I didn't really care much for any of their characters (except Johnny). This is probably due to the pretty poor pacing and lack of real character development. Also the soundtrack is often distracting, overpowering some scenes to the point of ruining their intended effect. Let's just say that the direction in this is a far cry from that on show in any of Coppola's…

    I think The Outsiders does two things right:
    1. It sort of understands the misguided aggression that comes from being a teenager
    2. It cast an impressive amount of future stars.

    And that's about it.

    I had absolutely no interest in any of the characters, which is a shame since there are so many characters and rarely is anything done with them. The film basically equates to teenagers fighting over dumb things, one character does something heroic that causes even…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    The Outsiders carries a large reputation in my home due to it carrying some of the 80s most beloved stars, a decade that is dearly cherished by all members of this household, and it is repeatedly stated through my sister, who is slowly becoming a passionate film buff herself, that it is one of her most favourite of films. I believe The Outsiders for her is what A Clockwork Orange is for me, a film and…
