Stand by Me ★★★★

4K UHD blu ray looks great, maintaining that fantastic 50's inspired filmic look the film always had. Checked this out after listening to Jerry O'Connell turn up on Justin Long's podcast — Life is Short, to talk about his experiences on set. Sounded like Rob Reiner was really keen to ensure the kids rehearsed a tonne to make their friendships believable. Luckily it paid off. Phoenix is the stand out, projecting a wisdom far beyond his years, but all the four kids are solid.
