Movieing On #8: Stand By Me

41 mins - Published Wed, Jul 11, 2012 by Breki Tomasson, Jack Marshall and Jon Shute

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.

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.

If you want to get in touch with the people behind the episode or talk to others who like it, feel free to join the CSICONauts chat room. Alternatively, you can find some of this episode's hosts and/or guests on Twitter: Breki Tomasson, Jack Marshall and Jon Shute.
