Movie Review Monday
The Outsiders, a movie from 1983 that I had shockingly never seen. Husband basically demanded that I watch it so I pushed it to #1 on the queue and watched it this weekend. First of all, everyone who was anyone in the 80s is in this movie: Diane Lane, Leif Garrett, C Thomas Howell, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Tom Cruise, Ralph Macchio... yeah. It's like an 80s version of Magic Mike with all that eye candy. Sadly, it's probably one of the corniest movies I have ever watched and I was practically dying over it. Soces (pronounced So-sh, short for Social I guess) versus the Greasers. Stay gold, Pony Boy. Let's do it for Johnny. I mean, it's real bad. But it's definitely a part of movie history that I am glad I can now say I finally saw. Especially because I once dated a dude they called Ponyboy and I had no idea what that meant until I actually saw this. Wowza.
