    Synopsis


    The Outsiders
    Teen rivalry in a small Southern town sets the stage for this dramatic interpretation of the novel by S.E. Hinton. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, The Outsiders tells the story of the ongoing conflict between the Greasers and the Socs in rural Oklahoma. C. Thomas Howell stars as Ponyboy, the youngest of three orphaned boys who pal around with the local hoods known as the Greasers. When Ponyboy and his friend (Ralph Macchio) get into a deadly confrontation one night, the two go on the run from the cops, and they grow up quickly and soon realize the insignificance of their petty posturing. Matt Dillon stars as the tough-as-nails leader of their group and Patrick Swayze appears as Ponyboy's oldest brother. A host of other 1980s Brat Pack celebs fill out the cast. Dillon later appeared in another Coppola adaption of a Hinton book, Rumble Fish. ~ Bernadette McCallion, Rovi

      A Great Classic 80s Teen Movie

      I grew up in the 80's and this was "the" movie amongst my pre-teen friends and I. I had read the book in school and the movie stayed true to the story line. I recently ordered the DVD so my daughter could watch because she also read the book in school. I was surprised, for a movie made in the 80's, she actually liked it quite a bit. The story really hits home even to this day when kids are so quick to judge other kids just for the way they grew up or what they wear to school, add to that a group of boys full of testosterone just ready to prove how tough they are. Really a great classic 80's teen movie with a story line that really hits home, and also a movie that helped launch the career of several actors including Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, and C.Thomas Howell.. I should also mention how much I love the Stevie Wonder song that really never got the credit it deserved, Stay Gold.

      It is understandable that viewers who became fans of The Outsiders in its original version are disappointed that this DVD contains only "The Complete Novel" . Since Warner is the king of double-dips, here's hoping they release a deluxe edition in the future that includes a second disc with the theatrical cut so that everyone can have their preferred viewing experience. For new viewers, however, I heartily recommend "The Complete Novel". I was impressed by The Outsiders in the shorter cut, but I wasn't truly moved by it until I saw "The Complete Novel". Warner's DVD is an impressive presentation and is highly recommended.

      If you watched this movie and remember your favorite parts, when you watch it again, you realize all those parts was the whole movie. Lol. It's rather short. But ideally makes it good because it doesn't get boring. The talent in this movie is unreal. I actually didn't knw Jessica Lane (find her very attractive), until this last time. Stay gold.

      This is the original version of the Outsiders movie and so much of the story was edited out. The 25th anniversary edition is available with 21 minutes of new footage that follows the novel. Also includes a bonus DVD with conversations with the director and stars. Skip this one and look for the complete novel version.

      Yes, this is the 'director's cut' with additional scenes. The most controversial change is replacement of the original score with rock tunes of the period, which was done by the director. It works better than the original IMHO but not for purists who insist on the original soundtrack.

      For a movie that was made 33 years ago technically on the same year I was born, it definitely shines like crazy on my LG OLED E6 65 inch tv. No distortion issues from editing. It has great audio and decodes well. Its definitely a must have if you want to make your movie library grow.

      This is my favorite movie of all time. The quality of the movie was great. I had a customer service representative from the store order the movie for me and he said it would take 7-10 business day to arrive. Had it in about 3. Most favorite movie of all time and it only cost me $5.99 plus tax. Can't find that at walmart.

      This movie is a classic. I grew up watching this movie and wanted to be a greaser. This bluray contains all of extra scenes that were never shown when it hit the theaters. The only thing I don't like about the extras is the music throughout the movie. Other than that the extra scenes are great!!
