The Outsiders the Complete novel

The Outsiders the Complete Novel is out on Blu-Ray. (It has been on DVD for a while.) This is about 23 minutes longer than the original theatrical version. It is pretty good. Director Francis Ford Copella revised the movie in 2005.

This is based on the classic novel by S. E. Hinton. It is set in 1965 Tulsa. There are greasers, poor kids from the North side and the rich kids, the Socs, from the South side. They hate each other.

This movie has a really good cast. Ralph Macchio is really good as the scared Johnny. C. Thomas Howell was good as Poneyboy. Diane Lane was the major actress in the movie. Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze, and Rob Lowe all co-star. Matt Dillion looks shockingly young.

I haven’t seen the original movie in a few years, so I can’t say how much better this version is. There is a good review on DVD Verdict. Apparently Robb Lowe’s character Sodapop comes across better in this version.
