We have just finished both reading and watching the Outsiders movie in class. I thought the movie was an excellent adaptation of the book. I know it cut out a lot, but the thing is that there are a lot of deleted scenes in the movie, that they originally filmed. I haven't bought the dvd yet, but i have been looking into it, and it's definitly worth the buy. When i read the book i fell in love with it, and then i watched the movie and now i love it even more.It's a fantastic story that i think everyone deserves to see. The actors capture it very well, i thought they did an excellent job.Usually, I prefer the book a whole lot more then the movie, but this time, i think i like the movie better. It gives you a better view of everything going on, even though you don't get the narroration like in the book, or as much detail.Though, just seeing these actors act it all out, it's amazing.
