The Outsiders - Comments and Message Board

i disagree i think the extended edition is marvellous + much better than the original, it brings out the brotherly bonds + virtually restores rob lowes character sodapop, the middle sensitive brother. although it was great on the original the music on 'the complete novel' is more preppy and brings the movie alive. dont get me wrong i love the original version but all round i think the extended edition is by far the best. well done francis :)

I completely agree- I watched the original so many times when it first came out, and was excited for the dvd disc release. I nearly cried when I heard the new music and how it changed the tone of the scenes. While Ponyboy is being held under water- (a scene that once made me afraid for his life while dissonant cords served the perfect amount of anxiety and tension) the music has been replaced with hotrod surf music that is campy and almost funny. In the scene where he and Dallas get into the argument in the house and then he runs out into the night to johnny's place- the music has gone from fear to rock and roll /surf tunes again. Erasing the fear and aloneness that had once been present. The ending - music change- when Matt Dillon is on the hill- is unforgivable. I used to cry in that scene and instead felt embarrased. I will continue to watch the old edition. The new version only offered some details that were redundant.
