Anybody seen this Stephen King movie which recently came out on DVD ? Is it worth buying and what is the picture quality like ?

IMHO - pants.

Chance for a good story to unfold until you 'see' the reason for it all.

I'm not going to spoil the film for you as you may really like it. However, it's like a made for TV type of film, which it seems what Stephen King seems to be churning out left, right and centre these days.

I rented it. A beer helped with the pain.:D

It's not what Stephen King himself is churning out....the book Dreamcatcher is superb imho...

The story would not have been out of place on a X Files or Outer Limits program.
I wouldn't recommend buying it, but its not that terrible if you like that sort of thing.

I'll add another vote to the utter bile catagory - two hours of my life I'll never get back (and the obsessive compulsive in me can't turn a film I've started watching off :mad:).

The first half was pretty good but it seemed like the second half was made by a different person. The actors all do their best but the ending is without question terrible. Shame, as the cast is strong & Lawrence Kasdan is a good director.

Rent it first before buying.

Yeh, I'd agree with that. I rented it. Thought it was worth buying though after I had watched it.

I thought it was a great movie, its not excellent but definetly worth watching. So funny and wierd.
Its like a mixture of Alien(s),Sixth Sense and Starship Troopers.
Id say buy it after it gets a little cheaper and then ebay it.

Was almost tempted to buy it unseen, given the Director and Screenwriter. Lawrence Kasdan and William Goldman usually deliver the goods...

:confused:

Rented this the other night because it had morgan freeman in it and was based on a stephen king story.

What a mistake, it was absoloutely dire, so pointless, boring and disjointed, its like it was made for a joke because it was just so bad. It started off like there was going to be something interesting but ended up some dreadful low budget piece of nonsense.

Total agree with '2manyconsoles) rented last week, Stephen King story, Morgan Freeman & chubby guy out of Heat & Saving Private Ryan.
Got to be worth a watch I thought, wrong.
Don't waste your money renting it or buying it!

Absolutely terrible pile of sh*te.

even worse than "league of extraordinary actors":clown:

Arghhhh, bought this film only 2 weeks ago and haven't watched it yet. I really must stop impulse buying and research first.
the only good thing about it is that this film has finally made me rent films I haven't seen first before buying them.
