The Mist
gross, Monster

Oh my God! I cannot believe how bad that movie is.  I mean, I heard it was bad and I certainly don't expect a lot from Stephen King novels, but this has to be the worst one I've seen.  

In the special features Stephen King and the director are talking like they've just done something wonderful together.  Did they not see the finished product?  Or any of the product?  *shudder*

I can't believe I didn't tell you to never, ever watch that movie. I paid $3.99 to watch it on Pay Per View last month on a night I was wiped out tired and really wanted to relax and just enjoy what I thought would be a slightly cheesy (Stephen King movie after all) perhaps slightly campy escapism movie. Instead I was traumatized by the most horrible movie ending ever. I mean ever.

Hate that movie with the passion of a 1000 burning suns, and you know what I usually reserve that level of hate for.

If it's any consulation, even if you had told me, I probably would have thought it was just the typical really crappy Stephen King ending. All of his books end shitty. I would have been wrong, because, of course, this was the worst ending of his I've seen. But I still would've thought that.

Someone really needs to stop the man from writing anymore. He's obviously lost his mind.

Did you know the book had a different ending? The screen writer thought up the movie ending in all of its hidiousness, and King loved and approved it.


You're right, I think he's finally lost his mind.

Do I want to know what the original ending was? I always seem to hate King's endings, but then it pisses me off when they change them for a movie/mini-series (Tommyknockers is a prime example.) Crappy ending or not, that's the way the book ended, this is a movie/whatever of the book. End it like the freakin' book, assholes.

Seriously, he's starting to make me think of my grandma right before she was diagnosed with AZ. She thought the things she was saying/seeing/doing made perfect sense.

I don't have to put it under a cut, right?

As I understand it the book's ending was ambiguous, but no one died. The father (I've already wiped my brain of character names) fiddles with the radio and hears some static/voices and then fade to black. I haven't read it for myself, but I went looking for spoilers/endings to the book and that's what I found on IMDB.

I can see the comparison to your Grandma.

Well, I can't say I'd've been thrilled with the book ending, but it's about 1000% better than the movie ending.

Nice icon. *g* Pretty boy.
