2011-07-08 [Sideways]: Stephen King's work is too cerebral for film. Too much takes place in thought sequences And allegory for it to translate to film. Also, Dreamcatcher was a 400 page novel, and it fucking rocked, read it. Read the book.
The movie was suprisingly faithful to the book. Amazingly so. Which is why it failed. Tis like trying to spin gold from lead.
So yes, movie was a good effort, but it failed.
2011-07-08 [Sideways]: So please don't bash one of the greatest fiction writers of our last century, even if it's just by association, without doing your homework. It makes you look bad.
2011-07-09 [Akayume]: I never said Stephen King was bad. I said the movie was bad. Which it was. I'm not quite sure what the problem is here?
