    Ah ok. Yeah, The Mist is alright, I guess. I'm just being extra rough on it because it's Sunday, I'm bored, and it's fun to shit on things over the internet. :P

    I'd recommend it. It isn't great, but it's Frank Darabont, so it's at the very least competently made. As far as Stephen King horror movies, you could do a lot worse. Plus, the ending is amazing. I'd give it a solid 8 or 7.5 out of 10.

    I thought it was a solid flick until the ending. That ending killed the movie for me.

    I like The Mist a lot. Want to watch the Black & White version.

    The thing I liked was how some of the monsters had human teeth. That one little detail made them about a hundred times more disturbing. I also want a gif of Giant Cthulhu because that thing was awesome. The way he appeared wasn't as entertaining as the chomp scene in Cloverfield, but the overall design was light years better (imo). Maybe even the best I've seen.

    What kept me from taking the ending seriously was
    Spoiler!


    Oh yeah, and just remembered my question about Giant Cthulhu. Wtf would that thing even eat? Whales maybe? It's not as scary once you realize it probably died of starvation twenty minutes after you saw it. Still looked awesome though.

    Really want to see Cloud Atlas, it looks like the type of thing I'd love.

    I like Cloud Atlas as a novel, but I've read too many bad-to-tepid things about the movie, and that trailer did nothing for me.

    As for The Mist's ending, it works for the movie, a nice stinger to cap things off, but I prefer the "into the unknown" ending of the short. Doesn't really matter which one is better since:

    I didn't much like the movie ending, felt like something of a cop out compared to the rest of the movie. A really good adaptation though, pretty much captures how I imagined things would go.

    Apparition was shit.

    I can't believe there are 4 movies out simultaneously at the theater that I actually want to see.

    List them!

    I still need to catch Seven Psychopaths and Argo if they're still around. And Anna Karenina comes out this Friday, which I want to see, though I'll probably wait on it 'til after theatres.

    Sinister was pretty fucked up and bleak.

    Scratch Taken 2 and go see Wreck It Ralph. Haven't seen neither, but from what I hear, Taken 2 is not worth watching in the cinema

    To me, Taken wasn't even worth seeing in the cinema.

  20. #15800
    Yeah, the original Taken is crazily overrated. It's serviceable, but I don't get all the love it garnered.
