Has anyone else seen this Movie?

I thought it was absolutely brilliant and I watched it this morning.

Mums probably one of Stephen Kings biggest fans, I'll have to get her to see this movie.

couple years though. The books extremely good too!

Kathy Bates won an Oscar for that movie.

Stephen King has often said that he writes his nightmares. For an author, and obsessed fan would be a nightmare.

Kathy Bates in "Misery" and Jack Nicholson in "The Shining" are the two best horror-movie crazies, ever. I know that they've done a comedy together but can you see them teaming up, in a horror movie?

I should write my nightmares and maybe I will be as successful as this man!

I've read almost all of Stephan King's books and they usually don't turn into movies well, but Misery and The Shining were the best of the bunch. Rented The Dreamcatcher over the weekend and that was pretty good, although they crammed the last half of the book into the last 15 minutes of the movie. I like to read the book before I see the movie so I can fill in the blanks.

I have read all of Stephen King's books and seen all of the movies that are based on his books. Believe me the books are much better than the movies He is a brillant writer!

You'll have to read it but I totally
cringed when I read what she does in

I don't want to ruin it for anyone who
hasn't read it yet.

I know the book is always better than the movie

Stephen King is my favorite author and I agree with everybody that the movies are unsuccessful in portraiting the true horror in his books.

I would have to agree that the book is SO much better than the movie. It's not a bad movie for being based on a Stephen King novel - definitely one of the better ones. And I'd have to say, crushing his foot in the movie is nothing compared to what really happens. I was quite let down in that particular part.

Ok, my morbid sense of curiousity is getting the better of me- since I haven't read the book, can someone who has PM me and tell me what she does in the book if she doesn't crush his feet?

PM'd you, Melissa.

Yeah.. I loved this movie!

Mum has the whole collection of books.. But I aint going near them, if the books are scarier than the movies!

Yeah the feet scene made me cringe as well, and also when he chucked the typewrite on her head..

Wow! Gosh he writes his nightmares, incredible man!

I thought Bate's performance was top-notch. She gave me the chills watching her go from sweet to insane in 0 to 60! "I KNOW THAT MISTER MANN!! HE DIDN"T GET OUT OF THE :censor::censor::censor::censor:-A-DOODY CAR!!" Oh yeah, this movie is a classic!!

cuts off Paul Sheldon's thumb with an electric knife, and then she hacks off a foot with an AXE!! EWWW! and I thought the movie was gross in the "alternate" scene. I cringe and look away every single time I see that part coming up (where she breaks his ankles with a sledge hammer) Shudder!

IMO Misery and The shining are the best of the King novels turned movies. Others worth renting....The Stand and It. The worst??? has to be Pet Cemetary or Maximum Overdrive ( but that one did have a comedy factor!)
post #21 of 22
I thought Misery was one of the better Steven King films, too. The Shawshank Redemption was probably my favorite, though, and I loved The Stand and The Shining.
