Stephen King - Page 2

post #31 of 73
I just completed night #2 of Rose Red and been as it's concluding
on Thursday at the same time as CSI, I'll probably opt for CSI.
I just am not getting into, usually I like King movies.

I don't know, but I watched it tonite for the first time and I thought it was pretty cool...

I was wondering who that person was too

One band-aid? Not a Schwartzenegger film then...he just bleeds.

Hmmm,getting an idea.. Arnie and Bruce are doing combat with evil dimensions these days. Now if we combine your plot with mine......hmmmmmmm. Arnie could be the limo driver who comes to the rescue..posibly as an undercover Justice Dept agent who is spying on the business woman (it'll turn out to be her whiny assistant who's the real criminal). Bruce can be the farmer/fisherman with the M-16 (we'll have to work a rocket launcher in there somehow).
Jack N can be the house...C'mon Deb,gimme a hand with casting here.

We may have a new hit script on our hands here.

Yeah, I can't think of the name of the house. It's down in Lakewood?, closer to Tacoma. It's not like haunted or anything, just an old mansion. All that other stuff is special effects and add ons. There is a house like that in real life though, it doesn't change, but it has stairways to nowhere and all this crazy stuff. It's supposed to be haunted. I think it's the Remington or Winchester (one of the gun families) house somewhere in California.

And yes, he died during filming, which caused a whole lot of craziness. Very unexpected too, just had a heart attack during a tennis match, I think. They used a voice match and a look a like and tried to film him far off and use editing and a few script changes.

I don't know what it is, but stuff like that intrigues me so much!
I mean the house with stairs that lead to nowhere! Certainly not the poor guy that died...
post #36 of 73
Ali- which character is he??
post #37 of 73
I have heard of the house you are talking about. It's a house where the building construction went on for many years and it's called the Winchester House. Here is some information about it from another website:

"Many mysteries surround this surreal mansion. There are a hundred and sixty rooms in this house, many having unique features such as windows looking into other rooms, doors opening outside from the third floor, and various sizes of doors. 'Why' one might ask; the reason is quite simple. After Sarah Winchester's husband and child died in 1884, she went to try to contact their spirits, she wanted to know what to do concerning the ghosts of all the people that had been killed by the Winchester rifle. She was unable to contact her family, but was instructed to incessantly add rooms to the house to constantly confuse the unfriendly spirits. When the earthquake of 1906 struck she was pinned in a room. Building continued and she was never seen again. Today residents hear ghostly music emanating from the house. Many other strange activities have been reported as well."

I will definitely be watching Thursday night because I have a lot of questions that I hope get answered. Like what in the world happened to the character who feels objects (I think her name is Pam). They showed her being led by the older psychic (writer) woman to the fountain with the statues of Mrs. Rembauer and April and she goes into the water. Then before the older man has a heart attack he sees her dead in the fountain but when he goes in only her night gown is in there. What happened to the older woman (the psychic writer), the last thing I saw, she was in her bed but in the morning when a lot of different things are going on with the others you never see her. And what in the world is up with those statues and the fact that the outside of the house is haunted too. Usually with these haunted house movies the people are safe outside. If my questions don't get answered Thursday I will be highly disappointed.

Hi Sabra

From what I see, the whole grounds are haunted too ...kinda eerie 'eh! :LOL: More goblins lurking in the bushes :laughing2:

Actually, I thought it quite interesting the way it's set up. I guess we'll see the conclusion soon enough... I only caught the second one last nite ;( bummer....I hope someone recorded it. I'd like to see it all the way through. That little girl (I can't even remember her name, the telekenetic) she's a chilling feature to the whole story!!

OKay well, of course when I haven't been here in a couple of days a thread gets started like this.... go figure...anyway, I LOVE Stephen King, seen every movie, read every book (at least twice) every short story.. heck I have every hard cover book in print, except for his newest collaboration, adn the Rose Red Diary, which hopefully I'll get for my B'day (hint hint San)..

I've been enthralled with Rose Red, mostly because I know how he likes to hide things in his movies along with referencing at least one or two other books that he's written in the past. Ya'll know he always plays a part in his movies right??? In this case he was the Pizza delivery guy, small part, but he's in every single one.

Just so happens that one of my old student used to live down the street from him, so I got his address and the directions. Haven't made itr there yet, but one day, I'll just get some pix of his house. that would be cool.

I can't wait for the Thursday show, it will answer lots of questions, as he always does, and probably open up a few more....

post #42 of 73
Too bad that wasn't in March...I'll be in NY taking care of some minor details...oh well, I guess I can always contribute.... *sigh*

post #43 of 73
if I end up going, I'm going to get the $150 option to get Kings autograph.....if you want to kick in the extra $100 for the second book I'll get you one signed also
post #44 of 73
Sure, but I'll have to think about which book, thanks, that will be the toughie...I think "The Stand" ....give me a couple of days to think about it and I'll getcha the cash.

In final 5 minutes, he manages to catch/kill opposing forces under extreme duress. Emerges virtually unscathed, gets girl, and spends not one second in hospital, as he is no worse the wear for his adventures, save perhaps one Band-Aid.

Hahahaha! Deb....you forgot the farting, theres always alot of farting in guy flicks...

I watched last nights episode, and I thought it was great! I too have alot of unanswered questions, though...but hopefully Thursday night will clear it up!!!
I would love an autographed book, but I don't think I'd better shell out the money, there are other things I need worse.

But when was the last time ANYONE heard Arnold, or Jet or any other guy flick person fart in the movies????? You ONLY hear that in CHICK flick in order to ease the boredom of men DRAGGED to them by their (as AP puts it) SO's...

You also forgot 1 VERRRRRRY important part of a guy flick...
The impossibly young looking female character that gives barbie a run for her money, with little or no lines (doesn't matter cuz who listening anyway) that always manages to have some article of clothing missing during those points at which there is no bone breaking, weapon reloading, blood spilling or car exploding...

Sheesh... get your facts straight goils, it's painfully obvious that you guys aren't subjected to as many guy flicks as we are chick flicks.. I mean really it's happenned so often, that there is even a recognized name...... CHICK FLICK..

Neener Neener
post #49 of 73
Yeah, well dig what we "goils" call guy flicks: *d**k flics* or *d***less flics* :laughing2

post #50 of 73
hehe CAT..you know, Ive always had a name for guy flix...its called PORN- you know- where the guy NEVER gets too naked, but the "goil" is spread eagle?
post #51 of 73
How does one get "too" naked in a porn flick... although Ive never seen one, I would imagine that it's a bit impossible... kinda like being alittle bit pregnant...

As for the names Cat has for guy flicks... hey man... whatever your into.....

Hey AP

If I can come up with the cash, and if your going, then I would love it... gotta check with the Joint account owner though.. ya know..

Ken, it was just a joke, and I was just speaking from experience with my hubby and his "guy" flicks...if someone is farting or something is being blown up...he loves it. Sorry if I offended.
post #53 of 73

I know that you, of all people, would be the last one to offend anyone.. I knew it was a joke, as was mine.. bsides which, what ever reason in the world would I have to get mad at you????? Ever....

Besides... I love a bombing myself.... kinda partial to blood spilling though..

(I love this little ...... thingies....)

The only to books that I have read by Stephen King is Firestarter(The girl who sets things on fire!) and It. I never really finished It because it scared me very badly! I can't watch the movies because I scare easily.
post #55 of 73
You should try Dream Catcher... It's not really scary and can be a bit slo in the beginning, but the story is good...

post #56 of 73
did you like dreamcatcher? I really didn't care for it much. I thought it was one of his weaker books.
post #57 of 73
Now, I went to King's webpage and I looked at all his work. I remember one book I've read but wasn't scary at all. It was the Eyes of the Dragon, a medival novel. It was okay. anybody read it?
post #58 of 73
I thought it waas VERY hard to get into, and it stayed likr that until about 3/4 of the way into it, but it got better, although the ending wasn't one of his best... all things considered, I'd have to agree with you.

post #59 of 73
That book originaly started out as an on-going fairy tail for his daughter. I didn't much like because it wasn't his typical work, although I thought the story was good.
