New film based on Joe Hill's novel.
I loved the book, and I hope this lives up to it!
Watched this a few days ago. Book was definitely better, and they left a lot of stuff out of the movie...understandable, as they obviously couldn't fit everything into the film. The biggest most jarring change however is one they made to a particular character, practically re-writing them all together. If anyone who has read the book and sees the film, you will know who I'm referring to. Acting was good all around, but I dunno...for some reason, I found the film to be just ok. It was kinda boring to be honest. Just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.
thought it was OK, nothing special.
I enjoyed it. That was the first movie where I didn't hate Daniel Radcliffe.
Quite darkly funny. More a mystery than a horror though. Maybe I'll revisit one day. I don't see it holding up to repeat viewings. Reminded me of Raimi's The Gift a bit...
I've never read the book, but I really loved the movie. This wasn't high on my must see list this year, but I defiantly came out more than satisfied.
I started reading the book, but couldn't finish it. As for the movie, I'll wait for NetFlix.
I really enjoyed it although I never read the book. The CG was not that great in some scenes though.
One of my favorites of the year.
I watched this a few nights back and enjoyed it. It was entertaining and decent but I wouldn't call it one of my favorites of the year.
One nitpick I do have is that it is never explained in the film why he gets the horns. I'm not sure if that's explained in the book but it felt odd to me in the film.
I wasn't really expecting much from this. I had tried reading the book, but just couldn't get into it. But as for the movie, I ended up loving it. I thought it was very well done, great cast, beautiful locations, strong production values. It's a very watchable movie. The finale maybe goes on a bit too long, but for the most part I really enjoyed it.
Kind of fun to see Heather Graham in a variation of her Twin Peaks role. Actually, the entire movie did give me a bit of a Twin Peaks vibe, maybe it was just the Pacific northwest locations?
I liked it, but I don't know whether I'd say it has much rewatchability. It's a tough film to get through. If the ending wouldn't have tied up things as well as it did, the film probably would have been a disaster.
Loved the first 2/3rds of this, hated the last act.
Now available on Netflix streaming.
The premise did not translate as well as I'd hoped into film. Looked great throughout, despite some odd CGI, and loved seeing Heather Graham in a surprise role. But the truth-compulsion plot point was nowhere near as effective as in the novel, and here it was almost shrugged off--whereas in the novel it is much, much creepier.
Overall, a bland viewing.
The film started out really well but unfortunately went downhill for me. Only average and I also enjoyed seeing Heather Graham.
I really loved this. I wasn't expecting too much, for no particular reason, so the story really surprised me (in a good way).
Also just beautifully filmed.
