Title: The Mist (2008)
Post by: The Firecracker on May 02, 2008, 11:31:52 PM
Despite the fact that the characters make stupid mistakes that only movie characters would make in order to advance the plot, I found myself enjoying this immensly.

Nothing you haven't seen before.
Think Night of the living dead meets The Fog and you'll know what your in for.

Wonderful Twilight Zone ending. Very cruel. Although I can think about 2 better options the characters could have taken.

Speaking of TZ...this whole flick had Monsters are due on maple street undertones in it. There is even a scene where a character spues a line straight from that episode ("take away technology and everybody goes apeshit"/ paraphrasing).

I saw this movie in theaters with a total of 5 people (including me) in the theaters. It was awesome, and I thought it was going to suck...

Funny thing about the ending, my friend said, "Wouldn't it suck if... (insert ending) happened?". Then it happened. I laughed so hard. It was a damn good movie. One of the better King adaptations.

  I liked this one too.  It had an almost documentary feel to it during the scenes in the supermarket.  I liked the ending too, but I saw it coming once David went back for the pistol on the hood of his car.  I'd heard it was a downer ending so I was able to put 2 and 2 together but it was still good.  Good comparison, FC, a very Twilight Zone ending.

  I can't remember what I gave it in the Movies thread, but I think it was an 8.  :)
