Dreamcatcher review

Posted : 5 years, 4 months ago on 20 November 2013 02:48

The movie is very good. You have to be open minded to watch it, sometimes the so called "powers" are viewed in a wrong way. The movie centers in aliens, so it's not unimaginable the possibility of creatures with advanced 6th senses, so you just have to be open minded about it.
It's a very good movie for those who like alien stuff, the cast is great too, i enjoyed it very much. I recommend to whomever likes Science Fiction and also a bit mindfuck story.

A bad movie

Posted : 5 years, 10 months ago on 15 May 2013 02:02

I have never been a fan of those Stephen King's novels adaptation but this one must be the worst I have seen. It is even more disappointing considering that there was a pretty good director (Lawrence Kasdan) and a decent cast (Morgan Freeman, Thomas Jane, Jason Lee, Damian Lewis, Timothy Olyphant, Tom Sizemore, Donnie Wahlberg). Back in the 80’s, not only Lawrence Kasdan had some major success as a screenwriter (he wrote ’The Empire Strikes back’ , ’Return of the Jedi’ and ’Raiders of the Lost Ark’ , not too shabby, ain’t it?), he developed also a solid career as a director and all his movies were acclaimed efforts (’Body Heat’, ‘The Big Chill’ , ‘Silverado’ , ‘The Accidental Tourist’) . Way later in his career, he made this movie which is his worst so far, a huge flop in the US (it did manage to just break even thanks to the worldwide gross). It was a huge blow for his career and it took him almost 10 years to direct another feature, the also underwhelming and underperforming ‘Darling Companion’. So, what went wrong here? Actually, the first half was watchable. I mean, it was still pretty weak and not really above your average B feature but there was something appealing about those guys with a special ‘power’. However, in the 2nd half, they brought in some kind of Alien invasion and the whole thing became really horrendous. I mean, seriously, it must have been one of the worst movie sequence I have seen. Yeah, it was that bad. The story became really idiotic, the aliens looked awful, hell, even Morgan Freeman looked awful (just check those eye brows…). If the 1st half would have been as bad as the rest, it would have probably ended up in my top 10 of the worst movies ever made. To conclude, I really really didn't like this flick, it is a mess and it is not worth a look whatsoever.

something about it

There's something about this movie that makes me want to watch it again and again. Maybe it's that I wish I had a super power, maybe it's a hero complex... maybe it's saving mankind. Whatever the reason, I want to see this again and pick up something I missed the last time(s).
