I recently watched Bag of Bones. Didn't work for me. I'm too lazy for a long review but here are some thoughts.
1) Will these ******s ever stop with the cheap scares? It's lame. And please stop doing that shit when someone or something suddenly appear behind the protagonist to startle him. Seems like in movies every cleaning lady has Solid-Snake-like sneaking abilities.
2) Your giggling sucks, Pierce Brosnan.
3) The main character is OK-ish, but no one else in the movie feels like a real person.
4) When will people finally learn that films and books are a completely different medium? Stephen King is a great writer, but directly making a movie out of his plots has failed so many times. This one, too, just doesn't work as a movie imho.
P.S.: Judging by the trailer, The Dark Knight Rises looks like shit.
Totally agree with you on ever single point made.
Saw the 2 parts of it recently as well and was really hoping for that guilty pleasure type of "man, this movie is so bad, but it's so damn involved and i'm having fun with it" feeling that often comes with stephen king movies (the stand, it, etc etc and even the mist). It failed to even give me that much satisfaction. I can't help but think 'oh, how the mighty have fallen' about Pierce Brosnan. He's not a bad actor at all - I thought he was awesome in Ghost Writer (so yeah, he's still doing good movies too) but wtf was he doing in this movie. I imagine he must've read the script and laughed out loud.
