it wasn't so bad for the suspense parts. the afterlife shit was gay as fuck though. so I guess the victims of serial killers all get to go to a special purgatory together until the killer is discovered by a relative of the last victim or something.

i found it generally disappointing. i liked stanley tucci a lot though, and agree about the suspense parts. actually i had no problems with the performances in general, but the movie still felt pretty patchy overall. like a lot of the connective tissue from scene to scene was missing. like was there real buildup to the mom leaving, or the dad going from distraught/helpless to totally obsessed? also, i don't hate mark wahlberg as an actor but thought he was miscast here. every time he talks i think of andy samberg's impression.

i happen to have read the book, and i liked the afterlife aspect there (which is better explained, of course, as like a limboish area where people get used to being dead or something like that, before going on to real heaven...and it's susie in particular who is stubbornly sticking around far past when she should)...this was maybe the biggest disappointment of the movie, esp. since it's peter jackson. that stuff on the beach with the ship bottle looked like it was out of a classroom science video. anyways, i'd say i more or less liked the first half hour and the last half hour, but thought the middle hour was genuinely bad.

yeah I read the book synopsis. there were a lot of changes probably made to make it of a "watchable" length.

yah...but i'm not trying to make a book vs. movie complaint...like a checklist of what was changed or left out. i'm just saying that with the narrator setup and this particular director there was such a good opportunity to show AND tell, and the movie didn't do enough of either, at least satisfactorily to me.

I generally expect better from Jackson. but thats probably more because of the stature of the LOTR movies and not his full portfolio.

out of all the flicks he could have done, he chooses this? the story is average, nothing special or exciting. it's an oprah book of the month story.

also, jacksons vision of the heaven or whatever seems like total hell. no thanks.

yah that chick was reeeeeeeally weird, and for no good reason. her chipmunk voice was annoying and her accent came in and out. that said, oprah has plenty of good books in her book club (for a variety of tastes), so that's a nonsense complaint. this particular book was pretty good...not like an A+, but still pretty neat. the failures here were, i'm sorry to say, peter jackson's (and i do generally like his other movies a lot, including but not limited to LOTR).

his choice in films since lotr is meh. king kong and this? wtf?

same with fucking raimi. three spider mans and a b movie. joy.

same goes for jeunet and caro. fuck amelie and fuck a very long engagement. really wish they would re-team and do another great flick. last good flick jeunet did was alien 4, and even that was a turd. actually amelie was good, but whatever.

and what the fuck ever happened with the new broken lizard film? will that ever be released?

the new gilliam looks tyte.

heres a good list of upcoming flicks from great directors:

i liked all of those, and a very long engagement too. i mean i liked delicatessen and lost children as well, but i didn't find them better than the latter two jeunet solo movies. also, complaining about sam raimi making b-movies seems kinda loopy to me. it's not that i'd hate to see him do another straight drama like a simple plan...he's obviously capable of it...but drag me to hell was awesome, and only the third spider-man was dismal. i do find it refreshing that you're not writing off all these people though...i'm sick of fools who announce people's careers as over after one or two failures. like for instance, after club dread came out i heard countless people saying that broken lizard had lost it forever and all these grand statements...people always wanna be the first to declare something, i guess.

no, they haven't lost it. just making bad decisions.

for the love of the game > drag me to hell

city of lost children = masterpiece that he'll probably never outdo.

I really like drag me to hell. Sam Raimi should continue to make high budget b-movies. He's great at it.
