I thought the blizzard setting added a nice eerie, doom foreboding touch to a very suspenseful movie. I really enjoyed the way that the suspense was slowly, patiently and convincingly built throughout. When Jonesy found the lost hunter/farter you could feel that something was going to go wrong. Later when the car flipped, you really knew things were getting bad. The aliens coming out of the toilet and munching on the fingers and later body of the "glasses guy" made me jump.
I also felt that the film's use of flashbacks was a great technique for heightening the interest and filling in prior knowledge. The flashbacks were much more interesting than say just coming out from the beginning and explaining the clairvoyant aspects of the 4 main characters, and Duddys. As the plot progressed we began to fully understand what their powers were and how they came to possess them. The military portion/concept was perhaps a little clunky but necessary for the advancement of the plot.Read more ›
Regardless, it's definitely worth a look. I never met anyone who just hated it. And if you don't love it, you'll probably just be glad to have seen it and move on to your next scary/funny, sunday/rainy movie.
But again, this is one of my favorite movies for some strange reason. Everybody's got a few of those, so I know you'll understand.
AND, you might want to buy it now, they're not producing this edition anymore and I already can't find it in a retail store.
Despite having been adapted from a popular book and featuring a likeable cast, the film's release garnered mostly negative reviews; "Dreamcatcher" holds a 30% rating from Rotten Tomatoes. Personally, I find that movie's first few scenes to be highly captivating; the cast and writing does a phenomenal job of creating intrigue about the characters and their other-worldly situation while still retaining an element of mystery--something key to keep audiences watching. The "problem" with the film occurs along the build-up to the climax--an issue which I attribute to the need to alternative structuring between novel and film. In addition, it seems fair to say that the "suspense-element" of the story was highly untapped by the screenplay; there are many areas where the filmmakers could have utilizes symbolism and twists, yet ultimately failed to do so. All-in-all, I don't necessarily regret purchasing this DVD as it succeeds in telling a dynamic story; what I would warn about is that, while I think it's a good movie to see, it likely isn't one to add to a collection in anticipation of multiple views.Read more ›
