The Movie was also fantastic. Well, until the end. I'll just say this: I thought that was a terrible ending! Artsie, yes. Dark, gloomy, yes. But still terrible. I left the theater really bummed out, after watching a movie I loved 99% of. So at my house, we skip the end. I wish there was an alternate ending for that.
The strength's of the mist are:
- It's length. It moves quickly into the action. After swallowing down a book like IT or The Stand, it's nice to have something that just moves quickly.
- Characters. Conflict arises naturally as people take sides.
- Situation. It is exciting to have that strange mist roll in, and then the monsters with it. Even the idea of the omnious "Arrowhead Project" is exciting.
