    Parts... good casting, though.

    The script was a bit heavy. Lines that worked in the book don't always translate as well when physically being spoken in a given situation.

    The effects are weak, but... those are few and it's a character-driven story.

    It's a love-hate situation. Not great, not bad.

    See, that's the way I feel about nearly every King work taken to the screen...just usually doesn't translate well....I mean, one of my all time favorite Vampire novels was Salem's Lot...the made for TV mini series was a joke...David Soul..give me a break.

    I will say... a story is only as good as its villain, typically. Randall Flagg was disappointing, to me.

    Just rewatched the original and to my surprise, I don't think I had ever seen the whole thing.

    I don't like replacing Tim curry but a remake can't hurt. Definitely a lot of "made for TV" acting in there (including the young Seth green).

    Unfortunately for me, I thought the ending was stupid enough for me to not give a crap to see the new ones.

    How about the "ending" to the entire Dark Tower story?

    Not sure if this was entirely sarcastic or not but while king has some bad ending movies, there are probably just as many with fine endings.

    The Dome he literally went History channel Alien guy in the end.

    I was also disappointed with dream catcher.
    I'd add the mist but only because of how morbid it ended.

    Looking up some of his other movies, I didn't even know they were all stephen king. Had no idea running man was.
