My buddy and I watched this for the first time this past weekend, and YIKES.

This movie has:

- Aliens regularly exploding out of people's asses
- A mentally challenged Donnie Wahlberg
- "Stand By Me" style flashbacks
- MIND POWERS
- Helicopter fights
- Thomas Jane talking into a gun like it is a telephone as he uses his mind powers. (The gun once belonged to John Wayne, and is revealed to have a tracking chip in it.)
- Super-literal visual representation of the "mental vault" metaphor
- Tom Siezmore as THE VOICE OF REASON

I'm not even scratching the surface, this flick is batshit insane.

Jesus Christ bananas this movie was made for this podcast. Morgan Freeman with the world's biggest eyebrows. The WalMart speech. Mista Gay. Duditz. What a fuckaroo. Farting. Lots of farting. And its directed by Lawrence Freakin Kasdan and written by William Goldman.

Yes. This movie sucks balls and penis just like a porn star (male or female). Spoiler*why would someone choose to fulfill their addiction to toothpicks, besides Razor Ramon or the guy in the bowling alley from uncle buck over getting a snake monster up your ass. I hate this movie. Nothing was good. Nothing I'm having flashbacks about it now and it just makes me angry.

It's like 45 minutes of a cool horror movie, then guys start shitting aliens and it goes batshit crazy. It's not actually bad, just totally nuts

That is a wonderful suggestion! Great stars, historically wonderful writer, and the most bizarre gross horrible thing. I had forgotten the shit monster. So awful.

Oh and not to mention this movie is instant streaming on netflix! It's the perfect storm for How did this get Made.

A PERFECT choice. It's like a star studded, slow motion vehicular collision of four or five different movies. If you described the plot and listed the cast and crew to a stranger, they would call you a lier, then possibly slap you.

This movie has an all star cast - Morgan Freeman, Thomas Jane, Jason Lee, etc.
It was directed by the man who co-wrote Empire Strikes back Lawrence Kasdan
The script is based on a a story by the same man who wrote the story Shawshank Redemption.

Somehow this is one of the worst movies ever.

It has an alien that attacks your butt hole. The strangest dual personality scene's by Damian Lewis.

Watch it and loath it.

This is a strange and terrible movie. I was at the library and had a stranger approach my girlfriend and I to recommend it. His unsolicited advice seemed so genuine and earnest that we rented it. The Damian Lewis scenes are what stand out in my mind today. Moral of the story: You shouldn't take film rental advice from vaguely creepy strangers. Or should you?

Sorry - not sure if anyone has posted for this one yet.

Fantastically awful film. Containing such brilliance as:
Butt Aliens
Morgan Freeman with a weird overbite, channeling the spirit of Cage at his most loony
An English actor putting on a ridiculous English accent so over the top, you think he was completely taking the piss
Jason Lee on the loo
Did I mention Butt Aliens?

The trailer for this movie was so entertaining, then the movie is a total WTF. Good call.

Fuckin' A, this is definitely worthy of an episode! It would be awesome if Tim Olyphant were the guest, it would be great to hear him talk about this shitfest. One of the worst Stephen King adaptations, and that's saying a lot.

Fungal Space Butt Worms.

 

I remember seeing this in the theaters. This movie is the only film aside from Roland Emmerich's catalog that had me scream in anger in the theater.

There could be months of HDTGM of just bad King adaptations, but ths one sits high atop the list. I remember seeing the teaser for this and thinking- this could be the next good adaptation (along with Green Mile, Shawshank, Stand By Me, Shining)! Even the subsequent full trailer looked promising. Next thing I know I am in a theater watching a promising beginning disinegrate into streange plot twists, characters and unneeded supernatural stuff. Good choice for the show...

Yes, Yes, Yes.

 

OK, you know how with King adaptations, it's usually a matter of the movie not doing the book true justice? This adaptation goes to pains to be exactly the same story as the book, and it makes exactly as much sense as the book does. This book, and movie, are both aimless and bat-crap insane.

 

Oh, man, please do Dreamcatcher. Please do Dreamcatcher.
