2.0 out of 5 stars Plays like a really bad April Fool's joke Sept. 5 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
We've all seen Hollywood ruin some of Stephen King's most engrossing novels, but we can't blame Hollywood too much for this cinematic disaster. Dreamcatcher is just a lousy story; it pains me to say it, as no one loves and respects Stephen King more than I do, but this has to be the worst story idea that ever came out of his usually brilliant mind. I'm ashamed to say I have yet to read the actual novel, but it seems pretty clear to me that -- assuming the novel actually tells a coherent story with King's usually impressive characterization -- it would be extremely difficult if not impossible to transform it into a good movie. The metaphors this film attempts to emulate die horrible deaths when removed from King's original pages, tempting the viewer to actually laugh at the way they are portrayed onscreen. If you thought Herman's Head was silly (hey -- I actually liked Herman's Head), wait until you how this film handles that whole mindspeak thing. The harsh, regrettable truth is that Dreamcatcher is just a thoroughly ridiculous movie.

We start out with four thirty-something, clearly weird buddies. Each possesses some kind of gift, such as the ability to read others' minds. I got the impression they were all some sort of test subjects in a black ops project during their youth. I was quite wrong about that, as they actually owe their uncommon abilities to their friendship long ago with a mentally challenged young man named Duddits. The guys all head out to a mountain cabin every winter to think about their good friend, yet none of them has apparently bothered to see or even speak to him in twenty years ' uh, OK. Back in the cabin, the guys have barely begun comparing their individual oddities and exchanging movie trivia when the snow starts to hit the fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really pretty good June 22 2004
Format:DVD
I just saw this movie last night, and I don't get why there are so many negative reviews up here. I thought it was well-filmed and well-acted, with the possible exception of whoever played Henry. I kept thinking he sounded like the doctor guy from the spoof "Airplane." ("Not war, water! Mr. Gray wants water! And don't call me Shirley!") Beav (Jason Lee, I think) was hilarious, though, despite his weird toothpick obsession. Morgan Freeman wasn't bad, I guess. He reminded me of an inept Hannibal Lecter with eyebrow toupees.
The movie/plot/character development was all interesting and true to the book. It really wasn't scary, more action/adventure, but I didn't mind and most viewers probably won't. I figure the reason most people watch or read horror anyway is because they like seeing people who are worse off than themselves, and this flick had that in spades. (Giant intestinal parasite, anyone? No? How about some evil Space Truffles or whatever the fungus thing was called?) Its high point was the relationships between the characters, something King has always been really good at portraying.
Anyway, this movie was fun and good for a Friday night. I'd recommend it. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Finally, Stephen King represented June 20 2004
Format:DVD
Alright first of all I have to admit, I am a huge Stephen King fan, I absolutely love the way the man writes, he just seems to draw me in like no other author can do. However when it comes to his work being presented on the screen I am usually not impressed (except for The Shining of course)
However I enjoyed Dreamcatcher, now unlike other reviewers I will not be posting spoilers, I find the story to be very interesting, compelling and at time scary.
I think if you like a good sci-fi thriller with a lot of comedy, if you like Stephen King, I suggest you definitely check this movie out, you, in my opinion, will not be disappointed
However I don't really think this movie is too scary, as a matter of fact most of the time I was laughing out loud, not because the movie is bad but because there is some hilarious dialogue in the movie, especially Jason Lee as "Beaver" is phenomenal, granted you have to like his sort of humour but if you do you are in for a treat (think a tamer version of Jay and Silent Bob as the character he represents)

At least the alien creatures are interestingly conceptualized, designed, and sufficiently fierce.
This movie takes more than a few narrative liberties with the source novel, but still manages to be worth a look. I caught it twice one weekend on pay cable, and it was creepy and interesting enough to sit through all the way.
There are the standard "you gotta be kidding me" lapses in logic, mainly courteous of Stephen King's truly out-there mind (plus any contributions by screenwriter Goldman in his attempt to get the novel down to a manageable filming length). We've come to expect those from horror/sci-fi films based on nearly unfilmable King novels.
But at the end of the day, the whole thing is watchable enough.
Disregard all the one and two star reviews. This film is not the crap-fest that others make it out to be. It has production value, earnest actors, cool and creepy creature effects, and a story just interesting enough to keep you watching.
Watch our for worms and weasels, though.

WOW. This movie is amazingly awful but at the sametime, a fascinating study of how a movie with all the right ingredients -- A-List cast, crew and big budget -- can go so very wrong. It's almost comical to watch it happen. It would have been an easy movie to dismiss if the whole movie was awful but the start was sugared with such promise of a good movie that it makes the following 2nd half of the movie all the more disappointing. The good part, the 1st half, has the makings of a "Stand By Me" with a "Twilight Zone" twist. Sounds like a great combo, right? It is...for awhile. The acting here is good, you're revealed interesting things about how these four friends are different, and you get a wonderful sense of the strange and possible dangerous elements lurking in the background. And moreover you've got some genuinely funny dialog here that balances the anticipation of horror in the air.
All this falls apart in 2nd half with the introduction of the military and the following events that lead to a hilariously inept climax (entirely different from the novel). I've read the book beforehand, which I surprisingly enjoyed (not King's best but was fun), and I wish the Director and screenplaywriter decided to have taken more liberties and been less faithful to the book. Yes. Maybe even to the point of rewriting the whole second half so they could make it dwell more on the four friends, which was the strength of the book anyway. So few filmmakers get Stephen King's right-on, its not the plot, which is sometimes clunky and implausible, but King's characters and his unique ability to get into thier heads and to make the reader like or hate them with passion. Take that aspect away and you get a mess, as we watch here in the 2nd half of the movie.

Well, if you've seen the trailer, you expected a decent horror/sci-fi movie. However, this movie belongs in the 'horrible movie' genre. Read more

I just couldn't let this one go without giving it the praise it richly deserves. I don't know whether to give "Dreamcatcher" one star or five stars. Read more
