Product Description

Four young friends perform a heroic act and are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return. Years later, on a hunting trip in the Maine woods, they are overtaken by a blizzard, a vicious storm in which something much more ominous moves. Challenged to stop a deadly alien force, they confront an unparalleled horror, with the fate of the world in the balance.

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. As a bad film, it's up there with the classic bad ones. It's one of those movies which is on cable repeatedly and becomes a guilty pleasure just to laugh at whenever it's on (I caught it on cable, and am glad I didn't slap down $9.50 just to walk out). First of all, the story's so haphazard and clumsily directed you just give up about a half-way into it. It ain't gonna get any better, and probably will get worse. And damn, does it get worse...One minute it's a psychological/mystical thriller about telepathy. Next minute it's horror schlock. And back and forth. Chock full of inappropriate & clumsy humorous notes which dissipate the suspense. Horrendously pseudo-hip and mock-military dialogue. One character gets taken over by the aliens and speaks with a British accent so we know it's the alien talking, and we're treated to some illuminating highschool freshman symbolism of his trapped personality looking through a window on the events. Nice. The scene where Jason Lee is sitting on a toilet with a "butt weasel" trapped beneath should be frightening, but is just ridiculous. That scene is symptomatic of the whole thing: it goes on too long and is somehow trying for laughs. In lieu of a suspenseful story we get ooze and slime and gore. And more ooze 'n slime 'n gore. Most viewers can see in a rough way how it'll end a thousand painful miles away.
And poor Morgan Freeman--what's up with the fake eyebrows? He looks like R. Lee Ermey. It looks as if they couldn't get R. Lee for the role, so they stuck snowy Ermey-like eyebrows.

My review is about the bilingual bluray only.
Je tiens à préciser aux canadiens francophone que ce bluray est à fuir comme la peste, il est bon pour la poubelle!! Gardez précieusement votre DVD, car Warner a vraiment fait de la m*** sur ce coup là, au lieu de présenté la version française normal doublé au Québec, ce bluray contient la piste audio française de France... Est c'est une abomination total! Surtout quand on le connaît bien en canadien... Bravo Warner, merci de mettre une version française mal doublé, mal synchronisé et avec des doubleurs de m*** au lieu de nous donner la bonne version canadienne qui je le rappel est disponible en 5.1 sur le DVD us... A n'y rien comprendre... Et évidemment si personne ne dit rien, il ne risque pas de changer!
Oh et je tiens à préciser que je ne suis même pas canadien, je suis Suisse, mais vu la différence de travail entre l'industrie du doublage du Canada et celle de la France, je me procure du coup uniquement des éditions du Canada, donc quand je commande un bluray canadien et que je me retrouve avec une vf dégueulasse de France à la place je suis un peu dégoûté et surtout choqué du non respect des doublages canadiens le la part de Warner.

By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 5 2006

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.

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!
