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.
But a story where flatulence, burping and aliens that spawn from your rectum are major plot points? Uh... no.
And yet that movie exists: "Dreamcatcher," a gross, befuddling sci-fi tale based on a book written when its author was on so many painkillers that he probably thought he could fly. It's an unsettling yet bizarrely unsatisfying story that mishmashes King tropes, '90s conspiracy tropes, and a spectacularly underused cast of brilliant actors giving weird, weird performances. And yes, that includes the furry aliens masquerading as Morgan Freeman's eyebrows.
Old friends Jonesy (Damian Lewis), Beaver (Jason Lee), Pete (Timothy Olyphant) and Henry (Thomas Jane) all acquired telepathy as children, after saving a mentally-disabled kid named Duddits (Donnie Wahlberg). They now use their telepathy in the most OBVIOUS WAYS EVER in their mundane jobs... except Timothy. He uses it to pull girls.
Eventually they decide to have a boys-club weekend at a snowy cabin, but their fun is interrupted by a pair of people whom they find in the wilderness... who are farting and belching. A lot. This is actually significant. They also have red marks on their skin, which are also afflicting the local animals. Then they excrete lamprey-like monsters with razor-sharp teeth -- and one of the aliens (who seems to be British) decides to possess Jonesy.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
