    Default The Langoliers movie, 1995

    I was going through my old vhs tapes and found "The Langoliers" I had forgotton I recorded it when it was on television back in 1995 so I re-read the story (which is one of my favorites) then watched the movie, the movie is pretty damn close to the story, with the exception of not being able to show Craig Toomys face all jacked up by the toaster being a t.v. movie I guess and Albert Kaussner figuring out about time still working on the jet instead of Robert Jenkins the mystery writer the story is pretty dang close I enjoyed it very much not to mention it took me back 15 years.

    I think it's one of the closest movies to the book that's been done

    I agree. It was eerily close.

    the actors were pretty good, and the screenplay was a very close reprodution of the story, unfortunately Stephen writes things that have difficulty translating to TV, or the big screen for that matter. Some have worked better than others, but at the risk of being a downer........this one would not make my top ten(though I did love the story!!)

    Bronson Pinchot was awesome as Craig Toomey! "She's not a little girl! She's the head langolier!!!"

    Oh yeah and in the book at the end when they are in the airport and time is about to catch up to them they all have blood on their clothes from the nosebleeds but in the movie they don't......

    I quite liked this (*note to self to dig out the dvd)

    First time i saw this was about 15-ish years ago and my dad made me watch it a few days before i was due to fly for the first time. Will never forgive him for the countless nightmares - however, it is one of my faves

    Good stories or movies ARE time machines...they take you back with fond memories and a drop or two of nostalgia...

    The Special Effects always reminded me of Pac-Man!
