    You've got to admit that Sir Anthony was stunning as Ted Brautigan, and I hope he'll reprise the role in the DT movies.

    Long days and pkeasant nights
    I'd LOVE (sorry for shouting) to see aH as Brautigan in the DT movie. As for Dreamcatcher, what JohnDalglish said.

    I know for me, my father's service has always held some fascination for me (he was a drill sargent and an engineer in Na Trang in 1970) now, especially, since he was diagnosed with diabetes last year and he's been having pancreatic and gall bladder problems that the VA has tied into his exposure to Agent Orange.

    I, too, woudl like to see Anthony Hopkins reprise his role as Ted Brautigan in the DT movies.
    Connie - not sure if my previous post was obvious that i was replying to you - again, my thoughts and best wishes to you & your father . . .

    If you can take it (like THE SHINING with Jack Nicholson) as an entity in and of itself rather than relating it to the book, it's okay. But I agree that an adaptation true to the book would be fantastic. IMHO, I don't see how it can be done, however, outside of a TV mini-series, though because a theatrical release would have to be 10 hours long to do the book justice, and that simply doesn't happen. Like when NICHOLAS NICKLEBY with Roger Rees was on Broadway years ago - It was an 8-hour play shown in two shifts! Only way to do it justice...

    I liked the movie but really thought it should have been called "Low Men In Yellow Coats" since it didn't have anything to do with the "Hearts In Atlantis" section of the book.

    I think they had to take out the DT references because the non SK readers wouldn't have understood. I think it's a good movie but not a good adaptation.

    I'd rather see a movie adaptation of the real "Hearts in Atlantis".


    Actually, I wouldn't. Film adaptions of books are almost always horrible.

    The movie was a complete disgrace to Sai King's writing, IMHO. I loved the book and read it twice back to back and have re read it many times over the years. I was disappointed in the movie version all thou Mr. Hopkins was great with the hacked script he was given. Would love to see him as Ted in DT movies.

    I don't remember much of the film, but I don't remember disliking it. I'm sure it could have been better, but I wouldn't say it sucked. JMO

    I agree. I thought the movie was bad. The left out a HUGE chunk of the book.

    Carol dead in the movie? Bronco Nagurski?
    WTF!
