    Default Looking back at Firestarter

    I don't think I have seen this movie since it came out in the theaters back in 1984. Firestarter is one of my favorite SK books and I remember liking (not loving) the movie back then. I caught the last 40 minutes or so on cable last night and I have to say that Drew Barrymore was heartbreaking in it. Made me want to go back and watch the whole movie again soon.

    I think drew Barrymore does awesome as Charlie. Excellent choice for the character.

    I haven't read Firestarter since 1989 or so, and I think it's time for a re-read soon. I really liked the movie when I finally got around to seeing it - agreed that Drew Barrymore was great in it.
