1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    A bit random but watched this when I was 10 or so, had long blond wavy hair, sat on a register at school, air blowing up, and would say....back off...just back off...lol!

    drew Barrymore played the part so well. When someone says firestarter she is the first thing I think of.

    Drew was great! George C. Scott as a Native American was some serious miscasting. I like him as an actor but I'd have rather seen someone more physical like Sonny Landham (from Predator), much more menacing...

    I def. agree fushingfeef! Liked George C. Scott in the changeling but not firestarter. I did think Martin Sheen was good in the role!

    Drew was great in this. But then I like her even in her bad movies.:biggrin:

    I still would like to see a sequel to this one. Charlie all grown up, trying to hide her ability as she chairs the PTA and tries to live a normal life. A couple babies of her own, oh oh baby #2 has fried the cat because it scratched her, goverment gets a whiff of where she is and we're off and running again. :O_O:

    Here's my post about the movie from the old board:

    "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."

    Yup, Scott was HORRIBLE casting. I always pictured Cap something like Harry Morgan (M*A*SH*), but Martin Sheen has been a personal favorite since BADLANDS, so I didn't mind that one so much :)

    Ah, Badlands is awesome! And Martin Sheen is great in "The Dead Zone", but I'm getting off-topic here!

    Has anyone seen "The Fury"? Sort of similar to Firestarter.

    I've never seen the movie all the way through, just bits at a time.
