I really enjoyed the movie. The biggest surprise for me was Bronson Pinchot since was used to him in Perfect Strangers.

I was discontented with the design of the Langoliers myself because they didn't seem to match the description in the book.

I remember loving the Nostalgia Critic's review of this. There should've been a TV movie where Molly Ringwald and Bronson Pinchot try to outham each other. It would've been glorious.

At the time it was done CGI was still a fairly new thing and I didn't perceive the effects as cheesy, after all, not everyone can get Industrial Light and Magic on board for their film projects, and it was true to the story, not wandering off in various directions that have nothing to do with what was written on the page... not that differences can't be inspired, but, The Shining notwithstanding, I like adaptions to be as faithful to the original story as possible..

(holy sheep that was a single sentence!)
You're not bad in any way. Don't buy into that kind of thinking.
I don't know because I haven't seen it. I do know that ILM has maybe set the bar at a certain level (i'm thinking they went far enough with The Perfect Storm) but who am I to judge. Pixar movies are the unwanted stepchild of George Lucas and Ja va (Jar Jar/Java) Binx.

YES!
I absolutely ADORE Bronson and thought he portrayed Mr. Toomy most excellently. I really did feel sorry for him in the book and was glad they took the time in the movie to show us that his past is what drove him insane, and that he wasn't just a random nut.
And I love the Nostalgia Critic. I love his sense of humor and style; he can successfully poke fun at anything but not come off as a complete jerk about it.

(BTW, I left a comment on this thread....AND I DID IT DELIBERATELYYYYY!!!! I DID IT DELIBERATELY!!!)

I like the movie, but only BECAUSE of how bad it is.
Scaring the little gIrl!
