i was on wikipedia the other nite and on the page there it said he was on i forget what drug when he wrote that book. he was in the hospital after his accident and i think it was the 1st book he wrote after it. i realize he also did on writing the year before but i forget if he wrote that before or after his accident. anyways, you win some you lose some i guess.

i think everyone expects all his books to be great each time he does a new one, and while there is nothing wrong with that i'm the same way. they i also should realize that regardless on profilic you are. sorry about my crappy spelling.

your favorite authors will no doubt do books that are terrible. i've also read some of his books that are horrible such as the girl who loved tom gordon which is easily one of his most boring books. as for Dreamcatcher i did try and read that years ago than i think i got burnt out by King he he. i hope to finish it this time around. from how far i got i was enjoying it though. i don't remember how far i got though. many people say his early work is the best and some of it is no doubt is, but he's also done some books back than before he got sober that i thought were terrible as well. Carrie is one of his worst books as well. that's the rare case where the original 70's film is actually far far superior to the book.

anyways wikpedia also said that King came out last year saying dreamcatcher isn't one of his favorite books.
and yes that i agree isn't the most reliable sources so weather he said any of this or not i have no idea but it still interesting don't you think? what do you think is his best and worst novel anyways?

School is out (Yay!) and the rains just seem like they are never going to stop . . . so I decided to hit up Hastings for some new release horror movies this weekend and picked a pair of winners for a change!

THE CURSE OF THE WITCHING TREE (2015) has a few flaws but overall was an enjoyable story.  A woman whose husband has been in a coma for some months purchases a farm out in the Kentish countryside of England and moves in with her son and daughter. (One of the biggest problems I had with this film is that the daughter appears to be the same age if not slightly older than her thirtysomething mother!) Turns out an innocent woman was murdered for witchcraft there back during the plague years, and her angry spirit seeks revenge by murdering nine local children every generation.  Overall this is a well-done film, a bit slow, but with a nice building suspense and some genuinely creepy moments.  The acting is not bad, and as long as you don't mind a slow burn, it's generally worth the finish. 4/5

GHOUL (2015) An American film crew visits Ukraine to film the pilot of a series called "Twentieth Century Cannibals".  They are seeking survivors of the great famine of 1932, when starving Ukrainian kulaks ate their own children while struggling to survive Stalin's catastrophic collective farming experiments.  They find that a local man was accused of killing and eating his comrade some twenty years before, but was not convicted due to lack of evidence.  He offers to grant them an interview if they will meet him at a remote farmhouse, and they agree.  A local psychic agrees to accompany them there, and once they are lodged there, Boris the cannibal does not show up . . . but eerie stuff begins to happen. They discover the house is linked with the blood-soaked career of Russia's most prolific serial killer, Andrei Chikatilo.  The situation grows progressively more bizarre and unsettling with each scene, and the ending is incredibly intense and horrifying.  One of the best "found footage" movies I have ever seen.  This one gets a 5/5 all the way around.

I used to go there a lot many years go.  You could walk in and say "You got a .47 microfarad capacitor?" and sure enough they did.  Always trying to upsell you too lol.  Went in once wanting a cheap cord for my stereo;  walked out with a $25 thing with gold plated connectors.

I haven't been in one in ages.  Looks like they mostly sell cell phones and stuff these days.

I read it when it first came out and wasn't too impressed, honestly.  It just didn't resonate with me the way most of his books do.

i do have that one on hardback but i haven't read it all yet. i did finish from a Buick 8 late last night and i really enjoyed it.

it's a book that took awhile for things to happen and for me to also get used to the way he decided to write that one. now i'm reading dream catcher.  i did think about reading the book you mentioned but i wanted a book that was well a little shorter than that one. he he. and 'Dream Catcher' is shorter than it even though it's still a LONG book too. what did you think of that one?

Earthquake, The Swarm and Beyond the Poseidon Adventure make for a fun disastrous disaster triple feature.
Throw in Avalanche (1978) and Hurricane (1979) for good measure :)

Cold in July (2014)

Texas, 1989: Father of a young family of three shoots an intruder inside his home and feels guilty about it. Still, he becomes a local hero. When the intimidating father of the shot intruder shows up the family must endure discomfort and even fear for their own lives. Soon enough they are granted police protection. While cruising the streets at night the young father witnesses a crime, resulting in exposing a disturbingly dark secret..

The biggest surprise was seeing Michael C. Hall after who knows for how many years, and not recognizing him. But it was a pleasant surprise because he has really aged well, unlike most of his acting colleagues from the 1980s (example: Kelly McGillis). As for the movie, I loved it. A crime / thriller set in the late 1980s paying homage to Rolling Thunder (1977). That was pretty neat actually. The movie also provides just the right amount of 80s nostalgia without overdoing it (video tapes and stores, mom jeans, male mullets, White Lions Wait song). 4.5/5

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
