Sorry to offend Jimmy.  :-[ But I still have to disagree. I made no reference to her beauty or face... it is the weight, in which she has packed a LOT of it on I was referring to, hence the 'letting themselves go' comment. Sophia Loren is now 76 years old and has still managed to retain her elegant grace, beauty and style without the additional pounds that you would suggest comes with age. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. Again, sorry for thinking I was entitled to an opinion.  :(

Don't take it that way KC :laugh:
It's the way I wrote, any long time members or people knowing me in real life would told you so.
No offense intended in what I wrote and off course you are entitled to an opinion ;)

Ok, I'm glad to hear it!  :) After seeing how some people are jumped on in the ahem... 'other forum' I guess I've been kind of walking on eggshells. That and being new to the forum here I'm still getting to know everyone. It's all good!  :thumbup:

'FROM LEGENDARY FRIGHTMASTER STEPHEN KING' and Academy AwardĀ® nominated director Frank Darabont* ('The Shawshank Redemption', 'The Green Mile') comes one of the most tense and terrifying films since 'The Shining'. After a mysterious mist envelops a small New England town, a group of locals trapped in a supermarket must battle a siege of otherworldly creatures...and the fears that threaten to tear them apart. Starring Thomas Jane ('The Punisher') and OscarĀ® winner Marcia Gay Harden** ('Mystic River') in one of the year's most talked-about performances, 'The Mist' "is not only one of the best movies of 2007, it's one of the best horror movies ever made.

Extras:

Feature Trailers

Featurettes

My Thoughts:

Very enjoyable. Some people at work blabbed the ending quite some time ago so the ending wasn't a shock... but it would have been. It was also a different, and better IMO, ending than the book.

Marcia Gay Harden's brilliant performance as the doomsday zealot made this movie worth watching alone. Her character was far scarier than the nasties outside.

The anguish at the end was very real.... choosing wrong can cost so much.

Oh... dear. He mentioned the bloody ending. Here we go again! :training:

I agree with you, KC, but I know someone who doesn't. Look up the other reviews and you'll see what I mean... :laugh:

The ending does fit for the movie...though it is rather depressing.  I definitely didn't see it coming.  I'm still not sure exactly what I think of the movie overall though.   :laugh:

Have you been reading the second Hitchcock thread I started, Pete? We went off at a slight tangent on James Stewart and Antares suggested you would like Harvey. Have you seen it? I think it would be up your street.

Definitely a film you would enjoy Pete.
