    I honestly liked the film ending better than the short story.

    King did too.

    I'm pretty much indifferent about the ending. I'll be 'that guy' who bitches about the CG instead. Solid movie otherwise.

    Agreed. :nod:

    pretty solid watch, I read the novella a couple years ago and this stuck to the book pretty well... outside of the ending, which i thought was pretty good, I agree that ending it like the story ended would have received just as much or more bitching and moaning. there were some sketchy cg moments but overall it was a pretty good flick. I was surprised how well they translated a lot of the creepiness and tension from the story

    I'm a fan. The movie, for the most part, tripped me out in a good way. The monsters were cool and the ending was something else. The ending made me angry...but it didn't leave me blank like a lot of horror movies nowadays.

    WHOOP!!

    Book: Good
    Movie: Fair
    CGI: Laughable

    I thought the bugs and flying insect like monsters in the King Kong remake were way more frightening.

    Wow, I haven't commented on this yet?

    Alright.. I loved it. It felt like a Stephen King movie should feel. It has that character build that movies need, especially claustrophobic/stucksomewhere movies like this one.
    The CGI was bad, yes. The tentacle-scene in the beginning was laughable, but I didn't mind the rest at all. Movies always get worse cause of bad CGI, but this movie is proof that a GOOD movie still stands.
    The ending? Well, it was just as great as the rest. The whole last part gave me chills. I'm no reader, so I haven't read the book, but I know how that one ends and I'm glad the movies has a different ending. There is one thing about the end that bothers me though, Thomas' acting.
    I think Frank Darabont did a good thing when he took a small budget and got bad CGI, instead of changing the ending like they wanted him to and gotten a big budget.

    Actually, in terms of vagueness... there was none. Just use the spoiler warning next time and all is cool.

    We rented this last night (my second time seeing it).

    My 14 y/o sister said "what a dumb ending". I wanted to betch slap her. My dad didn't like the whole movie, and said it was a waste of $3.

    Ugh, some people don't know good movies.

    You pretty much ruined the end of the movie, yet I'm the ignorant douchebag? Right on buddy, that's some good logic.
