    Stephen Sommers wants Odd Thomas

    http://www.joblo.com/arrow/index.php?id=23996

    the worst news ive heard in a very long time. One of my favorite books may possibly be getting the big screen treatment. Why is this a bad thing? Because the worst director in the history of hollywood wants to make it. Yeah I said it. I hate him. The hack that is Stephen Sommers wants to make Odd Thomas into a movie. Koontz books always get screwed over in the big screen treatment, if sommers gets to do this movie then that trend will continue to happen. I hope he doesn't get the job. But his movies make money, so he probably will.

    Talk about an old thread

    Anyway, I actually liked it. I haven't read any of the books, but the movie was interesting and fun.

    Outside of Van Helsing I'm not sure why everyone has a problem with Sommers. Deep Rising is an excellent creature feature and the Mummy movies he helmed were very fun and entertaining. G.I. Joe was okay but not as bad as everyone made it out to be.

    Outside of his early works Koontz has a shittier track record than Sommers. Koontz went from incredible hardcore horror novels like Darkfall and Whispers to complete piles of shit like The Face and a few others. He is an incredible writer but his storytelling went from books that would truly scare you to weird and young-adult, pillow fighting content.

    Darkfall is still one of my favorite books and read it for the fifth time a few months ago.

    Odd Thomas trailer



    How in the world did this movie based on a best selling novel by Dean Koontz not get a theatrical release?!?!?!? Oh well atleast we will get to see it on March 25th. I hate Stephen Sommers but I gotta admit the movie looks good. I loved the book and have high hopes.

    Blade and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is Stephen Norrington, not Sommers.

    pretty much everything Sommers makes is crap except Deep Rising for dumb fun reasons. That's why I was surprised to hear good things. So I can't wait to see it.

    Hate Sommers but like Anton Yelchin. Haven't read any of the series, but may need to check this out.

    P.S. I'm very sorry about the crappy signature. I was wanting to change it but I couldn't think of anything fast. For punishment I have chained my self to the bed. I hope this will do.

    Love the books, so I pre-ordered the DVD from Amazon. Trailer looked decent and I've heard good things so far.
