Re: Crap!

A: Oooh we have a cool Michael Crichton book - that never fails. Now we just need some A Listers...
B: Hey I know, lets get Samual L Jackson - then all the kids will want to see it
A: Yeah yeah, Sharon Stone too, gotta add some sex appeal
B: Dustin Hoffman will add some real class to the film
A: Cool, got a script?
B: Meh, we'll figure that out later

It should have been so good too. Sientient life not from earth, underwater claustrophobia, hallicinations/atltered perceptions and what did we get? Lets all hold hands and close our eyes.

In retrospect, I also thoroughly enjoy these types of movies - Mothman Prophecies was also as ploddingly slow with an undercurrent of oddness/unknown.

Its not so horrific as EH, and its something I'd probably let the little children watch (if I had any) in order to let them develop some sense of that teasing-not-quite-scared-yet-but-worried feeling. Its like perpetual anticipation at a low drone, rather than at a high-pitched, stomach clenching pace. Somewhere, some director is going to learn to mesh the two well, and deliver an awesome climax to a film. Wait. Steven King does it already.

Re: Crap!

Loved the book - still can't get through the beginning of the film. It sends me to sleep every time.
