This movie is a good example of what I don't like about Stephen King stories.

EDIT: Also, I liked it much more when it was called 'The Thing' :/

I was excited for this one when it went to the theaters. Has a great cast. But I left just shaking my head.

Apparently many others did as well from what I'm reading about it.

I had high hopes for this when I saw Kasdan's name on it. Then I saw it in the theatre and was completely disappointed. Pass.

Considering the content of the movie, perhaps a better headline for this thread might be: "Dreamcatcher Will Shit the Blu-ray Bed on September 16."

The movie is godawful. You didn't miss anything.

The only thing at all notable about it is that theatrical screenings were preceded by the Animatrix short "Final Flight of the Osiris." The movie was released at the height of Matrix fever a couple months before the premiere of The Matrix Reloaded. A lot of Matrix fans bought tickets to Dreamcatcher just to watch the short and then leave the theater.

(A similar thing happened with the movie Wing Commander, which had the very first trailer for The Phantom Menace attached.)

What is with the shark reference?

I was thinking of watching the dvd of this the other day.

Y'know the one scene that disturbed me the most?
Spoiler
The guy in the cabin on the toilet that crapped out the multiple alien eel things. My butt just cringed the whole time!

I didn't remember Olyphant being in the film, but wow it was a loaded cast. Too bad this movie was such a godawful waste of my time. The movie was just a train wreck from beginning to the end and i still have no idea what i watched overall. I just know i never want to see it again.
