helpfulsnowman from Colorado is reading But What If We're Wrong? by Chuck Klosterman August 24, 2017 - 6:28pm

I just read the book, and I'm pretty excited for the movie. 

BUT

It's not like Stephen King's stuff has an awesome track record on film.

BUT

I'll blaspheme a little: I think the original movie, though good in parts, is more like an outline of the book than the commiting of the story to film, and by the end it's pretty bad. I have higher hopes for the new one.

I aslo just read it for the first time. It gets pretty machro in scale during the last act. I'm betting they ignore a lot of that. I'm also curious ito see if they do both timelines. It looks to me like it's just them as children.

Yeah, I feel like the space turtle stuff would be pretty difficult to make sense of.

And yeah, it looks like maybe it's only the kid stuff? Which could be alright, but man does that chop a lot out.

Yeah, only the kid stuff, but a sequel's already been greenlit and that will focus on them as adults.

I'm very, very excited for this movie. Seeing it Saturday morning at the Drafthouse.

Also, yeah, the miniseries is mostly terrible, especially the second half.
