    WTF "put up with" wrt Jericho? The show was pure brilliance!
    HEATHEN!

    I agree with the Newburn bit though. Way OTT

    Erm, when they say "Mist director", they don't mean that laughable piece of shit Stephen King adaption do they?

    Get bent.

    Also, Frank Darabont has done a load more cool work than The Mist, which was some thing of a departure in style from his usual stuff. The Walking Dead is in very solid hands with him.

    To be honest, I think it was the acting that put me off, on account of it being fucking woeful.

    Get bent.

    Well I have the right one, I can remember the blonde chick on the far right (Andrea?) being in it.

    Well, that's your opinion, but for an ensemble piece I thought the acting was bloody good. To call the acting woeful is a little harsh. The Misty was shot guerilla style in about two weeks, iirc. I'm hoping Darabont uses this as a template for Walking Dead.

    Is the other Mist, The Fog remake. Now, that was dreadful!

    The lead character was extremely bad at acting, he was in another SK adapation and he was awful in that too. And the horrific scene at the end (shooting everyone in the car) had me laughing, especially his screams afterwards.

    I'm pretty sure that wasn't the intention. But anyway! I still have high hopes for this, as the comic is amazing.

    The Mist, one of EG's true dividers. I loved it.

    Yeah, there was a civil war in the "Rate The Last Film You Watched" thread.

    Those that didn't like it were on the wrong side.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Thomas Jane was a lot better in The Mist than most films he's in.

    The Misst has always been very divisive here, I love the nihilistic ending, it separates it from most Hollywood endings by being so damn glum!

    What's so good about it? At best it is just an average horror film. I understand that they couldn't really do that much with the source material, but that's not really an excuse.

    I liked the big rubber tentacles that came under the shop door near the start.

    The Mist was good but had a bit of a 'made for SyFy' feel to it.

    It's a great B-Movie of the kind they just don't make anymore.

    I'm not sure The Walking Dead is (or will be) any more than that either to be fair.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Exactly my thoughts. Whilst it wasn't a bad film per se, I just hate that budget feel to things. I don't expect everything to be hyperbolic and a thick layer of visual gloss over it, especially not The Walking Dead, but even so.

    Ah, that's where I'm going wrong. I don't think being a B-Movie is a good thing : )

    Letīs not forget that Frank Darabont was the director of one of the best movies ever made, The Shawshank Redemption.

    I wonder what your expecting a TV show about Zombies to be then as I can't think of a single Zombie movie that doesn't fall into that category.

    The Walking Dead isn't even really a zombie comic.
