|Bronson Pinchot is a golden god in The Langoliers. Everything else is dung.
I did remember him as the only person I wasn't actively rooting against, which was quite an accomplishment considering he shoots a blind girl. Also that he was competing with David Morse, who's capable of giving life to cardboard cutouts.
But Morse didn't get to have a breakdown in front of an imaginary board of executives headed by a scowling Stephen King, so the odds were never in his favor.
|To be fair, they look almost exactly like King describes them.
They do, and I actually really like the concept. The main issue is nothing but the quality of the special effects. It's understandable considering the year, but in a movie filled with so much cheese, it's a final pound of brie shoved into your mouth.
It's unfortunate, because as much as I dislike the story it does have some fun concepts. They just got beaten into the ground by a terrible group of characters.
I never knew about the TNT series. The End of the Whole Mess was a fun riff on Flowers For Algernon. Is it worth hunting down?
