I loved the book. But then I saw the movie and was pretty lame. I loved the fact that Johnny Depp was in it. He's so HOT!! But the ending wasn't the same as it was in the book and that sorta pissed me off a bit. What do you think...for those who have seen the movie?

Well I love the movie! I am getting to the end of the book.  I haven't picked back up on it in weeks. He he...any ways.  My friend spoiled the fact for me that the ending is different.  SHe said it was wierd how it totally changed.

in general the books are better than the films based on them (with exception of lotr, that I love both books and movies), perhaps that happend in this film, although I haven't read the book.

I have finally seen Secret Window... Johnny was sooo cute...
I went and saw it with my friend and we were both drooling over him...
My friend would have preferred if he dressed better but I didn't mind!

Okay, the movie... It was good... I liked it... it's just that I had read the story by King already so I knew what was happening... and there was no mystery thingy to it...

I liked the guy that played Shooter... he was how I imagined him to be... although I didn't imagine Rainy to look like he did... he was supposed to be a geek... and you cannot make Johnny into a geek no matter how hard you try!! even so, Johnny was fantastic... he is a great actor... I'm surprised I didn't become a fan of his from years before (I always liked him but I wouldn't say that I was a fan)...

As for the ending... I was disappointed that they changed it... But I guess they had to adept it into a movie ending... and that was a movie ending...


***SPOILERS***SPOILERS***SPOILERS***SPOILERS***SPOILERS***SPOILERS***SPOILERS***

*************************HUGE SPOILERS*************************


You know tho... the ending leaves you wondering if he would eventually be caught.. Cause he obviously is still psycho... if he wasn't he would have broken down with what he did... and he also re-wrote the ending to his story where the wife is buried and corn is grown over her grave... Now if he publishes this story wouldn't the  cops catch on to what happened and arrest him... hmmm... I wonder....

Ohhh and the poor dog!! I felt so sorry for it...!! poor thing
Ohhh and on picking up on things... well I did, like the dog ignoring Shooter...  (but I think it was because I knew what was happening)...

I can't decide which ending I liked better, honestly. I found the ending in the movie more satisfying, but the ending in the book easier to believe. (I'll PM both you guys, but ONLY IF YOU PROMISE TO READ IT! You should read the book, really.)

The book is called "Four Past Midnight" and the story is called "Secret Window, Secret Garden." And about that link -- is it me you're talking to? Which link did I put in that didn't work?

I promise I'm going to read it, but not until I finish Holy Fools by Joanne Harris.

By the way today I saw another film based on one of his books, it was Needful Things

flow: Okay, I know it looks weird, but it should be okay if you right click on that Tom Petty one and Save As. I know it looks funny, but it worked fine for me.

Chrys: Oh, all right. And I've heard Needful Things is horrendously inaccurate, so I wouldn't judge all the King movies overall by that one.
(I'll PM you now. )
