Oh, I loved the movie from the beginning to the end. The suspense, the style and the ending was perfect! I understand that there are people who hate it and I can see why, but the movie is just totally my style of horror/thrillers. And the best aspect of the movie:
The biggest monsters are already inside the supermarket.
I also read the book, the movie was actually better!
David emerges from the store slowly. He braces himself against a parked car and then keeps on walking in a nightmarish daze.

WE PULL BACK as David blends in with dozens and dozens of ordinary people, walking on an ordinary street, in an ordinary city.

The Talented Mr. Ripley, a film which I wish Nolan would have made himself.
If she plays cranium she gives good brainium.

Kubrick's Barry Lyndon is the loveliest looking film I've ever seen. Great film as well

I liked the novella enough to never want to see the film.

I just like The Mist because my parents got me outta school early just to see that movie.

But its still a mediocre movie.

I wish my parents were that cool. Even if the movie is bad or not. They would never take me out early just to see a movie.

As for best movie I ever saw, I have to go with There Will Be Blood. It's my favorite movie of all time.
This might change though. I just discovered that I have some great movie channels so I've been going crazy this past week recording all sorts of movies.
