Bag of Bones
Bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, unable to cope after his wife's sudden death, returns to the couple's lakeside retreat in Maine, where he becomes involved in a custody battle between a young widow and her child's enormously wealthy grandfather. Mike inexplicably receives mysterious ghostly visitations, escalating nightmares and the realization that his late wife still has something to tell him.
I almost sat down to seriously write about what I thought of Bag of Bones but then I remembered it was a Stephen King adaptation directed by Mick Garris and nothing else really needs to be said.
Bag of bones is creepy, fun and one of the best movies I've seen from pierce brosnon who I am not a fan of in all honesty he is a good actor but a lot of the time chooses to hide his talent but in all honesty I liked this movie alot its campy in a way I get that but I understand both the love and hate for this movie its scary so the horror for the movie works and its a very fun movie, extremely entertaining and well the acting is pretty strong and believable then you have some plain performances that don't work and are unbelievable, so overall bag of bones is a top notch Stephen king adaptation that works and sticks to its source material immensely well, three point seven out of five stars, 3.7/5 stars.
"Oh Pierce, I'm so sorry for what they did to you and your career!"
Damn it, Mick Garris. Someone once called him "the worst living filmmaker", but I think that's a tad harsh. He is responsible for all the worst Stephen King adaptations though, and this one's no exception. Especially compared to the likes of Kubrick, Carpenter, DePalma and Cronenberg.
Even though it follows the structure of the novel somewhat haphazardly, the whole thing reeks of budget and poor decisions in filmmaking. The dialogue stinks, and most of it is Pierce Brosnan reciting the lines to himself and prancing around like a lunatic. You could seriously create a YouTube video worthy of Nicolas Cage based on this stuff. The shots…
Esta película o mejor dicho miniserie no me pudo haber decepcionado mas, luego de haber visto "Triangle" una película realmente buena quise ver la filmografia de Melissa George y entre sus películas me atrajo la portada de esta, hasta hoy me decidí verla para mi mayor sorpresa me encuentro con que en el elenco también se encuentra Pierce Brosnan quien es que si mi "James Bond" favorito y aun para mas sorpresa que la película esta basada en un libro de Stephen King.
Todo lo mencionado antes apuntaba a que estaba a punto de ver algo que me iba a encantar cosa que cumplió durante los primeros 15 segundos que fueron realmente buenos, lo que estoy por decir no arruina…
This is actually one of my favourite Stephen King novels. It's a creepy, effective ghost story that, unlike so many of his other books, doesn't go completely off the rails in the last act.
Unfortunately this adaptation was just terrible. I've tried to block out most of it from my memory but fragments remain: Pierce Brosnan not even attempting an American accent or to play a character other than "Pierce Brosnan", some terrible over-produced modern pop-rock music playing over scenes of Pierce Brosnan driving around in an expensive car, the absence of most of the novels most effective elements, the fist of my future self punching me in the face for deciding to watch this, etc.
At least "The Langoliers" had demonic Pac-Men rendered in Sega Saturn graphics so we had something entertaining to look at.
Still one of the better Stephen King movies...really creepy
I love garbage movies and even I can't believe I watched all of this.
It's a really cheesy movie... With all the possible clichés in the script: dead wife, writer's block, lake house in maine or something, cruel, racists and wealthy aristocrats using power to do injustice stuff with the handsome fashion model couple with cute blond kid... and, of course, as every stephen king's protagonist: sarcastic, with all the right answers, charming and rather despotic in passive-aggressive style.
I mean, It's fun to watch, of course, but kinda annoyiin... It's part Stephen King's fault cuz i already red that book, but the director wasn't any helper either.
Well, the good surprise, in my opinion, is that Pierce Brosnam was good.
Not something I'd watch again but when I did see it on television as the two part miniseries.
Pierce, always good. It was extremely hard on Part 1 to follow what was happening through all the jump scares and nightmares. I didn't find anything congealed together. Maybe it was me but it really did come to a conclusion, at the end it was pretty sad too. It's one of those films you're gonna have to wait until the very end to understand.
How is it just about every Stephen King adaptation ends up totally truncating the female character's stories?
There has been quite a lot of negative reviews concerning this film and I don't understand why. It is rather slow and the story is not ground breaking but it's hardly an awful film. In the end, I thought Pierce Bronson did a magnificent job and no matter what anyone says, Mick Garris adds a certain aura to all of his films and he has never disappointed me.
Plodding yet passable adaptation of a book that's nowhere near King's best.
Decent little thriller that was a mini series on I believe A&E. Not the greatest King flick but worthy of a multiple watch.
“Bag of Bones" is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name and was originally aired as a two-part mini series on the American A&E Network in 2011. It aired in the UK as a single three-hour film on Channel 5 in December 2012. The story revolves around best selling author Mike Noonan (Pierce Brosnan) and his wife Jo (Annabeth Gish). Jo is, unfortunately, killed by a bus and after her death Mike is wracked by grief at his loss, but also highly conflicted as he comes to believe that Jo may have been having an affair. He develops writers block and is haunted by recurring nightmares about the family summer home on Dark Score Lake in Maine.…
