Misery

Excellent movie! Stephen King is known for strong and philosophical endings in his outstanding written works. The directors and producers of adaptations of his work usually allow weak and incomplete endings, which is a real let down compared to 95% of the body of any of his movies . Two notable exceptions to this "petering out at the end" of screenplays are two movies (1) (MISERY) and (2)( The Shining). Directed by the genius of Rob Reiner for Misery, CA (The Shining was by another master director Stanley Kubrik). Misery is well worth the watch if you haven't seen it before ( hard believe if you haven't, It rings true to the general "feel" that many years of my living in the same environment demonstrated to me. It is tightly scipted as well, believable and truly frightening on a psychological level; it is intelligently written, acted and filmed and executed). This is a screenplay that was done right, from start to finish, and should be watched again, if you have watched it before. Master performances are given by James Caan and Kathy Bates, whom each NAILS the characters.The local Sheriff and a guest appearance from the talented Lauren Bacall tops it off. Filmed supposedly in th Colorado Rocky Mountains in a small town, it rings true to my decades in the area in feel. I highly recommend this movie. I suggest viewing it at night. It is not a jump out of your seat type movie, but even more cerebrally frightening as to what could conceivably happen to someone who has gone insane. Watch it,you won't regret it.

Misery

Misery, is quite simply, a brilliant film. Having now seen it seven times or more, it still does not fail to disappoint upon repeated viewings. The Blu-ray transfer is stunning too, making it all the more fantastic, with both picture and sound being like it was shot yesterday. Misery was an instant classic back in , this release allows you to revisit the film in all its glory in high definition and to see as it was meant to be seen.
It's about a harrowing game played between two cunning minds - one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer. It's like a game of chess, except its one very long one.

Plot:
Novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) - a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favourite writer as her personal prisonerfor the rest of his cock-a-doody life!

The acting in Misery is of a very high standard, making the feature easily enjoyable in that respect. The acting from the main cast, namely Caan and Bates is faultless. Bates received an Oscar for her portrayal of Annie Wilkes, and well deserved it was too. She seemed to fit the shoes perfectly for that role and I can't imagine anyone ever playing Wilkes better than Bates. She is a top actress and each scene where she acts like a twisted weirdo is memorable. It is obvious, not from the start, but as the film progresses that Annie Wilkes is mentally disturbed. We have suspicions all the way through and are pretty certain of this and our worst fears are confirmed when we discover that Annie was responsible for a high number of infant deaths when she was a nurse, she is unstable and unpredictable. The film, at the same time as being scary and tense, is quite genuinely humorous. Especially the scene where Bates shouts "He didn't get out of the COCK-A-DOODIE CAR!", so funny and you will find yourself tickled by that for the rest of the feature. The plot is so well crafted, Rob Reiner did an excellent job at directing this one. "Thrillers come little better than this" by the Daily Mail is spot on, they don't. Misery is a really tense film and the amount of dread and expectation, like a lot of King's films, develops as the movie goes deeper and deeper in. The main breaking point is when Annie finds out about MISERY, a character in Paul Sheldon's latest book in a series of books. He kills off Misery, and we are waiting for her to find out - then we know nurse is going to fall out with patient. The climax to Misery is really well done too, they couldn't have pulled it off any better.

This is a really gripping movie, from start to end it doesn't disappoint and maintains the same standard of quality throughout. It is a remarkable adaptation of the novel, maybe even better. I personally thank you, Stephen King for writing this piece of excellence, we would not have it without you. Misery is one of the best thrillers ever made, it is a cross between horror and thriller, but both combined make its one of a kind. It has a bit of everything, congesting: humour, scare factor, entertainment value and a high standard of writing all too well to form a memorable thriller that will always stick in the back of your mind somewhere. If you haven't seen this then you really are missing out, if it isn't in your top ten films, then I will be surprised.

If you like an excellently crafted thriller with a superb story, high standard of writing and a perfect cast then Misery is the film for you. It's a winner all round in my view. It's a heart-stopping psychological thriller, an award winning 's film - a suspenseful masterpiece. One of the best horror thrillers ever
