It should be a Hollywood movie! Perfect adaptation!
24 June 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

As a Stephen King fan or in his own words "constant reader", I have read all King's books and a lot of his unpublished works. I was part of a movie festival where Dollar Babies were screened, and with very few exceptions, I have watched all of them. Some, such as "Stephen King's Gotham Cafe", the animated "Home delivery" and Frank Darabont's "The Woman in the Room", were awesome. But the majority are poorly made, low-budget productions. King himself might have summed it up best by saying "In many cases, one viewing was all a person could bear…" Then I watched Everything's Eventual, which starts a new timeline in the SK adaptations.

I can't even compare this movie to a dollar baby (and I'm not just talking about the running time). It can all be summarized in one simple concept: It's extremely professional. The adaptation is PERFECT, it has all the little details covered, and after I finished watching it the first thing that came to my mind was "This is a movie that could be on the theaters tomorrow".

I know I'm not the only one who was looking forward to this movie with great anticipation. Every single person who looked at pictures on the Facebook group, watched the trailer, and followed the production of this movie agreed that it looked like a Hollywood film at first sight. So when I had the pleasure of watching it for the first time, I sat and prepared myself to watch one of the (if not "the") best dollar babies ever made. And when it ended and the credits stopped I realized that I didn't watched the best dollar baby ever made, but one of the best adaptations ever (I'm talking about the Hollywood movies).

Let's not comparise it against low budget adaptations like Graveyard shift, or The Mangler. Let's take an adaptation related to Everything's Eventual's story: "Hearts in Atlantis", which has two wonderful actors, a really good budget, and adapts one of the best Stephen King books. The result? A forgettable movie. Far from J.P. Scott's Everything's Eventual.

The first thing that amazed me was the quality. Again...when you watch Dollar Babies, with the exception of a very few, you know you're watching a Dollar Baby. Here it "felt" like a theater movie. EVERY SINGLE DETAIL has been covered! People familiarized with the story will smile when small details of "Dinkymail" make their appearance, or when a certain big yellow 57 Chevy shows up.

The actor's performances are perfectly balanced and they portray the true essence of the characters they play. This is especially true with 2 of the film's leads, Dinky and Mr. Sharpton. Mr. Sharpton, played wonderfully by Joe Jones was particularly exceptional. Joe reminded me of another great actor, Liam Neeson. Even Joe's voice sounds very much like him. All the performances are the accurate to the character's in the original story. You're watching them and you think "Yes...this is how Dinky, Sharpton and the rest were supposed to look and act like".

Music and sound effects are another of the high points of the movie. They sound accurate and balanced. In all the scenes they contribute to increase the suspense and tension to a maximum point. But the suspense can't be held only by music, and this is where the direction, camera, and lightning make it perfect. The camera management it's perfect, whether it's a close up or a dolly shot around Dinky working at his computer. Everything is as balanced as the rest of the movie and it reaches the perfect climax at the perfect moment...when the screen slowly fades to black.

The only thing left is to send my congratulations to director/producer J.P. Scott for making such an incredible movie! It was beyond my best expectations (and I really had high ones!).

Now I only hope he works on another Stephen King work....or many!
