Hey Honey, Have you MIST me?
5 April 2008 | by Marius WahlSee all my reviews

I'm a normal guy, watching movies. And never, EVER have I stumbled upon a movie anything like this. I watch about 20 - 25 movies a month and this month, has been special. This is a spectacular movie, it contains almost everything from comedy to really emotionally powerful scenes. Stephen King is really a genius when it comes to this kind of books/movies.

The music used in this movie fits the situations extremely well and I've got to say, I'm completely baffled. Even today, when I hear music remotely close to what used to the end of this movie, it gets me thinking. People have said it before, and I will say it again. This movie is something you have to watch at least one time in your life.

Thanks for reading my comment :P
