The most awesome part was when:
Flagg grabbed the stone with the back of his hand
I revisited this a few weeks ago. Even reading the book, I think The Stand is too heavy handed and the miniseries didn't help because King's teleplay seemed to keep all that at the forefront. Emotional, yes, but too lopsided. I probably won't revisit this one in my lifetime, six hours of being beaten with the storyline is a bit too much to invest in.
Thanks, but I am talking about the newer box set. Sorry I wasn't clearer but I didn't know there was an older set with 5 movies. The one I am talking about came out two years ago and only includes The Stand, The Langoliers, and The Golden Years (And is the only "The Stand" not OOP). So if anyone knows if this newer set has all the same extras that would be great, thanks!
Well if anyone cares, the new box set that includes The Stand, Golden Years and The Langoliers DOES NOT include any of the special features from the OOP The Stand Special Edition. Kind of sucks, but at least I can finally watch the film and hopefully find the OOP edition later on.
Coming to blu-ray on September 24th: Stephen King's The Stand
Bad wigs in hi-def
Nice, I can finally retire my old Artisan 2-disc dvd of this
The Stand is a GREAT book and a pretty good TV movie. I wouldn't say it's his most emotional though. It's up there, but Stand by Me, Shawshank, and Dolores Claiborne are more moving to me.
My opinion still hasn’t changed. It’s directed by Mick Garris and that pretty much tells you everything you need to know.
This is exactly why I have never bothered to watch this one.
I tried watching the first part once and didn't make it very far at all before turning it off. Seemed super cheap and bland.
This is one of the worst King adaptations I’ve ever seen.
Bored me to death.
Just another terrible King mini-series.
Great stuff. Hard to believe the same guy directed The Shining miniseries. Talk about total opposite ends of the spectrum in quality. Will buy.
It looks like they crammed the entire series onto one maxed-out dual-layer blu-ray. Given the $39.99 SRP I was kind of expecting 2-discs.
+ Lossy audio and "This appears to be the 'TV cut' with about 2-minutes removed (possibly a scene of a truck dumping bodies)."
Definitely disappointing to say the least. I don't love the miniseries or anything, but probably would have bought it at under $20
Was there ever anything other than the TV cut? It was made for TV but did it get a theatrical edit like Salem's Lot?
It'll probably go on sale for about $20 in a month or two if you are patient.
Apparently the Artisan DVD had three extended/additional scenes. Doesn't seem like anything major.
Also, none of them are dumping bodies, so the DVDBeaver review could be unreliable in that department.
