    Too similar? No such thing in the eyes of movie producers - to them, similar = low risk. I'm just hoping their bottom-line focus yields a good movie as a side effect.

    I ended up not enjoying it as much as I thought after all the glowing reviews. The cast came off more "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" than "Stand by Me" but still a watchable movie. Some of the changes were bizarre like the Mike Hanlon back story but I've given up trying to puzzle out why Hollywood does certain things.

    Yes, that's what happened to me as well. I saw it right away, but it was getting good reviews, and it sounded like people were saying it was a good adaptation (which I definitely disagree with) so I was expecting just that. Then as I was watching it there were all these crazy changes, most of which made no sense to me. I guess I should stop wondering why Hollywood does stuff like that, but some of it really is baffling. The one thing I did love though was the kids. Still hoping to see it again so I can hopefully just appreciate it for a good horror film, and not think about the book.

    Nothing like striking while the iron is hot.
