Darabont + King = Magic?

Absolutely! How can one forget Shawshank Redumption (an all time favorite)? Or Green Mile. But not this time. This stuff has been done so many times that The Mist is disappointing. If made in 70’s, it would have rocked. Ending is brutally shocking, but was very deliberate. There was no “pressing” reason to do that. It didnt feel like cornered and end of the road scenario. It still is shocking, but in a stupid way.

What I really liked about the movie is the elaboration into the mob characteristics. The only place where I felt it was a Darabont movie. The spiritual lady acted so very well that it got irritating when she came on the screen. Should add her (along with Garner in Juno) into the missed the Oscar nominations list.
