Stephen King and Film Criticism

Stephen King beyond being one of the most famous horror authors in the world, very often improvises as a film critic. He loves to give his opinion on adaptations of his works, but also on a whole bunch of other films. Lately, it's on “A Quiet Place Day One” that the man leaned over! Like many, he loved the prequel to “A Quiet Place,” which follows the arrival of the mysterious creatures on Earth, well before the adventures of the Abbott family. “A Quiet Place: Day 1: The Rare “Big Hollywood Movie” That's Both intimate and having substance (and the cat steals the show),” he said on X.

As a reminder, the film is a hit in theaters with a Rotten Tomatoes score ofe 87% for the press and a score of 73% among the public. However, Stephen King is also upset by the mockery that has been heaped on this very ambitious western. He even tackled Marvel in passing.


Stephen King's Dismay

Stephen King can't stand failure “Horizon: An American Saga” by Kevin Costner. This film, released in theaters probably a few days ago, traces the rush to the West and its pitfalls, for more than 15 years; while America is barely emerging from the Civil War. This extraordinary work should be the most ambitious baby of its director with a budget of nearly 100 million dollars. However, across the Atlantic, only 11 million dollars in revenue was collected. This is a real flope. Among the criticisms, we find that of having wanted to bring back to the forefront an increasingly rare genre, with a TV series type production, notes Widescreen. The media mostly talks about plots that overlap too much. While King has also observed some flaws, he is especially angry at people who jump on the criticism and rejoice in this failure.

“Schadenfreude means ‘taking pleasure in another’s misfortune.’ It perfectly describes the many reactions I’ve read to Kevin Costner’s ‘Horizon.’ Why in God’s name would anyone rejoice in the failure of a movie, rather than a part of the Marvel Universe?” – Stephen King on X

In his message, the author does not specify who he is targeting with these criticisms, but he seems to be fed up with Marvel movies. It is true that with their frenetic pace and ultra-dense universe, American society has become very confused in recent yearsTheir special effects have become the laughing stock of the Internet. and the quality of their scripts is also increasingly average. However, “Deadpool and Wolverine” has everything it takes to reverse the trend and bring Marvel back into the hearts of fans, and perhaps Stephen King. It will be released in theaters on July 24.
