A Random Blog of Everything I like


Misery is a movie based on Stephen King’s novel. I borrowed it fron Fariz, same as The Shawshank Redemption. This movie is considered more as a psycological thriller rather than horror. Just like The Shawshank Redemption, this work by Mr. King does not involve strange creature…it is merely human behaviour.

The movie was played by 2 awesome actors/actress. It is the kind of movie that requires great acting from the cast, if they do not play well the movie will feel totally boring. And I gotta say that both Kathy Bates and James Caan played wonderfully…well specially Kathy Bates. Bates nailed the character so well as if she really is the psycho Annie Wilkes. I do not put Caan aside but once you’ve seen the movie you’ll know why Bates outrank Caan. Bates put up an amazing show by showing her dramatically mood change.

The story was about a famous writer named Paul Sheldon (played by James Caan) who got tired writing about the same character, Misery Chastain, over and over again. He wanted to stop writing about her and started a new kind of novel. One day on his writing lodge, he got caught up in a blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Someone came to the rescue, Annie Wilkes, his number one fans, brought him back to her house. She used to be a nurse and she said she’ll take good care of Sheldon.

Problems came after Annie found out (through the last Misey’s book) that Sheldon decided to put Misery to an end by making her died. Annie – a total psycho – got furious at Sheldon because for her Misery was not just a character in a book. She kept Sheldon in her custody – more like a kidnapping – and forced him to bring Misery back to life. Can Sheldon bring Misery back to life? Does Sheldon manage to run away? or does Annie able to own him forever? you just have to watch it!! it’s worth spending your precious time to watch it.

The tagline of the movie is ‘Paul Sheldon used to write for a living. Now he’s writing to stay alive
