It seems the general sentiment is that THE LONESOME DEATH OF JORDY VERRILL is the weakest segment.However, for me thats when the fun really started, I found the first tale- FATHER'S DAY to be dull and contrived. Listing the stories on an enjoyment scale of 1-5 with 1 being the lowest degree of enjoyment and 5 being the highest - I rate them as follows: *FATHER'S DAY : 1.5 (If not for getting a good laugh out of seeing Ed Harris disco dancing I would have given it a 1.) *THE LONESOME DEATH OF JORDY VERRILL : 3.5 *SOMETHING TO TIDE YOU OVER : 4 *THE CRATE : 5 *THEY'RE CREEPING UP ON YOU : 2.5 ( probably worth a 3, but for me The Crate set the bar so high that it left this segment to pale in comparison, and as the closer it left me unsatisfied.) By the way, I thought Stephen King did a really, really good acting job.I saw this movie for the first time last week (how I managed not to see it all these years remains a mystery to me) and I had the privilege of not knowing that Stephen King was Jordy Verrill; I say privilege because I was able to objectively view the segment without the usual "hey that's so and so" and thus go through a process of association before I'm able to "accept" them as the character they are playing. More so in the case of Stephen King who is not an actor by trade, I would have found myself analyzing his performance - thus removing me one step from the story. So when I read a review on the film after I'd watched it I was surprised to learn that King was Jordy Verrill, even if I'd known - I'd still have the same opinion, but it was cool to have a virgin approach. Needless to say I found the character completely convincing, despite when he was just "some actor" in my mind, or now that I know it is Stephen King. P.S.- All opinions welcome.
