Loved the book....a real page turner. It must be hard to turn 800+ pages into a couple of DVDs, but Stephen King shouldn't have allowed this to happen. You would almost need to read the book to fathom the movie but the story lines just…

I loved the book and am afraid to watch this in case it ruins it. But from a comment below, I think it was filmed in Small Town Ontario, so I think I will give it a shot.

a trivialization of one of the most traumatizing events of my generation, with all the profundity of a comic strip, and a couple only of performances to bring some degree of dignity to this otherwise sorry project

steve believes that a man named oswald killed a man named kennedy so he takes off from there. the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. make sure that one is an accurate one, or you'll produce horse manure. YOU--that…

Stephen King has been described as the big mac and fries of literature but after watching most of this I think he's the three stale french fries with a diluted coke and ice of pop culture. In other words, dregs. When sci fi meets horror…

This pic blew my mind at first, then became less interesting despite it's twists and turns.

I enjoyed this series. I especially liked Lee Harvey Oswald's character in this Thought he was great, and his interaction with his co-actors. I always thought, 'What would have happened if JFK was not shot?' This offers possibilities.…

Excellent series. Held my interest while binge watching. Anything with the Kennedy assassination is worth a look. Great supporting cast. The relationship between Oswald and Marina was done really well and the Franco's love interest was…

This was excellent. A story that actually sees itself through to the end and then completes the answer to the question "what if"?

Adaptations of Stephen King stories are all over the map in terms of quality. This is one of the better efforts. The novel is huge so a miniseries makes sense. Slight changes were made for this TV adaptation and that's fine. King,…

Nice adaptation of King's novel. James Franco does a convincing job. Sarah Gadon is a doll, and the plot keeps you glued to the storyline. Nice job overall.

Stephen King is back on my radar! The President Kennedy assassination, a topic of interest to many, drew me to this item in the catalogue. I did not even realise this was a mini-series until I pressed play. This adaption from book to…

This is a pretty good adaptation of the excellent Stephen King book- it doesn't go as far as King does but it gets the basic idea right. One thing about the series was that the lead James Franco very often seems to be on the verge of…

Awesome, enjoyable thriller!

I haven't read the book yet, so I can't speak to how faithful an adaptation this is, but I liked the meshing of historical fiction and thriller the miniseries is.

This miniseries was okay, ...but a lot of stuff in the miniseries is missing, it didn't have everything in it that the book has. The miniseries could have had more than 8 episodes, so it could have everything in it that was in the book.

This is not a movie. It's a miniseries that's about seven hours long. Be warned...

Compelling, gripping, fascinating, and entertaining. But I thought the ending was rushed. A lot of questions remain.

Please watched Back to the Future II, or even Terminator Genesys.

This film is another one of those that characters traveled back in time to change the past. Unlike the appx. two hour long Terminators, Hot Tub Time Machine, Looper, 12 monkeys, Predestination, I'll Follow You Down etc., this film became a…

I've never read a Stephen King book and never plan to...It just seems like most of the TV shows and mini-series based on his stuff seem to suck. This is along those lines, definitely not great, somewhat interesting until they begin to…

Silly movie based upon King's silly book [King ardently believes all the bilge and balderdash from frauds, Posner and Bugliosi, who were paid quite well and not for copies sold!]. Just read the declassified documents from the CIA, FBI and…
