1.12 - Dreamcatcher

On this episode of Forgotten Cinema the Mike's visit their Memory Warehouses to discuss the 2003 Stephen King adaptation, Dreamcatcher, starring Damien Lewis, Thomas Jane, Morgan Freeman, Tom Sizemore, Jason Lee, Timothy Olyphant, and of course Donnie NKOTB Wahlberg as Duddits.

Michael Butler and Michael Field talk about how making completely faithful adaptations of certain novels don't translate well into film and how driving narrative focus away from your core characters can lead to audience apathy. Or just listen in to hear Field lambast Butler throughout the podcast for having never seen True Romance.

So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.

About the Podcast

Forgotten Cinema
A podcast about forgotten films that deserve a second chance
Welcome to Forgotten Cinema! Each episode, Mike Field and Mike Butler highlight a film that for a variety of reasons was forgotten by audiences. Whether it be because a more popular movie was released at the same time or the movie simply didn’t catch on with an audience in the its initial run. We’ll discuss what we love about the movie or perhaps don’t love about it and decide whether the movie is worth a revisit.
