Why so much hype?
It is a performances centric movie
Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
Been watching every episode so far, and for the life of me can't figure out what the hell the plot is even suppose to be. They were obviously trying to go for a darker version of Twin Peaks, except the characters in Castle Rock aren't interesting at all. And the main character is stiff as a board. The only interesting character was the young prison guard, who of course got killed off. And the whole advertisement about Kings novels being incorporated into the story is false, they're more like easter eggs. I guess if you're a fan of the King novels where it takes forever to get to the point, then you may like it. But if you like to be at the edge of your seat like me, this show may not be for you.
J.J. Abrams, remember "LOST"? The same bull...
I bet that we must watch another two or three seasons to find out what is really happening, I´m not that patient.
I like the cast, the atmosphere, is above my expectations but c´mon, give us something solid.
It is like a puzzle, and the pieces are all missing. I will watch the whole chapters but if the mess keeps goes on, I must stop watch.
I was hooked after the first episode. From the setting of the town, to the acting from every character (especially Bill Skarsgård), to the deep and intense music, I found Castle Rock utterly creepy and thrilling. If you like horror thrillers I highly recommend.
I cannot say more after two episodes but good atmosphere is quite observable after even 10 minutes. I am optimistic for the future of the series.
For the guys said it is boring i have to put two points in the table:
1)In the first episodes we need to see the world of the series..so a slower plot is needed in order to set all the characters up
2)Too early to say anything.5 episodes have been released.PS:My advice to those who find it boring..Try reading IT, or The Shining the plot goes in the same speed but I never heard somoeine complaining about them
Just be patient.
