Odd Thomas (movie)

I watched  Odd Thomas on Friday. It is based on the book by Dean Koontz. It has Anton Yelchin, Ashley Sommers, Matthew Page, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Addison Timlin, and Willem Dafoe.

Big Warning: there is some violence and that one big sad part.

Like I said this movie was the main reason I did the book to movie marathon. There are slight differences between the book and movie. One main difference is that Elvis is a ghost he sees in the book, not a cardboard cutout. Another difference is that he visits his mother and dad. I just read an article saying Dean Koontz loves the movie. He says the mother and dad scenes were too dark in front of a test audience. He also mentions that Odd was a sculptor and not a writer in the movie (which I didn’t notice). I do agree with Dean Koontz that the music was really good in the movie. I think they a great job with the creatures too. I still would have written the ending differently.

Even though the differences, it was a great movie. I looked up to see if there will be a sequel and there won’t be. The guy who played Odd died in a car accident in real life. Next week (or maybe Friday) I’m watching A Monster Calls.
