Last summer, I bought this DVD of Dolores Claiborne at Zellers. It was on sale for $3.67. I liked Kathy Bates in Misery so I thought I’d also give this a try. The DVD had been sitting on my shelf – untouched – since then, together with the other movies I bought on sale, like Ghost, Out of Africa, Bridges of Madison County, The Crying Game, The Big Chill, all of which except for Dolores Claiborne, I have already seen either on TV or in the movies before but I want to watch again.
When Señor Enrique mentioned it in his post A Good Night, I knew I wanted to watch Dolores once I get a chance. And so after watching The Da Vinci Code, which I rented for one day this past weekend, Dolores was the next one on my list.
Once the opening credits came on and I read Stephen King’s name on it, I wondered if I should continue watching it that night. I get pretty scared when I watch any of King’s movies. But I needed not worry for there is nothing supernatural about Dolores Claiborne.
