A very fun and overly violent action movie with Arnold Schwarzeneger filling the tough guy role perfectly.
Certainly not the greatest script in the world, but the movie is quite fun.

It
The ending dissapoints, and overall it's a little bit too long to watch in one sitting. Still, the first half is great. There's a decent cast, and Pennywise is unforgettable. I look forward to the theatrical remake.

Easily the best modern King adaption I've seen. A good chiller with some good performances. Some of the effects are sketchy, but it's definitely worth a watch.

Probably higher than it should be, but I was very fond of this when I first saw it last year. Drew Barrymore is cute as hell, and the final 15 minutes or so is fantasticly satisfying.

Pleasantly surprised at how much I got engaged into this one. King wrote the script himself, and it definitely could use a few edits. Still, it proves to be quite scary, and one of his most original piece of work.

An excellent feel good movie. This is King minus the sci-fi, and it works a charm. Very quotable and very memorable. This one will stay with you.

I loved Creepshow when I first saw it. It's just pure 80's horror, and cheesey as hell for a lot of it. Some stories are a little weaker than others, but overall it's a very fun movie.

One of the most intense thrillers I've ever seen. People say it again and again, but Kathy Bates is undoubtedly amazing in this film. It wouldn't have worked without her. Genuinely creepy.

Deep down, we all root for Carrie in this film. Yes, she's a crazy psycho, but I understand her actions. There's so denying that it's somewhat satisfying to see her kill all those people at the Prom. Or is that just me? Maybe I'm a little screwed up...
There's so many memorable images from this film, and there hasn't really been anything quite like it since.

Horror classic. 'Nuff said.

Keep in mind I have yet to see Shawshank, The Green Mile and a couple more.

The the thing i love about Stephen King movies, he usually doesn't give us a bullshit ending. 1408, The Mist, Secret Window. Good list, i haven't seen a few myself either.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 21 20:16
Thanks for reading. Yeah, he sure knows how to give us good endings. The end of Carrie is great too.
I haven't seen The Secret Window yet. IS it worth watching?
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 21 20:35
I thought The Secret Window was worth watching. Of the more recent King adaptations, 1408 is my personal favorite (though I have yet to see The Mist). And you definitely need to see Shawshank Redemption.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 21 20:38
I wasn't too overwhelmed by 1408. Found it a little boring at times. Might watch it again though.
The Mist is worth watching, definitely.
Posted: 7 years, 6 months ago at Dec 2 22:21
I personally found Running Man and Pet Sematary quite boring. Misery is also quite monotonous, although in places a pretty good movie. Stand by Me and Shining have to be the best adaptations, but also the Dead Zone is pretty good.

Thanks for reading.
I have yet to see The Dead Zone but I will soon.

not bad, but i thought firestarter was weak. no comparison with the book.
Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Sep 8 14:02
Thanks. I know it was nothing special, but I really enjoyed it for whatever reason. Specially the last act!

Just started the book recently, actually.
