I haven't seen The Stand yet.
It was a five part made for tv miniseries. But it was really close to the book. Of course they left some out because it was tv, but it was a wonderful adaption. Gary Senise starred in it, but alot of great actors played in it. Hell, Kareem Abdul Jabard played in it(small part but very memorable)!
I've read a couple of his books (not enough though), Christine was the first book I read and I also read Misery recently. I have the first two books in the Dark Tower series, but haven't read them yet.
I like The Dark Tower series. I love how he sometimes jumps between worlds in his books. The Talisman was great.
Have only read a handful, cause my imagination gets the better of my dreams. And same with the movies. I've never been a big horror fan, but Okami is, so I've learned to at least enjoy some.
You need to read some of his books/short stories, just to get a feel for him. Preferably during the time when he wasn't drinking, because the narrative would hop all over the place and prattle on over tiny details. "The Shining" is a worthwhile read, but it's nothing like the movie- though both good in their own right.
The Dark Tower series is supposed to be incredible.
I enjoyed The Dark Tower series. Interesting work.
That's one I actually read. Very interesting, indeed.
How bout The Dead Zone?
Yes! Love Chris Walken!
I just watched that like two weeks ago.
And King directed Maximum Overdrive. He admitted he was all coked up when he made that movie, and it shows. This is the film that got me into AC/DC.
My brother already had me into AC/DC. But it was a fun movie to watch. I loved all those apocalyptic movies. Night Of The Comet was also a favorite.
Oh yeah! Night of the Comet!
I loved the 80's! So many good movies!
Ever seen this one before? Came out in 1980. Sort of a precursor to Predator. In fact, the guy who played the Predator also played the alien in this one.
Damn! I think I did see that! If it was any sort of scifi I probably saw it.
It's about this alien that hunts humans for spirt. He flings these living, fanged flying discs at his targets. It's on BluRay, or it might be on YouTube.
Noice! Well, time for bed, buddy. So until tomorrow, arebaderche.
Just remembered one of my favorite King books and films: The Tommyknockers !!!
