    I like Stephen King. But it's not like the animosity to him is misguided.

    I never read any of his books, but I've seen lots of movies based on his books. Christine, Stand By Me, and The Mist are some of my favorites.

    Hell yeah! My mom forced me when I was a kid to love Stephen King and I'm glad she did! It, cugo, misery, stand by me, Christine, carrie just to many to name! Way to many. Sorry if I spelled any of those wrong, I'm waking up! But I'm excited!

    I recommend The Stand. Great read, and the movie was fantastic with that allstar cast.

    Also it! Is being remade! If you don't like clowns then the original and remake is certainly not your cup of tea!

    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.

    bhutrflai Okami convinced me to drink the kool-aid. Cheers!

    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.

    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.
