I agree that the Dark Tower series is unbelievably good. I would love to see it. On a different note - frankly I think that the mini series for the
stand absolutely sucked! It was terrible. The unedited version of the Stand which I've read literally more than a dozen times was/is the best novel
I've ever read. Interestingly, King gave a depth to the characters that is amazing. I can feel empathy to almost all of them. From Stu, to Howard,
and even Trash. The "movie" (which SUCKED) did not give any justice to Kings brilliance. Just one example. In the book, Harold Lauder went through
an amazing transition. In the "movie", in one scene Howard was howard, and in the next he was wearing a leather jacket. Gee, that explains
things.....TOTAL INJUSTICE! In the unedited version there is a character called "The Kid". Amazing chapters between The Kid, Trash, and Flagg. I
would LOVE to see a REAL movie of The Stand, but it would have to be about 50 hours long to do it right.
The best King movie in my opinion is The Shining. FireStarter was good. Shawshank, and Green Mile also were very good. Christine? Please - It was a
waste of film. It's ashame what they did with IT, which is worse? The screenplay, the cast, or the acting? I'm sure though that my bud Chukkles
probably worships Pennywise! Tommyknockers? *YAWN*......... Thinner? *HO HUM*....Sometimes, when you have writers as talented as King, maybe movies
shouldn't be made. His writing is so perfect that your imagination can do it all.
