The Green mile is a screen version also. There is Tom Hanks, it's worth seeing.

I've never read any of his books but I've seen some of the movies mad from his novels or stories; The Shining, Stand by Me, Running Man, Misery, and Storm of the Century.

 

Dj, if you didn't know, that word, nigger, is considered very offensive to many black North Americans.

I have not had the opportunity to read none of his books, only the movie versions: "It", "Cujo", "The myst", "Salem´s lot", "Pet cemetary", "The dreamcatcher", "Christine" (I don´t remember the name, but it´s about a possesed car) and the amazing "Misery".

I read almost 20 books by him. The best one was the dead zone but his books are the best ones, they are all good.

Memo, have you read The Stand or The Dark Tower series? Those are the only two that really interest me much.

Thanks Nu Pogodi for this list. I've read almost all of them, there are not several new things such as Deuma-key, Lizzy's story, Blaze. I read them this year.

the movie "The Shining" is good also with J.Nickolson

Uh!! Of your list I remember some movies I saw but I didn´t know were adapted of King´s stories: "Carrie", "The shining" (I love the movie not the miniserie), "Firestarter", "The cat´s eye" (I love cats, I couldn´t leave it out of my list), "Sleepwalkers" (jejeje again in my list, few movies have used cats as the main heroes of the movies), "The dark half", "The shawshank redemption", "Thinner" (I like the black humor and irony), "The green mile" (the end is one of the best I have ever seen), "Storm of the century", "The rose red", "The diary of Ellen Rimbauer" (this one I didn´t enjoy a lot) and "1408".

Thanks Nu, you are like light in the darkness, hahaha!

Nu: I prefer "The bucket list", with Morgan Freeman. I know is not as good as the example you put, but they are enjoyable in this drama.

I love your comparison with P. Hilton, pretty explicit and understandable, hahaha!
