    I'm ashamed to admit that despite the ridiculous amounts of Porn I've watched throughout my life so far I've NEVER seen Debbie in action. Might have to rectify that! lol :o :D

    OMG I forgot about Big Trouble In Little China

    SUCH A GOOD MOVIE!!!

    @kojack yeah, plus King had a huge issue with the female character being just a screaming weak mess, she was meant to be strong and unafraid. The Shining was written during Kings darker times, he was suffering from alcoholism and very bad dreams. He dreamt once that he strangled his kids with a fire hose. (At the Stanley Hotel room 217) the book was almost autobiographical and King felt the movie went in the wrong direction. He also hated that Nicolson was cast.
    Man it has been decades since I watched Big Trouble in Little China - that movie used to be on all the time when I was growing up!!!

    As far as Kubrick's the Shining goes - yes King's complaints are valid when looking at it in comparison to the book and his story is arguably the scarier one because his characters are that much more human. But Kubrick's version - I don't know, I think it is because of his visual language - the cinematography of his version, the textures, the soundtrack that communicate a story in a way that most King adaptations (not all) cannot match.

    I mean most Stephen King movies / mini-series I watch simply because I enjoy his stories so much, but I'd say out of all the King movies listed on Wiki - the following are actually worth watching, and the ones in bold are the ones that I think qualify as good movies in general (not just good Stephen King movies) if you compare my list with wiki list, I have cut out most of the adaptations. Not necessarily because I didn't enjoy those movies or shows (I have watched the majority of that list), but I cut them out because most of those movies are objectively not good movies. The following list are movies I think are watchable - and some of them even worth watching multiple times.

    1976 - Carrie - this is an ok movie, and it has aged pretty well but it isn't a mind blowing movie but Carrie was never my favourite King book.
    1980 - The Shining - not really much to say, this is a great movie even if it is not a great adaptation.
    1983 - Cujo - not really a great film, but it is watchable.
    1983 - The Dead Zone - same as Cujo, it is watchable even if it is very slowly paced.
    1983 - Christine - probably the cheesiest film on this whole list, it is not great by any means but it is still watchable.
    1986 - Stand by Me - this is a good film, it hasn't aged completely gracefully but it is still a good film and one that I have watched many times.
    1990 - Misery - this is a very good thriller movie, well worth watching. Excellent performances by the cast.
    1994 - The Shawshank Redemption - this is one of those movies that I can watch from what ever scene comes on the TV at any moment, it is in my top 5 films of all time.
    1995 - Dolores Claiborne  - I remember this as being a depressing but good film, I haven't watched in a long time. I am honestly not sure how it holds up today.
    1998 - Apt Pupil - this is one of those films where I think the liberties the director took really work for the film, the ending in particular is much more sinister than the horrific violent ending of the novel. I have watched this a few times since it's release, it hasn't aged all that well (it is a late 90s movie through and through), but it is entertaining.
    1999 - The Green Mile - like The Shawshank Redemption, it is just such a likeable film. The whole cast is great and even though it is very long, it never feels poorly paced.
    2001 - Hearts in Atlantis - this is an odd movie, I like the cinematography and the story but I can't say I have watched it more than one time. I'd actually like to revisit this one and see what I think now.
    2003 - Dreamcatcher - I recently rewatched this, it is far from a great film but it is an entertaining alien horror film.
    2004 - Riding the Bullet - can't remember too much about this one, other than I think that I enjoyed it.
    2007 - 1408 - this one still gives me nightmares when I watch it, probably the scariest adaptation of all. It is also a really great film in general, John Cusack and Samuel Jackson are fantastic.
    2007 - The Mist - when I saw this in the theaters the first 5 minutes had me thinking "oh no, here we go again another well meaning but completely cheesy Stephen King horror movie", but by 10 minutes in I was hooked and by the time the credits roll I was gut punched. Easily one of my favourite horror movies.
    2009 - Dolan's Cadillac - same as Riding the Bullet, can't remember to much but I think it was good.
    2017 - It - this is a great film, can't wait for the sequel. Completely trashes the original - it nails the atmosphere of the book despite taking a lot of liberty with the story (changing the time period, and most of the scary encounters completely).
    2017 - Gerald's Game - haven't watched this yet, but I have heard good things.
    2017 - 1922 - this was a fun watch, the pacing is a little out of sorts but the overall movie was enjoyable.
    2017 - Mr. Mercedes - hands down one of my favourite TV shows at the moment, great adaptation.
    2018 - Castle Rock  - I am hoping this ends up being good, going to buy it on iTunes soon.

    OMG, all the ones you highlighted are my favourites too!!!!!!!!! (Langoliers is a great one too, very good concept, cheap and poor execution :) )

    Castle Rock is bloody amazing I HIGHLY recommend it, its Stephen King and JJ Abrams at their best.

    There's a new Big Trouble In Little China movie on the way, staring Dwayne Johnson.
    It's a sequel, not a remake.
    From the president of the production company two weeks ago:
    "You can’t remake a classic like that, so what we’re planning to do is we’re going to continue the story. We’re going to continue the universe of ‘Big Trouble in Little China.’ Everything that happened in the original exists and is standalone and I think there’s only one person that could ever play Jack Burton, so Dwayne would never try and play that character."

    @SimonSays28 - Dreamcatcher, isn't that the one where there's a lot of farting going on? I've never laughed so much in all my life when I watched that horror film. The farting was totally unexpected in it..

    I haven't seen the latest It film but I loved the first one, Tim Curry is awesome. :D

    And all of this Stephen King stuff and no mention of Salem's Lot? One of my all time favourite films of all time!

    Children Of The Corn was also great too.

    The weird thing with me is that I can't stand his books. I just can't read and get into them for some reason...but I LOVE all of the films and telly series based on his books.

    LOL, yep that's the one - there was almost a body horror vibe to the whole movie, maybe not as gross as say The Fly or Naked Lunch, but definitely something very human about the horror (and yep, I laugh every time I see it). I think the cinematography in this one was pretty good in this one.

    The book is so much better - and it is connected very closely to the Derry series (It, Insomnia, Dreamcatcher, and 11/22/63) - definitely worth the read if you like his books.

    OMG, all the ones you highlighted are my favourites too!!!!!!!!! (Langoliers is a great one too, very good concept, cheap and poor execution :) )

    Right on - I think as movies they work for everyone, which is why I love them. I am looking forward to Castle Rock so much!!!

    I love the Langoliers - but it was definitely one of his movies that is really only going to work for King fans, or people who like low budget movies (I happen to like both).

    I think that is really what it amounts to with the majority of his movies is - the concept is usually so bizarre that it really should make a great movie, but because he is unfortunately stereotyped as a horror writer usually his movies get budgeted as such.

    I mean completely off topic and probably I could dedicate a whole thread to Stephen King - but I kind of hate how he is type cast as strict horror fiction because is work is so much more layered than that. He usually blends genres - and has an uncanny knack for writing characters that are relatable on a human level. I have read lots of different genres and authors over the years - but anytime I find I haven't read for a long period of time, I pick up one of his books to get me started again.

    The original It is so corny - I mean I love it, and it is a more faithful adaptation of the story than the new one (well as faithful to an 1100 page book that you can be, especially one as dense as It). But it is firmly in the B-movie side of his adaptations - where as the new adaptation nails the atmosphere of the book so much more closely while taking liberty with the time period, pacing, and the appearances of Pennywise for each of the characters. Honestly - it is one of my favourite horror movies of all time.

    The Salem's Lot movie is in that realm of cheese for me too - I mean it is way better than a Tommyknockers, but not quite a Christine, so I left it off my list. There are probably about 5 or 10 I left off that technically could be added in - but because I had to think on them, I decided to leave them off.

    As for his books - you're not the first person I have met who has felt that way. I mean - I love his voice, especially from around '96 on. But outside of a few of his shorter stories - most of his output is fairly dense and layered (but not difficult to decipher), I find some of his concepts are just so bizarre (Insomnia, or the Regulators) but his characters are very relatable which most times for me at least lends a sense of credibility to the surreal shit he writes about.

    @SimonSays28 you ever read The Talisman by Straub and King ? I've read that book a thousand times and it's crying out for a movie. One of my favourite reads of all time ;)

     BLACK HOUSE is the first one in the series, The Talisman is a sequel, great books indeed. Also many connections to The Dark Tower. (Which should have been a Netflix miniseries not the abomination that was the movie)

    I love The Talisman and Black House - and very much love The Dark Tower series of books. Also love how at the beginning of Tommyknockers, Jim Gardiner wakes up on Arcadia Beach near the amusement park from The Talisman and has a conversation with Jack. It may or may not be the same Jack, because The Tommyknockers is set about 7 years after The Talisman and Jack is referred to as the kid by Jim Gardiner - but he would be about 18 or 19 at that point, which I remember still being called a kid by people 10 or 15 years older than me when I was around that age. Some of the things Jack says are just heartbreaking.

    Yep all those books would make great movies / netflix series.

    The Dark Tower (Which should have been a Netflix miniseries not the abomination that was the movie)
    I like most of Stephen King adaptations, usually I can find some redeeming quality in them - and even if they are cheesy, I love the stories so much it is easy to forgive any issues I have with the casting, cinematography, and just general cheesiness of most of his films.

    But the Dark Tower adaptation was a gut punch - the casting was off for everyone from Roland and Jake, right down to Flagg... well Matthew McConaughey could have been a good choice, but they dropped the ball with his characterization in the script.

    I was willing to give it a chance - in spite of the miscasting of roles, and the cuts and everything because King gave it his blessing and even acknowledged it's canonical role in the series. I tried to go in with no expectations - hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

    But it is not only a bad Stephen King movie, it is a bad movie in general - with no redeeming aspects from a b-movie perspective.

    Honestly I could wax all day on how terrible it is - but I refuse to give it that much of my time. I believe there is a TV series based on book 4 in the works - not sure if it is still happening, but if they nailed that one they could restructure the series in a more linear fashion following Roland's journey from that path onward which if they completely disowned the movie could work great.

     Getting back to the topic of films ....

     I found this today on DVD and I had completely missed it. It is a real gem called Project ALF. Saw it on the shelf  at a HMV store and had to purchase it. 

    Its hilariously awesome.

    Love Dark City and 13th Floor.

    Contact is great too - and I also liked Frequency from around the same time period (97-2000).

    On the list of films that nobody I know seems to like but I absolutely love are the 3 Richard Kelly films (Donnie Darko, Southland Tales, and The Box).

    Donnie Darko gets love for sure - but Southland Tales is one of my favourite films of all time, even though it is a very dense movie that took me at least 3 watches and reading a comic book prequel to fully understand the scope of it. The Box is great too - but again, it is a visually dense movie that operates in the realm of interpretation - so definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

    Just saw Solo yesterday with the wife - we both loved the movie, I think it's one of the best SW movies I've seen in a very long time. I'm a great fan of Harrison Ford and really wanted to dislike Solo, but I had to surrender - it simply was an awesome movie (and $300,000,000 budget ;-) I saw the blu-ray 3D version.



    We did share some frontal lobe anesthesia, maybe that did help improve the movie :blush:

    was thinking about ..thought provoking films that ive seen over my last five decades and wondered if anyone can ever remember this one ?. I don't recall that it was a massive hit but it was a quite thought provoking story line (I thought) back in the day https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_Frost

    7even was another one on my list ...only time ive ever been to the cinema where the whole audience( me and wife  included ) walked out at the end and never mentioned a word till we almost got home . its a shame mainstream cinema doesn't appear to make these types of movies anymore

    I've got a really good film to recommend, it's gone under the radar for a lot of people, I don't remember it being advertised at the cinema either. It's called Upgrade 2018:

    I really thought this film was amazing! All my friends and family watched it recently and they loved it too! Enjoy :)

    I just watched "Open Range" on YouYube (it's been uploaded by a couple of YTers, but one is clearly playing better) and really enjoyed it. Not big into westerns, but it was one of those where the gunfights are more believable - everyone blasting away from point blank range and rarely hitting anything. Most of the folks not wanting trouble.
    It's a very typical western plot, with Costner (also directing) and Duvall. 2 hours' worth.

    Another one I found on YT was the original "The Bourne Identity" from 1988, with Richard Chamberlain. Follows the book a lot better than the Damon film did (I suppose the later one was more a Bourne Identity for modern times). I read pretty much all of Ludlum's books back in the day - it's a shame they didn't make more of them into films. That's 3 hours, though - but split into 2 parts.

    Maybe someone should start a thread on the worst film you have ever seen. The list would probably fill a library though since there's only ever a few really good films made each year..
