    Good movie. One of the few Stephen King books that translated good on the big screen IMHO. If you haven't seen it you might also enjoy The Shawshank Redemption.

    It sure was considering Paul new John was innocent.
     
  5. I've only seen bits of it, and it didn't make sense(cuz i only saw random bits of it). I saw the end where the guy gets fried......rather sick.

    Its a great film isn't it? Really good story and the books a good one to! Turned out much better than the movie IT. Now that was poor! :crying:
     
  7. The Shawshank Redemption is great ! One of my alltime favourites.

    Great movie. I have also seen it in Spanish :D (well.. a part of it)

    The Shawshank Redemption is also excellent.

    since my friend dropped it hard into the floor.

    Very good movie. Don't like the ending, but that is the way things usually work in real life.
     
  11. Great Movie, I think the movie have the best ending to create this emotional effect on the Audiences.

    I read the book when it first came out in parts. It sucked having to wait for the next book.

    Great movie! I hate watching movies after i've read the book, but this one didn't disapoint me at all.

    To me the best moveis that come from Stephen King books are typically the ones that DON'T deal with monsters, evil creatures (aside from just plain evil humans like the guard in Green Mile who didn't wet the sponge) and whatnot. So that would be movies like Stand By Me, Shawshank and Green Mile. Two of those three also don't deal with anything mystical or supernatural but since the Green Mile was good I couldn't rule out that.

  15. Shawshank is definitely a masterpiece.

    I think the Stand was pretty good, despite the minimal supernatural stuff. the book was superb.

    I saw The Green Mile when I was younger, back when it was in theaters. It seemed pretty disturbing back then.
