"Before my mom died, she taught me to read. I basically always 2-3 years ahead of the grade level in school. My adoptive dad quit reading me the Sunday funnies after I corrected him too many times.

I've always loved reading and really tried with my stepsons, but it never stuck. My daughter, on the other hand, has been picking up books since somewhere around 6 months, not reading them, but not being able to resist them. Good thing, too, because I have 600 or so books to pass on to somebody..."


Now, there's an unfortunate sentence to mess up.

IMDB concurs.

If you look at some sweater shots of her from that show, you can see that each breast is actually as large or larger than her head.

Hmm...I'm gonna need to see more evidence. Not that I don't believe you or anything.

She's annoyingly modest but

There's some other Stephen King stories that aren't such thematically well-tread ground, which I'd rather see directed by Affleck. End of the world stuff has been done to pieces in the last few years.

Give me a farking IT movie with the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein's Monster, Teenage Werewolf, the Black Spot, the giant bird, the cosmic horror, the smoke lodge, Maturin, the things in the abandoned refrigerator,

It's hard to be the most annoying character in a show that has David Spade, but...

antidisestablishmentarianism: Also, besides those wonderful boobies the only way you can improve on the TV mini-series is with an R rated film and modern special effects. The ABC mini-series was a very good interpretation of the book.


It was indeed an excellent two hour movie... followed by a terrible two hour movie.

The casting decisions were terrible. Randall Flagg was the opposite of a menacingly charismatic leader, even moreso when they glued on the "demon" make-up. The acting performances rivaled "The Room". Who would have thought Rob Lowe could act so poorly without saying a word? The production values were outright laughable. 99% of the US is dead, but the only sense you have of it is the characters saying it.

In other words, it was as good as King's "It" mini-series.
