Mugato: Rent Party: Talismain is a great, great book.  Peter Straub is a really good writer, and combined with Kings twisted tales makes for a good, meaty read. I am certain they will screw this up.

How many good movies based on King's books that are faithful to the source material are actually good? You can name some that are worthwhile but more often than not they aren't.


I like Maximum Overdrive because if you get really close to the TV you can still get a buzz from all of the coke.

Mugato: Steven Spielberg, who bought the rights to the book before it was even published back in the 1980s, and who's spent decades trying to put the pieces in place for his Amblin Entertainment to get it on the screen.

Why would Spielberg have trouble getting a movie made?

If I was going to make a shiatload of money from my book being adapted for the big screen, I'd be advertising the hell out of it, too.


Mmkay? I said it in admiration. It's adorable.

I can think of none, hence my certainty.  The Shining maybe, depending on your defenition of "faithful to the source material."
