    Teddy and I were chatting the other day ... and he asked me which SK movies would I never want to see remade ....

    I had to think a bit .... Here's what I came up with ....

    Green Mile
    Delores Claibourne
    Stand By Me
    The Mist
    Shawshank ....

    We also discussed which ones NEED to be remade .... but that is a tale for another day ....

    I haven't seen them all. And I believe they've already done The Shining again, my 1st exposure to anything King.
    I've enjoyed Green Mile, Stand By Me, Shawshank, The Running Man...a movie I watched before I ever read
    anything from him...on television...and I didn't know it was based on King's story until the credits ran. I liked
    The Stand...The Langoliers...Hearts in Atlantis...Desperation...

    There's only been one that was a flop...another day, okay...but I think these are the ones I've seen.

    Stand By Me most definately, and Shawshank. And Green Mile. Some that need to be remade, I can only think of one, and that was Thinner. That was BAD...

    ...I'm no fan of re-makes...to me, it just shows a marked lack of imagination...

    Could not begin to discuss remakes----why spoil something that was good.

    One remake I would like to see is The Running Man. This could be a great flick in the right hands.

    As far as Apt Pupil goes, I wish that some secret lost footage existed that got the ending right and they could have a new cut. It was such a shame they screwed up the end of it because the first 2/3 of the film was excellent. I loved the cast too. Brad Renfro and Ian McKellen were perfect.

    Misery, Dolores Claiborne, Green Mile, Shawshank.
    I hate remakes. The original is always the best.

    I still think The Stand needs not so much a remake as to be made properly.

    I gave Aggie my list when we discussed this but I'll post it here for everyone...

    Green Mile
    Shawshank
    Mist
    Stand by Me

    I tend to agree with fljoe0, The Running Man could be a great film if done right... by the way, I like your avatar.
