I actually watched The Stand before i read it which isnt something i usually do and i gotta say that it isnt so bad that way round.
You get to enjoy the parts in the book you knew nothing about afterwards and having the music with proper visualisations of destruction and death add to the enjoyment of the story, and the King himself starring is a great bonus like the uncut.
I think a remake would be a great idea to show the world once again that not only is it vulnerable and dangerous but that we secretly enjoy it that way. It would also draw in new fans of a generation that just doesnt know anything about the stand and the people that make it. Then those who also love to read will have a chance to delve deeper into what happened to the societys that were left in ruins....... all those years ago.
