    Just wondering which movies you think based on a story by Stephen King are the best?

    Personal favourites of mine are The Dark Half, Christine, The Stand, IT and Misery.

    It seems like we have a thread on this. If someone knows it, will you let us know so we can merge them? Thanks!

    My favorite is Storm of the Century, followed by Green Mile, Stand By Me, Shawshank Redemption, Misery, and Creepshow. There have been some AWFUL ones, too--lol

    Shawshank. Also my all time favourite movie. Then Green Mile, Stand By Me, Dead Zone, Misery, and The Mist. Though the order on them changes from time to time.

    I know it isn't very close to the source text, but The Shining is my favorite. Other good ones are Dolores, Misery, Storm of the Century, The Green Mile, and Stand By Me.

    CriticAndProud AKA Xylophone Man, or, if you prefer, Cappy.

    Shawshank, The Shining, The Green Mile, IT (technically a miniseries, but oh well).

    The Langoliers (yeah, it's a miniseries as well) gets points for this though:
