I am looking forward to seeing this film.Can we just take a moment to appreciate how incredible this scene is?
I would also add The MIst to that.I am looking forward to seeing this film.
(I never expect a screen adaption to ever be as great as the novels. I just hope for the best. I think it is rather unreasonable to expect that much. Very few films can ever come close to a true and thorough representation of these great stories.The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption are two of the finest, that do get very close.)
It is actually quite good if you can remove it from the books. Not every adaption has to be verbatim. As a blockbuster version of TDT, it is actually very good. Even Stephen himself liked it.When this film first come out, I hummed and harred about seeing it, as reviewers slammed it and had only read the first 4 books. Anyhow went and saw it and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it, could of been because there was only one other person in the theater or had not read the full series. But have seen it several times since and still enjoy it.
There's a meme going around where Stephen King said that Covid 19 is nothing like the superflu from the Stand. One guy responded, how would you know, have read the book? LolLMAO I thought you were being serious for a moment.
You are right though, that Stephen King kid should read the books.
