Last year I bought The Green Mile on DVD at Walmart for $5. I've seen it several times, so I told myself I wasn't going to re-watch it again until I reread the book!
Can never go wrong with the Green Mile. It has more meaning for me than I can express into words. I was shocked by the death of Micheal Clarke Duncan.

Been reading John D McDonald...33 titles so far, there could be more but that is all memory serves and most of that recent. Check him out. There's a great line in one of his stories, seems to relate to Green Mile...and I think John D wrote...whudducallit...intro? to...what was it? Night Shift? something. here's the quote:
“there is one demon loose upon the world who spends all his infinite time and energy on the devising of all the vicious little coincidences which confound mankind. his specialty is to confront the unwary with coincidences so eerie, so obviously planned by a malevolent intelligence, that time itself comes to a full stop and his victim stands transfixed by a conviction of unreality, while in infra-space, the demon hugs his hairy belly, kicks his hooves in the air, rolling and gasping with silent laughter.”
There is a motif, may it do ya, in Green Mile along this line...as I recall...if I'm wrong you know what to do with me. Too...in Insomnia...there seems to be the same line of thought. Where is Janice Gantry? if you're interested.
