That surprises me - I actually enjoyed this collection - so nice to have a reread of the classic stories in one book before they were changed for movies!
I have always enjoyed The Green Mile movie version - apart from (obviously) the inner dialogue I think it's very true to the book.
I also feel the same way about the The Shawshank Redemption....

I'm almost afraid to say this hah but I enjoyed 1408 as a movie much more than as a book! It gave me the chills :)

I think he should do another one like this but without the older short stories, just his thoughts on certain classic movies as well as movies he particularly likes or doesn't like.
