    The Green Mile really gets to me too. Blubbing like a baby every time.

    I'm a big fan of Stephen King's books and The Green Mile was a great film adaptation, stayed very true to the book.
    Some film adaptations of SK's books haven't been done as well.

    I gather they adapted the Dark Tower series into a film. Can't imagine how you ever could. Bloody long read, some bits better than others, superb ending though.

    Both great films and what a superb story teller Stephen King is. If you like those two you will also enjoy "Misery', another Stephen King book adaptation with James Caan and Kathy Bates (who won an Oscar for her performance);

    Don't watch the trailer on IMDB. Too many spoilers!

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    The Shawshank Redemption is one of the few films that I can watch over and over again. I must have watched it 5 or 6 times. I will give it a miss for a few years now though.

    I might watch Green Mile again some time. It has been a long time since I've watched that.

    I bought a book by Stephen King in a local charity shop. It was part auto-biography and part 'novel-writing guide'. Interesting stuff. I must unearth it from wherever I stored it and read it again.

    Shawshank Redemption is wildly overrated.

    It, The Mist, Christine are where you want to go.

    I always end up tuning in in the middle, the mouse scene. I've never seen the whole thing.

    You know that Shawshank is a great film as it's nearly two and half hours but never seems like it as its so involving.

    On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft - excellent book, well worth a revisit.

    I found Green Mile engaging but ultimately tedious... but then again, I find Tom Hanks tedious... particularly when he's playing a bloke struggling to pee. I expect the book is much better.
