    I still think it was funny at the back and forth name calling between Kubrick and King after King found out Kubrick was significantly changing the story. The funniest one was Kubrick saying that King " was probably the best world builder in fiction, but cant figure out how to close the best stories ever created because deep down he is just a hack." Its actually true. The middle and ending of IT really brings that point home.

    I will give you IT. There is one part that is pretty messed up and makes me wonder what is on King's server that is in some hidden files.

    The ending in the book The Shining is much better. The movie is just bad. He freezes to death and is somehow in an old photo too? The story is called The Shining and is supposed to be about the boy. The movie changed all of that and made it about the dad.

    Most critics and horror fans wouldn't agree but to each his own i guess.Personally i loved it but i'm a huge Kubrick fan.The ending is about reincarnation.

    Im really not a big Kubrick fan to be honest. I thought Clockwork Orange was okay, Eyes wide shut was Stupid, and Full Metal Jacket was very overrated and probably should've ended after the basic training part. I never have seen Dr Strangelove or 2001 Space Odyssey. The best movie that Ive seen that he directed was Spartacus.

    The Shinning was probably the best Stephen King "inspired" movie until Gerald's Game and It chapter 1. Ive been on the fence about which is better between the Kubrick Shinning or the miniseries that King produced. One is a mindless horror film (Kubrick) and the other is a long creepy story (miniseries). I think both are well done, but I would be lying if I didn't say I would watch Kubrick's film again before watching a faithful 6 hour miniseries. I think a proper remake is probably needed though.

    I agree Full Metal Jacket has a great first 20 minutes, beyond that meh. 2001 was boring. Eyes Wide Shut, I could not make it through the whole movie.

    The casting was all wrong in Kubrick's The Shining. A remake of The Shining with today's technology could make the topiary scenes pretty cool and scary. Although I believe they would screw up casting again and put in the usual suspects for casting.

    Gerald's Game was well done. It Chapter 1 was well done. I thought Misery was well done especially the casting. The Green Mile was probably the best King "inspired" movie.

    To be fair... Noone really thinks of Stand by me and Shawshank as Stephen King works because there isn't some mystical force at hand. It is kinda funny that Stranger Things isn't a work from Stephen King.

    But if I would say the 5 best and 5 worst Stephen King Flicks:

    Best:

    1) Shawshank
    2) Standby me
    3) It chapter 1
    4) Geralds Game
    5) Green Mile

    Worst

    1) Maximum Overdrive
    2) langoliers
    3) Dark Tower
    4) Secret Window
    5) Cujo

    The Mist Im just not a huge fan of, and Carrie is kinda meh to me.
