    I have to agree, Brian. Very cool! I was twelve. Means a lot to me too.

    That second sentence should be "Jesus, does anyone?"
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I guess it's like Lord of the Rings. A lot of the Tolkien fans loathe the Peter Jackson films.

    I do wonder why King hates The Shining if he's going to praise stuff like The Dark Tower film or shows like The Mist. I'm no fan of Kubrick's film but I'd say it's far more reverential to what he wrote than those other examples. (Although maybe it's just a formality on King's part, him dissing stuff in the social media age would probably cause a fair amount of unwanted controversy.)

    I believe he "plays ball" by being positive during the initial release (and prerelease) period, when his participation in promotion will have an effect, and out of respect for the producers/filmmakers. As for Kubrick's film, I wonder how long King waited to begin trashing it (perhaps he played ball for a while then, too).

    Speaking of things I'm too lazy to research myself, I wonder what King adaptations predate Kubrick's; is it possible that King was actually surprised that an adaptation could turn out to be unfaithful to his work (certainly a frequent occurrence later on)?

    Carrie is the only King movie that predates The Shining.

    That's the main problem. He also didn't like Wendy becoming a dishrag/zombie (I forget his exact phrasing). I forget how King described the overall problem, but if I were to describe the change, I would say Kubrick changed the story's heart from one of love to one of distance/alienation.

    That's right! Me mentioned that to Eli Roth or Mick Garris. Cant remember which. Kubrick treated her like shit too! "My hair is falling out, Stanley!" "Just ignore her, Jack"!
