    I'm kinda surprised The Green Mile is getting all this love, especially against these other three movies. It's a good movie but is it that good?

    Some of you folks need to take off the Stephen King colored glasses.

    At the risk of being stoned to death, I watched the original Pet Sematary the other day and I thought it was god awful. Some of the worst acting I've ever seen in a film. This is one of those films that deserves the upcoming remake.

    You guys, The Green Mile is arguably one of the best adaptations of a King book. It's a quality film, great acting, directing. Yes, there is definitely a King effect on this board, I'm not denying that. But why all the hate for this one? It's the best of this group, in my opinion.

    Forest Gump is such a struggle to watch though Maybe I should try to give it another shot now.

    L.A Confidential is the best film in this group for my money.

    The Green Mile is a good film. I remember watching it when it came out, but I've had no desire to go back and watch it again.

    I do not hate it. I just don't like it. But then again, I do not like the novel, either, hardly made it through the book. The film put me off with that cartoonish, disney-ish, fairy tale-ish stardust coming from the protagonist's mouth. When described verbally, it was passable; but when shown, it painfully reminded me of how Hollywood the whole thing is.

    I like TGM (books and movie), but I see what you mean.
