    Fun list to read! And. . . Leave Maximum Overdrive alone! Call it nostalgia, being an AC/DC fan, or just plain bad taste but I LOVE IT! Coke fueled Stephen King in the director's chair? Yes Please!

    I probably would have tweaked a few things, but some of them I have not watched so I can't make a complete case. But all in all, I thought it was a good list.

    I agree with ranking Mr. Mercedes higher but this was written in July of last year. So season 2 hadn't aired yet. Although that is mentioned in the comments.
    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 found this King comment interesting: “That doesn’t mean you’re going to have the occasional thing that’s just a train wreck like ‘Dreamcatcher,’ because that happens, right?”

    When the film came out I remember King gushing non-stop about how much he liked it. Wonder what changed his mind or if he was just trying to promote the film.

    Unpopular opinion: I actually enjoyed Dreamcatcher. I think about that movie often.

    I'm not sure how good the movie could've been, based on that...book. Still, Morgan Freeman's eyebrows are a treat.

    I liked the book quite a bit. Mr. Gray is probably one of my favorite King villains. I loved the whole bit with him being obsessed with bacon.

    Spoiler:
    The ending in the film to me was just ridiculous but apparently King suggested it(?). Also Gray speaking with the British accent was bizarre and and turning into a giant shit weasel to bite people was also random as hell.
