    I re-watched the original after having not seen it in decades. It has not held up well. Comes off as low budget even with its big-name talent. It certainly has its moments but mostly cringe worthy...

    If you have extremely low expectations, then you won't be too disappointed. There are a few unintentional Ed Wood-like moments like the scene with the cat, but this is basically typical soulless...

    Demystifying Pennywise by filling in a lot of background material is the typical lazy Hollywood approach. There is no plausible explanation for Pennywise. That's part of what makes him interesting....

    Just started re-reading this BoB after completing Insomnia. What strikes me is how much tighter the writing style is than Insomnia. Insomnia was often a long-winded book that should have been 100...

    Ralph Roberts is one of King's more likeable characters. I always envisioned him being played by Jack Lemmon. The book itself is middling. It's unfortunate that it contains so much in the way of...

    Not to judge a book by its cover, but I really don't care for the version being shown by B&N which I assume is the final version. Seems more appropriate for a Murakami-type novel. The plot doesn't...

    I had forgotten all about "In Sunlight or In Shadow." And that has only been pending six years or so.
