For me:

The Shining (1980) - classic movie
The Langoliers - tv min-series was made in '95 it is based on time travel, very good
It - another mini-series with Tim Curry as Pennywise
The Mist - cool movie, awesome ending
The Stand - yet another mini-series
Misery - great movie


Iron Hide

It - Good but could have been better (book was f**king awesome)

It scared the shit out of me when I first saw it.

The Stand
The Shinning (though this is not very loyal to the book).

I'm anxious about the adaptation of The Dark Tower series, which is my favorite book series.

I'm just gonna throw in here, despite it being pretty much wholly unrelated, that I've met Stephen King numerous times.

I like the changes.  Kubrick explained the changes in interviews - like killing off Halloran gave more tension.

I bet he would seem very down to earth like he does in interviews.

Nope.  Only King I've read is It.
