As we were watching Stephen King’s latest movie release Pet Sematary, which was somehow a good movie, we decided that we needed to research a bit more about the iconic fictional writer.
I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said that literally all of our favorite movies were somehow written by King. Yeah, some of them we already knew about such as The Shining, Staring Jack Nicholson, Misery, starring James Caan and Kathy Bates, and Secret Window, Starring Johnny Depp.
However, other movies took us by surprise, such as:
The Dark Tower – Starring Mathew McConaughey (hope I got the spelling right) and Idris Elba
Yes, it was a terrible, terrible … terrible movie. But it was written by the King and you probably didn’t know about it.
1408 – Starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson
I’d have to give it to him though, this was one of the best Mind-Fuck/Horror movies ever created! Is it only me or John Cusack is one of the most underrated actors of all time? If Matthew Broderick could make it, so does Cusack!
Hearts in Atlantis – Starring Anthony Hopkins
Surprise, Surprise! Stephen King was the writer of this magnificent movie! And yes it’s not like the ones he usually writes, however, coming to think about it; it kind of makes sense!
The Green Mile – Starring Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan
One of these movies that will always be on everybody’s favorite list! We’ve got to say though, that the star of this movie was the late Michael Clarke Duncan and not Tom Hanks. Very nice of Hanks to give the leading role to someone else though!
And with the big finale and the most shocking of them all:
Shawshank Redemption – Starring Andy Dufresne. Oh, we mean Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman
Which one of these did you know about?
In a nutshell, we are a bunch of opinionated writers that care about quality content. Our team is small, but it’s a team of people who really do care about what they do. Passionate and dedicated. Honest and respectful. Professional but informal. Quirky and personal.
