True. Maybe I should have taken The Long Walk, you know, a Night Journey.

May have got a chance to see some Sleeping Beauties, but it would probably have made Rose Madder.

Personally, I find it a lot harder to sleep during the summer. Different Seasons can make a hell of a lot of difference.

Wait, I know how we can measure how good the adaptation is....

On a scale from Lawnmower Man ('92) to Shawshank Redemption ('94), where does it land?

Maximum Overdrive

(Stupid autocorrect tried to change that to Maximum Overdraft. Which is an entirely different movie about a man who really needs to get his finances under control)

Lawnmower Man was 9 out of 10 stars
Shawshank Redemption was 9.1 stars out of ten

What the fuck! Stars don't have that kind of resolution. Your question is impossible to answer.

WHERE?

Don't tell me. Brett Leonard reviews films of the 90s.

Maximum Overdrive. King claims to have been so coked up that he doesn't remember much about making it. And it shows in the trailer.

He said the same about writing "Cujo." and "Tommyknockers".

The guy did a lot of coke. Probably doesn't remember the 70s and 80s at all. Just went to bed one night in 1975 and woke up a best selling author in 1992.

To paraphrase a joke from John Mulaney--

Fan: How do I become a best selling author?
King: Get drunk and do a lot of coke until you are in an almost constant state of blackout.
Fan: That works?
King: It didn't NOT work...
