Default Movies that Stephen King ruined with the endings

Im gonna have to say:
  • Tommyknockers
  • IT
  • Dreamcatcher
  • The Langoliers
There are probably more I could add on to the list, but its always pissed me off that he makes great plot lines then ruins it with a stupid sci-fi monster ending. For example I watched "IT" tonight for the first time in years and forgot how it ends.....




yea...






a giant spider























eloehls!

i think m night shamalamadingdong should rewrite all of stephen king's crappy endings for him, and instead of the evil things turning out to be fantasy monsters it would turn out to be a figment of their imagination or have some other kind of unexpected ironic real world explanation.

get stephen and mr. shamamalalmamalalalmmmmananana on the phone. we have a blockbuster to make.

Those shitty computer animated meatballs that ate up the airport in Langoliers was one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.


Tremors was a cooler movie.

Wow, you are in my head. But you forgot about

The Stand - The hand of god kills the evil people. Literally. I didn't just make that up.
Maximum Overdrive - stuff just stops killing people, and a ludicrous explanation is given. Something about a comet.
Graveyard Shift - It was a giant rat. The end.

But he does have some hits too.

Shawshank Redemption
The Green Mile
Carrie
Stand By Me

Can't say those don't have kick ass endings.

The absolute worst is when he tries to cram religion in his story lines. The first 500 pages of the Stand are incredible, then it becomes a religious war. Why?

i forgot about the IT spider. damn.. i had set up a mental block from scene shittiness.
i remember overdrive. and that was supposed to be "king done right"
dream catcher wasnt so bad to me. since aliens were established early in the story.

misery had a good ending
how did cujo end? ruined pumas? i forget



cosign fermi handshaka

either Mnight or george lucas to make the monster look better than a poweranger episode/

King's books are in 90% of the cases alot better and good until the end.. "Dream Catcher" works really well when reading the original book but the movie was really wack from the last half of it.

The Stand and It endings are just as disappointing if not more so considering those novels are like 2000 pages long.

^^ i didn't say that this is the case for every book he wrote but to bash King for the movies is a little harsh imo..

I don't think so. King movies usually follow the stories pretty closely, there are only a few loose adaptations. The simple fact of the matter is, he is pretty hit and miss with his endings.

WORD UP on this thread, I felt exact the same way when I was watching IT and The Dreamcatcher....

The Shining (both '80 and '97 version) was an awesome movie though , the '80 version bein' the best....

I've watched Misery a month ago after I've read the book and it was a good movie but it just can't match up with the book's ultimate grimeness during the whole story....

Cujo is just straight up boring , I mean a St. Bernard dog covered up with blood and mud ain't scary at all plus that little boy irritates me in that movie with his peeping voice....

Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption and The SHining are the best King movies I've seen so far even though The Shining (the '80 version) goes it's own way instead of following the book, the characters aren't even quite the same as they're described in the book....

Those aren't even his good stuff. The only books he pedestals as being great are the gunslinger books, which are at least as good as the lord of the rings in terms of epic sagas. What it lacks in depth (lord of the rings went too far) he makes up for in complex plots that are trippy as hell and cobble together totally random fantasy into a rich story.

Stephen Kings a good book writer, obviously his movies aren't that great. Its very hard to portray his horror style in film IMO.

I've aleways prefered his books over the movies. I agree that there's just no way that his books can be correctly translated into film, The actors almost never do the characters justice and although the movies can be entertaining, they are never scary. If I want to be entertained, I'll watch a Stephen King movie. If I wanna be scared outta my own damn house... I'll read a Stephen King Book.
