Top 5 Worst Stephen King Adaptions

When Stephen King is done well it is amazing. When it is done poorly they can be some of the worst films. Sadly those terrible films greatly outnumber the good ones. So much so that I could not hope to see them all so if you notice a truly terrible Stephen King film not on here I believe you. There’s just a good chance I just haven’t seen it yet. Remember there are other years and almost certainly enough material for more lists on this subject.

Top 5 Best Stephen King Films

Let’s get one thing straight, I realize this list of best Stephen King films isn’t terribly mind-blowing. What I’m putting on my list is probably what 90% of other people would put on their lists. But they’re all just that good, there are others I may like as much as these but the entries here are clearly the best. What may be interesting is to see what exact order these Stephen King movies come in because before writing I never really had them specified in any particular way. So let’s get started.

Eric’s Guide Through the ‘Alien’ Series

The “Alien” series is one of my favorites even though I have to admit the amount of good ones is majorly outnumbered by the bad ones. This is one of the first horror series I could say I was a fan of and tracked down all of the films. Now in my house my dad had a rule we could (if we were 16+) could rent just about anything we wanted, but if it was a dark/gory we had to space it out. 2 horrors film in a row and we’d have to rent something like a comedy. This is also one of few times I went behind his back to finish the series in one go. My mom at the time didn’t really care what we rented so when I went up to her place to visit for the weekend I rented “Alien 3” to complete the chain. Anyways, I’ll be going from Best to worst for this one so let’s get started.

Top 5 Films About 50 Foot Women On-Screen

To say I’ve seen a couple of movies would be a bit of an understatement in the same way as saying a 50 foot woman is a bit worrisome. One sub-genre of films that I’ve seen a surprising large amount of is the giant woman film. Unlike vampires or werewolves this isn’t exactly a well-represented monster. I honestly can’t even think of ever seeing a list like this on other film sites so here’s my unique contribution to film discussion. Now here’s the really interesting thing, none of these movies are really all that good. The best one is just OK, but it’s an interesting enough idea that I honestly think COULD work. Maybe one day it will.

Eric’s Guide Through the Universal Frankenstein Series

Before all the other long running franchises like “Nightmare on Elm Street” or “Friday the 13th,” Universal’s Frankenstein series was King. Before all the other long running franchises like “Nightmare on Elm Street” or “Friday the 13th,” Universal’s Frankenstein series was King.

Frankenstein needs no introduction, but despite how ingrained in the popular culture how many have actually watched all the films? Other question, how many do you think there are? 8, (although one could argue which ones count and which don’t I’ll have my own criteria but before I start to ramble)… 8 Frankenstein films at a time when Hollywood was rarely certain of the viability of sequels. As with of these kinds of articles I’m going to list them off from best to worst and hopefully help you decide which films are worth your time. However, despite my own feelings on these films I feel like you should watch them all so I’ll skip my advice portion this time.

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal Is ‘Stronger’ Than Ever

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal delivers so many great performances that cinephiles, casual moviegoers and the industry are united in admiration, With few Oscar nominations, it seems like he is taken for granted. After Leonardo DiCaprio won an Oscar, many Millennial movie fans have cited Mr. Gyllenhaal as the young and talented actor overdue for a win. I couldn’t agree more. I first noticed his acting ability alongside Laura Dern and Chris Cooper in the historical space drama “October Sky” (which was a family favorite in the Miles household).
