Stephen's Favorite Movies
Stephen King's novellas tend to make better movies than his novels because the stories need very little trimming and his dialogue sounds just as convincing on the big screen. "Stand By Me" was successfully adapted from the same collection of King novellas. It's heart-wrenching without feeling manipulative, and one of the few films during which any man can admit shedding a tear or two.
A truly comical political satire, Strangelove's timeless success can be attributed to Peter Seller's remarkable work in multiple roles.
