In the late 80's a young film maker named Frank Darabont paid Stephen King a dollar to adapt his short story "The Lady in the Room," into a short film when he was a student in film school.  King had a deal going where aspiring film makers could make short films out of his story for a dollar.  It was called a dollar baby.  Most times, King was disappointed with what was made.  Yet when it came to Darabont, he liked it and thought highly of it.  Years later Frank …

In its simplest form The Green Mile is about an eye for an eye ... but when have you known Stephen King to be simple? Stephen King ... the man who gets paid fifty thousand dollars for writing "boo" on a napkin. Stephen King.

Pros: Great Story, Good Acting, WELL DONE     Cons: Kind of long, one really gross scene     The Green Mile astonished me. I had heard from friends that it was a good show. I had heard it was over 3 hours long. I had heard that it was touching and poignant. I heard it was a prison movie.      Stephen King. Death Row. Prison Movie. How do I get to touching and poignant from there? Well, I go and sit in the movie theater today for more than …
