shawshank redemption - shawshank redemption
my all time favorite would be the shawshank redemption. The Shawshank Redemption is a 1994 movie, written and directed by Frank Darabont, based on the Stephen King novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. The film stars Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne and Morgan Freeman as Ellis "Red" Redding. The plot of Shawshank revolves around Andy Dufresne's life in prison after being convicted of the murder of his wife and her lover. Despite a poor showing in its theatrical release (partially due to competition from other then-current films such as Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction, and Speed), Shawshank enjoyed a remarkable life on cable television, home video, and DVD. It has since been widely recognized as one of the most beloved, inspirational, and popular movies ever made. In 1999, film critic Roger Ebert listed Shawshank on his "Great Movies" list,[1] and in reader polls by the British film magazine Empire, the film ranked fifth in 2004 and first in 2006 on the lists for greatest movie of all time. The film has also repeatedly been voted by the registered users of the Internet Movie Database as one of the greatest movies ever made. According to the database's list of "Top 250 Movies of All Time", it is one of only two movies with at least a 9.1 average rating (the other being The Godfather),[2] and it has the most votes of any of the movies on the list. As of recent, Shawshank has achieved a rating of 9.2, making it the highest rated film on IMDB. However, IMDB still lists it as having a 9.1 rating on the page that contains the list of the 250 top-rated films of all time. This matter has yet to be corrected by IMDB staff.[3] It is also the top rated movie of all time on the Yahoo movies database. In the 1994 Academy Awards the movie was nominated for seven awards (Best Picture, Best Actor–Morgan Freeman, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Original Score, and Best Sound) but, in the shadow of 1995's big winner Forrest Gump, failed to win a single one. Darabont secured the film adaptation rights in 1987 from Stephen King after impressing the author with his short film adaptation of "The Woman in the Room" in 1983. This is one of the more famous Dollar Deals made by King with aspiring filmmakers.

Desperation is my favorite Stephen King book. Wasn't terribly impressed with the movie, but I did enjoy it. I think the Shining, both the movie and the miniseries are my favorite of the medium.

Ive loved every Stephen King book ive read. From any author i always prefer the books to the movies. But i guess my favourite Stephen King book would have to be Cujo simply because it was the first Stephen King book i read and from that time i have loved every book of his

i like him very much! Stephen Edwin King was born in Portland, Maine in 1947, the second son of Donald and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury King. After his parents separated when Stephen was a toddler, he and his older brother, David, were raised by his mother. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father's family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut.

My favorite is "It". When I was reading it alone at night I kept looking over my shoulder. I also like "The Body", "Dreamcatcher" and "Apt Pupil".

For book, I'd have to say my favorite is The Stand. For movie, that's a hard one. Do you count the serial program Kingdom Hospital? Because that's my all time favorite thing Stephen has done, ever.

I would have to say "The Stand" I read all his books all the time. He is one of my favorite horror authors, since I've had kids, I can't seem to keep up with reading much, although I have some of his books I haven't read yet!

Mine is probably "The Shining" or "Pet Cemetary" or "It". "It" scared me so badly when I was younger that I couldn't even watch 10 seconds of it, and the same goes for Pet Cemetary! I looove scary movies though!
