I still don't know if I liked the movie ending better than the novella ending, or not. The Mist was a good movie for sure, but I wish it had been done with a higher budget; Darabont did it on the cheap.
I didn't HATE the movie version, but I certainly wish I'd seen it BEFORE reading it. If I'd not read it first, I may have liked the movie version more than I do. I kind of classify it as one of his mediocre translations.
Shawshank is number one on my list of his, followed closely by The Green Mile.
I've seen and enjoyed most on Sailor's list. Carrie (the original, still haven't seen anything thereafter) was my introduction to King when I was young.
As far as creepshow goes, I still haven't seen it yet. One of the few of his I seem to keep missing out on I guess. Should try to rectify that soon.
As for the original topic, Under the Dome, I'm about 125 pages into the book, and it's just not grabbing me like I hoped. It is so long though (almost 900 pages) that perhaps it just doesn't really take off quite as fast. So far I'm only mildly entertained with it, but will keep trodding through and hope it improves.
