Hollywood's Stephen King

For the past three decades, Hollywood has faithfully adapted much of Stephen King's fiction into film. Of the many major films that have been made, not one has lost money.

I found a lot of it to be very interesting, some of it to be pretentious and utter BS, but all of it is worth the read if you love Stephen King.
