I saw the 2017 adaption of Stephen King’s IT with some girlfriends, then we got cocktails and discussed it. Thanks to Rebekah Black, Tracy Martin Taylor and Adelfa Cardenas for joining me in the podcast. Especially Adelfa, who never read or saw the original IT and based her review on the video’s COVER!

Oh man, you already know how excited I am about this one. I’ve been talking about It for months, now. I told you about my college-nights with the Stephen King book and how it ruined dorm rooms for me forever (read that HERE). I followed that up by talking about It on essentially every TV and radio appearance I’ve made since (you can watch one of those HERE). And after all those months of flipping out over It, it’s finally here. If you want passes to see It EARLY and FOR FREE, Continue reading →
It isn’t easy for Stephen King fans, when we hear they’re making one of his books into a movie. We know that everything he writes will probably end up in theaters one day, but we’ve been let down so many times before.
It’s like the moment when your kid tells you she wants to do a hula-hoop routine at the school talent show. You smile and try to be encouraging, but you’ve seen her drop that hula-hoop WAY more times than you’ve seen her keep it up.
“Are you SURE, honey,” you ask her, hoping that she’ll change her mind. That’s when she senses your concern and asks, “WHY Mommy? Why SHOULDN’T I do a hula-hoop routine for the talent show?”
You, being the concerned parent, want to warn her about all the horrible things that could go wrong and how the other kids might laugh at her. You want to remind her that she’s actually not that great with a hula-hoop but you can’t bring yourself to do it.
So what happens?
You watch in horror as she drops her hula-hoop so many times during the talent show that the other parents think it’s part of her act. (True story.)
What does this have to do with the big-screen version Stephen King’s The Dark Tower? I’m not really sure but I feel much better now so thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
If you’d like to see The Dark Tower, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey EARLY and FOR FREE though, I can help. Continue reading →
I saw the trailer for the movie It today and immediately had a flashback of the book. Unlike most people, who probably envisioned Tim Curry in a clown suit, I saw my college dorm room with perfect clarity, and heard my roommate having sex in the bunk below me.
See, my roommate fell desperately in love our freshman year of college and did her best to consummate that love nightly.
In our room.
On the bottom bunk.
Those who’ve never shared a bunk bed don’t realize that nothing happens in the bottom bunk without the top bunk hearing it. I tried to clue my roommate into this one night by saying, “I know what you’re doing down there.” Continue reading →
