I saw the film adaption of the Green Mile before I read the book. I found the film to be a pretty accurate representation of the book. The one point it deviated from the book I actually liked the film more. It was the way in which Paul found out about John Coffey's innocence. I rather liked the idea of John Coffey showing Paul what he couldn't tell him. On the flip side I read the book Misery before I saw the movie and I liked the book better. It was so much more thrilling and suspenseful to follow along with the character as he slowly realized what was happening to him. The movie went by too fast. I've seen Shawshank Redemption but never read the book, didn't know it was a Stephen King novel though. I loved the movie. I also saw the film adaptation of Secret Window and it creeped me out big time.

Not quite, the name of the movie was The Number 23, and it was a pretty good one.
