They also discuss Marriage Story from director Noah Baumbach, which stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson. As well as Harriet, the new biopic centering around Harriet Tubman starring Cynthia Erivo, and The King, a Henry V war epic on Netflix starring Timothée Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, and Robert Pattinson.

I’m a fan of the impressions. Keep em coming!
My choice is MISERY, which in my opinion makes what was otherwise a cringeworthy Stephen King story into something powerful and compelling. Kathy Bates is so good at drawing the line between angelic and demonic, and James Caan is at no point an imbecile, yet you feel how impossible his situation is the whole way through.
I can’t believe Jon isn’t a King fan…I would have assumed the opposite. Anyway, I have to go with THE DEAD ZONE, which isn’t just a great King movie, it’s a superb David Cronenberg film no one likes to talk about for some reason. Christopher Walken is so good in the part, and don’t forget Martin Sheen. It’s a terrific movie that blows the book away in my opinion.
Some of the obvious movies include The Shining, Carrie, and Shawshank Redemption, but if we’re going for deeper cuts I really want to shout out Graveyard Shift, which is a lovable low-budget horror movie where the change from the book is almost a joke unto itself. Very enjoyable.
(big fan of these question of the week segments by the way!)
