The 10 Worst Stephen King Movies Of All Time

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We here at Screen Rant love us some Stephen King, the way we like roofs over our heads and food in our bellies. There’s just something essential about his work.

However, as even the most die hard reader knows, there have been an awful lot of bad adaptations of his work. The upcoming Cell has some toxic buzz attached to it, despite the straightforward source material and the reuniting of John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, who were so effective together in 1408, another King adaptation.

Still no matter how bad Cell is, it’s certain to have lots of company. Here are The 10 Worst Stephen King Movies Of All Time.

 

1. Cell (2016)

Seventeen years after appearing together in 1408, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson reunited for 2016’s Cell. Unfortunately, this time their efforts were nowhere near as successful. The plot centers on Clay Riddell (Cusack), who’s determined to reunite with his son after a malevolent electronic signal turns cell phone users into mindless killers. Along the way, he teams up with train driver Tom McCourt (Jackson) in order to better their chances of survival. While the novel was generally well-received for it’s technophobic take on the traditional zombie trope, the movie suffered a far less positive fate.

2. Graveyard Shift (1990)

1990’s Graveyard Shift still stands as one of the worst King adaptations. In a Maine textile mill where a drifter (David Andrews) has taken a job, several overnight employees of the mill have died recently, and the egomaniacal foreman (Stephen Macht) sends the drifter—and others—down into the basement of the mill to investigate. To put it politely, the short story didn’t translate well to the screen.

It’s kind of a shame, really, because the acting in Graveyard Shift isn’t bad. The movie even performed fairly well at the box office, eventually earning over $11 million. If you’re going to make the plunge and watch, keep an eye out for the performances of both Macht and Brad Dourif. You might know Dourif better as “Wormtongue” from The Lord of the Rings, but he does an excellent turn here as a crazy exterminator.

3. Thinner (1996)

Despite having excellent source material, Tom Holland’s 1990 adaptation of Thinner just couldn’t pull it off. When obese and morally bankrupt lawyer Billy Halleck (Robert John Burke) accidentally runs over and kills a gypsy woman, he uses his court connections to get off the hook. The woman’s elderly father takes revenge by placing a curse upon Halleck, one which soon has him uncontrollably losing weight to the point of emaciation.

The premise is definitely scary, but the effect falls flat on the big screen—especially when we’re confronted with Burke in an atrociously fake latex fat suit that only gets slightly less hilarious as he sheds the pounds. The filmmakers also chose to make Billy’s wife (Lucinda Jenney) an adulterer, leaving the story without any sympathetic—or even likable—characters.

For many, the Lone Ranger and Tonto are iconic Americana. The dangerous duo, which was made up of a masked cowboy of American-European origin and his Native American sidekick, always managed to beat the bad guys on their travels in the Wild West. The characters first appeared on radio in the 1930s before making their way to a host of other media, according to The Ross Art Group.
In 1949, the Lone Ranger and Tonto made their way to television on “The Lone Ranger.” The character of the Lone Ranger was played by Clayton Moore and Tonto played by Jay Silverheels. The televised version of the Lone Ranger was a hit. It went on to run until 1957 when it was canceled.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW / YOUTUBE
Before its cancellation, cereal company General Mills commissioned posters of Moore and Silverheels in their Lone Ranger garb. People who watched the show could get the posters by sending in a boxtop from specially marked General Mills cereal and a small fee.
Most of the people who ordered the posters were likely children. When they received them, they probably tacked the posters up to their walls. When the kids got older and their interests changed, the posters came down and went into the trash.

Those who actually kept their posters, however, have a valuable antique on their hands. According to an episode of the Antiques Roadshow where a collector had a couple of the posters that were in fairly good condition, a set is worth $1200 to $1800.

‘I’ll Forever Love You, Glen’

In the new issue of Closer Weekly, Tanya Tucker wrote an emotional tribute to the love of her life, Glen Campbell, who passed away on Aug. 8, 2017, at the age of 81 following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

“I first met Glen when I was 15 in the mid-70s at the CMA Awards, then again a few years later in Las Vegas at the Desert Inn. We had a great run. We did a lot of traveling — he took me to Europe. We kissed under the Eiffel Tower. Glen always said if you kiss under the Eiffel Tower, you get to come back 20 years later with the same person. We had some of the best times, and those are the memories I hang on to now,” Tanya wrote of the “Rhinestone Cowboy” singer.

Tanya confided that she sometimes thinks of what could have been, “and I have regrets, but it is what it is. I tell my kids now, if you love somebody, don’t pick up and leave them. I said I’d always love Glen, and forever ain’t over. I’ll never get over him.”

I’m just devastated. Absolutely devastated. It’s been so hard these past several years knowing what he’s been going…

Flab To Fab: 20 Of Our Favorite Artists Who Have Seriously Cut Down On The Pounds

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

While guys like John Candy, John Belushi and Chris Farley all proved to be the exception to the rule in the world of comedy, there’s still a high standard for celebrities to be wafer thin. In fact, actresses and artists like Melissa McCarthy, Adele, Queen Latifah and even Katie Perry are all criticized for being a little too curvy and voluptuous. And, if any celeb packs on a few pounds, you can bet they’re sure to hear about from the media! So which celebrities have struggled the most with their weight over the years and which ones have seen complete transformations? From lifestyle changes like dieting and exercise to going under the knife, we uncovered many shocking celebrity weight losses that are sure to drop your jaw!

1. Alec Baldwin


Business Insider

53-year-old Alec Baldwin shed 30 pounds in four months and he couldn’t have done it in a healthier way. Diagnosed as pre-diabetic, he gave up sugar, which he said over twitter is, “truly a battle.” He also does Pilates and Spinning and would like to add more yoga to his workout regime. We’re not sure if it’s because he wants to get centered and increase flexibility or if it’s because he’s dating a 27-year-old yoga instructor!

2. Mariah Carey


Pinterest

After putting on 30 pounds during her pregnancy with twins Moroccan and Monroe, Mariah Carey felt pressure to lose the weight fast. But instead of turning to extreme measures she started following the Jenny system. And it’s not all about looking skinny for the stunning singer. Working with Jenny and the American Heart Association, Carey wants to educate Americans about the risk of heart disease and diabetes caused by unhealthy eating and exercise habits.

3. Jonah Hill


Starcrush

Rumor has it that Moneyball costar Brad Pitt is responsible for Jonah Hill’s dramatic weight loss but we’re happy to hear it was a nutritionist’s advice that helped him shed the pounds. With a little guidance in terms or what to eat and what not to eat, Hill has been able to maintain his slim physique. A love for fresh and healthy Japanese cuisine, particularly sushi, has helped the actor stay on track.

4. Ricki Lake


Top News

We all watched Ricki Lake transform on Dancing With the Stars where she reportedly lost 20 pounds but, what has she done to continue losing weight and to keep it off? She uses the food delivery service Freshology, which provides 1,400 calories a day. Healthy food helps but Lake credits her maintained weight loss to regular exercise—not calorie restriction.

Why Pyrex Is The Most Interesting ‘Antique’ Dishware In Your Kitchen

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Pyrex is a staple in many homes in the U.S. The American-made glassware is revered for its durability, affordability and usefulness. We use measuring cups, mixing bowls and bakeware bearing the famous brand name without batting an eye or thinking twice, but the unique dishware comes with a fascinating history.
The brand has been with us for more than 100 years and still remains somewhat of a staple in many homes. Its interesting history shows how improvements in the industrial realm often make their way to the home consumer. Here’s the scoop on “America’s favorite dish.”

YOUTUBE/COUNTRYCOUPONLADY
How was Pyrex invented? 
Early in the 20th century, Corning Glass Works began developing a new type of glass. The temperature-resistant glass was to be used for railroad lantern globes. In 1909, Corning began selling the glass as Nonex and CNX, according to the Corning Museum of Glass.
Corning decided to enter the home consumer goods market based on the tests of one of its scientists Jesse Littleton, according to the Kitchn. Littleton’s wife, Bessie wanted to know if Nonex would be good for cooking. Littleton brought Bessie a sawed-off battery jar. She cooked a cake in the dish, according to CMG. She discovered that her cooking times were short, the glass was easy to clean and that she could see the cake baking, which was a distinct advantage over metal bakeware and other casserole dishes.
