I like some REM, but I mostly like their early 90s material. 

I never got the appeal of the Clash or Smiths.

Perfect summation of that film you gave. Kudos! 3D Really badly done, kids in the main roles miscast, clown not scary as he should be. He should be frightful (very) AND funny, not just funny. I'd give "It" (2017) 1/5.

Why not? One could draw these parallels between Stephen King and the Beach Boys: The material came from a brilliant mind that have been to dark places. Like the Beach Boys songs, Stephen King's films could be broken down into categories where there are offerings that:

Are very good, but not as well-known (Stand By Me, The Green Mile, Misery and 1408);

Appeal to the mainstream audiences (It, Carrie, The Shining) and then;

Are intentionally less serious offerings (Creepshow, Creepshow 2, Maximum Overdrive, The Mangler).

The Beach Boys are referenced in his books and films. I am a big fan of both the Beach Boys and Stephen King. Maybe it is sort of finding a balance in life? To the casual fan the Beach Boys were upbeat and positive and Stephen King was dark and creepy. It is only when you delve into their work a bit more you find that they each wove in and out of their publicly pigeonholed genres quite a bit.

Well said, Rick5150. Except we disagree about "Stand By Me", "1408" & esp. "The Green Mile". Imo they're not "very good".

I really liked 1408.

In fact, 1408 and 409 are both guilty pleasures of mine.

I loved 1408.  And I saw you had Stand By Me as not as well known.  I think its a very well known movie, but I'm not sure how many people know its based on a King work.

Also worth noting that "Catch a Wave" and "Don't Back Down" are referenced in the IT novel...while "I Get Around" is in the original TV movie

Stand By Me was the first time I ever heard Hushabye by The Mystics.   I had the soundtrack on record when I was a kid, but I think it was left off.   I didn't discover until many years later that The Beach Boys covered it.

The Mystics' "Hushabye" is total bore in compare with BBs. Zzz.

While I prefer The Beach Boys' cover, I respectfully disagree.

When I was much younger and a newer fan, I used to kind of afford extra deference in my mind to the original versions of songs that the Beach Boys or Beatles covered in the 60s, even though I liked the BB/Beatles versions much more.

Then I got over it and realized that, while ample credit should absolutely be given to the original writer and (usually) performers, just about every time the Beach Boys or Beatles covered a *vocal* song in the 60s (barring the couple times the BBs covered the Beatles), their version was *the* version and was usually better.

"You Really Got a Hold On Me", "Twist and Shout", "Baby It's You", "Then I Kissed Her", "Hushabye", "Cottonfields" (either version), and so on. All, to me, the definitive versions of those songs.

I agree with both Beatles and BB covers.   Although, I think the Boys lost their knack for covers once the 70s dawned, as there's not a single BB cover that I can think of since 1970 that I prefer to the original.

To my ears, the Mystics' version of Hushabye sounds very, very dated and one-dimensional. the Beach Boy's version sounds timeless and lush.
