The Institute: Book Review

In a career that spans over five decades, Stephen King has been terrifying his readers.

Doctor Sleep Movie Review

✶✶✶1/2

Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining has been regarded as one of the greatest horror films of all-time. Loosely based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, Kubrick’s vision focused more on the psychological thrills of the story, challenging the viewers to question what they saw was real or illusion. The movie as an adaptation has been vehemently opposed by fans of the book, however, the film on its own is nothing short of a directorial masterpiece.

I’m pretty sure it’ll take me a month to read because it’s massive. What do you guys think? Should I re-read it and prep for the film but … Continue reading Things That Ruined My Life Today…

First Dark Tower Trailer Doesn’t Ruin My Life

Over the weekend I saw an article online that said the first trailer to The Dark Tower movie could possibly be in front of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and I immediately got nervous. Like super nervous where my hands started sweating a little and my chest tightened. Dramatic? Sure. Truthful? For the most part. There was nothing I wanted less than the Dark Tower trailer to lead into Guardians for … Continue reading First Dark Tower Trailer Doesn’t Ruin My Life

No Comics Just the It Trailer

Seriously, everything. I haven’t been able to shake this … Continue reading No Comics Just the It Trailer

Balloons In the Dinning Room

I figured with today being new Stephen King book day why not try and dedicate another day to Uncle Stevie, here at I Am Geek. While I’m still putting my time in with The Knife of Never Letting Go, a book that was supposed to be a placeholder that I’m actually really enjoying, it looks like End of Watch won’t be started to this weekend or early next week. I’m … Continue reading Balloons In the Dinning Room
