Is it simply a question on quantity winning out? Not to say that Stephen King stories haven't been adapted into some great movies (Stand By Me, Shawshank, The Green Mile, Misery, etc.), but I was expecting a slightly closer race than this. Granted, he only received 31% of the vote to win the poll, but with 8 choices, that was more than enough to handily take it. Philip K. Dick nabbed second with 17%, and "other" took third with 11%. So, Other voters, who were your picks?
I went with Elmore Leonard - some great movies have beenmade of his stories (Get Shorty, Jackie Brown, 3:10 to Yuma), but I've even enjoyed some crappy movies made from his works, including The Big Bounce and Touch (you win a prize if you're the other person in the world who saw that).
New poll is about - what else? - the Ladies of the 90s Tournament, going on right now (and for the next few weeks). There were several names thrown out as ladies that were left off the bracket, some who could be argued to even be amongst the higher tier of seeds. Alas, cuts were made, some were forgotten, and some were outright nixed from the get-go. I've compiled a list of some of the bigger names and/or lovelier gals from those mentioned - who has the biggest axe to grind?
