    Not since “The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon” has anything written by King so thoroughly lost its shit as it nears the end.

    Holy shit, most of the films King listed were horrible (save for Mr. Fox, District 9 and maybe a few others) before pulling out The Hurt Locker as his #1? How could he even tolerate something like 2012 after seeing Kathryn Bigelow’s masterpiece?

    King has written before about his love for big summer blockbusters. 2012 being on that list doesn’t surprise me.
