Stephen King Adaptations: my rank from best to bleeding eyeballs bad

So, in my pre-Letterboxd-days, I watched/rewatched all of these starting the week before Halloween 2018. (I watched in order of release or airing). I watched all TV adaptations and miniseries as well. I am in the process of updating notes and fine-tuning the ratings.
Initial list/viewings spanned many platforms and took about 2-3 weeks.
My rankings are nostalgic and many are based on how well I thought they were true to the books and how the film originally spoke to me.
I have added new films as they were released or rewatched, etc.
IT was, by far, my favorite book. I've read it three times and the way the miniseries arcs the characters and captures the essence is exceptional. It's dated, for sure, but my love for it has not diminished.
Notes and reviews to be written.
