Dune - the David Lynch version.
but the film is truly shocking. amazing, but terrible.
The book was a real page-turner (if a tad lacking in irony and humour) when i first read it. I might find it shite if i returned to it now though.
and the movie was unwatchable.
Carl Haaisen wrote an incredibly funny book called Strip Tease ...and not even new and improved Demi Moore titties could save the movie.
One of the worst films I've ever seen. I can't imagine the book's much better - if 'Atreides' is anything to go by it's probably full of crap classical references that are there to make the author sound 'clever'.
the best sci fi i've read...but I get your reservations ms deadcat
...i've seen too many women with beards lately...
I have nothing against hairy women, but she really smelt. Just because your appearance is unconventional doesn't mean you shouldn't wash...
so so many.
That was good.
christopher walken is a legend
i think the majority of stephen kings book -> film have been great.
but yes pet cemetary is plain awful.
I remember reading Shawshank..it's a short story..made into a 3 hour movie -wtf?!
and they combined a few. this could be wrong, its one of the few stephen king books ive not read. awesome film though.
a terrible terrible film!
and what?? its eugene tombs in it! (from x files) therefore, excellent.
if not mistaken, had 4 short stories...something about summer, winter, spring and fall...remember the one about the boy and the nazi? That's all I can remember.
Had shawshank, Stand by Me and, FUCK YES! - almost forgot!, Apt Pupil, which Bryan (Usual Suspects) Singer made into a fab film!
Green Mile was defo based on a serialised novella though.
Until Get Shorty, which was really cool, there were several attempts to do Elmore Leonard books into movies...all bad. Jackie Brown (Rum Punch) was ok. But all the rest were bad.
that uses an Elmore Leonard book as source material. Get Shorty is great too though.
who put me in prison a copy of Maximum Bob - about a con who goes after the judge(bob) because he max'es every one out - but I chickened out.
is possibly the worst film i've ever seen.
i like the film
Nicolas Cage should be shot for that abomination.
The Harry Potter Books.
was just a bound screenplay anyway. They hardly ruined a classic.
and was so disappointed by the film. Like you say, it should have been an awesome film but they fucked it up badly.
and a great film.
it has sandy from th OC in it, and lenoard nimoy. That tells you what its like.
