What Do You Want to See Turned Into a Movie?
As a consequence of George’s [Skirge] well deserved ridicule in this week’s Blu-ray Releases thread, I realized I was a sucker for epics and I am guessing George is as well (*cough* Waterworld *cough*). You may further mock me for leaping from Waterworld and Dances with Wolves to timeless classics such as The Battle of Algiers, Lawrence of Arabia, Spartacus, Ben-Hur and Braveheart but I did just that. While reminiscing, my mind wandered to thoughts of what other epic films I would like to see made.
I realize everyone’s definition of what entails an “epic” film will vary but here is my list.
- Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson
- Imajica, by Clive Barker
- Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert A. Heinlein
- God of War, video game series
- The Stars My Destination, by Alfred Bester (no Jumper was not good enough)
- Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card
- The Dark Tower Saga, by Stephen King (broken into at least 3-4 movies)
What book, video game, comic book, graphic novel, cartoon, etc do you want to see turned into a movie?
