Anonymous Boxer is our host. If you wish to play. Post a clip on your site. Try to make it 3 minutes or less, then stop by Boxer's site say I'm up, with the title of your movie. The topic for this week is: Best Book adaptation.
There are so many good movies based on books. An example would be Jaws a very good book and a great movie. Although the time it came out, I was miffed that Hooper didn't die in the end as he did in the book. Anyway wanting to avoid a jinx with someone, I'd decided to go a different direction.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: A great book and an all right movie. I actually keep a copy of the book in my office. It's a good reminder, that no matter how comfortable you feel, there's always someone out there, who wouldn't think twice about vaporizing you so he could put in his own hyperspatial express route. Also, the phrases "don't panic" and "so long and thanks for all the fish" are routinely used in my world. Enjoy!
