what film was ever better than the book??

Here are two that I think are a tie, both equally good. Blade Runner and the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick from which it was adapted. Also
Clockwork Orange a tie, I remember it being a difficult read because of many words that were made up for that world, but in a way that was kind of cool.

Two of my favorite movies. And I told GRTUD that Lord of the Rings movies were too violent? I still stand on what I stand on. See quote below.

Analogy quiz

Star Wars (older stuff) was boring... original 1977 genre I mean.

except for Return of the Jedi.

I never saw any of the new stuff.

go on, shovel on the shit.

I am an original series Star TREK fan. that series rules. I never watched more than 10 minutes of the next generation...

so what, I am a purist.

Here is an analogy test;

Golden Road is to Next Generation
as GRTUD is to:

a) Space Balls

b) Star Trek (with Bill Shatner)

c) Killer Klowns from Outer Space

d) Space Cowboys

answers must be in the form of a question.

peace.

life as a movie

Golden Road, the enlightening thing about it is that both you and GRTUD likeI to bowl, drive around......and have the occasional acid flashback. Whose are better? That may be the key.

I don't not want to cncourage or unleash this Star Wars beast you speak of.

I agree, Hal R....

I've known GRTUD for years! Know him better than he knows himself, infact. With a bit of luck, his life was ruined forever. Always thinking that just behind some narrow door in all of his favorite bars, men in red woolen shirts are getting incredible kicks from things he'll never know. He's been ranting for years about such nonsense. Bobby's bands are boring, Lord of the Rings book was boring, etc., etc. I remember thinking 'Jesus, what a terrible thing to lay on someone with a head full of acid'. Hal, you're dead on with your interpertation of The Rings Trilogy being a total psychedelic journey into the psyche of the "civilized human mind". No movie could do it justice in less than 4 hours. GRTUD I'm warning you! No goddamn posts about Star Wars unless it's more honorable than this "Rings" shite, for fuck sake! If you so much as utter "Space Balls" so help me.......don't tell me these things. Not now man.

Constant Adrenaline & Donuts....

I happen to like constant adrenaline highs, with donuts preferably (but I'm with ya' on the violence). Just typing the original post was a pure rush! I'm working on one to piss all the Star Wars people off next.

This aggression will not stand, man!

MAJOR SHIT for GRTUD. The Fellowship books were an amazing long term detailed epic adventure and built a fantasy world with all those great characters. The trilogy wasgroundbreaking. I enjoyed the movies but thought they relied too much on constant adrenaline highs and violence.

Better Than Book

I know I'll get MAJOR shit for this but, I liked "Fellowship of the Rings" better as a movie than book. To me the book was drowning in descriptive adjectives and micro textures narratives. I know, I know, it was amazing but to me, BORING as well. I've had insomnia for years and when I was in high school, I used to read the first chapter when I couldn't sleep. Made Hemmingway seem like a casual observer.
