That guy's a freak! What's all that crap about Vietnam? What does anything have to do with Vietnam?
The Dude Abides!
Oh and in the tie category, I'd have to say, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" or The Vegas Book, as it was often referred. Interesting that we are here discussing two books I really never thought would become movies (Fellowship of the Rings and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) because I just couldn't picture in my mind how it would come about. The Vegas movie had all kind of social / cultural baggage to drag across a country's mindset that was shifting faster than presidential canidate's stand on gay marriage and tax cuts. I was surprised that it wasn't a crime just to buy tickets! This irrational fear of addiction is very ironic considering the ape that's now on the monkey's back. One Ring to rule them all.....

You're not wrong, you're just an asshole! And the analogy thing is all wrong too, man. What the fuck are talking about? What is, Star Trek (w/Shatner)? That's the correct answer! Just calm down, man.

?????Killer Klowns from Outer Space?!?!?!?!?!?!? Most definitely!

The new Harry Potter
Saw II and III
.......a few movies I'd like to see made....
The Hobbit - Directed by Peter Jackson
Blade 4 - or/and a continuation of Blade The Series
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.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

Walt Whitman-Song of Myself
also... even though the book was excellent... and even though king didn't like the original, but instead went on to make a LAME remake...
"the (kubrick) shining".
The Godfather, the book was good but the movie was better
