I remember that TV version of Dune, and you're right, it wasn't half bad. The movie should have been buried before it was born.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>The Godfather and Marathon Man were two that worked, IMHO.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Never read the Marathon Man novel but I liked the film. A superb thriller. Was that a Steven King story? Can't remember.<br><br>I read The Godfather books after I'd seen the movies, so I wasn't affected by the way they translated to the screen. I found I really enjoyed Puzo's style of writing though.<br><br>Both stories were good yarns, well writ. <br><br>Check out Ghost Story by Peter Straub if you haven't read it. I think it was made into a movie, but again, there's no way I'd go see it. So much of the book's enjoyment comes from the atmosphere Straub seeds into your brain. I could never accept somebody else's interpretation since the words had such a defined impact on my imagination. Another good yarn told well.<br><br>

LOL I almost choked on this coke here Steve! <br><br>I haven't read Ghost Story, yet...but I do know that it wouldn't turn into some hokey chick-flick <br><br>/ducks for the coming macbabe assault for the "chick-flick" reference.<br><br>BTW, when my unit was flown to Saudi at the start of the gulf war, they showed us Ghost...wtf were they thinking?? <br><br><br>[color:red]Don't make me open this on you!</font color=red><br>
