This means war....

Okay, first go and read my friend andrewducker's post on the new Hollywood take on the greatest book ever The Three Musketeers.

Watched it? Okay.

All right, that's it, Hollywood, I'm taking away your X-Box. And your Wii. And your trousers. You only get them back when you learn to Respect The Bloody Books. You're turning Miss Marple into an American sex-pot, too, I gather. You ruined The Little White Horse with sparkly sentiment and cloying faux Englishness. You don't get to play in the European literary sand box any more.

Have you seen what they're doing to Miss Marple? *shudder*

I can't say that I'm particularly protective of Christie (though there are enough US female detectives they can mess about with if they want to), but I am torn about The Eagle (not, apparently, 'of the Ninth' which is in some ways a blessing and distancing from the original book). Should go and see it before criticising, but, OTOH, do I want to encourage them?
