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.

Even more amusing, the name of the hero of The Ipcress File et seq "... is not Harry and never has been." (I think the quote comes from Funeral in Berlin but it's a long time since I read them. However, this factoid amused me at the time.
