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.

they mess up everything. im still grumpy about alice in wonderland, tim burton! i used to like you, and now i don't so much :(
i don't mind fanfiction type things, as long as it's right. alice, on sci fi, was really good, because it kept to a lot of alicve in wonderland story, in a new way, and had a lot of the little details from the books popping up. but tim burton's version didn't do that. and so many otyher versions of other books don't have anything to do with the book other than character names. not just classical greats, but all sorts.
if it's a book worth making into a film, do it right, for heaven's sake! it's a popular book for a reason!
