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.

I haven't seen Eagle yet,1 but am desperately hooping it doesn't spoil one of my favourite books. I'm really sorry about Three Musketeers, Kari. I know it's your book. Perhaps they should just change the title and then they wouldn't even need to pretend to have read the book.

The film looks like it might be good fun if you don't think of the origins, but I doubt I'll see it at the cinema for one reason alone - 3D.

I suppose you hated the Dick Lester ones, too. I just saw the first one again on TV and must admit I enjoyed it immensely - but again, not thinking of the origins.

The best you can do is think of it as a movie _inspired by_ rather than _of_ the Three Musketeers.

And, please, if you're going to take away anything from Hollywood, take away their bloody 3D cameras.
