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.

This kind of thing is partly the result of Hollywood's insistence on remaking old material rather than actively seeking for new ideas. Or I should say, Hollywood bankers -- it's apparently much easier to get funding for a picture or TV series if the bankers recognize the name of the project.

That does seem to be very true, sadly. Sometimes -- very rarely -- it can work, but mostly we just get films that are limper and limper.
