I do read fiction sometimes!

Reading the novel for the first time. Not finished but I like this work.

Very much different than the screenplay, much better.

Books usually are better than the films based upon them.

I didn't know there was a book until BORadio did a show with the author, Mr. Singer.

FWIW

I agree Jim. I'm just coming out of a mini-Parallax obsession. (It happens.) I watched the film, re-read the novel, and re-watched the film. Although the film of course had a narrower focus, I think it holds its own quite nicely. The novel is fascinating. The film is Ice. Cold.

Great stunts too.

 

Chiming out,

Denise

Yup. Its good.

Might watch the DvD again after I finish the book.

Cold, oh yes to be sure just like the corporate motivated entities.

 

7 Days in May great film and great book. Serling screenplay.

Manchurian Candidate great book and movie.
