    Default Books that should be made into movies

    Well what do you think?




    My most obvious one that pops up is "The Hobbit" by tolkien. The trilogy was awesome, the Hobbitt could be the greatest movie ever made if done right.

    I also think that Michael Chichton's "Next" would make for a sick movie.
    To each his own. To me... Well I own his each.

    I have yet to see a movie that was near as good as the book so Im not sure I want to see any put on film.

    I also thought they had plans to make hobbit into a movie? Perhaps Im thinking of something else *shrugs*.

    Have you read the books? Didn't think so. They are great books. But don't insult a book just because you don't like that genre or the game.

    Including the part where Jesus escapes his captors and kills an entire roman legion with a sharpened crucifix?

    Song of Ice and Fire series. (Think HBO is doing that one)

    and

    The Malazan Book of the Fallen.


    The two best fantasy series ever written.

    the warcraft books were all right, not sure about the WoW ones though. are you talking about the sunwell trilogy? im pretty sure thats just vanilla warcraft, and i agree that they would make kickass movies.

    you read the starcraft books yet? im thinking about picking them up since i just played through the campaigns again

    I've not read the starcraft books yet.

    And i mean the whole series of warcraft books, like the sunder trilogy, day of the dragon trilogy, cycle of hatred, etc. And the diablo books (not wow).

    I think diablo would probably make better movie, solely because it's a bit more mature based, but those wow books could probably be made pretty fuckin sweet.
