I really hope they start adapting some of MY childhood movies. I’m not sure if Bunnicula would work on screen, but I’d definitely see it.

An anime version of “Ghost Paddle” wouldn’t be too bad. :-)

Oh man! I did not know that existed. And a steal at only 43 dollars!

The only title I recognised was the one you didn’t read. ‘Shakespeare’s Planet’ was one of Simak’s weaker novels, though. It would be better if Hollywood went with ‘Enchanted Pilgrimage’ or ‘Where Evil Dwells’ or even ‘Mastodonia’. Or if short stories are under consideration, the classic ‘The Big Front Yard’, which is pretty much the original version of ‘Mastodonia’.
As an American, I never read any books in French. I assume that’s a Canadian thing. (Do all Canadians have to read French books in school, or is it just in Quebec or other Francophone places?)
I guess the best book I read in school was ‘Huckleberry Finn’. That’s already been made into a movie, dozens of times. I’m still waiting for them to do it right.

Actually, Eagle of the Ninth is a classic and still pretty famous (at least it still is here in the UK where Sutcliffe lived and worked); plus I know some of the people working on it, and it’s gonna be brilliant.

But sad that the Narnia abomination hasn’t died off yet. Ya win some…

@Mary – I’m not sure how it works in other provinces, but in New Brunswick your parents can opt to put your in a full French immersion program (grades 4-10), and I had to read a lot of French language books and watch a lot of movies. I can’t remember any of their titles though.

Oh, and there are many Francophone school options as well in NB.

I can’t wait for the movie version of Lizard Music.
