What are some good books you'd like to see made into movies? I know for me at least, I have an instinctual fear when it comes to movie adaptations. Mostly because what I picture in my head tends to be so much different and suited to my own tastes (with a few exceptions). Plus I just hate to see things compressed to fit an alloted time when I know a story was originally much more expansive. The phrase "the book was better" isn't said so often for nothing.
In any case though, what would you like to see made?... Just assume they'll do a good job.
I'd like to see:
Dr. R. Bakker's 'Raptor Red.' A book set 120 million years ago through the eyes of Utahraptor. It's actually much better than it sounds.
Tolkien's 'The Hobbit'
Do I honestly need a reason? It shouldn't be done like the LOTR movies though. It was a childrens book and should be done as a childrens movie.
