I would love to see the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, Victoria Laurie Ghouls series, Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series, and Carrie Vaughn Kitty Norville series.

Re: WHAT BOOKS OR SERIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MADE INTO A MOVIE?

I don't think there are any movies I've seen that have even rivaled the books they were modeled after. I usually end up disappointed in the movies and have to reread the book to fix it.

Just ran across the poster for the upcoming Clash of the Titans movie in 3D.... Any thoughts?

My husband is sure that this movie is going to be horrible and is already criticizing the previews.  He is a HUGE fan of the 1981 Clash of the Titans movie (I don't understand how), and thinks the new movie just might ruin it.  I, on the other hand, am looking forward to the new movie, being that I have been forced to watch the 1981 movie more than any other female in the US.  The 2010 one at least has better stunts, cool effects, and (pray to God) some nice eye candy.  If that criteria can be met, I won't even care about dialogue at this point.


 

I loved the original movie and I think your husband was right they butchered the story!!! Why change it and make Hades the bad guy when he wasn't even in the original movie?? Hera was the bad guy in the original movie and it made sense with Zeus being ...well Zeus. I was so disappointed in that movie.

I would love to see some of my favorite books made into movies. Several choices would be Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell Hamilton, Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison, amd Fever Series by MK Moning.

These would all be great ones.

What do you think?

I heard the Fever series by Moning might actually be made into a movie. Moning gets my vote for Fever and Highlander series made into a movie or two!! I've read the Fever series and have started the Highlander series. The Fae are all over the place!

 

 

                                                                  

 

                 


 

The Fever series would make a great movie it would very easily translate to the big screen, if done right of course.

Dude what have you got against Bubo? Always thought he was cute.



Bubo was a heck of a lot better than an angel-ish cheracter they put in the movie instead for crying out loud!!

I totally agree about the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I dont think it would be too difficult. However, a series on HBO or premium channel may be feasable since there are so many characters to spotlight.

Re: WHAT BOOKS OR SERIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MADE INTO A MOVIE?

I would love to see Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter Series. However, it would need ot be a series instead of a movie. The character's are larger than life and may be hard to portray. At least how I see them in my mind. Also, JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed Series, Christine Feehan's Dark Series or Wild Series and I also think Lori Foster has some great romance books that would work. Her SBC fighter series are wonderful and I think since MMA is gaining more ground in the sports world, that might actually be quite successful as a series. None would be a good movie, because you need more. Not just 2 hrs.

Re: WHAT BOOKS OR SERIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MADE INTO A MOVIE?

Really interesting topic...

 

I am torn because everyone knows the movies rarely do the book justice.  At the same time I am not great at imagining how things look, so I loved the Harry Potter movies because I get to see it come to life so to speak, and it added something for me.

 

I know they are making Melissa Marr's book into a movie... I just love her faery books so I hope they don't screw it up too bad!  I am worried Seth will be all emo and whiny and ruin the books for me! lol

 

I have to agree on the Fever series but I vote TV show.  It would be like a new Angel/Buffy :smileywink:

I'm hoping to see The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The series plays perfectlly as a movie in my head.

Re: WHAT BOOKS OR SERIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MADE INTO A MOVIE?

I would absolutely love to see the Vampire Academy series made into movies.  I think they would be wonderful due to all the adventure and twists that each book has.  Each one also possesses its own love story of sorts.  I think this series of vampire books could produce better movies than the Twilight Saga movies.  I loved the series and anyone interested should definitely give them a chance. 

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy Series #1) 

 

Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy Series #6) 

 

Blood Promise (Vampire Academy Series #4)  

Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy Series #5)  

Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy Series #3)  

Frostbite (Vampire Academy Series #2)
