Book to Film
Saw a tweet the other day from “Focus Features” about #NationalBookLoversDay with the question – “What is your favorite book to film adaption?” My immediate response was, LOTR, Hobbit, Godfather and The Princess Bride.
But of course I immediately realized that can’t be all. So the search begins.

The Nothing by Hanif Kureishi
I heard the interview for the 2nd time, I think, earlier this morning. The first time was yesterday. But yesterday I didn’t get far enough to listen to the actual interview. Come to think about it, it might have been a preview about the interview that I did listen to this morning that they were talking about yesterday.
In any case, during the interview I learned a bit more about the author, Hanif Kureishi. He also wrote (or wrote the screenplay) “My Beautiful Laundrette”, which of course now is on my wishlist.
Blade Runner 2049
Sep 7th, ’17 Saturday – Watched the 10:50pm show at the Bullock Museum IMAX Theatre. But very unlike me I actually got there a few minutes after the movie had already started 😦 <rant>Mostly because of traffic that I had NOT planned for. It was game night AND ACL</rant>. But also because I had waited a few minutes past the very last minute to leave and forgot my head phones that I had to go back to get.
Anyway, other than getting there late and missing the previews and missing the beginning of the movie (including the credits) it was really good. I am so glad that I had decided to watch it at this theater too. The sound system really made a difference to the experience.
Our relationships are interesting. They are continually evolving. They have to – as we ourselves are continuously evolving. Every day, every moment we experience life and those experiences, ever so slightly and slowly, enriches our perspectives.
Apr 4th, ’28 – Finished it finally. Now that I have finished this I really want to find out which of his work is considered his best work. I have heard so many people say that this is not his best work that I am really curious to find out what people think is his best work.
Having just finished this I find it hard to believe that he has written something else that I will find better. Which is a reflection more on me and how I have related to this at this time in my life than anything else.
Mar 31st, ’18 – It’s taking me quite a long time to finish this but that is not because I am not enjoying it. If anything I am enjoying it a bit too much. But every little section I read, I get to a point that is a bit too interesting and I have to put it down to think about the section. But am hoping to finish it soon.
