Instead we get brain dead drivel like Twilight and 50 shades of who gives a fuck.

    And a lot of the time that they do decide to turn a good book into a movie they make a mess of it (pretty much every Stephen King movie ever made)

    So if you were head of a big movie production company and had any say, who's writings would you like to give the silk screen treatment?

    I know top of my list would be every book Terry Pratchett ever wrote
    Have you not seen the Hogfather then?

    Hyperion (Dan Simmons), but looks like that is finally happening in the form of a mini-series.

    Also would like to see The Magician (Raymond Feist) ,...actually ANY thing from Raymond Feist .... Riftwar Cycle / Betrayal at Krondor

    I dunno, some of King's movies (like Misery, Kathy Bates was epic) don't turn out absolute shite
