So now other members want to see my pants - is there going to be a new function for this - 'show pants'

I'd start a most attractive famous author but no-one knows what they look like. That's a good one - what do famous authors look like. Okay off to start on this one.

Hitchhikers they never seemed to get right but then it isn't traditional hollywood fare and they can't seem to cope with some off the wall stuff.

Plus what happened to that actress who was Hurt's love interest? She was hot



She was hot! About time we got on to hot women. Already maybe not so hot in the photo from the film below but they all had to wear boiler suits. Thank you for raising this topic



I think Tara Fitzgerald playing the female lead in Anglo Saxon Attitudes was one of the most attractive interpretations of a female book character

I did this book by Angus Wilson for A level

One of my favourite 'interpretations of a female book character' was Alex Kingston as Moll Flanders.

What was this topic about again?

I'll get the thread back on track then by pointing out one of the most obviously films of books then. (Nothing to do with fancying the male characters in it either. Oh no...)

Oh, and another one which I thought was way better as a film than the book was.

American Psycho was a great film. I'm still trying to figure out whether he actually did anything. I'm not sure many psychos dissect Huey Lewis and the News while dressing up in a mac to avoid blood getting everywhere

I haven't seen or read American Psycho or The Shawshank Redemption, and haven't read The Shining, but thanks for all the great suggestions...

Lolita (Kubrick version) is a very good book-based film, I think.

Lucky you! You have a lot to look forward to. If I had to do it again I'd start with the Shawshank Redemption and don't watch The Shining before you read the book. Enjoy
