    So this is what Hollywood perceives as the "Sci-Fi/Horror" market?

    I, for one, am not going to pre-dispose myself to hate these films until I have seen them. They could turn out allright. I especially think Last Voyage of the Demeter could be pretty good, as long as it isn't candied up to have the stereotypical "Good will always triumph" ending, and left with a bleak one like the novel.

    Rather than "The Demolished Man", I'd rather see an adaption of "The Stars My Destination". That could kick ass.

    "Dead of Night" COULD be good. But, Rex is right...subtlety is key. I love that you TM'd it, Rex...[​IMG]

    PK Dick admitted to getting a lot of inspiration from Bester's book. Of course, that doesn't mean we need to see a movie version after we've already seen "Minority Report". They're FAR too similar.

    The rest of these sound pretty bad. Particularly "Red". It's disappointing to see what's happening...but, then again, we also get the Matrix, Underworld (hopefully good), Blade, From Hell, Hellboy, and others that have been or should be good.

    Send me your email, Rex...I'll send you something you may enjoy...

    Agreed. I'd give eight bucks to see that even on the chance that it was decently made. When I read it, the book seemed perfect for movie adaptation since it's got tons of plot (if anything too much plot for one novel) plenty of violence and some sick, twisted more-or-less humor. Of course we'd probably get Vin Diesel as Gully Foyle so maybe we should be careful what we wish for...
