2) Interesting article here about successful movie adaptations of "unadaptable" books. It was surprising how many of the movies I've seen, including some pretty good ones (and one masterpiece).
3) Laura Stanfill came up with a great idea for a post: Line of the Week.
4) One thing the Underworld and Resident Evil movies have in common which I didn't mention in my earlier post was that both are featured here: "Significant Others Directing One Another." I like the fact that so many of the couples apparently found working together to be a good experience. I didn't like the fact that it was always the man directing the woman. I thought maybe they'd overlooked Ida Lupino and Howard Duff. She directed a lot of movies, and they worked together quite often but (as far as I could determine from imdb.com) always as actors, not with her directing him.
