[01] What book has been made into a great movie (or tv series, etc)?
LA Confidential, Fight Club, The Beach, The Walking Dead. Batman. Requiem For A Dream. American Psycho. The Lord Of the Rings. Rum Punch (Jackie Brown).

[02] What book has not translated well into other media?
"The Black Dahlia," although I've heard that there is a version of the movie that closely follows the book. "Jurassic Park: Lost World" was atrocious by comparison. "Sphere" was also made quite shitty.

[03] What novel would you like to see as a film?
"My Dark Places" by James Elroy. It was listed several years ago on IMDB, and had David Duchovney in a lead role, but the idea was ultimately shelved. I'd love to see "Y: The Last Man" given 60 episodes over a 5 year period on a channel that could handle it properly (HBO or Showtime).

[04] What literary character do you enjoy seeing envisioned on the big screen?
"Blade" started out good. "Doctor Octavious" from Spider-Man2 was made very well. Christian Bale's Batman & Bateman have both been excellent.

[05] Are you likely to read a book before or after seeing the film upon which it is based?
Both. If I really liked the movie then I'll likely get the book. Sometimes I'll read the book before seeing the movie, but lately that has just depressed me when I see how Hollywood can't do anything right.
