Movie Review - Rarely are movies based on books as enriching and entertaining as the books, themselves. Occasionally, though, they are even better. In my not-to-be-trusted opinion, "Hunt For Red October," "Dolores Claiborne," "Brokeback Mountain," "Wonder Boys" and "The Firm" are examples of movies which outshone their estimable literary counterparts.
And sometimes the movies, or mini-series, and the books on which they were based, seem perfectly aligned, each as good as the other. This sublime experience typically requires that the screenwriter demonstrate an absolute reverence for the original material. To me, "The Cider House Rules," "Lonesome Dove" and "Pillars of the Earth," are perfect examples of great books that were transformed into equally great movies...

Warren Peece - My wife got me Ray LaMontagne's "God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise." I got her "Farmer's Daughter," Crystal Bowersox's brilliant debut CD. Of the two, I like the Bowersox album best. As you may have guessed, I actually got "Farmer's Daughter" for myself, but Poopsy thinks it's for her.
