To answer last week's meme, I would definitely say, without hesitation, that I would love to see author Kristen Britain's Green Rider series made into movies. I'm a huge fan of fantasy books and I just think the adventures in these books would translate into an exciting and engrossing film. The characters are rich and deep and the romantic tension between some of them is almost palpable. I would really love for more fantasy books to be made into movies...there's such a great escape element to fantasy. And isn't film more or less about escapism from the everyday?
My answer for this week's question was more difficult to decide on. I guess I'd have to go with Life of Pi by Yann Martel. It was a very well written book and a totally unique plot, but it might be a little boring to watch a boy stranded on a lifeboat with a tiger for two hours, I'm just sayin'! :) Plus, it would probably take some kick butt trainers to make sure the tiger wouldn't eat the entire film crew!
