The Sunday Salon - All Books Make Movies

Have you noticed all the books that has been being made into movies lately?  The Lorax, The Descendants, The Mysterious Island(journey 2), Princess of Mars (John Carter), The Hunger Games and so many more are being made.  I find it funny because I think the first time I see the book as a movie is in my head in it’s own magical movie. Now the only book I read being made a movie is The Hunger Games and I am eager to see the movie.   I saw the John Carter movie just Saturday and thought to be better then I thought.  

The John Carter movie is based on a series of books my Edgar Rice Burroughs, best know for creating Tarzan, the first called Princess of Mars.  It goes on for 11 books.  John Carter movie had many things that reminded me of Star Wars.

Next week will be the Hunger Games weekend!  Are you going to the movies to see it?  What else are you doing to celebrate?

I was curious to know if there was any one out there who had read the John Carter books and saw the movie?  How close is the movie to books?

I read a really good review of The Hunger Games today (in the context of it being a movie); I think I should read the book first. But I hadn't decided that I would read it until I read the review.

Now I'm pondering it....

I have noticed; its almost like the directors/writers in Hollywood don't have an original idea lately.
