I was reading just now how Hollywood is looking at doing a remake of "The Neverending Story" one of my favorites from when I was a kid. Some further reading led to discussion of the book by the same name, which many claim the movie absolutely butchered. Focus: What book to movie adaptation have you both read and seen and believe Hollywood screwed it all up ? Alt Focus: What book to movie adaptation have you both read and seen and believe Hollywood stayed true to the book ? I'll start with the alternative focus. "Lonesome Dove" is a phenomonal book, I've read it a couple times so far, and I think the made for TV movie did a pretty good job telling the story, obviously fake water snakes aside. I'll chime in with more later.
