I finally finished "Moving Mars". I have to say I was dissapointed. The story just didn't flow very well.
Had about as much speed as a glacier.
I took breaks from it to read John McCain's new book, "Why Courage Matters". Great book and wonderful stories.
I also read the new book, "The Bad Guys Won". That book is about the 1986 NY Mets. Who they were and how a group of misfits came together as a team and won the World Series. A great book!
Let's Go Mets
I'm reading "A Scanner Darkly" by Philip K Dick. A great Sci-fi writer with a twist to his writings. But it takes a filmaker with an appreciated taste of PKD's writings to make a film work.
A few of his stories were transfered to the big screen. Either whole or used as "inspiration":
Blade Runner was based on PKD's novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"
Total Recall was inspired by the short story, "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale"
A couple others include:
Minority Report and Paycheck which came out only recently.
The reason why I'm posting the film info is that "A Scanner Darkly" will be making a showing in the theaters sometime next year.
Enjoy and don't forget the popcorn!
