Dorothy Fontana, story editor for Star Trek, once told me that screenwriters envy prose writers for that. I can write 3 words: "The world ended." To do that on screen costs millions of dollars.

@IMAOZI: SF and fantasy readers are also welcome at the Science Fiction/Fantasy Atheists group.

Hehe, well your imagination doesn't have a budget! If money was no object, I bet movies would be a ton better. I know a lot of movies spend millions of dollars on production, but if they could spend more, I'm sure they would. And these days, a million bucks doesn't go far.

I usually read Sci-Fi but I did read The DaVinci Code and saw the movie. I was disappointed with the movie though. My imagination is always better that the directors.

Ewww, sorry there, IMAOZI, but I tried Dan Brown and didn't care for his writing style at all. Too academic, I thought. I didn't like the movie, The DaVinci Code either.

I am reading "Angels & Demons"

Awww....shucks!

@Travis: TSD sounds interesting, but is it too business/economics based -- or is it for the layperson.

@Sydni: I've been meaning to write to you about it since you're the one who recommended it. I am enjoying it, though I do miss bits and pieces of it since I'm listening to it at work for the most part. His writing style is not real dynamic, and the man who reads it does just an okay job, but the info is what is really interesting. It is very informative, and I like how he dispells the myth that primitive cultures lived in harmony and balance with the world around them. Now we know they exploited their resources just as much as we do today. He is very impressive, and the lessons are very harrowing. How can one man know so much? Have you seen the GGS DVD yet?

I'm currently reading The Shock Doctrine (The Rise of Disaster Capitalism) By: Naomi Klein. This book is intense.

@Mack: I really like listening to books on tape, because I can do it at work. I'm listening to Jared Diamond's Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed right now.
