    The Princess Bride – which is a movie based on a great book purporting to be a book based on another terrible book.

    Has to be Misery. Because Kathy Bates. Period. Love it & can’t help but watch when I see it on tv. Doesn’t matter what I’ve seen Kathy Bates in since, for a second I always think of Annie.

    If Disney movies based on books don’t count, then it has to be The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. I didn’t realize it was a book until I was in High School. The movie adaptation is remarkably on-point. I can think of only one small scene that was omitted, and the movie does a great job of keeping the feel of the book. One of the absolute best movie adaptations ever!

    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a
    lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.
