Re: 2 books, 10 movies, 6 albums
I'm wondering what all action scenes have translated that well from the page, for me. The high point would be the Comanche attack in Blood Meridian, but novels just generally don't do that stuff that well, so I didn't really care about Card's description of zero gravity fights which of course movies would do better. But I don't think I'm even going to bother to see the EG movie. We'll see.
SC's plot just turns into a kind of video game. The descriptions of capitalist neighborhoods like "CosaNostra pizza" and all the nascent-Internet VR stuff intrigued me way more than the plot. It's actually one of his weaker books though.
