Everyone likes books right? So which one do you think would be an interesting movie?

For me I think the Artemis Fowl books would do great as a movie.

The Bartimaeus Trilogy would be a great movie series. Killersup loved the book series so much, then they ****ed up the ending so bad that Killersup screamed in rage in the middle of math class...

A lot of them. The problem is, movies usually screw the story over. They change it, cut it apart, and have dumb special effects and poor acting. I wouldn't wish any book I liked the horrible fate of becoming a dumb movie. Just look at what happened to Eragon, The Golden Compass, The Hunger Games, etc.

Now, if they were to become -good- movies that didn't leave out parts of the story and had good acting/special effects, that's a whole other thing.

The world needs another big budget sci-fi war movie like Starship Troopers. Two books that would be perfect for that are The Forever War ( by Joe Haldeman) and Old Man's War (by John Scalzi).

YES! Only problem is...they should hire a real actor to play Artemis and not some random kid that could decipher the elf writing in the beginning of book 1 like they promised..

Also..Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I know they made a tv show out of it..and I plan on watching it

Kid Actor?

There are plenty of Chinese dramas of it. And movies based on tiny slivers of that period; but you can't expect even a 3 hour epic to include everything. Try Red Cliff.

The Golden Compass,

That one turned out well, they just had too many star actors.

Anyway, if they went to a good director, I would like to see The Chronicles of Darkness, Walking Chaos, and maybe some of Artemis Fowl.
