John Marco - The Eyes of God

I just finished the first section of it, and its decent so far. He is an excellent writer it's just what he writes was frustrating at some points.

I bought a Buffy book (Spike & Dru: Pretty Maids All in a Row) and a cheap fantasy novel (Wayfarer Redemption) at Barnes and Noble in Cape Cod, although I haven't started either yet because I'm reading Minion by L.A. Banks again.

I don't see how LADY IN THE WATER - even if it's a bomb - would destroy his career as a director.
Inquiring mind would like to know more!

Probably has something more or less to do with who he casts as the leads in his films and what exactly he should or shouldn't take from the script to the screen. That is, if Lady bombs. Hollywood execs don't like rebellious, mouthy directors who don't play by the rules, and coupled with a probable disappointing box office take, don't give them much leeway in the future.

I'm quite curious to read it. From the reviews I read, it makes the reader pity and revile him at the same time, both for his demanding ego and how deeply personal this project was/is to him.

Age of Reptiles: Tribal Warfare (Trade Paperback) by Ricardo Delgado


Age of Reptiles: The Hunt (Trade Paperback) by Ricardo Delgado

2 out of print graphic novels for roughly 14 bucks total, when online they would've cost about 20 a piece, when you can get them, add to the fact that they are very kickass books (I'd love to see these on film much more than a Jurassic Park 4) and I got a good deal today.

I'm very curious about the book though (hopefully it's better than CELL). Please tell me how it is when you finish it.

Lisey's Story is getting the best reviews of his carrer. New York Times called it stunning. Theyve never said that about an SK book.

That sounds fabulous. I guess I'm going to have to pick it up and read it when I have the time. Never expected that though...

Have fun with it. It's engrossing, but it's even more of a headtrip than the movie. Still trying to cope with Borden's pschizophrenic writing

Good luck on Pynchon Lazy Boy. Without a doubt one of the most incoherent authors ever.

Ive been buying a lot of old horror books from two writers that were reccommended to me off of amazin. Charles L Grant and Ramsey Campbell.

Of course I can only read the Kubrick chapter at the moment, as I'm sure endings are ruined every other sentence (which is the only way it can be). Until recently I wasn't aware that Arthur Penn had an auteurist following. I assumed he made his landmark, a few other good movies, then burned out.
