A bit of a backlog of a collection, attributions for which I can’t remember, sorry – though a pretty good bet would be the sidebar, but.
- Billy Mernit makes a good case for bad screenwriting.
- There are such things as happy endings for screenwriters in Hollywood – just ask Robert Mark Kamen.
- Salman Rushdie writes about adaptation.
- Oh, is nothing sacred, Mr Rogers?
And speaking of the Minutemen, after all my build–up, The Goddess and I went to see Watchmen a week or so ago. She enjoyed it; I hankered for some interpretation rather than faithful replication. Thanks to Mr Slevin I’ve read people who can say what I’m thinking much better than I could here, here and here. (And no one’s mentioned it’s been two whole decades since Tim Burton gave us Michael Keaton as Batman – didn’t that kickstart the mainstreaming of comic-book adaptations?)
