    Well, I voted for you this time. You’re onto a winner with Shawshank. What a classic. James way up at the top of the comments section seems like a nice guy, but he’s dead wrong about “The Shawshank Redemption” — clearly the greatest film ever made either the word Shawshank or Redemption in the title.

  2. Booooooooo! Shawshank is rubbish! Vote One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest instead

  3. Grr. I tried to respond on Darren’s blog and once again I wound up having to reboot my iPad. I wonder what it is about his blog? And to add insult to injury, I couldn’t make out your piece because for some reason it’s in teensy weensy print. I’m a tad cranky right now.😡 I do like your selection though Ems. I thought this was one of the best adaptations. Especially when you think it’s actually a short story. Have you watched Stand By Me? That’s one of my favs also.

    How about “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part II” from the novel “The Godfather” by Mario Puzo! Two outstanding movie achievements!
    “The Great Escape” from the book “The Great Escape” by Paul Brickhill……….another classic film adaptation!

      Excellent choices!!! Thanks Ron 🙂 I think any movie that has surpassed the popularity of its original book is a very good contender.

      You should join in the with the next Opinion Wars!!! The next two rounds are – Best Anime and Worst Sequel 🙂

    From the selection, I voted for ‘Goodfellas.’ I would have put ‘Schindler’s List’ in there too, as it was a pretty good adaptation of the book, ‘Schindler’s Ark.’
    Best wishes, Pete.
