A Shot in the Dark.
Favorite Movie based on a novel/play that was completely changed to fit the characters / concept of the movie (I am not talking about poor adaptions, but about adaptations for a different medium
Apocalypse now or Pirates of the Carribean 4
The novel was different. Spielberg focused more on the shark to make a good movie.
I am not sure if this is what was meant by the question, so by all means someone else answer too.
But to add another question to the mix:
Favorite Robert Shaw role that was not Quint?
Next 5 posters. How old were you when you saw your first movie at a theater (that you can remember), and what was it.
Mine was Sleeping Beauty and I was 5 or 6. Back then, Disney would re-release their movies every 10 years or so.

You ought to be flagged for that comment. How could you not know Jaws was written by Peter Benchly.
As an interesting aside: Peter was stuck for a name for the book, so he asked his father for help. His father suggested "Something's Noshing On My Leg".

I'm #3: Charlotte's Web. I was 4. It was at a small town movie theatre that played whatever the hell they wanted to. Every year they played Charlottes Web for a week or two. I miss that place.
I was 2. Bambi. Such a beautiful story. I REALLY identified with the little deer. I felt I WAS Bambi. And my parents had asked the people at the cinema to make sure there was NOTHING that would scare a child in it, which they confirmed there wasn't.
Then a hunter shot Bambi's mother.
And when he talked to his dad about it, his dad told him "sorry, can't deal with you now, go away".
Yeah. Torture of children.
Pfft. Have you ever seen Old Yeller?
Also, the strongest man is he who stands most alone!
Anyway, I say that's five answers.
Ask your question again, Sisyl.
I mean, we've got, say three versions of the Pygmalion story (My Fair Lady, Annie Hall, Mannequin) but they don't have the same scenes.
On the other hand, we've got The Battleship Potemkin, The Untouchables and Naked Gun something or other which all have the same scene but not the same plot.
I guess my answer would be any three randomly chosen Police Academy films.
Favorite other movie with Steve Guttenberg?
Favourite with more than one person directing the first unit?
(Was gonna ask for a movie with two directors, but strictly speaking that would include almost all movies with more than one shooting unit - for example, George Lucas directed a small part of the first Godfather movie, and the Lord of the Ring movies seems to have had between 3 and 6 different directors - so go with one where two people share the main directing credit).
If Star Wars seven really does pick up right where Jedi ends predict the casting of luke, leia, han, lando, c3po
I think it will be a nightmare cast like, Luke shia laboof, leia ann hathaway, han johnny depp, lando samuel l jackson, and 3cpo russel brand, all directed by joss whedon...../shivers
To answer Pan's question:
I could see them using the original actors if for only cameo purposes, and take up the story about 30 years later with the twins of Leia and Han.
If Leia and Han had a boy and girl twins (Jaina and Jacen), who today would best be cast in their rolls?
Actually, that was my question to begin with. No one other than I answered concerning Jacen Solo.
And to answer Pan, Jaina and Jacen Solo are from various novels in the Expanded Star Wars Universe. Some of which would be great for a Star Wars VII.
But I will do another question for the heck of it:
Favorite actress that played Guinevere in the movies? Extra credit: for TV?
Funny - I always thought of Easy Rider as 'serious'...1)Live and Let Die
3) You know my Name
worst for me is the Madonna atrocity...even if you like Madonna - that is not a Bond song!
I let the question stand for the next three posters!
