Sci-Fi and Fantasy Movie Suggestions

Sci-Fi and Fantasy Movie Suggestions

The other day I came across this list I’d made over 10 years ago of books I’ve read that I think would make good and/or profitable movies. I think I’ve changed my mind about some of them in the last decade. For now I’ll list them.

  • A Matter for Men

  • Darker Than You Think

  • Death Angel’s Shadow

  • Faerie Tale

  • Legacy of Heorot

  • Lord Valentine’s Castle

  • Seventh Sun

  • Songmaster

  • The Anubis Gates

  • The Dark is Rising

  • The Dragonriders of Pern

  • The Forgotten Beasts of Eld

  • The Hunters’ Haunt

  • The Many-Colored Land

  • The Riddlemaster of Hed

  • The Stress of Her Regard

  • The White Hart

Also on my list were the following which have already been made, are in the process of being made, or could use a remake.

  • The Chronicles of Narnia

  • The Dark is Rising

  • Watership Down

Later I’ll revisit the list and explain why I picked these particular stories.

Wait, isn't the Many-Colored Land the book about the tunnel to Earth's past? If that's the one I'm thinking of, hell yeah. I'd love for that to be made into a movie. Fah Shure. Most of the others I'm either not familiar with or never read. Which one of the 3 can use a remake luv?

Yes, it is!!! I think it would make a very funny movie. There were so many weird characters in that book.

Watership Down was made into an animated movie in the late 70's, but they could make a good movie with CGI bunnies now.

Michelle, I'm reading Snow Crash now, by Neal Stephenson. So far, it seems like an AWESOME movie. Any thoughts?
