Episode 6: Let’s Go to the Movies

Part 1: the movie briefcase

Patton Oswalt‘s book: Silver Screen Fiend: Learning About Life From an Addiction to Film

The Godfather (1972) …also from a novel, naturally

Movies from my childhood in episode:
Star Wars (1977)
The Rescuers (1977) …also from a novel
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Pete’s Dragon (1977)
Superman II (1980)
Herbie marathon: The Love Bug (1968), Herbie Rides Again (1974), Herbie Goes Bananas (1980)

Part 2: found in translation

My books to movie list from this episode, in order:
Tie for 1. The Exorcist, The Silence of the Lambs, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
4. The Dead Zone
5. Harriet the Spy
6. Frankenstein
7. Little Women
8. Hamlet
9. Interview with the Vampire
10. Dracula
special mention. Bridge to Terabithia

…and their best adaption to film, in my opinion (if given a choice):

 

…and don’t forget Scream (your girl’s been making it rain popcorn since 1996) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984 original) (bound in a nutshell and made a king of infinite space)
