Great novels with justifying films

My friend Lisa and I always get onto the topic of novels and movies, and together we have agreed that there have been some novels which have, more then successfully, been turned into movies, some of those movies almost outshine the novel from where the inspiration was drawn from. Undoubtedly there are many films based upon novels that should never have been created in the first place but there truly are some greats, in my opinion these are a few of the best novel based films I have seen:
Clockwork Orange The Godfather Lolita Interview with the Vampire

I read this and laughed

Katie Homes And Tom Cruise Baby Name Fuck Up
Guess what Tom Cruise and Katie Homes have went and done? (It has something to do with naming their baby) Their choice to name their spawn Suri has confused translators because there is no record of the name meaning princess in Hebrew. It officially can mean 2 things: Go away or some one from Syria. Who thinks Tom and Katie were in Syria when they met a bunch of people telling them to go away? Tom probably took that as a compliment since he still doesnt understand we dont like him, and stole the name (just like he stole Katie). Want to hear what an actual Hebrew expert (Jonathan Went) said? I think its fair to say they have made a mistake here. There are variations of the way the Hebrew name for princess is spelled but I have never seen it this way. Suri also means pointy nose in some Indian dialects and pickpocket in Japanese. Congratulations! Your kid is now going to get more grief than Apple or Moses!

That was just to funny not to be shared =P

Why do old habits die hard?

Ladies and gents I want to know why it is that after being rejected by someone who is, without a doubt, a not so nice human being we turn to our ex's? We turn to them in hope that they will not reject us and reassure us, we abandon hope of finding someone who is better suited for us and turn to the people we have already discarded in relationships? Is it because there is security and stability and we know what to expect? Is it that because there are still lingering embers after the flame has died down? Instead of being hopeful and not letting one loser get us down we let it affect us, at least once in our life time, thus turning to people whom we believe will not reject us despite the history you have had with this person, it does not matter that if at the end of your previous relationships you loathed the person so long as they did not reject you we consider this reasoning. When will we learn that there are better and great things out there and we don't have to continue with our old habits and just let them die instead of dying hard?

Jesus vs Easter Bunny

Many people believe nowadays that Easter has no longer about the death of Jesus and it has become another comercialised holiday and an extra long weekend, I'm on the fence on this one. I agree that over the years Easter (like Christmas) has become less about religion and Jesus and more about chocolate and a long weekend however if you watch the news and the Festivities that are held the spirit of Easter still remains. For me Easter has become not about Jesus or about a long weekend, for me it is about family, spending time with loved ones which I rarely get to see and just enjoying my family and I think it has become this way for more people. No matter whether it is about the religious aspect or Friday off have a happy and safe Easter.

American Psycho

After reading Bret Easton Ellis’s ‘American Psycho’ I got to thinking about how many people in the world exist and live like, Ellis’s protagonist, Patrick Bateman. People who lead seemingly ‘normal’ lives and yet once away from the publics view perform acts in which are considered, by society, to be heinous, people like doctors whom molest, teachers who are paedophiles, politicians that make exceptionally dirty dealings in order to gain power. Society looks down upon these people more so then others because they are supposed to be ‘educated’ and know the difference between what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour. The question is how many people like Patrick Bateman exist and move amongst society without being noticed and caught, the thought alone scares me, people need to think about it realistically, how many rapes and sexual assaults go unnoticed because people are too afraid to speak up against offenders whom are seemingly ‘regular’ and ‘respectable’ citizens? It’s an unnerving thought but one we must think about, what happens to all those people that disappear without a trace, do they face horrible accidents that could not be avoided or do they become victims of (all the people like) Patrick Bateman’s seduction never to be seen again?
