  1. I read a clockwork orange i think the movie is very faithfull to the book and burgess actually said he liked the movie but he doesn't consider a clockwork orange to be his best book (at the time he wrote a lot of books just because he was in need ) and he was really sad that his other books were not adapted and that he will always be remembered as the guy who wrote the novel that the inspired the movie.

  2. Dear God Tom Hanks sucked in "Forest Gump" awful movie and awful performance. Shelly Duvall was horribly miscast in The Shining, funny how you describe the character played by Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" as a "socialite" she was a call girl, LOL (and the George Peppard character a kept man) Capote was wrong about Marilyn playing the part–it would have been way too obvious.
