Thanks Norg,

I haven't seen the movie yet, but will look for the book. The clips that I've seen for the movie make it look like a story custom-made for Viggo Mortensen to star in.

Speaking of books that became great movies, my Mom sent me a copy of "Dances With Wolves" four years before Kevin Costner did such a great job with the movie. That was a long, frustrating wait for a movie that more than did justice to a great book!

It will show up on DishNetwork in a few months. If it's really good, I will buy the Blu-Ray DVD when it becomes available. Viggo Mortensen is one of my favorite actors, and this type of near-future disaster/adeventure/survival story is one of my favorite genres.

Mortensen has made a couple of really good movies with his friend/fellow actor Ed Harris- here's a couple of highly recommended recent movies:
"Appaloosa"- a great Western
"A History of Violence"- wonderful crime story.

See what I mean, EXWRX? In this particular forum, you can't help but blend the boundaries of the subject matters under discussion. I don't feel that it is necessary to start a "Movies (only)" thread, but you can if you want.

Heck no! I just wanted for new people in the forum not to have to look for their book reccomendations in a thread titled Caprica. Thread drift happens. Books and movies about the book totally belong together!

Yeah, "Dances With Wolves" doesn't mesh very well with "Caprica".

GREAT! People who post about their wonderful new intake system on the "Headers and Exhaust" thread should be subject to SEVERE verbal excoriation, and forcible movement of their ill-chosen new thread to the appropriate forum, etc. But as a forum moderator, I won't jump on anybody who mixes up movies/books/TV series in the Entertainment forum.

See? All of my fancy verbiage comes from a READER. You learn to use the English language as the tool that it is by reading. Last comment aimed at the "TOOLs" of the world, not EXWRX.
