Another Author That Doesn't Translate Well To Screen

Ray Bradbury.

I was thinking about him in the context of The Mist review. Movies based on his works tend to be gawdawful butcheries. The best version of his major work, Farenheit 451 was done by Truffaut, and I can't stand to watch it, it's so ugly.

No offense to Truffaut, but for me, the pleasure in reading Bradbury is the beautiful imagery he conjures.

So I think I can express a certain amount of hopeful anticipation in the knowledge that Mr. Darabont is going to leave the Stephen King farm to direct a new version of Farenheit 451.
