7 Film Adaptations The Author Hated (For Ridiculous Reasons)

7 Movie Adaptations Authors Hated

Although books are a frequent source of inspiration for filmmakers, Hollywood doesn’t always see eye-to-eye with the authors of those books, because books are for nerds, so who cares what they think. Understandably, this often doesn’t sit well with the writers. But it doesn’t mean the author is always right — in fact, some of our favorite movies are books that Hollywood “ruined” in the eyes of their authors. Read More On Cracked…

The Director Of “The Lego Movie” Is Now Going To Be Making A “Minecraft” Movie

Welp, I know some kids who are going to be extremely happy: Indie game Minecraft is becoming a movie! Woooo! I’ve tried hard not to get too far into Minecraft because it would suck up my life the way that real-life Legos, Playmobil, Lincoln Logs, playing dress-up, and Sim City did when I was a kid and I am way too busy with Zelda right now to add another reason to my life to stare at a screen all day, but it is a damn cool game.

10 Marriage Thrillers For “Gone Girl” Fans

10 Marriage Thrillers For "Gone Girl" Fans

“I suppose these questions stormcloud over every marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do?

This seemingly innocuous quote from “Gone Girl” takes on a much more chilling undertone once you’ve read the book or, now, seen the movie. In fact, throngs of movie theater goers took to Twitter this week to voice their fear of marriage after seeing the film, and Jezebel even went so far as to say that “Gone Girl’s biggest villain is marriage itself.” There is something so fascinating about a novel that has you questioning how well you really know the person you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with and the secrets we all hide from our partners — even when the premise is extreme. These dangerous love stories have become so popular that they’ve even garnered a new subgenre: “marriage thrillers.” And while there’s nothing new about the notion that marriage is scary, it takes on a much darker meaning in these 10 novels.

The All-Female “Ghostbusters” Might End Up Being The Greatest Lady Comedy Of All Time

This is what the film industry needs: Paul Feig (director of “Bridesmaids”) is going to be teaming up with “Parks and Recreation” writer Katie Dippold, with whom he also worked on “The Heat,” to make an all-female revamp of “Ghostbusters.” Dippold has a long career in comedy: In addition to her work on “Parks and Rec,” she was in the Upright Citizens Brigade, she’s written for “MADtv,” and she’s a sketch regular on “Conan.”

So, a female-written, classic comedy remake starring women, directed by someone who has a track record of creating hilarious female buddy movies. HELL YES. And it’s “Ghostbusters,” specifically. Question: What female comedians are up to the task of out-comedying Bill Murray? I can think of a few who might…
