What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

I'd like to see Battlefield Earth done right.  Although overall, I want to see new ideas rather than books and remakes.

No, i don't want an amazing series ruined by silly hollywood moviemakers.  I want a Flashman or a (good) Don Quixote production.

yeah thats a good point, although I would love to see a rpg video game based on the series. I have a vision that it might turn out similar to final fantasy

I'd like to see the book 'Starship Troopers' made in to a movie.

Where ever they pulled that script from to make the Starship Tooper movie (and the sequal.. ACK) must have required a proctologist.

bunch of B/S ... not able to do the Mobile suits right... atleast they got Michael Ironside to play the Lieutenant
heck i loved the animated series  atleast they actualy had a Mobile Infantry

I would like to see one of Heinlein's Alternate History books made into a movie but who would play Lazarus Long
sorry which 2 or 3 actors could play him IE at different ages.
that or a motion picture version of "Stranger In A Strange Land"

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

I want to see Time Line done right.  The book was fantastic, almost tailor made for a moive.  I have no idea how they screwed it up so much.

Its been a long time since I've read them, but the Paradox Alley books might make a fun B-movie.

My wife would like to see the Dark Tower series from Steven King
