 Smile Hi Yaddo.

Juggernaut is one of my fave movies but the book is a let down ~ at one point, one of the characters has a bath and has, as my friend Borat would say, a "hand party" to relieve the tension. This is described in full.  Buggedout  Yuckies.

The novelization of Midnight Run is OK, but Marvin gets killed instead of just knocked out by Serrano's goons ~ other than that, it is pretty much what you and I saw. Good movie.

Lewis John Carlino's The Mechanic is almost the same as the film but not as good ~ Arthur Bishop is a little more whacked out than Charles Bronson played him.

Phase IV by Mayo Simon is very strange indeed and very creepy ~ I will never look at ants the same way again.  TeddyR

As time goes by, you will see
That we're going to be free, you and me
We'll touch the sky
Can you see in your mind's eye that we are one
We're all the same and life is just a simple game.

Incidentally, bored so I felt like posting the collection of movie novelizations I own:

Ghostbusters: The Supernatural Spectacular by Richard Mueller
King Kong by Delos W. Lovelace
King Kong by Christopher Golden
Clash of the Titans by Alan Dean Foster
Van Helsing by Kevin Ryan
Gargantua by K. Robert Andreassi
Warlords of Atlantis by Paul Victor
Resident Evil: Genesis by Keith R.A. DeCandido
Resident Evil: Apocalypse by Keith R.A. DeCandido
The Empire Strikes Back by Donald F. Glut

I also have novelizations of the Resident Evil games by S.D. Perry, all save Underworld, and, oddly enough, novelizations of episodes of the Goosebumps TV series (adaptations of adaptations? Yikes):

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Conspiracy
Resident Evil: Caliban Cove
Resident Evil: City of the Dead
Resident Evil: Nemesis
Resident Evil: Code: Veronica
Resident Evil: Zero Hour
Goosebumps: The Girl Who Cried Monster
Goosebumps: The Cuckoo Clock of Doom
Goosebumps: Welcome to Camp Nightmare

Yeah, I was a huge Goosebumps fan as a kid, and I still am to a certain extent.

I'm going to be getting a few more novelizations pretty soon, specifically:

Prophecy by David Seltzer
Gremlins by George Gipe
Gremlins 2 by David Bischoff
The Blob by David Bischoff
Ghostbusters 2 by Ed Naha
The Thing by Alan Dean Foster
Raiders of the Lost Ark by Campbell Black

Anybody read these and wanna warn me about them in advance? The Blob's already been bought and paid for off of eBay but if anyone's read any of the other ones and thinks they're totally worthless go ahead and let me know.

I remember not being a fan of the Raiders of the Lost Ark novel, action seemed to be cut out and stupid stuff was added in. Plus they turned the big fist fighting mecanic into a kid that just ruffles Indy a little.

Now it's time to sing the nation anthem IN AMERICA!!!

Sounds like the general description of the first mechanic with the wrench.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
