If science fiction is a genre of ideas, is there any wonder Hollywood doesn’t get it?
Look. There are are only two truly great science fiction movies. The first is Stanley Kubrick’s 2001, written in collaboration with Arthur C Clarke. The second is Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott and adapted from Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. You may disagree with this statement. You would be wrong. Let’s move on.
One thought on “Why Hollywood can’t get the hang of science fiction”
Yeah, you’d rather have me comment at the article, but I don’t want another logon, sorry.
Anyway, the author I’d most like to see well adapted is Le Guin.
Her novels I’d most like to see big and beautiful and smart on the big screen are The Word for World Is Forest and The Dispossessed.
