    This would have been a perfect film if not for the casting of Keanu Reeves! I kept expecting him to say 'Dude!' somewhere in the movie. Something like this: 'I am on the train to Byoudepest (his pronounciation in the film, not mine), DUDE!' I really do love this version, Coppola almost got it right. I saw it in the theater when it came out and there was dead silence at the end, except for all of the sniffling and sobbing going on. I like how almost all the special effects are not CGI, but real old-fashioned camera gimmickery.

    It was! I also liked Prey (that's the first MC book I read), Next, and all the others I've read. I would also recommend Pirate Latitudes which was published posthumously (as you might know...)

    I haven't read Twilight. I'd prefer to watch Buffy.

    I thought Next was great too!

    I don't know that I've ever seen a movie that was better than the book. Some are about the same, though. Usually the books are better.

    I had read The Sentinel prior to seeing the film, but I did not read the full novel until after seeing the film.
