Fun With Books

OK, this book (and this film) I like a lot. Enough that I bought the book 21 years ago:

2Books 8-20-2012 003

Here's the back cover (along with an advertising slogan that no longer makes much sense to me, but hey, other promotion worked obviously):

3Books 8-20-2012 002

Something about this page (where the T-1000 is shown melting to oblivion) struck me:

1Books 8-20-2012 001

Back in college, I copied that page of photos --

1A - Books 8-20-2012 001

-- and made it into a little board on my dorm room door, showing what I was up to. The upper left (I think that shot looks like me!) was "I'm sleeping"; I think the next shot to the right was "I'm eating." One of the middle ones was "I'm coming apart" (stress). The lower right picture I labelled "I'm really gone."

Added 1/13/2013: Huh: I still have that board. I just found it, five months after I wrote this. Here's how I labelled the six photos, because why not get it exact?:

Left&&&&Right
I'm sleeping&&&&I'm eating&&&
I'm in here, spreading out and getting comfortable&&&&I'm spreading myself thin (I'm studying)&&&&&&&&
I'm coming apart at the seams (finals coming up)&&&&I'm gone&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

I wish that there were proper novelizations of Cameron's later films.

I'm not sure True Lies and Titanic were well suited for novelizations, honestly. Especially since nowadays you're much more likely to get novelizations of flat-out fantasy/SF films than action, comedy or historical films.

I wonder if he's still planning to write an Avatar novel himself. Articles in 2010 said he planned to, but my (limited so far) Googling hasn't given me an update. Maybe he isn't; maybe he is but is waiting until he's gotten more Avatar films out.

We'll always have the Abyss novelization...

One of my favorite Orson Scott Card works, come to that. (S'far as novelizing Avatar goes, I wouldn't hold my breath- if I recall, he said the same thing about Titanic back in the day.)
