Making nerd boys sad

Given that science fiction novels nearly always make silly movies, a neophyte is at the helm and they plan to squeeze two novels into a single movie, I have little hope that the upcoming Hyperion movie will be any good. I will watch of course, and maybe weep. Seriously, is there anyway the Shrike is going to look cool at all? And yes, LA Confidential proves you can reduce a book to its philosophical essence, but TWO of them? I doubt it.

Cormac McCarthy's No Countrty for Old Men is already the second one, nicht wahr?

Allow me to re-state, taking a lenghty multi-plot novel like Hyperion or LA Confidential is hard. No Country was compact enough to make for a relatively easy transfer.
