    Default It's Criminal They Haven't Made A Big Budget Movie Of...

    My take: Archie.

    What's yours?

    King Kong vs Godzilla. Sure, there's the Japanese classic, but I wouldn't call it big budget. There's also the big budget clip show of fight scenes from Hollywood earlier this year, but I wouldn't call that a movie...

    Not sure if this is intended to be serious or not but why would Archie need a big budget? Where would the money go?

    Archie is better on TV.

    My take is Enid Blyton fantasy books like The Folks of the Faraway Tree series.

    Certainly not for lack of trying and I also don't really see it ever getting made under a big budget studio but probably a Blood Meridian adaptation.

    Red Harvest has also been a pretty influential book on quite a few films and but the closest ever gotten to an adaptation was Last Man Standing but that's considered a remake of Yojimbo.

    Doctor Who.

    They did two movies (in 1965 and 1966 respectively), but they were basically kid films separate from the TV show and were essentially written & produced as such. I'd be okay if a new movie once again stood in its own continuity, but done really big and more in line--at least in tone--to the current show.

    The Peter Cushing movies were essentially big budget remakes of the first two Dalek stories. There's been talk about a Doctor Who movie over the years, most fans are against it since the suggestion was that they'd do just that and Americanize it, similar to the criticisms that were thrown at the 1996 TV movie back in the day. Honestly I think Doctor Who would work best having an animated movie in continuity that teams up a whole range of Doctors together, probably with the New Doctors at the front but also having the surviving classic Doctors in significant roles.

    I'd love to see Earth Sea on the big screen.

    I actually watched DOTD on the big screen, awesome way to see it, especially with the cinema specific additions with Strax and both Ten and Eleven.
