Posted:this is a little post so i dont hijack the other of todays temprature based title threads.

it just reminded me has anyone seen this film, as an over veiw it is based in the near future where books are totally illegal (a bit like the recent-ish film equilibrium) and everyone has to watch tv.
its very good very deep and i havent seen it or found it for ages.

anyone else seen this?

Posted:i have done dude its by ray bradbury.
it would be rude to watch a film about books being illegal and not read the book.

its not a bad book to film conversion. the limitations of film being fairly well overcome.
but as usual the authors imagination can not be accurately portrayed on screen

Posted:I've seen it, it's ace! I guess I should read the book too, considering what the film is about.
The final scene is amazing though, when it just starts snowing. Fantastic!

Posted:I'm gonna have to agree with Vanize and MrDre. Read the book. I thought it was much better than the movie.
