Lately I've been watching a lot of movies. This is due to the fact that I am working from home twice a week (one nice thing about being a code monkey is that it doesn't matter where we are physically to do our work) and as such I've been having the DirecTV DVR cranking away in the background. In the past week I caught both The Number 23 with Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell in Stranger Than Fiction. Two totally different toned movies but it struck me that they are both movies about books rather than a movie based on a book. When I started thinking about that subject... movies about books... another movie came to mind, Adaption with Nicolas Cage, that actually is a movie about a screen writer adapting a novel to be a movie. Then I hit a mental road block thinking about other movies that would fall into the category. What others can you think of? TV or movie or radio or play or anything that comes to mind?
