I never saw the TV versions of any of these. I'm not sure what that says about me...or this as a theme.
Anyway...it's gonna have to be short and sweet this Thursday as part of Wandering through the Shelves' Thursday Movie Picks. I'm busy af this week.
The theme: Movies Adapted from TV Series.
My criteria: The first ideas that popped in my head.
Here are my picks:
dir. Andrew Davis, 1993
dir. Michael Mann, 2006
Three SNL Adaptations
dir. Steve Barron, 1993
dir. Penelope Spheeris, 1992
Wayne's World 2
dir. Stephen Surjik, 1993
"Sri Lanka. Formerly Ceylon. I had to find 1,000 brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door and mentions there's a little sweets shop on the edge of town. So, we go....and...it's closed. So, here's me and Keith (pronounced in the Cockney "keef") Moon and David Crosby breakin' into this little sweet shop. Well. Instead of a guard dog, they have this great big bloody Bengal tiger. I managed to take the tiger out with a can of mace, but the shop owner and his son...that's a different story altogether. But sure enough, we got the M&Ms and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show."
