all the stars and thumbs...i bought the gorgeous coffee table book with full page film photos and the audiobook (great narrator) and will definitely revisit. full of thoughtful insight, i.e. Llewyn Davis WAS the cat (probably a tomcat :) the endpapers are of course a rendering of the Dude‘s famous rug. recommended for all cinephiles, especially Cohen fans 👍👍

Beauty Queen Killer/The | Bruce Gibney, B Gibney
post image

in the 80s this monstrous man kidnapped, tortured and killed more young women than can be imagined. despite the cover, it‘s not sensationalist but more about police work and the FBI finally closing in. very much a cautionary tale as he slipped through every crack in the system and should have been put away years before. very personal for me as i knew one of the girls and her family. so sad. #ATrueCrimeStory #LitsyReadingChallenge2018

Cinfhen Wow 😮 sounds like a fascinating read. And to know one of the victims 💔 1y

CSeydel Hand sanitizer! That‘s what I use to get the residue off. Works great, I always have it around, and it (usually 😬) doesn‘t damage the book cover. 1y

unconventional history of what astronauts have to go through and behind the scenes scientific info that is unbelievably weird. i loved it! though i definitely will think about space travel from a less glamorous perspective now 😧 #LitsyReadingChallenge2018 #AboutSpaceOrAstronauts 🚀

#KingAtoZ amazingly, according to Wikipedia, there are 79 movie adaptations or projects in development (not including stage and television)! i have a lot of his books but this is the only actual #MovieTieIn i could find. not much new with this book but he does give a short introduction to each story and at the end he lists his 10 favorite adaptations, including Dolores Claiborne :)

Sweettartlaura I‘m curious... what does he say about The Shining in here? In Danae Macabre he doesn‘t really pan it at all. Yet the story is he hates Kubrick‘s version of it. Does he shed any more light on it here? (edited) 2y
