The UK has chosen its favorite book-to-film adaptations

27 September 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To the surprise of no one, Harry Potter has just topped a UK list of fan's favorite book-to-film adaptations. How did your favorites fare? J.K. Rowling's adaptations also topped a similar list last year. Considering she's British and writer of one of the biggest franchises in history, I would assume Rowling's work will easily continue taking the top spot for years to come. Unless they decide to do a reboot which somehow turns out terrible. Let's not think about that. According to The Guardian, 32% of 2,000 cinemagoers put Harry Potter at the top of their lists. It's a relatively small sample of people living in the UK, but something tells me it would stay on top even if it were larger. Here's the full list as they voted: 1. The Harry Potter series (Jk Rowling) 2. A Christmas Carol (Charles Dickens) 3. The Shawshank Redemption (Stephen King) 4. The Lord of the Rings saga »

The Best Picture Oscar winners that had sequels

25 February 2016 11:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




More Best Picture Oscar winners have had sequels than you may think. This lot, in fact...

There’s still an element of snobbery where sequels to certain films is concerned. Whereas it’s now almost compulsory to greenlight a blockbuster with a view of a franchise in mind, it’s hard to think of most Best Picture Oscar winners being made with a follow-up in mind. Yet in perhaps a surprising number of cases, a sequel – or in the case of Rocky, lots of sequels – have followed.

These cases, in fact…

All Quiet On The Western Front (1930)

Followed by: The Road Back

Don’t be fooled into thinking sequels for prestigious movies are a relatively new phenomenon. Lewis Milestone’s 1930 war epic All Quiet On The Western Front, and its brutal account of World War I, is still regarded as something of a classic. A solid box office success, »
