「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Looking forward: Inferno 地獄解碼

Looking forward: Inferno 地獄解碼



Dan Brown 丹布朗 novel series 的 The Lost Symbol 本來打算拍成電影,但可惜連 casting 出了幾次都胎死腹中,以為從此 Dan Brown 小說將會成為絕響 之際 。。。。。





November 3 十一月三日,香港將比北美僅僅遲一週(October 28th),上映改編自 Dan Brown 的另一本小說 Inferno,也是 Professor Robert Langdon 系列 港譯:地獄解碼。






本小說早已購入多時,閣置在書架上總提不起勁兒去閱讀,這次恐怕要趁週末開幾晚夜車,先讀完小說才去看電影。


還記得依照過往經驗,若先看完小說才看電影,每每總會在戲院內,咬牙切齒痛罵改編得支離破碎,又刪去 某某and某某plus某某 精彩段落,影響集中欣賞電影。


可能,今次趁機會一反以往之道,一於先看電影之後才讀小說 。。。。。。這結果可能再沒勁兒去讀小說,本 novel 繼續放在書架上封塵囉!!!!






主角 Professor Robert Langdon 蘭登教授,仍然由 Tom Hanks 湯漢斯 擔綱,不境歲月催人 阿甘 再不年輕,Tom Hanks 演 Captain Sully 已呈老態,時隔十多年再 羅拔演蘭登教授 也面頰鬆弛,比起演 da Vinci code 達文西密碼 2006年, 和 Angels and Demons 天使與魔鬼 2009年,都已過了很時隔多年,無復當年之勇。猶幸掌舵的仍然是 Ron Howard 朗候活。





如無意外書迷小說迷 嗜悲,將會儘早入場觀看電影,looking forward to see “Inferno 地獄解碼”,至於評論可能先寫好,再等遲一點才登出來,以免影響各位入場看電影的意欲!!!


PS:
Dan Brown 下一本 Robert Langdon 小說: Origin, 將在 September 2017 面世,不過以往經驗先出精裝 hardcover 硬皮版本,至於 paperback 恐怕要多等 一年半載 矣!!!

SBB: I usually prefer to watch the movie first before reading the original story book. For example: I had really enjoyed the movie "Blade Runner" and was not disappointed when I found out later that the screen play actually departed quite a bit from the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". Yes, you can tell I am more of a movie-goer than a book-reader.

thanks HBB introducing


【維基百科】Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (retitled Blade Runner: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in some later printings) is a science fiction novel by American writer Philip K. Dick.

First published in 1968, the novel is set in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco, where Earth's life has been greatly damaged by nuclear global war. Most animal species are endangered or extinct from extreme radiation poisoning, so that owning an animal is now a sign of status and empathy, an attitude encouraged towards animals. The book served as the primary basis for the 1982 film Blade Runner.

The main plot follows Rick Deckard, a bounty hunter who is faced with killing ("retiring") six escaped Nexus-6 model androids, while a secondary plot follows John Isidore, a man of sub-par IQ who aids the fugitive androids. In connection with Deckard's mission, the novel explores the issue of what it is to be human. Unlike humans, the androids are claimed to possess no sense of empathy.




However I don't recall if I have seen this movie in the eighties
