POLL RESULTS: Hyperion Goes Hollywood

Here are the results of the latest SF Signal poll.

QUESTION
Dan Simmons’ Hyperion is headed for the big screen. Is this a good idea?

RESULTS

(101 total votes)

I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s buying lunch in the cafeteria of sf shame for not having read this sf classic.

A few comments this week:

“I can’t see how you can do Hyperion in a single movie and wind up with anything much better than the mess that the DUNE movie turned out to be.” – Paul Weimer

“I would be afraid that they would turn this into a straight ‘horror flick’. Horrible monster goes around killing people on by one. Way too deep a novel to make into a movie.” – Cash

“Is Sean Connery available?” – platyjoe

“I hated that half of a book. I presume they will film Hyperion and the sequel since Hyperion is a completely incomplete story. BTW… Your polls are a lot less obvious on the left side of your web page. I’ve been missing a lot of them since you moved them.” – SF Fangirl
[John sez: Yeah…we know…and you’re not the only one. Our response numbers have been down ever since. This will be addressed soon.]

Be sure to check out this week’s poll – inconveniently located on our front page. If you find it, you can vote on your favorite book from the “Perfect Library”!

  1. I loved the Dune movie! The Harkonen were spot-on!
