I love reading your comments, and I thought I’d address a few of them in today’s blog.
RE: “The Last Chance Cafe”.
This movie was made for Lifetime TV, and I enjoyed visiting the set and meeting Kevin Sorbo (Kevin is not only handsome, but smart and nice, too), who played the hero, Chance. Given the budget for the film and the obvious difficulty of fitting all that material into about ninety actual minutes of film, I thought they did a good job. The screenwriter, Pam Wallace, was one of the three scriptwriters who won an Academy Award for the Harrison Ford movie, “Witness”. I enjoyed the Lifetime movie–obviously I’m prejudiced :)–but I sure understand where you’re coming from when it comes to substance. In my experience, movies almost never live up to the books they’re based on, and I think that’s mainly because of space/time constraints. In order to be effective in visual media, I think a book needs to turned into a mini-series, like “Lonesome Dove” and “Roots”, so there’s room for everything.
There will eventually be at least one more Mojo book. I’ll keep you posted on when. At the moment, I’m up to my eyeballs in cowboys–and trust me, I’m not about to complain.
