I'm watching Swordfish and I still love the chemistry between Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry. I would love to see a part 2 where their paths cross again. I think this would be a really cool book idea.

What are some movies you've seen that would make good IR books?


message 2: by A.W. (new)

A.W. Danielle I concur. I've seen Swordfish twice and I thought the exact same thing.


Paganalexandria  | 4059 comments Something New obviously, but another great one would be Mission Impossible 2. That might be my favorite interracial movie. It was sexy, a lot of adventure, and complex heroine that isn't a goody-goody.


message 4: by A.W. (new)

A.W. Something New would indeed. Never seen Mission Impossible2 need to check it out.

It stars Tom Cruise and Tandie Newton, they are fire together.

They have these moments that are so sexy, but it has no nudity.

A.W. That sounds great. I definitely have to watch it. The Bodyguard would be another great one.

Yes definitely the Bodyguard.


Paganalexandria  | 4059 comments AW, I think Richonne fans would love 28 Days Later as IR with a zombie twist.

Megan (meganscoils) | 674 comments Something New was one of my favorite movies as a teenager.

I really liked The Words with Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana. I thought that movie was AMAZING!


message 10: by A.W. (new)

A.W. Megan I agree The Words was very good movie. This one is kinda of old but it would transition well into a good action/thriller novel...Taking the Heat starring Lynn Whitfield and Tony Goldwyn.

Flip (flipmode) | 126 comments Paganalexandria **wicked juices bubbling over** I agree with you on 28 Days later that would be awesome and epic

Kim (kimgm) | 1032 comments I would love to see My Last Day Without You as a book. It would give the reader a chance to learn explore more of Niklas and Leticia's relationship and possibly let us know what happened after the gig.

I love MI-2, but I admit I liked her chemistry with Sean more, at least until he dumped her after she infected herself. I know, I'm a bit twisted. :)

The Secret Laughter of Women was a really sweet movie. I would love a book along these lines.

I think that Skyfall has some elements I would love in an IR book. The hardened spy on a mission with his coworker who has her own way of doing things. I thought Daniel Craig and Naomie Harris had great chemistry.

Mel | 53 comments Romeo Must Die, it's an old movie but I think would be a good book.

HAH yeah I would love to read what happens to that lovely couple.....although the movie was really good but it kinda ended with me wanting more out of the cute couple :P

Ha! I just now read this comment. I've always loved the IR romance in Mission Impossible 2! It was incredibly sexy and the chemistry was off the charts! Thandie Newton's character was a great character who was parts sly and vulnerable. Loved it!!

Mstcat, part of the reason I had no interest in 3 was his character being married to another woman. Didn't like that at all, in my head Nyah was Ethan's soul mate. lol

Here! Here! And thanks for summing up why the other M I movies just didn't work for me.

I liked "Romeo Must Die" myself. It's interesting that a scene in which Jet Li and Aaliyah kiss was actually cut out of the movie because an "urban" focus group didn't like it.

A Bronx Tale was a good movie.


The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears (thefountainpendiva) | 1215 comments Does anyone remember the film Zebrahead with Michael Rappaport and N'bushe Wright(who also kicked ass in Blade and needs to be in more films because she's awesome)? I think it would make a great NA book.

Yes, I remember this movie. It was an introduction to both lead actors for me. The only other movies I've seen N'bushe Wright in are Dead Presidents with Lorenz Tate and Blade, as you already mentioned. She's really talented I hope to see her in more films.

That's back when Netflix had good stuff.
