    Fifty fictional writers ranked from best to worst in this amazing compilation of writers and the films that brought their stories to life.  I enjoyed scanning the list because some movies I've seen and some I've missed and have added to my list of "to see soon" movies like Eli Cash, The Royal Tenenbaums.


    Everyone knows that writers love to write about writers. In fact, if an alien had to guess which profession was most common on earth based on our media alone—well, honestly it would probably be Detective, or Cop or something, but Writer would be up there too. So which fictional writers should we most avidly promote to our future alien overlords? I have no idea, but here I’ve taken a look at 50 favorite writers from film, literature and TV (and their many intersections). I’ve limited the list to fictional writers of literature—that is, I have excluded both journalists (yes, even Rory) and screenwriters.
