Be it network adaptations like Hannibal and Shadowhunters or subscription services like Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events and Thirteen Reasons Why, it seems like books are really starting to take over the television-sphere in the last few years.

13 Reasons Why (Initial Thoughts)

This is a feature I’ve wanted to start for a while. I have often reviewed movie adaptations of books but rarely TV ones. This feature will cover both. Keep in mind that there will be spoilers. The first show I want to talk about came out via Netflix on March 31, 2017. Like another show I […]

Movie Review: Mockingjay Par..

Movie Review: Mockingjay Part 1

Strangely I wasn’t excited to see this movie. I hated the book, I thought it was lazy and boring and the end a big mess. But a fellow blogger wanted to see it and I figured why not? After all, the films have done a great job adapting the series and maybe they would fix […]

The Halloween Tree Movie Rev..

The Halloween Tree Movie Review

Let me start by saying that this is one of my favorite Halloween movies and I watch it every year. Hanna Barbera adapted this cartoon from Ray Bradbury’s Halloween novella of the same name, changing what they needed to and maybe a few things they didn’t need to. This little movie won an Emmy.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader Movie Review

I feel like I watched an entirely different movie from what this was supposed to be. I’m about to ask a question I’ve asked many times after finished a movie adaptation of a book so forgive me for being repetitive… DID YOU PEOPLE EVEN READ THIS BOOK? It’s movies like this that make me wonder […]

I watch a lot of movie adaptations and I know a lot of people have opinions on every one of them. This is one that I have a LOT of opinions about. There are times when I see a movie adaptation and I find myself asking, “did these people even read the book?” This was […]

The Giver: The Movie Review

The Giver: The Movie Review

So I read the book a couple of days ago in preparation for this movie, because I believe in reading the book before watching the film adaptation. I wanted to believe that the people who were saying “forget everything you know about the book” were exaggerating. Boy, did I get my hopes dashed. If you […]

The Fault in Our Stars Movie..

It’s here, guys! I am absolutely in love with the look of this movie. It may not be exactly what I pictured but what I’ve seen looks just as good. I am looking forward to how they are going to portray some of the more minor characters and I’m sure this movie is going to […]
