From Book to Screen: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Check out what I thought of the book... but how did the adaption do? I pegged this book as a great one to adapt with Tim Burton at the helm… was my guess correct?

Goodjob, Oldboy

It's been fun participating in the Blind Spot Series blogathon over at The Matinee during 2014. Exploring Asian and foreign films as well as modern and not so modern classics has been eye-opening. As a Korean cult classic Oldboy blindsided me with its visual spectacle… How can a filmmaker review Oldboy by Park Chan-Wook and think 'I need to remake this movie?' I… Continue reading Goodjob, Oldboy

Visualizing the Modern Themes in Her

A stellar actor can elevate the worst tripe, while special effects tend to plasticize story, yet the right art direction will add to not only the world but the characters as well. Purely Production is a monthly post where I explore the different elements that affect a finished media, for good or ill. We’ll forget about writing… Continue reading Visualizing the Modern Themes in Her

The Twisted Usual Suspects

When I heard about the Blind Spot Series blogathon over at The Matinee I knew I would participate this year. I loved the idea of concentrating on 12 foreign and classic movies that every movie lover must see. My list for 2014 is here and I've included some modern misses and Asian films from my watchlist as well. As a modern classic… Continue reading The Twisted Usual Suspects

Blogathon: The Personification of Death

Andrew aka Fisti is holding a blogathon and I might very well make his deadline! He reminds us: "This is a blogathon about film, and film broaches God in many different (and subjective) ways, so I encourage all of your viewpoints and posts so as to make this a well-rounded collection of thoughts!" God and… Continue reading Blogathon: The Personification of Death

Blogathon: In the Mood for Love

Fandango Groovers Movie Blog is hosting a blogathon on movies that film lovers would suggest to Steve Rogers after he was defrosted in the modern world at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. Ruth over at Flixchatter participated, of course, here. Reading her and Ted's list I came across Wall-E as one of her choices and… Continue reading Blogathon: In the Mood for Love

Spinning-Off The Hunger Games

I don't know much about Sati over at Cinematic Corner. I have read some of her comments on blogs I do know and she's one opinionated lady. I can relate! Her blogathon was an intriguing idea but not as much as her choice to showcase Beth Macintyre from Black Swan. When I found myself pondering my own choice later I… Continue reading Spinning-Off The Hunger Games

Saving the Spirit of Creativity

Each week I take a gander at our local cheap theater. These are movies that are close to being released on DVD or which bombed at the box office. Of my choices a few weeks ago, I never expected to see Saving Mr. Banks. While I loved Mary Poppins growing up I wasn't particularly interested… Continue reading Saving the Spirit of Creativity

The First Act of Walter Mitty

Contrary to what you may believe is true, few people sympathize with a victim of bullying. From a range of pitiful to sneer worthy, the majority of bystanders feel it's a fault in you for being a target. Even if such people don't look down on you, they certainly don't want to be friends with… Continue reading The First Act of Walter Mitty

Adaptions and The Book Thief

In the world of book to movie adaptions there is a lot of competition. If these movies would have to duke it out there would have to be playoffs to determine the champion. One such movie hit theaters and died. Was it really such a bad adaption? Did the movie not even work separate from… Continue reading Adaptions and The Book Thief

The Source of Ender’s Game

Ender's Game has a soft spot in my heart because it hold's one of the truly best emotional journeys within its pages. The pinnacle of a coming of age story, it's the best book for boys or really anyone who needs some personal empowerment. Ender proves to be the epitome of a leader and his… Continue reading The Source of Ender’s Game
