Talera vs Adaptations

Posted 18th September 2011 at 10:55 PM by Talera

So another book has been made into a film. Naturally you compare the book to the movie, but how do you decide if the movie is a good reproduction of the books?

A few friends and I have been discussing this of late. What elements do we need in order to provide the movie with our tick of approval? While initially I thought most of us would agree, given most of us tend to agree when a movie is a good version or not, I was totally incorrect.

Sitting here with my 2yr old daughter reclining on my knee. She's chomping through apple slices and watching Peppa Pig on one half of the screen while I'm browsing TOG on the other half.

Perfect Saturday morning.

Talera vs Assault on Precinct 13

I think this review may cause some people to wonder what Iím on, or want to hate me for things Iím saying.

I know this movie came out yonkers ago, but I only got around to seeing it last night. Currently Iím on two minds about whether I should have bothered.

Ethan Hawke, good actor, pinnacle in my opinion was Gattaca and to be honest since he split with his wife, he looks more and more washed out (but I do acknowledge some good movies in that time). Which of course...
