Page to Screen: Carrie

P2S Carrie

Okay, I’ll admit that I’m a little obsessed with this story since reading the book for the first time. (My review.) Perhaps you could say I’m getting a little CARRIED away with it.

No? Okay…

Ahem, anyway, I was really excited to see this film, for two reasons: one, because Carrie is amazing, and the 1976 film was good; and two, because Chloë Grace Moretz stars…

Page to Screen: Percy Jackson & the Sea of Monsters

pts som

I have finally seen the second film in the Percy Jackson franchise, and my emotions are heavily conflicted.

It seems to me that a film adaption of a book is in more danger of being ruined the closer to the original plotline it gets, which I think is the case with this movie. The first installment, The Lightning Thief, was different enough from the book that I still liked it (although I do my best not to think about the innacuracies, otherwise I get angry), but I have a feeling that Thor Freudenthal was trying to get the franchise to follow the books’ story closer, although still have creative differences to make the movie work.

Beginning to End: The Maze Runner Trilogy (Beginning)

Yay! My first Beginning to End post. Here, I shall describe what I thought of the first book in a series, share my theories, list my favourite character, quote, etc. before writing a review. Then, after finishing the series, I will say what I thought of the series overall, say whether or not my theories were correct, pick a favourite book, etc. I’ll probably review the final book in the series then, but leave the others without a full review.

Anyway, the first series I will be posting about is James Dashner’s The Maze Runner trilogy.
