Two Books Enter: An Assembly Such as This versus A Wife for Mr. Darcy

[Editor’s Note: Many thanks to Lauren at Kid Champ for letting me borrow her “Thundertome” idea for this review series. – TL] When I first got my Android-enabled phone, I searched for something to read on it during a long 45 minute subway commute.

But even so, Philadelphia itself would be a better stage for a story supposedly taking place in the City of Brotherly Love. Besides, your […]

Blightyvision: “The First Men in the Moon”

based on the novel by H.G. Wells directed by Damon Thomas written by Mark Gatiss starring Mark Gatiss and Rory Kinnear Good ol’ H.G. Wells.  Sometimes he makes all the sense in the world, and sometimes he makes precisely none.  What little Victorian faux-science there is behind “The First Men in the Moon” invites your […]

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: “The First Men in the Moon”

It was one small step for [a] man, and one giant leap for mankind.  But it was sixty years too late.  Or at least that’s what Mark Gatiss is saying.  His adaptation of an HG Wells classic gets a rooting in the real world, as a young boy waiting for the Apollo 11 astronauts to […]

Trisha’s Take: Mao’s Last Dancer review

Mao’s Last Dancer Directed by Bruce Berensford Starring Chi Cao, Bruce Greenwood, Amanda Schull, Joan Chen and more Rated PG for a brief violent image, some sensuality, language and incidental smoking There’s an art involved in adapting a book into a movie. Stray too much from the source material and you run the risk of […]

LEGO movie builds up steam with announcement of directors

After two years of blogging about upcoming movies, I thought that I’d seen all of the most ludicrous things you could adapt into a movie actually get the green light and funding to become a movie. Yes, even the upcoming Candyland and Battleship films. Until this exclusive from Borys Kit over at The Hollywood Reporter‘s […]
