When I was on my movie-hunt yesterday searching for stuff about Scream 4 and the next Jurassic Park film (and also watching Air Force One on TV!) I came across a few good blogs, including ABC News Articulate, featuring “Movie Minutiae” posts on movies like Jaws and Waterworld. I like both of these sea tales for different reasons, despite the fact that the latter had the cack kicked out of it.
There are two new ways to read books. First of all, there’s Google Book Search, which allows readers to find and read public domain books on-screen. As an author, you may also provide digital .pdf versions of your own works or sample/preview chapters and tables of contents. Books that are out of copyright like Peter Pan can be found in the book search’s ever growing library.
I’ve lost count of the number of comic book adaptions that have popped up in the last few years, but barring The Dark Knight, Hellboy 2 is the one I’ve been waiting for.
I loved Ron Perlman as Hellboy and del Toro’s directing, not to mention his take on Mignola’s world of nutcase Nazis and and Lovecraftian monsters. From the trailer it was quite plain to see that Hellboy 2 would be bigger – at least visually and character-wise, but I was a little worried that the CGI-factor would swallow up everything else.
