I have a confession to make: I have never read The Hunger Games. Here’s another confession: prior to last week, I had never seen the film, either. Now that the DVD is readily-available (for $19.99 on indigo.ca until August 26th!), I was able to get my hands on the film, and finally watch it. I'm glad I did! Warning, spoilers ahead. The Hunger Games is based on the best-selling book series by Suzanne Collins. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic version of North America called Panem, in which the Capitol forces each of its 12 Districts to send one teenage girl and boy to compete in the Hunger Games, a brutal, nationally-televised fight to the death. Our heroes, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), are sent up from District 12 and are taught that surviving the Hunger Games takes more than just physical prowess, it takes a sharp wit. With help from their mentor, Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), they learn that the key to winning is sponsorship, and that in order to win sponsors, you need to stand out and that means putting on a show. The most interesting parts of the film were those in which Katniss and Peeta chose…
“I always read the last page of a book first so that if I die before I finish I'll know how it turned out.” — Billy Crystal to Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally.
It had to be you, Nora Ephron. I was sixteen-years- old and had just started dating my first boyfriend. When we saw When Harry Met Sally, we both became obsessed with Harry Connick Jr.’s score and the music of George and Ira Gershwin. I even bought the sheet music to “It Had to Be You” and worked with my piano teacher to master those jazzy rhythms. And while I don't necessarily agree with Harry that men and women can't be friends, I do believe in that ideal that the best lovers are always the best of friends.
It had to be you, Nora Ephron. I was twenty-seven-years-old and had just moved to Montréal. I had thought that I had left my bookselling ways behind me, the bookstore that I had been working at for five years had just shut down, and a good friend and I went to see You’ve Got Mail, a remake of one of my favourite James Stewart movies, The Shop Around the Corner. I…
Hello world! My name is Jacob. I'm a Communications Solutions Specialist at Indigo, and I'm new to the blogging team. Every once in a while, I'll have an existential crisis and feel the need to share my thoughts with you all. Luckily, all I think about is film and television...
What I have come to realize over many years of reading books and watching movies is that I love adaptations. I'm always intrigued by how the creative forces behind a movie decide to mould a book to serve their medium. While not every adaptation I've watched has been as good as the book that came before it, they've always been interesting. Adapting a novel is a challenging process, but an exciting one! Julie Kagawa is going through that process for the very first time as her highly anticipated Young Adult novel, The Immortal Rules, has just been optioned by production company Palomar Pictures. The announcement was made this morning, and Julie couldn't be more excited! Her reaction, which can be found on her blog, read: "EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"
