I really liked the first How to Train Your Dragon. It was cute and it was fun. Cute, the sequel had. Fun, more or less. But it was still missing something.
Apparently Jeff Bridges has been trying to have The Giver turned into a movie for the better part of two decades. Originally, he wanted to have his father in the eponymous role. He even apparently went so far as to have a version filmed somewhere, although so far as I know that version has never been made publically available.
I wonder if that one diverged so much from the book?
Disclaimer time: I have a full time job now. And a baby at home. Some combination of these things means that I have nowhere near as much time to go see movies as I once did. So it goes.
But rather than let this particular part of my blog go to waste, I think that I'll go ahead and keep writing up movies. Just instead of movies in theaters, I'll aim for new releases on DVD / VOD.
Edge of Tomorrow.
