From Page to Screen: Little Brother

24 03 2010

I have decided to start a new series called: From Page to Screen. These posts will feature new movies (or future movies) that are based on books.

I’m pretty excited about this one. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is quite the thriller. Here’s the summary from our Summer Reading List:

“After a terrorist attack, computer hacker Marcus is held by the Department of Homeland Security and tortured in a secret prison. Upon release, he vows to take down a system that threatens the rights of every citizen.”

You’ll definitely be into this one if you like computers, technology, and takin’ down the man!

This book has been optioned by Angryfilms – no further information or release date yet.

Keep your lips off!

18 12 2009

A movie theater in the UK has banned girls from kissing, hugging or otherwise engaging in any sort of public displays of affection with a life-size cardboard cutout of Twilight star Robert Pattinson. Why, you ask? Because of the spread of germs, silly! Who wants to say they caught swine flu from Edward Cullen? Well, if you put it that way…





Sherlock Holmes

8 12 2009

As you all eagerly await the new Sherlock Holmes movie (Robert Downey, Jr. is quite dashing, isn’t he?), I thought you might want to check out the original.

There are many Sherlock Holmes adventures to choose from — please don’t disregard them because you think they’re “old-fashioned!!” They are exciting, adventurous and really well-done. These stories won’t disappoint and they’ll give you a great background for the movie.

Here’s a link to the catalog and some of what you can find in the Library.





New Moon soundtrack – review

18 11 2009

With the much anticipated November 20 release of the movie New Moon, devotees will get great satisfaction in listening to this soundtrack. Like the soundtrack of Twilight, the music in New Moon is moody, dark, and a perfect fit for the romantic turmoil that’s so much a part of the story. Delivered by some of the best bands in alternative rock, this soundtrack is top-notch from start to finish. Fans will have a lot to sink their teeth into especially Death Cab for Cutie’s “Meet Me on the Equinox,” Muse’s “I Belong to You,” and the Killers’ “White Demon Love Song.”—Ellie R , Grade 11, Floral Park (NY) Memorial High School (courtesy of SLJ 11/18/09)

As a followup to our post on the original Bella and Edward dolls

I would like to direct everyone’s attention to the fact that Barbie is now jumping into the arena with their own version:

I think they’re weird.
