This post is kind of behind, but it still stands for work!
Now, there’s a lot of positive things to say about this movie. I absolutely loved the movie! Just like I love everything about LOTR, but I have some issues with it as well. Most of the things that happen in this movie do not actually happen in the book. I personally believe the main reason that they added a lot of it was to make it into a trilogy to make money.
Often time I’m able to read without listening to music or having any noise around me. I often get distracted by having the TV on or the music on my laptop playing and I have to turn it off to concentrate. When I’m in public places I find that I have to read while listening to my iPod just so I can drown out the noise that is going on around me. If I don’t I find myself people watching, or not knowing what I’m reading at the time. I bet that’s true for a lot of people who like to read in their free time in public places.
Of course I went and saw this at midnight, or really the 11:30 showing I believe it was, so sorry for the late post. Y’all know I get behind. Did I mention that I bought my tickets a month in advance too? Yeah that happened, I’m a little crazy. Anyway! We should all know what the book is about because we read it before the movie right?! If not, shame on you! Always try to read the books before the movies! So much can be left out of a movie, like some of the questions people have, due to time constraints. You don’t want to be in the theater for 5 hours watching it, and they don’t want to spend billions making the movie.
You would think social media would be a blogger’s best friend! Right?
I’m not going to lie, I was kind of sad after I left the movies. I absolutely loved everyone of these books, which you know if you read my posts, but I was bored by the movie. I think they did some great things like the way the demons looked and the way the institute looked. I especially appreciated that the werewolves truly turned into werewolves and not half men creatures. I wasn’t thrilled with who Magnus Bane was played by because I expected him to be so much more, so much…extra. Instead he was flat, and the only interesting thing he did was called Alec cute. Jace wasn’t cocky enough for me and he didn’t make his voice charismatic enough. I absolutely love Jamie Campbell Bower in Sweeny Todd, and like his performance in that so much more.
I like the way they brought the witch light to life, and how they made the Steeles different for different people. I also really appreciate that I felt like they stuck to the book really well, and nothing was added, or anything significant was taken out. I like how they made the buildings change when looking past the glamour. They did great when it came to the special effects, and making it all come together.
I waited so long to see this movie, and was so excited for it, and now I can’t say that I’m excited for it at all. I still recommend that you see it of course, but I wouldn’t have high hopes. Am I going to go see the rest of the movies as they come out. Well yeah, of course, and I do believe that they’ll get better as they go. I’m not sure if the movie is still in theaters, It’s probably not, but if it is I recommend you seeing it to support this growing franchise!!

With my last year of undergrad starting it was time for me to take the road trip back up to Pittsburgh. When ever I start a trip, I always try and think of what books can I bring. With a twelve hour road trip, I knew I was going to need to work on something. On this trip I brought both of JK Rowling’s new books, the non Harry Potter ones, but I didn’t get very far. I ended up sleeping most of the time, which isn’t bad. I know some people say that can’t read in the car because it makes them sick. I know for me it’s a great way to pass the time. You get lost in the world of the book and then next thing you know it’s been a few hours and it’s time for you to drive again. I never got into the audio book thing. Maybe it’s because I’m a visual person and I would zone out of the book and miss a few pages. I don’t know. What do you do for road trips?! Until Next time,

I think that I’ve probably done a post like this before, but the other night I was reading a book in bed, instead of reading on my iPad. I know woe is me reading a book instead of an iPad, but the problem I was having was the book was rather large!! (I was reading Dan Brown’s Inferno and Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More) It was hard for me to hold the book and get comfortable in bed.
