Trailer: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Trailer: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just dropped and I, for one, and quite excited about it. I read the book by Seth Grahame-Smith ages ago (and even have a signed copy) and I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. It looks very tongue in cheek and fun and combines two things I love – Jane Austen and zombies. I also love the little nod to the BBC adaptation of P&P that they put in. I think this is going to be a fun movie to see with my other Austen loving friends.

Fall Pilot Season

Fall Pilot Season

Pilot season is upon us again and I thought I’d do a little post about some of the pilots that I was able to get a sneak peak of at Comic-Con earlier this summer. Here’s a little peek at some of the shows that I am most interested in.

My Name is Crystal and I’m an Addict: Outlander

My Name is Crystal and I’m an Addict: Outlander

Hey guys! Crystal here. I haven’t decided if this post is a cry for help or just a chance for me to fangirl over Outlander to anyone who will listen. I don’t know if “My Name is Crystal and I’m an Addict” is going to be a semi-regular thing where I tell you guys what I’m currently obsessed with but I just had to write up this post because I have fallen down an Outlander rabbit hole and I can’t get out (not that I want to either!).   I, like some fans, had read part of the book by… Read more »

What Does the Bookworm Say? Book You’d Like to See as a Movie or TV series

What Does the Bookworm Say? Book You’d Like to See as a Movie or TV series

Hi and welcome to What Does the Bookworm Say?, a feature where I discuss bookish topics with my friends at The Reader’s Antidote, Books Unbound and The Windy Pages. Each week, we will discuss a new bookish topic. This week’s topic is what book would you like to see as a movie or TV show? I’ve really been enjoying the comic book series Alex + Ada written by Jonathan Luna and illustrated by Sarah Vaughn. The series ended really recently and all of the issues are collected into 3 trade paperbacks right now, so you don’t have to wait to read it all. It’s a story set… Read more »

Trailer: Crimson Peak

Trailer: Crimson Peak

I’m really behind in my trailer game, which is funny because every time I go to the movies (which is almost every week), I have to sit through at least 20 minutes of trailers. I like a good trailer as much as the next person but I wish they would start before the movie showtime or show fewer of them. Anyways, I’ve seen a couple of trailers now for Crimson Peak, the upcoming film by Guillermo del Toro. I must have been hiding under a rock because I had no idea this was even being made until I saw the trailer….

Trailer: Shaun the Sheep

Trailer: Shaun the Sheep

Ahhhh! I am a big fan of Aardman Studios (who do the Wallace and Gromit films) and have been a fan of Shaun the Sheep for a while as well. As a knitter, I really can’t resist this adorable sheep who gets into all kinds of trouble. Shaun is getting his own film in August and I can’t wait! In the film, Shaun heads to the city to search for his missing Farmer. Shenanigans ensue. Is anyone else out there a fan of Shaun the Sheep? I’ll be taking my knitting to the movies with me when I go see… Read more »

WonderCon Spotlight: Orphan Black

WonderCon Spotlight: Orphan Black

  Hi, everyone! This is another post in my series of super late event recaps. I attended WonderCon at the end of March and I only attended two panels while I was there (the rest of the time was spent wandering the convention  floor). I already wrote about the iZombie panel here (and yay! it was renewed for a second season), but I also went to the Orphan Black panel. I am a huge fan of Orphan Black and was excited to get a chance to see the cast and learn more about Season 3 of the show (which just… Read more »

Trailer: Tomorrowland

Trailer: Tomorrowland

Hmmm so this post has been sitting in my drafts for the last month or so. I must have forgotten about it somewhere along the line but I guess it’s better late than never. I just saw a trailer for the movie again over the weekend and I think they are making a big push for it to be the big Memorial Day movie. I don’t think I have ever been on the Tomorrowland ride on which this movie is based, but I want to see it anyway. I am always down for something slightly fantastic and George Clooney doesn’t… Read more »

Wonder Con Spotlight: iZombie

Wonder Con Spotlight: iZombie

Hi, guys! Wow this post is abysmally late. April is what my friends like to call the start of “book season,” which means that there are a plethora or fantastic book events lined up back to back. This year was especially crazy and I pretty much had a book type event every weekend. I meant to put up all of my event recaps and posts much earlier but it’s been weeks and I have only just now found the time to do it. I also was struck down with a bout of food poisoning last week and was pretty useless… Read more »

New Trailer: Jurassic World

New Trailer: Jurassic World

I am a huge fan of Jurassic Park and, even though the sequels haven’t been as good, I get really excited whenever there is a new installment. Jurassic World is set to hit theaters this June and a new trailer just dropped. This one is set quite a bit after the last installment and shows the park as a successful theme park. Of course things go awry when the powers that be try to up the ante with some genetic dino testing. Chris Pratt looks great in this and the dinosaurs look fantastic. I also like that B.D. Wong makes… Read more »
