I love books, I love movies and i’m scared of book to movie adaptations. I’m actually really easy to please when it comes to this situation, I know movies can not be exactly like the book. I also really like seeing an other vision of the same story, but, obviously, the adaptation is not always well done, which leaves me with a feeling of fear every time I learn one of my book is being turn into a film.
BUT, that doesn’t stop me from wanting to see some of my favorite stories make into movies, here’s a list of 5 books that i think deserve a movie adaptation.
In the last couple of weeks, i saw some interesting movies. I just thought it would be fun to talk a little about some of them.
After death, there is no heaven or hell, only a bar that stands between reincarnation and oblivion. There the attendant will, one after another, challenge pairs of the recently deceased to a random game in which their fate of either ascending into reincarnation or falling into the void will be wagered. Whether it’s bowling, darts, air hockey, or anything in between, each person’s true nature will be revealed in a ghastly parade of death and memories, dancing to the whims of the bar’s master. Welcome to Quindecim, where Decim, arbiter of the afterlife, awaits!
In 1972, a popular student in Yomiyama North Middle School’s class 3-3 named Misaki passed away during the school year. Since then, the town of Yomiyama has been shrouded by a fearful atmosphere, from the dark secrets hidden deep within.
Twenty-six years later, 15-year-old Kouichi Sakakibara transfers into class 3-3 of Yomiyama North and soon after discovers that a strange, gloomy mood seems to hang over all the students. He also finds himself drawn to the mysterious, eyepatch-wearing student Mei Misaki; however, the rest of the class and the teachers seem to treat her like she doesn’t exist. Paying no heed to warnings from everyone including Mei herself, Kouichi begins to get closer not only to her, but also to the truth behind the gruesome phenomenon plaguing class 3-3 of Yomiyama North.
Another follows Kouichi, Mei, and their classmates as they are pulled into the enigma surrounding a series of inevitable, tragic events—but unraveling the horror of Yomiyama may just cost them the ultimate price.
If you’ve been following me for a while, here or on Instagram, you probably know that horror is my favorite genre. I have been a horror movie addict for as long as I can remember. So, since it’s October and Halloween month, I decided to share with you some of my favorite horror films available on Netflix. Obviously, I’m from Canada so you may not be able to find all the movies on the US or UK Netflix.
It’s been a while since I did one of those blog post when I just sit down, watch something and write down everything I think/feel/love/hate about it. Since I was going to start this new series on Netflix tonight, I decided to just do it. I always enjoyed doing those blog post. So, if you don’t know, Stranger Things is a sci-fi series created by Netflix that came out today. I’ve been excited for this series for weeks now, it just looks like something I could really love.
A couple of days ago, I read The 100 and the reason why I first picked it up was because I kept hearing how AMAZING the TV show is. Today is the day I watch episode one, I really hope I get to see what all the hype is about.
