Our Blog is Back and We're Talking Movies!

cloud atlas   We’ve been experiencing several small glitches during December and January as we’ve been working hard to improve everything about Postertext. One of those glitches was with our blog which meant no new posts for quite a while. Thankfully, we’ve got the blog back on track and we will be posting daily articles from now on. I hope you missed the blogs as much as I missed posting them! So let’s break in the Postertext blog today with a familiar topic: movies based on books. It seems that November through January have been big months for great films that are renditions of amazing books! I have compiled a list of several of the more popular ones:
  1. A no brainer is Peter Jackson's film The Hobbit, which is based on J.R.R. Tolkien's famous book.
  2. A lot of people were really looking forward to the Life of Pi film based on the book of the same title by Yann Martel, but there seemed to be a lot of controversy about it. Some claimed there was way too much CGI in the film and others said it deviated too much from the true message of the book. What do you think?
  3. Although the recently released Les Miserables film is based more on the musical, we can’t forget the inspiration for both originally come from Victor Hugo's incredible novel!
  4. And finally, David Mitchell's book Cloud Atlas has also hit the silver screen in a visually enticing movie by the same name.
  As always, I would love to hear your thoughts on them. Did you like the film? Do you feel it adequately represented the books? What would you change about the films? Happy reading and watching!  :)
