A Monster Calls
« on: January 06, 2017, 04:16:01 pm »
Of course I've got to be the one to start this.

Well, it took four years, but at long last my all-time favorite book is being adapted into film. Ever since I first read this book (and the numerous times I've reread it since) I've had it in my head that it would be extremely difficult to make a truly successful film based on this book, because so much of it is simply unfilmable in the way it's written. But the trailers and reviews have gotten me very hopeful and excited, and today, with a heavy heart, I will finally see it.

Has anyone else seen it, and if you have, what are your thoughts?

Is anyone aside from Jed (and, I assume, John) seeing this? I'm not.

I'll probably give it a shot. It's lower in my priorities, so I might wait for DVD.
