  1. I usually avoid the movie tie-in version of books because they are awful. But there were two I purchased because I just could not pass them up. One was Charlie St. Cloud ENOUGH SAID. And one was a copy of Romeo & Juliet with the 1960s actors on it! I found it at a used bookstore and it was $2 and I already have so many versions of R&J but I can’t say no to Leonard Whiting. He’s a hunk and he looks a lot like Zac.

    • an ex-girlfriend borrowed most of the comics i have that have been adapted into movies and never gave them back. i’ve been trying to find a new copy of 30 days of night but they all have NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE splashed across the cover :(

  2. Has there ever been an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice in any genre that has actually been faithful to the fact that Jane is supposed to be 1000x hotter than Elizabeth? Like, Elizabeth is supposed to be pretty but Jane is The Most Beautiful Creature on Earth(TM), and yet they keep casting people like Keira Knightley and Lily Collins and Aishwarya Rai as Elizabeth.

    • have you watched the Lizzie Bennet diaries on youtube? Jane is def. the hottie in it, but I also disagree slightly because Lizzie is described as being beautiful. Yes Jane is the bombshell, but Lizzie isn’t supposed to be plain or anything. That’s Mary’s job.

      • Also, Lizzie describes Jane as being beautiful. It might be because Lizzie looks up to Jane or is a little self-deprecating. But anyway, definitely watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

    • The woman who plays Jane in the Keira Knightley version is stunning. I’m not sure I see the issue there.

  3. Am I the only one who finds this Great Gatsby movie to be REALLY REALLY WEIRD? Just the whole thing, from the concept, to the soundtrack, to the goddamn motherfucking 3-D. The whole thing is just all up in my base, freakin’ out my dudes.

    • YES. Everyone is so excited about it, but the whole execution is so freaking off. Like, just call it “Baz Luhrman pukes art deco” and it might be ok. I have no idea how any of this is Gatsby, but I guess I’m just turning into a curmudgeon.

    • it looks terrible, more “pussy patrol” than fitzgerald

  4. Did Jay-Z not read The Great Gatsby because Gatsby does say at one point, “Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can!” And in relation to the soundtrack, I wish they had.
