Beauty and the Beast Review; or, an incredibly fangirly ramble

If you know me, you know how much I love Beauty and the Beast. Belle is my favorite Disney princess, the 1991 animated film is my favorite Disney film, my internet handle is inspired by it (@enchtdrose) as is the title of my blog, which you can read all about in a previous post. Obviously… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast Review; or, an incredibly fangirly ramble

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” Review

I foresee writing about this several more times as I continue to watch/read/think about the film/screenplay and chat with other fans on the internet about the series. At this point, I have only seen the movie once. I've just started reading the screenplay (I'm only like 10 pages in), and I plan to finish the… Continue reading “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” Review

The Magicians on Syfy

The Magicians is a new show on the Syfy channel based on Lev Grossman's Magicians trilogy. I read the trilogy recently (you can read my reviews here, here, and here, including a bit about meeting the author!) so I was interested to hear it was being adapted into a TV show. But I was skeptical… Continue reading The Magicians on Syfy

On Mockingjay Part 2

Cheers to TFIOS

So I saw "The Fault in Our Stars" at 9PM on June 5th, along with a theater full of screaming teenage girls. I'm not blogging about the film itself. As an adaptation, the film was wonderful. As a film, it was also wonderful. I really have no desire to talk about the quality of the… Continue reading Cheers to TFIOS

Ender’s Game

So here comes the first in a series of exciting movie releases this season, from YA novel adaptations, to more Disney-Hans Christian Andersen films, to a film about a film about a book, to more epics from Peter Jackson. First on my list is "Ender's Game." Just to not completely ignore the issue, I will… Continue reading Ender’s Game

A note on film adaptations (inspired by “Gatsby”)

I'm just going to come out with it:  I LOVED Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby."  Loved it. Yes, I've read the book.  Twice, in fact.  And I saw the movie twice.  As a book lover and a film lover, I've been kinda disappointed in the negative responses Gatsby has been getting from all over the… Continue reading A note on film adaptations (inspired by “Gatsby”)
