In the current world of YA-driven adaptations and fandoms, arguably the chief go-to example is Harry Potter. More recently, though, The Hunger Games has had a meteoric rise from a novel series to a successful film franchise with a devoted fandom.Read More

Good evening, readers, and this isn’t an April Fool’s joke because we come bearing the latest issue! This month, The Anglerfish focuses on The Hunger Games and all things dystopian, and we even scored an interview with Nerdfighter, YouTuber, and actress tessanetting! So kick back, relax, enjoy, and pass around our latest issue.
New issue of The Anglerfish focusing on The Hunger Games and all things dystopian! Give it a read and let us know what you think!
This segment had me in stitches last night.
still upset that the films never acknowledge that Peeta loses a limb in the first arena and goes through the Quarter Quell with a prosthetic leg
or that Katniss has suffered permanent hearing loss in one of her ears and now requires a hearing aid
An amputation and violence-inflicted hearing loss in a YA/popular film? What about the lack of positive Peacekeepers?
PEOPLE! PEOPLE! PEOPLE! It’s Travis/The Inspector as 12! :D
Sesame Street still has it … even with a bit of punnery.
The thing about Jennifer Lawrence is that every movie she’s in, you just think, I would be terrific friends with this person.
Which is actually a very weird phenomenon when you think about it, because, like, I probably wouldn’t be terrific friends with a young widow who loves ballroom dancing, or a bow hunter from District 12, or a shapeshifting mutant.
It’s been a little while … irregular posting aside. Been keeping up with work and reading and whatnot to the best of my ability. And there’s also the looking for potential applications to send in … which I should get to …
Anyways, a station alum dropped off a huge load of comics at the station within the last two or so weeks, so I brought a whole bunch back, which have helped to up my Novel Count (21) for the year (and I’m only counting complete runs, mind you, like Iron Man: Extremis). Additionally, I knocked off American Psycho this morning. We’ll be watching the movie in class after break. I haven’t seen it in a few years, so I re-watched a few scenes online last night and … I’m looking forward to re-watching the film, both in relation to the novel and because Christian Bale is vicious in it.
Other things … let’s see … The Hunger Games! I caught a midnight screening last week with a whole bunch of friends (Ryan, Kristen, and a few others), but we were all in separate theaters. The local AMC, which had 9 screens, filled up all of them. But then again, instead of regular movie theater seats, they have uber-nice reclining leather/faux-leather seats with movable arm rests, so there’s less seating in each theater … you’ve got to take the pros with the cons. And then I saw a screening earlier in the week with Marissa. Thoroughly enjoyed the film both times, despite the changes, but then again, Suzanne Collins was one of the co-writers of the film … And I thoroughly commend the sound mixers and editors.
Um … and I’m seeing Neil DeGrasse Tyson speak on campus in about 3 and a half weeks. ^_^
And now it’s time for spring break! Relaxation, some work, and PAX East!
25) The Hunger Games (dir. Gary Ross, 2012) - 4.5 out of 5
26) The Lady From Shanghai (dir. Orson Welles, 1947) - 3.5 out of 5 (might need a partial re-watch)
This is a fucking dream.
And is co-scoring with T-Bone Burnett who is also the executive music producer for the movie! … Nobody else excited for T-Bone? He’s worked heavily with the Coen Brothers! … Anyone?
