I like adaptations.
Purists who worship at the feet of their pop culture idols are already damning me to hell for blaspheming. Yes, I’ve just suggested that a reinterpretation of fandom’s holy, untouchable, absolutely godlike favourite franchise translated from one medium to another may not be a terrible thing after all.
I’m not making a sweeping statement of any sort here to say that I am completely on the side of Hollywood’s favourite past-time, the ripoff – er, I mean, the humble adaptation. I just want to be rational about why I think they are not exactly a travesty.
My mum tells me that the way to get things done is to simply do it. No thinking about how daunting it is or who will think what of it, “That’s totally nonsense!” she expresses, in a way best emphasized by the accompanying beheading of a chicken corpse.
So I’m being a filial daughter and listening to my wise mumma, noting on webspace the things I like because I would just like to write about something. While these are not formal reviews where plots are talked about in summary or detail, I am just sharing what appeals to me or doesn’t. Books; gadgets; TV; food; more past the jump.
