Trailer: Wonder


 When I read Wonder early last year, it stayed with me so much that it ended being one of my favorite books of the year. The story of the book was very ripe for an adaptation, and this has now become one of my most awaited for the year. Jacob Tremblay was fantastic in Room, and I have a feeling that this would be really good.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.

The Net

If you’re looking for an uneven movie about computer programs, murders, and dated computers, look no further than 1995’s The Net – or another movie that sounds similar to this but isn’t The Net. This sums up much of my thoughts about the movie but when I ended up sitting through the whole ordeal thinking ‘it’s not so terrible but still really bland’, why not write about it?
