Based on the latest trailer, Artemis Fowl looks like the next great fantasy adaptation to hit the silver screen.
Fans of other teen tearjerkers like The Fault In Our Stars and anything in the Nicholas Sparks oeuvre will find plenty to enjoy in Five Feet Apart.
Though written with ages 9 -12 in mind, UK author S.F. Said's new graphic novel Phoenix has been one of my best reading experiences this year. A science fiction story with amazing and real characters, dramatic action, a fascinating mythology and incredible artwork by Dave McKean, I can't recommend this enough to any readers either with children of said age in their life, or for themselves.
It's another big week of DVD/Blu-ray releases. This week Phil Brown takes a look at Steven Spielberg's big-screen adaptation of The Adventures Of Tintin, Lars Von Trier's crushing end of the world tale Melancholia, Jason Reitman's dark comedy Young Adult, HBO's Game of Thrones Season One box set, and more!
Sometimes movies take themselves far too seriously for their own good. Writers will come up with ridiculous premises that directors play a bit too straight in hopes that the film ends up saying something meaningful about the human condition. Young Adult is one such film.
