As much as I don’t like films, I especially hate ones that are books-turned movies or god-forbid games-turned movies. The former often adds what the producer thinks would be cool - often completely ignoring what the original was about (HTTYD suffered from a complete change in direction from the original How to Train… books, like making Toothless look cool instead of being near-useless, a midget, and common - and so on).  FFVII’s film was mostly a sequel to the game itself and wasn’t a film adaption of the actual game, so they could get away with that. And it was SquareEnix doing most of the directing and such, so it wasn’t like some random company got to screw around with their game to suit their own tastes.
*edit*  Possibly the only book/game to movie thing that Square has done that SUCKED was “Final Fantasy Unlimited”.  Everything else was great.
.
Regardless, I was never a fan of The Hobbit to begin with (Despite or maybe because of my father reading the trilogy to me each night as I went to bed for the first four or five years of my life), and movies just don’t hold much interest to me anymore. Rarely anyway.

Anywayz. Just ordered the book I need for my Accounting class, and ordered myself a King Ghidora plush as a treat =3
Don’t much care for the Godzilla serfies, but hydra plushes are rare it seems, and it was so cute~

I love movies and we try to catch as many as possible. The only downfall to books made movie is they tend to leave out the little details that help explain a point. Always drives me nuts. The Harry Potter films were that way. Fantastic movies but left out a lot of little details.

I just finished reading the first HP book.  I might see if I can find the chambers of secrets while at the library.

Granddaughter#1 read the Potter books so many times that she has them memorized.  The books themselves are quite tattered.  I read them too.  She sat there at the movies and gave her dad a running critique.  They left out this, that wasni’t done right, that’s not what he said, where’s the ...

There’s supposed to be an Artemis Fowl film coming out eventually.  I’m a bit worried about this because apparently, the studio or whatever that took up the task of making it didn’t think about having the author direct it and spent almost a year or two looking for someone else without ever asking him (Red Flag). That and it’s going to be live-action, akin to the HarryPotter films (Another Red Flag, for me anyway). Not looking forward to the Troll scene in live action, but the Time-Stop spell scene should be cool enough.
.
I loved the books, but don’t know if I’ll like the film at all. I did enjoy the graphic novel though.

Also Nightwish is making a movie, and they have the trailer ready to watch. Live action as well, so I dunno. (NOT a fan of live-action.)

Cuteness, is called Axolotl. And because of rude hoomanz destroying their marshy/swampy homes, they are now endangered in the wild (But very common in pet stores).

Not the full truth, the poor little fellows old homes are still there. The hoomanz pollution has made their homes unlivable. They were very common in Lakes, Rivers and streams not just swampy areas. Even the real live ones are cute to me. See…

WHAT????? *faints* Me must see, whatever it is!

Also, never big fan of anything-into-movie myself. I had no huge objections, just minor ones - until Les rivières pourpres, The Crimson Rivers that is. The movie seemed quite good, until I’ve finally managed to read the book by Jean-Christophe Grangé. The book is simply brilliant when compared to poor, silly movie. Actually the movie looked like the book stuffed into meat mincer but that’s just my humble opinion wink Since then I’m quite critical and really, totally hate some movie series - like Resident Evil for example. Yuck.

@Jaderail:  Same thing.  Polluted and disgusting = Destroyed in my book.  If it can no longer properly support the ecology it once did because of humans or indirectly because of humans, it’s been destroyed or in the process of being destroyed.  You don’t need to drain a marsh and then build a shopping center on it for it to qualify as destroyed in my view.

Movie’s called Imaginaerum, after their album of the same name.  They renamed it from Imaginarium.

But some forms of pollution can be cleaned, and in some cases, the ecosystem rebuilt. I know that this can be done, because my deceased father-in-law worked in chemistry department of my local university as a research professor and lecturer (focus on environmental toxics), and thanks to his and his colleagues’ effort, the lake nearby is again teeming with fish and life, and it is once more safe to swim in it, even eat fish caught from it.

@Rezca; I was just expanding on the problem the little guy faces. Some folks might not know they live in rivers and lakes also. You only mentioned swampy areas. The plight of the South American rivers in populated areas is worse than when that river in New York caught on fire. Humans are the only animal that will pollute it’s on nest. And we do not seem to care for the most part. It’s a real shame.

Well some stuff came up and it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to afford the upgrade to Studio ;__;

Oh well.  In the mean time I’ve installed the Vue xStream PLE and am going to have a spin with that, see if I can get some stuff working or not. At the very least it should help me bridge the two applications, making it easier to set stuff up before sending it into Vue for rendering, or rendering it with my app.
