First Freebie Finished.
Funny people should mention the film after my review of the book but I did buy the DVD. Halfway through the book I decided to get it even though I hadn't yet seen it. I did enjoy it but so much of it was different from the book (as is usual with things like this). I can understand the changes though. The basic storyline was the same but changes had to be made to some of the events in order for it to work on film. Also quite a lot of the book was cut out. While it flowed well in the book I don't think it would have worked well on film so again I can understand it. Kim I think you would really enjoy the book if you liked the film. Would be interested in hearing what you thought of it and the differences between the two. Zohrah, I have read "Angela's Ashes" and even the follow up "Tis". I enjoyed them both but never felt the urge to watch the film adaption or to read the third book (I think it was called "Teacher").
I am also very excited as I just discovered that Battlestar Galactica season 2 will be released here in the UK in August. I have actually pre ordered it. I just finished watching season1 a second time round and still enjoyed it. Looking forward to 2 as it is meant to be longer and better.
Bastet, I am glad you are finally getting to see the first series of new Dr Who. Are you enjoying it? We have just finished another double episode in season 2 and it was a good one. Please don't let my problems with Hardanger put you off. It was my own silly mistakes and I didn't have a problem until then. The black one is going well but slowly. I can only stitch it in daylight for a short length of time before I start going cross-eyed.
I've seen the movie "Angela's ashes", it's quite good, but hard. Haven't read the book.
I too cut where I'm not supposed to in hardhanger sometimes, but hey, we can't be perfect all the time ;)
Love getting all the movie and book reviews too, both in blogs and comments. :D I made a note to check my library for The Constant Princess.
If you liked S1 Battlestar you will LOVE S2. It's great, but I think you will be SHOCKED at the ending. ;)
I liked Underworld Evolution, but I wish I had watched the first one again prior to viewing. I had forgotten some important plot points. I would consider these movies more action oriented with a vampire subplot. That aside it was an interesting premise. I just hope they don't try for #3. ;)
Also, loved the hardanger you did! What beautiful thread colors!! Are they overdyeds and where can I get them!? *big grin* LOL
Have a great day!
