LitFlix 2015

So another year another season of LitFlix. Even though these do not necessarily get the most views I still really enjoy doing them so we are going to continue in the tradition. Now this year there will be a few changes to the LitFlix with the change in our family dynamic coming soon. For one thing it is just not feasible to see all the movies in the theatre. This means that we are going to move more of the LitFlix to be based on rental times instead of the theatre release (although here I will still list theatre release as that is the dates that we have). The other thing is that just because there is a movie based on a book does not mean I am going to do a LitFlix on it (Fifty Shades of Grey). So without further ado here are the movies based on books that I will be diving in to, three of which are continuations in a series. I have heard about other movies that are supposed to be released, but until there is an official date I am holding off on adding them. Are there any other movie / book adaptations that you think I should take a look at?

  3. Isn’t there a new Frankenstein adaptation coming in the fall?

    • I looked at that and from things I read it is more of telling the story from a different perspective then telling the story. The movie is Victor Frankenstein and told from the perspective of Igor. I will probably rent because it is Daniel Radcliffe as Igor and James McAvoy as Frankenstein.
