300 – LitFlix

I have finally read the graphic novel, 300, to compare to the movie. I had done so with intention of comparing to the new movie, 300: Rise of an Empire. A sequel which has no foundation in the graphic novel I read. A sequel which is not receiving the best of reviews.

Okay, so actually maybe the worst. Or there was this written review over on the Mary Sue: http://www.themarysue.com/300-rise-of-an-empire-review/

So Holly and I have decided, especially with how many movies there are coming out this month, we have better things to do with our time than see 300: Rise of an Empire in theaters. Maybe we’ll rent it later on and I can weigh in? For now, how about some comparison of film and graphic novel? On to 300!

Comics LitFlix 2014

In 2013 we had fun doing LitFlix, reading the books or comics that had to go with the movies. I’m going to continue that on into this year, with whole new offerings to go from!

The ones that are part of a larger comic universe are harder to plan for: they have to work off of the content from the movies, as well as any comic inspiration. So, I’ll be putting together what I can for those, reading inspirations, and seeing what I can do!

I’ve got trailers to follow for the ones that have trailers, and, like last year, I’m listing what I have found for reading these materials – so you can read along too for the movies!

Supplemental LitFlix 2013

So as Holly and I were pulling together her pretty busy year in our last post, I kept asking about the comic movies, because there’s something to read and consider and compare there, too. Looking at how many movies we are expecting from books this year, I will have to agree with her: she’s got her work cut out for her.

So I’ll pretend to be helpful and read the comics for the comics-to-movies this year. Check out my plans below the fold! Continue reading
