A look at movies, especially films based on books (Yes that includes comics); Opinions, facts, movie charts, production news and, when possible a look at the movies VS their source material. I may also champion books I've read that really should be movies. I've also used it to display the unedited versions of my blogs for SyFy; (The sci-fi channel UK website.)Feel free to let me know about any stories that you think deserve the big screen treatment.

Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Pt II; Two new clips & a featurette.
Well there’s no doubting what literary adaptation the most people have been looking forward to the most this summer, THE SMURFS! No? Ok then HP7Pt2. The eighth and final film in the ridiculously successful film series, based on the stupendously successful books, finally arrives around the globe in converted 3D on the 15th of July. The film series may have been steadily losing ticket sales, but the only two people allowed to feel disappointed with box office takings in the $900m range are James Cameron and Captain Jack Sparrow. Nobody is expecting anything but $1b plus from this movie, even if it isn’t very good (Which seems unlikely given the dramatic and action packed nature of the second half of the book); Potter fans will see to that.
There were two new clips released yesterday pertaining to two of the key Horcrux hunting / destroying sequences. There's also the featurette from a few days ago added for good measure.
In this clip Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) enter The Chamber of Secrets (Harry talks in his sleep you know)
This clip shows us the gang searching for a Horcrux in Bellatrix Lestrange's(Helena Bonham Carter) vault at Gringotts. The trap is sprung and, well you probably know. If you don’t, you’ll see when you watch the clip...
