How to Set Realistic Expectations for Movie & Netflix Adaptions…Yes I am talking about Six of Crows

Netflix is officially making The Grisha Trilogy and Six of Crows into a show!

I’m sure you and I are feeling similarly: extreme excitement followed by a lot of doubts and instantly loosing all hope.

I’ve been seeing a lot of people saying that if they get this wrong it’ll ruin the series…and then listing everything they want from the show. Exact storylines, casting right out of your imagination and a million episodes.

I’ve also seen people who aren’t excited at all and keep telling everyone to tone it down – how could it be that good??

I take problems with both sides. Here’s why, and also how to have realistic expectations for SoC:

I got to see Everything, Everything with my friend Tyr this past weekend, which is good because I was about to steal it from someone

I’ve been looking forward to this movies for a long time, for two reasons:

One: I really enjoyed the book! I liked the characters, and the drawings on the inside, and how most of it took place through texts.

Two: Both Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson will be in upcoming Book-to-Films (more on that later) so I was interested in their acting style.

Anne with an “E” | Show Review

Image result for Anne with an "E" poster

Anne with an “E” is a Netflix adaption of the classic, Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery.

I loved this book when I was younger – the best parts about it were Anne (who is so wonderfully creative and fanciful), her friendship with Diana, and the lightheartedness of the story, even though it had a darker background.

 

Since I love this series so much, I decided to watch this show…I will tell you up front, while I liked it (for the most part) it’s definitely a hit-or-miss adaption.

So if you’re up for hearing my thoughts on it, read on.
