This is gonna be a post all about movies. Movies I wanna watch, movies I have watched recently, upcoming movies, the whole shibang. I know this is a book blog, but I need a place to just vent out all of this, and share it. So if you have a problem with this minor excursion, Sorry. Anyhow, some of these movies are based on the particular books, so...
Hey, maybe Marvel and I could also open a movies blog. How 'bout it, Marvel? I can just see her eyes rolling in exasperation as she reads this. Oh, and while you're reading this, Marvel, thanks for calling back "ASAP". How long does it take to put away groceries???
Let's start with the movies I want to watch.
The Lightning Thief, based on the spectacular novel in the spectacular series Percy Jackson and the Olympians by the spectacular author Rick Riordan.
Coming out March 5, 2010, is
Alice in Wonderland-
Johnny Depp(Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean) plays as the Mad Hatter,
and Anne Hathaway, who plays Ella in Ella Enchanted, plays as the White Queen.
In addition, Alan Rickman, who plays Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies is playing as the
