As far as I know, the movies not a solid deal.

Scrips not even been finalised beyond the rough rough draft. I think they're going to wait till the Hunger Games hype dies down.

Another 3 years and by then we'll have the Mortal Interments hype.

URG. Still can't believe they're making THAT and not Mortal Engines. ARG.
Oh, and World War Z is a movie now to. YESH.

I need to read that some time. . . I have to get some more zombie action.

You like zombies then? Very cool. World War Z is one of the better zombie books because it actually shows before, during, and after the uprising of the dead. That, and it really IS World War Z. It covers the undead fighting in every continent, and above it even (they mention the crew of the ISS)

Yes, I like them, Read Zombies vs Unicorns, watch the Walking Dead(Behind on this season) been surrounded by Resident Evil  because of my bros, Been hit on by a zombie before and listen to too many zombie themed songs around Halloween.

In case you're wondering, both the food and the tv were awesome, and why did I put my above post in ()s? I'll blame it on too many rps.

Don't care much myself.

*Shrug* Don't care that you don't care.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 02:26:37 PM
Woo for not caring.
Same as I don't care that the Uglies movie won't come for a bit. I'm surprised the idea of it being a movie came around AT ALL...
But then again they made Diary of a Wimpy Kid into one...I remember when that things a friggin' flash comic on Funbrain.com.

I read the first one for extra credit once, don't get how it captured the minds and admiration of children to the degree it did.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 02:32:56 PM
It wasn't incredible. Still isn't. But, I was in 6th grade when I first read it and it was updated pretty reguarly, and the school computers didn't really have access to much else.

It reminded me a lot of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian a lot.

Cept ATDOAPTI was a lot better. Alexi didn't cut out the good stuff.
I met him, Alexi. Great guy, funny as hell. He lives in South Lake Union, so he does a lot of talks around here.
Met the guy who did Diary too actually. He was an asshole. As are all his fans, most of whom were FAR younger than Greg...

God Straif you've met a lot of authors!!!! *Seething with jealousy*

Helps that I live in Seattle. We're very big on books here. Lots of standard and used bookstores.
Yes, Fanna, yes they do.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Luna Lovegood on November 10, 2012, 02:49:59 PM
Really Fanna? You thought Wimpy kid was really funny? Maybe i should evaluate my sense of humor or should have gone to real school. . .

Still, Lucky, wish we were big on that stuff here, here we're all into sports.  :P

You are, however, closer to most of the people on the forum. As opposed to me, out in the middle of nowhere people-wise...

Greg's in middle school yes, so 11+. I wanna say 13. Let me check real quick...(I have sevearl of the books)...
Just says middle school.

My school was tiny to say the least, and if you want to know more pm me. I don't care to talk about my before college education that much.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 02:55:54 PM
Not much to talk about with mine. It was lame. My college has been pretty damn lame too.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Luna Lovegood on November 10, 2012, 02:57:26 PM
As long as you have friends to hang with it's cool.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Luna Lovegood on November 10, 2012, 02:59:23 PM
my before college was made awesome because of the field trips and my bff. No other reason.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 03:00:10 PM
Me? Friends? NOPE. Not before college, certainly not DURING college...and probably not any after.

I don't watch TV anymore. Nothing good on. I'd rather use it to play Halo.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Luna Lovegood on November 10, 2012, 03:03:53 PM
Awesome Fanna!!!!!

And Straif, you sadden me. 
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 03:04:46 PM
Yeah, well big friggin' surprise there, I seem to sadden EVERYONE around me recently. Never shoulda stayed up to play Halo 4 in one sitting. Ever since then it's been downhill.

Uh, maybe you need some sleep, you sound very grumpy.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 03:06:11 PM
Probably.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Luna Lovegood on November 10, 2012, 03:11:57 PM
Sure, what are you getting on for?
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Straif on November 10, 2012, 03:20:18 PM
Well then.
Title: Re: The movie?
Post by: Luna Lovegood on November 10, 2012, 03:25:42 PM
Should have looked at this before I pmed you that other stuff -_-
