Movie Ideas
« on: October 07, 2012, 01:00:39 AM »

Since the movie is likely nearing closer, I had some ideas
At the begining tally looks out her window while dreaming while playing cry by alexx claise
then have alll of the stuff where tally goes into pretty town and meets shay
when she is on her smoke journey that should mmove along a little faster and not so drawn out
and when david tells her she is beutiful play perfect by pink and crushed and created from make it or break it
these are just some from the top of my head
you are welcome to share some more ideas

Firework, by Katy Perry. Timing should be OBVIOUS.

And Eureka girl for Tally, and the song Me Against the World for Shay.

I think Dr.Cable should be played by that lady from the first Harry Potter movie, the flying instructor, I don't know her name as an actor or in the movie. She has hawk like features, and that is all I could picture the entire book.

That, and canon now has Cable looking like Dr. Halsey from Halo. They should get whoever they pick to play her.

I kind of like the flying teacher more though for Cable. She seemed more Cable.

I really don't think the movie could do this book justice unless it was super computer generated (like Avatar) or they got all they actors to have legit plastic surgery.  I don't think heavy make up is going to cut it.  Also, I'd want them to cast all unknown or lesser known actors/actresses for the bigger parts like Tally, Shay, David, and Zane, that way the movie will be about the story and not the actors.  I think HP was so much better cause no one knew who Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson were, and I thought Hunger Games lost something by casting Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawerence (who I believe was grossly miscast as Katniss, she's too old and not skinny/flat chested enough).

I thought she played Katniss really well. It was weird to see her at first because we all have our own images of what the character looks like, but in the end she pulled it off.

With the music, I think using pop songs is cheesy in the movie. With the seriousness of the book, and having the characters be people we haven't heard of before, it would be more appropriate to use orchestral music because it would be new songs people havent heard. Just like in Transformers, Batman, or really mostly every movie.  For example, here is one track from transformers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4xyYef5k6o&list=PL4CA5DDF7DE2E4245

If you just imagine Tally making her journey to the smoke and having it show the scenery in a majestic way..or having the movie be in slow motion when tally is fighting off the specials at the smoke trying so hard to get away and help. I just think it would be amazing.

I have too! Ever since I read the book the first time my mind was blown, and then continued to think of ideas for a movie. But having it go straight to the cat-puke sunrise would be perfect. I'm sure everyone who read the book and then saw that would start smiling to themselves. Haha

I just can't wait until casting calls. I'm definitely going to go out of my way to try out for Tally or Shay.

If your profile picture is you, you've got a shot at Tally.
