Book To Movie/TV Adaptations I Want To Watch! 📚 Blogtober #9

Today I want to talk about some book to movie adaptations that I want to read. A lot of these have been out for a while but somehow I still haven’t watched them!

1. The Hate U Give

I loved The Hate U Give and have actually read is three times now but I am still yet to watch the movie! I’m sure it’s amazing and it’s definitely high on my priority.

2. Love, Simon

Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda was really good & I have been meaning to watch the movie for ages but just haven’t gotten there yet!

3. The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds is another I have read more than once but still haven’t watched the movie. I feel like this one kinda fell under the radar and wasn’t overly hyped. I hoping it will be awesome though!

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one that I am worried about. I know that they made some major changes regarding the abilities of two of the characters, so this has always kind of put me off. I am curious to give it ago though and hopefully it is still a fun movie even if it isn’t accurate to the book.

5. Escape From Mr Lemoncello’s Library

I only found out a couple weeks ago that there is a Show for Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library but I am so keen! This is such a fun book and I hope the movie will be just as fun. Also this is technically a TV show but there is only 1 episode and thats over an hour and it covers everything that happens in book 1. So I’m not sure why it just isn’t a movie 🤷🏻‍♀️

6. The Book Thief

Another one I’m really not sure why I haven’t read yet. I read The Book Thief a few years ago and really enjoyed it but just haven’t watched the movie yet.

7. The 5th Wave

I haven’t actually read the book for this one but it is a book to movie adaptations so it counts! The 5th Wave was on my TBR but I just haven’t gotten to it yet but I have seen the trailer for the movie and it looks interesting so I’m curious!

8. Howl’s Moving Castle

This is another one I haven’t actually read the book of but I hear SO MUCH hype around the Howl’s Moving Castle movie so I want to give it a go!

Let’s Chat!

Do you recommend any of these? Which one should I watch first?!

Shows on Netflix I’m keen for!

Today we will be chatting about the Netflix Shows I am keen for! Some of these are completely new to me shows whereas others I’m keen to continue with new seasons out. So let’s jump in!

Shows with new seasons I’m keen for!

The 100

Starting off the list we have The 100! I have watched Seasons 1 & 2 of The 100 and really enjoyed it. At the time those were the only seasons out so I’m definitely behind on catching up on this show. This will likely be the next one I jump into after my currently watching which I’ll talk about soon.

Lucifer

This is my current watch and I am loving it! I did watch Season 1 a fair while back but now there is 5 seasons so I’m in the process of catching up. I’m currently on Season 3 Episode 4. Making progress but still a fair while to go.

The OA

I have watched Part 1 of The OA but only realised a couple days ago that there is now a Part 2. So I’m now keen to get to Part 2. This was a super weird show but also very interesting so I’m definitely keen!

Travelers

This is a super interesting show and I’m so excited that there is new seasons to get into. I’ve watched Season 1 and there is now 3 seasons so plenty more to get to.

Van Helsing

This is another one I didn’t realise there was new seasons out and recently. I watched Season 1 just after it came out and there is now 4 seasons. So another one I need to catch up on soon!

Shows that I’m waiting for more seasons to release!

The Witcher

My partner and I watched Season 1 a couple months ago and really enjoyed it so we are both super keen for Season 2 to be released in December.

New to me shows that look interested!

All of these look really good and I’m keen to give them ago. Both The Shannara Chronicles and Cursed are based off books so that’s cool too! I am going to try and read Cursed before watching the show but I’m not too interested in reading The Shannara Chronicles books so I’ll probably just jump straight into the show.

Let’s Chat!

Give me some recommendations for shows on Netflix that you think I would like! I would love to hear your thoughts on the shows I haven’t started as well. Should I prioritise any of them??

Van Helsing (Season 1) – Mini Spoiler Free TV Series Review

screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-12-09-25-am

So, my second tv show review! Still figuring this out and I still don’t know if it’s something that I will continue to do on my blog or not. We will see! So I finished watching Van Helsing on Netflix about an hour ago, so here is my review. I will try and keep it spoiler free.


Van Helsing Season 1 (13 Episodes)

IMBD Synopsis:

Vanessa Helsing, distant relative of famous vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, is resurrected only to find that vampires have taken over the world.

cast_banner_vanhelsing

Plot:

This is TV show is a Dystopian/Apocalypse show. This plot has been really good! There is a lot going on and I love the world they are creating in this story! I want to know more! Towards the end we find out something and I want to know more! It ended on a cliffhanger so I hope they do actually make a second season!

01-van-helsing-tv-series-2016

Actors/Characters:

I really like Vanessa as a character and I love how she is portrayed by her actor! Love a strong female character! Axel, Mohamad and Susan are the other characters  that I really enjoy as well! From the start I didn’t really like Doc or Sam as a character, but I let you find out how they turn out in the end! No spoilers here!

vanhelsing

Overall:

Really enjoying this series! I’m keen for season 2 to come out, they have a season 2 on IMBD, but there is no information about it, so we will see!

Any suggestions for what I should watch next!?!

Tv Series Review – Travelers Season 1

screen-shot-2017-02-03-at-9-22-29-pm

My first TV series review! So I’m not 100% sure how to go about this as it’s a bit different to writing book reviews where I break it down into writing, characters & plot.. So for TV shows I think I’m going to break it down into Actors/Characters & Plot and maybe in the next review I might add more, or I might even add more as I go.. We will just see what happens!

This won’t be spoiler free, I’ll be talking about the characters and who they are at the start but that is all.. However if you want to go into this show knowing nothing, then turn back now!!


Travelers Season 1 (12 episodes)

IMBD synopsis:

Hundreds of years from now, surviving humans discover how to send consciousness back through time, into people of the 21st century, while attempting to save humanity from a terrible future.

travelers

Okay, so first I will break it down a bit so you know who I’m talking about here.

Going by the image above:

On the left we have David Mailer played by Patrick Gilmore, Next is Marcy Warton played by MacKenzie Porter, then Grant MacLaren played by Eric McCormack, Trevor Holden played by Jared Abrahamson, Carly Shannon played by Nesta Cooper & lastly Philip Pearson played by Reilly Dolman.

So, as it said in the IMBD synopsis they have learnt how to send consciousness back in time to another body. Marcy, Grant, Trevor, Carly & Philip are all examples of this.. David is a normal person in his own time and he knew the Marcy from before the new consciousness took over her body. As it is against the rules to tell other people about who they actually are Marcy avoids the truth with him, but in her case it’s kinda hard not to notice something has changed (watch it and you will figure it out).

Characters/Actors:

I didn’t have any issues with any of the actors, they all played their parts well and at no point was I think jesus christ this guy needs acting lessons, the whole time it felt real, well as real as a sci-fi fantasy can be! I think MacKenzie Porter is a great actor to have played 3 different forms of Marcy in the tv show, you will understand when you watch it. All the characters just went together nicely. There was some guys that I didn’t like, but that was the point, they were all bad people.

character-s01-jeff_conniker

Jeff Conniker (above) played by J. Alex Brinson was an example of a bad person, honestly he was a dick and I would have kicked him in the balls myself if I had been Carly! What did confuse me is that they call him Carly’s husband a few times in the show, yet they have different last names, I know that can be done, but it’s not a regular thing to see.. So I don’t know!

Plot:

I really liked the plot and the concept of this show! It’s so interesting and kinda different, not to send people back in time, but their consciousness! That is such an awesome idea and concept! I love that I was never bored watching this show, there was always something interesting on.  And it definitely had a cliffhanger at the end so I’m assuming there will be a season 2, but it will probably be a fair way away yet as this season only came out in December.

Well I don’t really know what else to say, so I’m going to wrap it up there! I did really enjoy this show, and for my first tv show review, I think I did pretty good. So that is all! Have you watched Travelers

Need Your Opinion!

screen-shot-2017-02-01-at-1-31-41-am

I’m thinking about starting to talk about movies & tv shows on my blog! But I just want your opinion! I love talking about books and I’m not going to stop anything that I already do on my blog, but I just want to add some stuff about movies & tv shows!

Recently I have been watching a lot of tv shows on Netflix rather than watching normal tv. So, I thought why not start writing about it on her!

So, for today I’m going to post a list of all tv shows I have watched!


On DVD

Two Broke Girls – Seasons 1 to 3

2bg-costume-designer-blog-image2

I love this show, and Max constantly reminds me of what I wish I could say to customers!! Absolutely hilarious!

5

Mrs Browns Boys – Seasons 1 to 3, Mammy’s Tickled Pink & Mammy’s Gamble, Crackin’ Christmas & Mrs Browns Boys Live

p01l6dhm

LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Absolutely hilarious!!

5

On Netflix

Supernatural – Seasons 1 to 9

supernatural

I love this tv show, it’s just amazing! I really need to get to season 10, 11 and now 12 as well!

5

The 100 – Seasons 1 & 2

the-100-new-header

I really enjoyed this series! It’s so different and interesting! I watched season 1 on Netflix and wanted more! I knew there was a season 2, but it wasn’t available on Netflix yet, so instead of waiting I watched online for free. Really want to read the books, but they aren’t high on the priority list at the moment, but I hope to get to them eventually!

5

Lost – Seasons 1 to 6

lost-season1

This show is so weird! But I did enjoy it. At the start it was really good, interesting and confusing, but after a while it was kinda repetitive and wasn’t as good!

4

Shadowhunters – Seasons 1 & 2

shadowhunters

I really like this show, like more than the books.. I read the first and second book, the first book was good, but the second book was kinda boring!

The OA – Season 1 (my most recently watched, finished it earlier tonight)

1481614058_oa

The OA was very odd, but also very interesting! I still don’t 100% know what is going on, but I am enjoying it. It ended on such a cliffhanger! I really hope that they get seasons 2 out soon, but I haven’t found any official dates of when it’s meant to come back but according to a couple articles i read the producers have said that there will be a season 2! Keen

4-and-a-half

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air – Seasons 1 to 6

the-fresh-prince-of-bel-air

Again, I love this show! Really wish they kept going with this show and it literally made me cry at the end when everyone was leaving!!

5

That 70s Show – Seasons 1 to 8

wallpaper-that-70s-show-32444005-1920-1080

I had basically watched every episode on tv over the years anyway, but I decided to watch it all in order and I love this show and would watch it again and still laugh every time!

Orange is the New Black – Season 1 to 4

1466885912-1466451898-orange-is-the-new-black-cast-1

I need the next season already ! I watched season 4 in one day when it was released on Netflix! Absolutely love this!

5

A Series of Unfortunate Events – Season 1

mv5bmtuxmjizodi0nv5bml5banbnxkftztgwmdk3oti2mdi-_v1_uy268_cr30182268_al_

This was basically the same as the movie until towards the end where they go further than the movie goes. I really enjoyed it and I don’t know if they are doing more.. I haven’t read the books, so I don’t know how much of the series this covered and whether or not that is all.. So I will see!

4-and-a-half

The Originals – Seasons 1 & 2

the-originals-season-3

I enjoyed this show and I really need to get to season 3, but as it’s not on Netflix I didn’t watch it at the same time as the rest of the series. However I did download it off the internet and will get to it eventually!

4-and-a-half

Currently Watching on Netflix

Travelers

Well, it’s 1:30 am and I have just finished episode 2 of this, very interesting so far! I won’t say much as this will hopefully be my first tv show review on my blog, depending on how people like me talking about movies and tv shows on my blog!


Well, that is all! I think 3 posts in one day is my limit! Going to sleep (who am I kidding, I’m going to lay in bed and read)!
