This Week on Thursday's Picks: I Am Number Four, Get Low and Darkest Mercy
I can't even tell you guys how excited I am for this movie. I know that movies based on books have a tendency to leave something to be desired for fans of the book. Case in point, Percy Jackson. Fun book series, stupid movie that had almost nothing to do with the actual book. I'm extremely hopeful for I Am Number Four, in spite of that. The trailers all look amazing, and I have nothing but good things to say about the casting. I mean, Alex Pettyfer and Timothy Olyphant in the same movie?! The only thing that would make that better is a cameo from Robert Downey Jr. My heart would literally explode. It's not often that I go to the theater on opening day, but I've already made it clear to Mr. TLL that I will be in that theater Friday. It's going down. See the trailer below and you'll be there too.
I have been bouncing in my seat waiting for this book. An ARC is on it's way for me to review and I'm stalking the mailbox for it to come. The mailman thinks I'm in love with him. I need this read this book as soon as possible. Melissa Marr is an incredible writer, and I haven't read a single thing she's written that I didn't absolutely love. I've fallen in love with her characters, and as sad as I am that the Wicked Lovely series is coming to a close, I can't wait to see how it all ends. Book trailer is below.
This movie sounds pretty awesome. I love a good crime drama/mystery, and you really can't go wrong with this cast. The acting firepower is undeniable. I mean, the casting director for this movie should get an award for having an awesome brain. The only thing I'm not too excited about is Lucas Black, who's acting can be compared to the skills of a wet mop. Ugh. Now check out this trailer and tell me you don't want to pick this DVD up on Tuesday.
