If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a big fan of books and TV. Well I’m also a big fan of movies, especially seeing movies in the theater with my friend Laura while eating lots of buttered popcorn. We like to spend time after the movie (while wandering around Barnes and Noble usually) passing judgment on the movie and discussing changes we would have made had we been the casting directors.
Because we enjoy this so much, and because we think we’re so good at it, we decided to start a blog!
Here for the Popcorn was formed during yet another long conversation via gchat (we live 700 miles apart) about The Hunger Games casting. We often recast book-to-movie adaptations together, combing through IMDB to find better looking (and sometimes better acting) actors to play the roles the way we envisioned in our heads while reading the book.
Our blog is set to be full of our trademark wit and sarcasm as we judge our way through book-to-movie adaptations, book-to-TV adaptations, movie-to-TV adaptations, and well, you get the idea.
So if you like movies and/or books (or me!), pop by our new blog and join the conversation. Feel free to leave us a comment (we promise not to judge you) or drop us a note telling us what you think or what you would like to see in the future. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter!
