Most of us read The Giver in middle school and were avid fans from the beginning. For years, Generation Y has been asking, “Where’s our movie adaptation?” “Why haven’t they made it into a film yet?” “This would look amazing on screen!” Finally, after 20 years since its publication, Lois Lowry’s beloved dystopian novel The Giver is being made into a major motion picture.

It was announced recently that Season 7 of HBO’s mega hit True Blood would be its last. Me and my fellow ‘truebies,’ one of the clever monikers for fans of the show, have been faithfully following the series every summer for six seasons now, and I know I am not alone in my love for the town of Bon Temps, Louisiana and all of its supernatural residents. Upon hearing that we only have one more summer to slip into the fantasy world of Bon Temps, I found myself going in a state of bewilderment. Join me as I recollect my journey through the five stages of grief and know that you are not alone on this journey: Continue reading

I’ve been completely obsessed with vampires for over half my life now. Granted, it has cooled down some in the wake of the recent onslaught of vampire-related media, but I still get excited any time a new project gets mentioned. Case in point is NBC’s new Dracula series, scheduled to come out this fall.
I’m not a huge fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who will be playing Dracula in the show, but I’m sure if his The Tudors performance is any indication that his Dracula will be both seductive and terrifying. In spite of Meyers’s presence, I’m definitely willing to give the show a shot. While the summary on NBC’s website sounds mostly like the original Bram Stoker novel, there are intriguing hints about electricity, the “new technology” that could give the show an additional push.
Dracula is, obviously, the king of all vampires, but after years of devouring practically everything vampire, there are quite a few others to whom I’m partial. Given that Dracula will be just the latest in a long line of vampire television shows, here’s a list of my personal top five vampires on the small screen. Continue reading
Disconnect, directed by Henry Alex Rubin, provides a peek into the consequences of today’s technology-prone world. An intense and dramatic interpretation of media culture, Disconnect consists of several stories and subplots, much like the 2004 film Crash directed by Paul Haggis. Unlike Crash, however, Disconnect follows various subplots; those of which never seem to intertwine at any point in the story other than through the theme of disconnecting. The audience is introduced to three extreme cases including cyber-bullying, identity theft, and a breaking news story, all of which have some correlation to online activity. The film often suggests that our lives online determines our lives offline in a very vital way. Continue reading
