The Anthony Trollope Collection

 

I just found this at Amazon and I’m pretty excited about it.  The Anthony Trollope Collection by the BBC is a 6-DVD set.   The set contains  The Barchester Chronicles (an adaptation of the first two Barchester novels, The Warden and Barchester Towers), He Knew He Was Right  and  The Way We Live Now.  I only wish I already had ordered this.  It would be perfect for a lazy, Sunday afternoon.

She well knew the great architectural secret of decorating her constructions, and never condescended to construct a decoration. ~ Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope

War of the Worlds

The War of the Worlds,  by H. G. Wells, was written between 1895 and 1897.   It was first serialized in 1897 and was published in hardcover the next year.

I wasn’t aware of this but the 1953 version of War of the Worlds, based on the H. G. Wells book of the same name,  was re-released in 2005.   Gene Barry.  Ann Robinson.  Byron Haskin. All I need is some popcorn and I’m set!

A new movie about the most famous star-crossed lovers is coming to the UK and the US.  Romeo & Juliet has a release date of October 11, 2013 in both countries.  As you can see by the below trailer, the movie is lush with wonderful production values. However the film has caused a controversy as the dialogue isn’t true to the work of William Shakespeare. Julian Fellowes, of Downton Abbey fame, is credited as the writer.

Shakespeare Plus Terminator Equals a Potent Mixture!

Mind boggling! Husky Jackal Theater presents a recreation of Terminator 2: Judgement Day done entirely with text taken from the works of William Shakespeare. They allowed themselves minor changes to include proper nouns, like Skynet, and a few other minor changes. As strange as this pairing sounds, it seems to work. In fact, it seems to be something quite powerful.

AustenlandHave you heard about Austenland?  Shannon Hale, primarily known for her young adult titles, gives us the tale of a woman so enamored of the the BBC’s version of Pride and Prejudice that it’s hindering her own hunt for Mr. Right.  (Or should we call him Mr. Darcy?)   At any rate, the 2008 novel has been made into a movie.  The film hasn’t been released yet, but it’s showing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

There’s no trailer available, but here’s a hilarious story about the making of the movie from Shannon Hale:

This Friday (November 16th) a movie adaptation of Anna Karenina opens in limited release in the United States. As you can see by the below trailer, the movie is a lush period piece.

I’ve never read the book so I looked for the Kindle version of Anna Karenina at Amazon. I’m not sure how long it will be at this price, but I see that it’s free today.
