Book-to-film adaptations. You either love them, or you hate them. You’ve got masterpieces like ‘Catching Fire’, and then you’ve got headaches like ‘The Mortal Instruments’. In this episode, we take time to share our thoughts on book-to-film adaptations. What makes a good adaptation? What makes a bad one? We share a few experiences concerning our favorite adaptations and learn that getting into a premiere screening is harder than you think… and that Saul says “adaptions” over “adaptations.”

Also discussed in this episode…

  • The Last Star, the title of the third 5th Wave book was leaked!
    • What/who is the Last Star?
  • Veronica Roth shares her review of ‘Insurgent’
    • Everyone is worried about “the box.”
