Please welcome Annalisa Crawford, author of Cat and the Dreamer!
It's been a year since my novella Cat and The Dreamer was published! There have been lots of changes in my own life in that time, and I started to wonder what else had changed...
Thank you Livia for inviting me over today!
Today's topic: Film, of course!
Film?... Film?... As this is the last post of my blog tour, I'm going to cheat a little bit. I'm going to look backwards and forwards, because I didn't actually see much in the cinema at all in 2012, let alone films I thought were worthy of a blog post. I know there have been many noteworthy films out this year - drawing a range of opinion from my blogger friends - but the film that got me jumping up and down is due out this year.
In February I was completely unaware, but Hubby showed me this trailer in the summer.
If you're a Superman fan like me, I hope you'll agree that this is one of the most fascinating trailers for a Superman film. In fact I'm jumping up and down again now which is making it really hard to type!
As a child of the 70s Christopher Reeve will always be Superman to me. I love the original film so much. Brandon Routh did an amazing job of mimicking Reeve in the 2006 Superman Returns, but I didn't think the story had been thought through that well.
Man of Steel takes the story back to the beginning, Henry Cavill doesn't look like Christopher Reeve, and the whole feel of the trailer makes it seem much darker and realistic. I'm either going to think it's fantastic or the worst thing that's ever happened to cinema... I'm sure I'll blog about it though!
Are you looking forward to Man of Steel?
Are you looking forward to another 2013 film?
What 2012 film should I have watched?
Thank you Annalisa!
