    John Green’s New Moon Review

    03.12.09 | Permalink | Comments Off on John Green’s New Moon Review

    John Green, author of Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns and An Abundance of Katherines, recently went to see New Moon and had some opinions about it, some of them good, some bad, and some quite amusing (with a nice mention of Taylor Lautner at the end, we noticed. V.). Here’s the clip:


    Here it is in its natural habitat, and you can read more of his opinions on Stephenie Meyer at his blog, here. Both Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska are being made into movies (incidentally).

    Review New Moon for us! There’s another poster in it

    20.11.09 | Permalink | 4 Comments

    Exams? What exams?

    As with the lovely Taylor Lautner posters, we’ve got another New Moon movie poster that we thought we’d give to the first person who tells us what they thought of New Moon (which we think some of you might have seen already). As usual, the catch is you have to review it in haiku form (explanation here again). Eligible only for WCL YA cardholders. Please add your full name [we won’t publish it]. The poster has folds in it again (sorry).

    I suppose the other catch for me is I should provide an example review haiku thing, so here goes:

    The movie begins…
    Love, tragedy, danger, then-
    “Put the shirt back on!”

    Write a haiku and maybe get a poster, if you’re quick

    The cast of the Twilight films lead the polls (the best actor, best actress, break out actor, best film, and some others) for the 2010 People’s Choice Awards. The People’s Choice awards are voted for by the public (well, the US public), hence their name. They are awards chosen by people, for the people.

    I have two posters of the potential 2010 winner of best break out actor (as chosen by some people), Taylor Lautner, to give away! As much as I’d like to have them I simply haven’t the space for any more. If you want one write a haiku (explained here) about Taylor in the comments below. There are only two posters so the first two haiku will get one!  Eligible only for WCL YA cardholders. Please add your full name [we won’t publish your name]. The posters have folds in them sorry.

    Taylor Lautner plays
    a werewolf in highschool. So
    did Michael J. Fox.

    Robert Pattinson Coming To NZ!

    Well, that is if reports like these two are to be trusted. Word is he’ll be starring in a film called Unbound Captives  alongside Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman that’ll be filmed right here. Regardless of whether or not the Twilight star’s 2010 working holiday will go ahead (it does look likely), the internet and local media seems to be rather lathered up about the prospect. I’m sure many of you will be too, I however can’t understand the excitement, It’s not as if Taylor Lautner is coming is it?

    Robert Pattinson’s face

    28.10.09 | Permalink | 6 Comments

    You can make Robert Pattinson’s face through the gentle art of cross-stitch, thanks to the Guardian online. Here are some books in the library on cross-stitch so that you can learn how to make your own fabric Edward. A good Christmas gift in these lean times. I’m hoping for a cross-stitched Taylor Lautner, as he’d make a great cushion.

    X-Men Origins : Wolverine is now in the library and ready to be reserved. If you want to watch it! You probably have seen it. It doesn’t have Taylor Lautner in it, so I might give it a miss.

    Here’s X-Men Origins : Wolverine in only 30 seconds, to save time.

    Gamers Rejoice II

    Judging from a website titled Ultramarines The Movie there is to be an Ultramarines movie. It seems a fair conclusion to reach. What are Ultramarines? Why, they’re genetically-modified super-soldiers in space, and part of the Warhammer 40k gaming universe. The movie probably won’t be out for a while, but once a trailer appears we will post it!

    While the library doesn’t have gaming, we do have a rulebook (for the Warhammer fantasy RPG); we also carry White Dwarf magazine, and we have some of the related novels (and here’s 5 good reasons why you should read them if you haven’t already).

    New New Moon

    15.09.09 | Permalink | Comments Off on New New Moon

    A new New Moon trailer was revealed last night. You can watch it here. This film seems like it will cover all the bases – romance, unrequited love, lots of action, werewolves, Taylor Lautner often shirtless, ancient Italian vampires, and Michael Sheen (OBE).
