Ok, am I the only one who remembers the Sarah Polley TV show of Ramona? I checked them out on VHS (so oldschool, I know) from my library and watched them as a kid. And I loved it. Sarah Polley was Ramona for me. So I'm still not sure I can bet behind this movie, but we'll see, maybe they'll surprise me. What do you think?
Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou
I read the books long before the TV series came out. While Sarah Polley was good, I never really felt that she looked the way Ramona was supposed to look (it was probably due to the bad wig). The casting in this new version looks pretty good... at least for Ramona. Beezus looks Hispanic! Oh, well.ReplyDelete
It looks like they captured some of the funny scenes in the books, too (like when Ramona crashed through the ceiling). If this movie's been done right, it could be a huge hit.
I dont remember the books very well but this looks AMAZING and wow the cast! Im sooooo excited!ReplyDelete
I haven't thought about those tv episodes in years!! Wow, way to bring back the memories. Nothing however will ever top the book.ReplyDelete
I think the casting for everyone looks great. What a fun trailer...gonna have to see this!ReplyDelete
I LOVED those books as a kid. I can't wait to share them with my own daughter. I think the movie looks pretty cute!ReplyDelete
sI also completely loved those Ramona videos...I checked them out from the library over and over!I will give this one a try though...maybe it will introduce a new generation of kids to Ramona!ReplyDelete
