Oh No (I Think)

So. I haven't been on Blogger in a long time. This was partly because I was busy but mostly because I felt my blog didn't have direction. I do want my blog to be versatile but I would like it to have a main subject. At least for now, I think I've found it.

Paradise Lost, the epic poem by John Milton is being adapted into a movie. A 3D action movie set to release in late 2013. Oh no.

I literally found out about this yesterday and I don't know a whole lot about said movie so I'll keep this brief. Paradise Lost has recently become one of my favourite books. I am by no means an expert on this wonderful book (I've only read it twice and the only commentary I've read on it is C. S. Lewis' Preface to Paradise Lost) but I will assume the role of the loyal and critical fan regarding this adaptation. I will give my comments on whatever news is out there that I haven't yet had the chance to look at and any new news that comes out. When all is said and done I will review the movie.

 It will be quite a ride. I hope to get some readers (as far as I know I currently have none) so if you read my blogs, please comment. Let me know what you think. Let me know if I'm in left field.

Also let me say right now I WANT TO LIKE THIS MOVIE. I will be very critical of this movie because I think it my duty as a Milton fan (green as I may be), but I want this movie to work. I would love to see this book turned into a faithful adaptation and a great move and I think both can be achieved. Time will tell if both will be achieved.
