Terrible bark, not much bite – 3 out of 5
Review by Muna Hussen, Communications Planner
The much-lauded The Hunger Games has finally hit the silver screen and I, for one, was quite excited to see the broth Gary Rossâ directorship had made of Suzanne Collinsâ trilogy. Less excited was I to see Orangeâs new gold spot which featured a mobile phone crackdown squad, though several 15â Canadian Tourism ads were excellently suited to the big screen.
Having already devoured all 3 books (yes, I know theyâre meant for young adults, but until September I still consider myself part of this group), I wondered if the film would either fall into the gap of badly adapted films (*coughs Norwegian Wood) orÂ be transcended to heights set by directors such as Peter Jackson.
Whatâs happened this week:
- Twitter buys Posterous, expect to see an upgraded Twitter with greater use of images and video
- Blogging grows up: The Curators Code has been launched to define attribution in the age of sharing (~now means âviaâ)
- Also a council on ethical blogging and aggregation has opened
