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 Ross’ directorship had made of Suzanne Collins’ trilogy. Less excited was I to see Orange’s new gold spot which featured a mobile phone crackdown squad, though several 15” Canadian Tourism ads were excellently suited to the big screen.
Having already devoured all 3 books (yes, I know they’re 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) or be transcended to heights set by directors such as Peter Jackson.
What’s 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 ‘via’)
- Also a council on ethical blogging and aggregation has opened
