Forexample, when you see a thread discussing MCR’s latest video and you want toshare your favorite part, please post in the existing thread rather thanstarting a new one. Asking questions isn't necessarily a bad thing; however,please use the search button first. Do not post the same thread in more thanone forum. This will all keep the board less cluttered and help things to runmore smoothly. Please post topics in their appropriate forums. If youposted a thread (that doesn't belong in the forum it was posted in) and it hassuddenly disappeared, chances are it has been moved to the appropriate forum.Please look there and please DO NOT re-post a moved thread because you cannotfind it.

Additionally, do not post anyone else’s personal/ privateinformation on the boards.** 4. Respect Board Members: Please be respectful of others. It is ok to have an opinion;however, it is not an invitation to bash someone. Disagreement is OK.Controversy is OK. Everyone can be respectful when they disagree. There is noneed to get nasty over a disagreement. Keep in mind that people of all agesread these boards. Some people may kid around and be sarcastic, but I thinkpeople can generally decipher the difference. Provoking them will not solveanything and if they are bothersome to everyone (and its obvious), they will betaken care of. Report ANY thread you think a moderator should look at.Sometimes the board admin/mods might miss a thread. If you find spammers,obnoxious threads, or anything you think should be reported, send the mods/admina message or report the thread (see below for more info on reporting posts). 5. Personal Attacks and Trolls: Sometimes, disagreements can turn into personal conflicts. This canbe classified as something going beyond a minor disagreement and it turninginto something that can be handled outside of the boards. Please, try to avoidthese, or they will be handled otherwise. However, if someone makes fun of youbecause you didn't read the above listed advice, that is NOT considered apersonal attack. There is a difference. If it needs to be more clearly definedlater, that can be arranged. 6. Closed/DeletedThreads: Please be aware that if you don't follow the rules, there will beconsequences. It’s up to the discretion of the board admin and moderators.Threads/posts can get deleted, edited, or closed when deemed appropriate.

Threads/posts will ALMOST never be disposed of for an opinion.However, the option is always there for a thread to be deleted/edited(especially if it goes against the board regulations). 7. Reporting Posts:Do you see a post/thread with content that you think violates some of the ruleslisted above? Most of the time a board admin or mod will catch it. If it’s notclosed or handled quickly, feel free to report the post. Although they try, itis not possible for admin/mods to view every post on every page all the time.Any help you can provide in helping us solve these problems is greatlyappreciated. When reporting a post, please make sure to include a descriptionwhy the admin/mod needs to address the thread or post.

If you're unsure whether or notsomething is a bootleg, here's a simple rule of thumb - if someone sitting inthe audience recorded it, it's a bootleg. Officially recorded aired ontelevision, radio, etc are perfectly acceptable. If you're still unsure, do nothesitate to contact a mod asking whether or not the audio/video you'd like topost is an illegal recording. This is both out of respect for MCR and any otherperformers, as well as to conform to all applicable copyright laws. 11.

^ When I first read your post, I forgot the discussion was about the "new" Harper Lee book, and thought you were referring to Watchmen the comic book. Still fits in context! The ending of that comic is pretty mind-blowing.

I'm thinking about re-reading Harry Potter for the millionth time... I'm planning a Potter-themed Halloween party and I have it on the brain :rolleyes:

sorry to say, I never read the comic. Is the movie at all close to it? Might be easier for me to get the movie here.

Harry Potter? I still have to read like the last...or wait, I only actually read the first? Maybe I shouldn't admit that here...but the movie was soo well done and I didn't have time to read them, so I started watching. Even then, I still have 2 or 3 to catch up with. :P

Francesca, is that David Ducovney? Sp? Ohhh Holy COW and india I just "got it". Hmm, I am kinda vegetarian without reading the book, but I also eat only certified halal meat that avoids all the commercial money grubbing awful ways they produce meats here. (idk about UK, if or how bad it is there). Funnily enough, there are also places in India where people eat this way too (halal) meaning not ALL Indians are vegetarian. But they certainly do have some great vegetarian cuisine! Wait, so is it bad in UK too? What made YOu read this book?

The movie is atrocious compared to the comic. They changed the ending and added a lot of ridiculous things. I saw it in theater and was so mad that I wasted money on it.

The Harry Potter movies... I feel the same way about. You miss a lot by only watching them and not reading the book.

I think the only book-to-movie adaptation I've really liked is Fight Club, and that movie is pretty word for word what's written in the book.

is the meat preparation process bad there as it is in US? halal, kosher, etc aside I mean.

 

I have absolutely no idea.

I think it's so ironic that Emma Watson is a UN ambassador for women's rights yet film Hermione was watered down almost beyond recognition. <_<

UGH Watchmen (the movie) was SO. BAD. The novel has so many interweaving stories and details, every time I read it I find new elements. And the movie was just another impending doom moody superhero film. I was so disappointed. And why did they re-write the entire end plot?? I just don't get it.

 

I wish I could go back in time and wait to read Harry Potter until after the movies so that I could enjoy the film versions more because I wouldn't constantly be comparing them to the books. And then when I'd read the books after, they'd be even better.

I just remember reading the ending of watchmen and being so mind blown... And not seeing that in the movie was sooo disappointing :(

I think that's my plan. Finish the Harry Potter movies, then go back and read. Maybe the longer books weren't captured so well on film, but the first, the one I actually read, I thought was pretty accurate. The hat thing was just how I pictured it. Anyway, that's my plan. Haven't read or seen the others but I am going to watch MadMax cuz I just got it.

What I really wish is that they made the HP books into a TV series instead of a film series, like they did with A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones. That would have been so amazing!

They still can, you know! Maybe in a few years when Dan, Emma, and Rupert are a little older so it doesn't seem like they're being replaced. Then they could really flesh out the story and include the thousand and one things that they didn't have room to include in the movies

Yes I think so they're lovely! It always irritates me that CDs have one cover, but books depend on the publisher. Some country-specific book covers are terrible. If I ever do write a book and I'm lucky enough to have it sold internationally, there will be one cover and it'll be one which was the result of collaboration between the author and I  - not the result of a paragraph the illustrator was allowed to read and told to recreate.

One of the silliest things I ever read was how John Green wanted to have the cover of 'Looking for Alaska' have just the smoke, but the publishers put the candle nub because they didn't want it to look like cigarette smoke. Well it was supposed to be cigarette smoke, because cigarettes are one of the main motifs in the book! I think they released it later without the candle...

It's really inspired me to redecorate everything into black and white.

I'll have to check that book out. The Night Circus is about magic and stuff as well.

I love magic/supernatural books, if they're done well. The cover for The Raven Boys would have out me off if I hadn't seen it discussed online - it's a YA novel and billed as a romance, but it's actually a lot more interesting!

I really like Maggie Stiefvater's writing, so I want to read that series. I had the same reaction when I heard of Shiver because it sounded like a dumb twilight-type supernatural romance but I actually really really enjoyed it

Right now, these:

 

The 6th Ward (actually an Attack on Titan fanfiction, but a really good Attack on Titan fanfiction that, like, everybody should read. Everybody.)

 

This book by Dick Gregory (linked because some might find the title offensive)

 

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
