Didja hear about that Hunger Games movie? Heard it was good…
Ok, I loved Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games trilogy and so it was my personal delight to get to cover it extensively leading up to the March 23rd film release for quite a few outlets.
So if you have no idea what I’m talking about, first get thee to a bookstore or book reading app and let it suck you into Katniss Everdeen’s world (I’m personally responsible for at least 10 people getting addicted to it – YAY ME!)
Next, check out my coverage:
SCI FI Magazine Cover Story (see image above) featuring exclusive interviews with director Gary Ross and Josh Hutcherson (in stores now)
My FEARnet review of The Hunger Games film (thumbs up but with some issues)
SFX Magazine Issue #220 (on sale now) feature with an exclusive interview with director Gary Ross. Here’s a tease from the print feature talking about the action in the film.
I had so much material left from my chat with Gary Ross that we turned it into an online exclusive here
TV Geek Army
NEW! Should Catching Fire Look for a Small Screen Savior? I nominate 5 TV directors that could helm the sequel.
I did a fun feature on 20 things to do while waiting for the film to hit theaters. I might start taking archery….
Nothing is cuter than these Before They Were Famous pictures from the cast of The Hunger Games. Lenny!
Best comedy on TV? Easy, Community. It’s streets ahead, people! I also beg you to watch this gem – you won’t regret it.
I was part of an interview with Community creator Dan Harmon and actor Joel McHale where they discussed the rest of Season Three on NBC.
Here’s the story I did for TVGeekArmy: The Darkest Timeline Is Over!
and the rest for SFX online, where our readers voted it the geekiest show we’re not covering (cause it’s technically a comedy and non-genre, but the show blew that apart by adding Inspector Spacetime…YAY!)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains my favorite TV show for so many reasons, but it’s also the series that transitioned me into my professional writing career. I owe the Slayer a lot. It’s hard to believe Joss Whedon’s show celebrated its 15th anniversary of the show’s premiere in 1997. Shapadoinkle!
I created a gallery for Snakkle catching up with where the cast is now here
One of the best new pilots of the ’11 – ’12 TV season is NBC’s Awake starring Jason Isaacs. It’s complicated but original and involving. If you like dramas, give this one a try (it needs your eyes!)
Here are some of my TVGeekArmy interviews for Awake:
As I do every year, I made the trek up to New York City to cover the annual American International Toy Fair to dig up all the new geeky awesome collectibles and toys coming to stores in the coming year.
