1. Read this? Watch that!
While reading Crime and Punishment, I couldn’t help myself but see flashes of scenes from Breaking Bad. You know the show did an outstanding job when you suddenly see the inspiration from the book just by reading it once. The similarity lies in the character development. You wouldn’t believe me how they were alike. You need to read the book if you haven’t watched to movie to see all the little details that Breaking Bad was able to convey with the mind of a criminal. On the other hand, you need to watch the show if you’ve never have already. It’s an instant classic in this Golden Age for movies.
2. Read this? Watch that!
This was too easy, but I had to do it for teensandtweensbookclub. They wanted me have something related to Batman for this post, and so I did! 😀 Gotham (TV show) is actually “supposed” to be based on the comics, Gotham Central. But once you read and then watch the show, you’ll be pretty disappointed. Gotham (TV show) loosely inspires itself on the source material. However, the show itself is actually quite interesting, compared to other superhero shows going on right now. Instead of putting the Gotham Central comic series, I just went with the classic Batman Year One, where Jim Gordon first appeared and played a pretty big role. If you’re a Batman fan, you should definitely try Gotham (TV Show). Even with its flaws, it still stands as a great show to watch!
3. Read this? Watch that!
This combo was done a little blindly since we both haven’t YET read The Martian. However, both this book and Interstellar are in outer space (most of the time) and they both deal with some very crucial themes. Although Interstellar is quite lengthy and has some cons, it still remained relevant and fascinating. After all, it’s Christopher Nolan with some top notch actors.
4. Read this? Watch that!
Now, if you don’t know what The 5th Wave is about, this combination might have spoiled it a little. Watching District 9 is a must, not only for its cinematography, but the plot is close to what The 5th Wave might give you; while being for an older audience. Survival is the key here.
5. Read this? Watch that!
Mario Puzo’s The Godfather is a brilliant classic. The Italian culture, the mafia universe, the bonds and the betrayals. It is nothing less than excellent, especially on the character front. A perfect movie to watch, if this is your type of thing, is GoodFellas. This movie is brilliant in so many ways. Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta were just beyond perfect.
Tag, you’re it !
