Stream-It Sunday: How I Live Now (Movie)

Stream-It Sunday: How I Live Now (Movie)

Have I mentioned that I am the unofficial Queen of Streaming?

We don't have cable or satellite television, so the majority of my television consumption is thanks to my beloved Roku box. (Note to self: Write a post about how we don't have cable & manage to watch a crap-ton of television.) I dig pretty deep into the streaming services for my screen time. 

For awhile now I've been meaning to start an irregular series with my recommendations for finds on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant, and so on. I thought I'd kick off this series by featuring a movie I watch with week on Netflix, the film adaptation of Meg Roscoff's How I Live Now.

Podcast #17: Battleship & The Art of "Terribletastic"

Podcast #17: Battleship & The Art of "Terribletastic"

We thought we'd finish off the first year of our (award-nominated... omigod!) podcast with a fun discussion of one of our beloved, and often maligned, movies, Battleship. Now don't run screaming for the hills, this podcast isn't just about Battleship--it's about things that are on the surface "terrible," but are actually fantastic.

Terribletastic, if you will.

Other highlights include an exclusive, only on CEFS, discussion of the proper way to assemble a Slurpee/ICEE at the movies, a debate on whether or not Justin Timberlake can carry an action flick and why Prometheus is possibly the worst movie in history. 

As always, you can listen to the podcast by streaming on this page, downloading the MP3 below or by subscribing in iTunes. If you're an iTuner, we very much appreciate your rating and reviewing the podcast, as it helps us to show up in iTunes searches.

Help Us "Ask Judy" (Blume)

I was thrilled when the lovely folks working on spreading the word about Judy Blume and her son Lawrence Blume's upcoming film Tiger Eyes approached me about interviewing Judy on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves. 

Y'all know how eagerly I've anticipated this movie, since it's adapted from my favorite book as a teen. (I wrote about it earlier this year.) In addition to my coming up with the questions for Judy (I have a couple in mind), I thought it would be fun to throw it to you guys for suggestions about what to ask, particularly about the Tiger Eyes film adaptation.

Here's the film trailer, for a bit of inspiration.

To thank you for your fabulous questions, I'll draw one random commenter who suggests a question on this post who will win a copy of the movie tie-in edition of the novel Tiger Eyes. If you live in a country The Book Depository ships to, you'll eligible to win. 

(Standard disclaimer: this giveaway is sponsored and paid for by Clear Eyes, Full Shelves, and has no affiliation with anyone else.) 

Tell us what you'd ask Judy Blume in the comments by midnight Pacific time, Sunday, May 26.

Tiger Eyes Movie Trailer!

I'm interrupting our regularly-scheduled programming from Novel in Verse Week to freak the hell out that the Tiger Eyes movie now has a trailer!

As has been well-documented, I was obsessed with the Tiger Eyes book when I was a teenager and have never anticipated a movie as much as this one. I've built it up in my mind to a likely-unreasonable degree, but because Judy Blume and her son worked on this film together, I have had a suspicion it will meet those expectations. The trailer certainly looks promising.

I don't know about you, but it's getting a bit dusty in here... It's just so incredible seeing Wolf, Davey and all the rest "in real life."

Update: Publishers Weekly has the story of the making of the film.
