Well, I don’t know about you, but I *have* to see Avatar. Simply because of the special effects/world building. And because of Sam Worthington. HarperCollins is publishing this film tie-in book for those of you who can’t get enough – out today. And if *you* would like to win a copy, just leave a comment below and tell us your top spec-fic film (ever) and why it is your favourite. Three most interesting answers will win a copy!
COMPETITION NOW CLOSED.
Because it had heart and dedication, with the message that you should do your best to archive what you know if right, even if it’s (seemingly) impossible. It was done in such a way that it made you want to be there, even though life out in the black is full of hardship. And reavers. And scary agents. And bugs! (“…I swallowed a bug!”)
It had everything! Magic, sword fighting, good vs evil, brownies, fairies, a love story, wonderful landscapes, trolls (I hate trolls!) and a shirtless Val Kilmer…
Fahrenheit 451 – an oldie but goodie, just watched again recently. A great adaptation of a great book.
Love the subversive theme that ideas will always find a way despite the authoritarian state trying to control ideas by burning books. The tribe that preserves books through oral tradition. And the opening credits as voiceover not text – so clever!
And it’s such a time capsule in the digital age I wonder what our grandchildren will make of it?
We had a very hard time chooosing the winners – but thank you all for your interesting answers – you’ve added to the general Voyager movie night picks!
PS. Browse inside Avatar via the HarperCollins Canada website.
