Hello and welcome to the Lit to Lens blog!
Here we will be posting about our opinions regarding what’s new in film and literature, and specifically the mix between the two. Our main focus is to give you our opinions on films and the books for which they are based. We will discuss what we liked, what we didn’t like, and which we think is better. We analyze the differences between the two, and attempt to answer why those changes were made. We will also be posting about any news that comes up about books being turned into films.
We also have a podcast (of the same name) where we will be discussing the same topics you see here, but obviously it will be in an audio format. So we hope you check that out as well!
You can also follow us on Twitter @littolens.
For our first podcast episode (which has already been recorded) we discuss the new film, “The Martian” starring Matt Damon, Jeff Daniels, Jessica Chastain and tons of other notable (and recognizable!) actors. The film was also directed by the legendary Sir Ridley Scott. We discuss this film along with the book it was based on, also of the same name, written by Andy Weir. We give you our insights, our frustrations, our disappointments, and our reservations, among many other, hopefully interesting, topics! Check us out, we think it will be worth your while.
Thanks for visiting!
Stay tuned for more.
