Young adult netflix

Following on from here (my blog)

Yeah its the tempest

Maximum Ride

is from James Patterson’s ‘stable’ of unknown authors and something since made into film which no cinema appears to have bought being imdb: tt0825283.  Its heritage as childrens literature is apparently based on a ‘adult’ book but it was an ok watch.

3/5 bananas – if James Patterson is not deemed hollywood suitable yet i would not want to be a hollywood film maker.   Mind you Patterson is business genius not a singular writer so hollywood probably is unwise to interpret the authors body of work after all if they screwed up Philip Pullman they can wreck others.

I do not normally do popular literature  (or beach books) but it sells and i am sure the market value of Paterson will mean sooner or later its going to be a thing and tv is probably a better home for it.
