James AcAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe in a classic literature adaptation?  I am SO THERE.

  1. I'm so excited for this. I love James McAvoy. He's one of my top 6. :) And, while I don't care for Daniel Radcliffe in looks, I do like him because he's Harry. It'll be interesting to see him in something else since I haven't seen any of his other movies.

    1. I haven't seen any of DRad's other films either, besides Potter of course. By the last film he seemed to have matured into a fine actor, though, and I'd be interested to see him in another role. A part of me loves that it's another book-to-film adaptation. And I certainly have no complaints about James McAvoy. :)

  2. I can't. I just can't. Frankenstein is my favorite book of all time. Every movie adaption thus far has made me so mad. I'll just sick to the book.

    1. Hey, I totally get being disappointed by film adaptations. Sometimes it is best to stick to the book.
