I read his Green Angel Tower series. Found it enjoyable enough, although fairly standard fantasy.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I just finished CAESAR'S WOMEN, the fourth book in Colleen McCullough's "Masters of Rome" series.
In many ways, this one is my favorite.   Pompey Magnus is shown at the zenith of his power, settling the affairs of entire kingdoms with the stroke of a pen and making the Senators quake in his wrath; Cicero is portrayed as an oratorical genius with a strong streak of cowardice that battles with his moral center; Cato is perhaps the least likable character in the story, making the reader want to punch him every time he launches into one of his screeds.  But Gaius Julius Caesar is very much center stage in this story - here he is at the beginning of his rise to the top: brilliant, ruthless, mentally and physically attractive and able to turn that attribute to his benefit.  The women of the title are Caesar's mother Aurelia, his daughter Julia, his lover Servilia, and his wives, Pompeia Sulla and Calpurnia Pisa.  No other writer captures the heartbeat of ancient Rome with the ring of truth that Colleen McCullough conveys, and I strongly recommend all her books - but especially this one.

Ye-es!
Continuing with . . .
Andrew Shvarts' Royal Bastards

Would this look good on film?
Ye-es!

What?
Not a TV movie or a theatrical film like Hunger Games, but a TV miniseries, as someone, not I suggested, as you could then retain more of the book.

Where?
Again, as the same person suggested: Free Form.
The built-in audience, and it'd then not bump into Descendants, and with Descendants II drawing a 50% larger audience than Descendants I, there will be a Descendants III.

Why?
The villains. Some of the best ever seen in a book.
The victims. Victims you really care about.
The scenes. A feast, especially those inside and outside of the bar in Bridge Town. Bar fight! Bar fight!
All (IMHO)

Who should do it?
The House of Mouse.
The cast. They have the largest pool from which to draw the cast. Maia Mitchell has already been mentioned.
The promotion. They can promote it.

Problems
Not a musical.
No dancing.
Not the language, which can be cleaned up, but the violence. Which is brutal and has teens doing it to other teens.

To be continued . . .

Next time: the language

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
