Movie and TV Connections
For some reason or another all the middle-aged women guests at the company Christmas party last year were squealing over The Princess Diaries 2. I don't think they'd seen it. I watched it on DVD this past weekend. Oh, my goodness. The ending of the movie definitely sounds like the end of the line for that series, and it's a darn good thing, in my humble opinion.
I'd still be willing to give the books a shot, but my library never has the first volume around when I think to look for it.
This past weekend (last night to be exact) I also saw the second episode of the third season of Foyle's War. Now, Foyle's War has absolutely nothing to do with children's or YA literature. However, it was created and written by Anthony Horowitz, who writes the Alex Rider series. I'm not crazy about Alex Rider, but I'm a big Foyle fan.
Maybe it's because, heaven help me, I've reached an age where I find men like Michael Kitchen attractive. Hey! It takes a lot of guts to wear a hat like that!
