If you follow me on Twitter, then you might know that I recently finished reading Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (review coming on Wednesday 😊) but using that book to avoid studying for my finals got me thinking… we should make this into a movie.
Now if you’ve followed me for a good while now you might remember back in August of 2017 when I wrote a long post titled “How To Make An Illuminae Movie” you can check that post out HERE if you want but the short version is that I came to the opinion that Hollywood isn’t creative enough to make Illuminae into a good movie but I’m here today to correct that opinion because I GOT SOME NEW IDEAS!

As you may have recently noticed, last week I rewatched the Me and Earl and the Dying Girl movie for a third time. It was after I finished the film and was writing about my thoughts of it on Twitter that how great of an adaptation Me and Earl is. That brings us to now, when I’m here to talk about why I think Me and Earl is a great adaptation, and what adaptations can learn from it.
