Best. Picture. Ever.
Ok. Maybe not so great quality, but still a great picture for a fangirl to get excited over. What doesn’t get me so excited is the fandom issues that were bound to happen. Apparently, there was a huge blowup between different factions that escalated to threats and tantrums (I missed the whole thing. I just like to look at the pictures).
I guess it is the usual battle between those who want the book followed exactly and those who don’t mind script changes. I am among the latter. Hey, the movie was on the painful side, so I am just happy for a second chance. Those who complain that the actress doesn’t have the right shade of hair or isn’t precisely the right height or isn’t “their” version of the character gets on my nerves. Even changes in storyline don’t make me too upset, as long as the basics are followed. For example, I guess Shadowhunter Luke is a police officer, not a bookshop owner (or maybe both). I have no problem with that. Had they made Clary a police officer? That would’ve been a different thing.
So, for me, I think the cast looks great, the behind the scenes peeks are awesome, and the storyline changes don’t matter. Where do you fall? Do you have a problem if things are changed between the page and the screen, or do give it a chance and see how things work out?
