I was very excited to discuss the film version of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It was based on an exciting urban fantasy story by Cassandra Clare that featured intrigue, romantic entanglements, fight scenes, magic, and hot guys.
And then I saw the movie.
Well, I can tell you this much. When I tried to describe this film in a nutshell, I said that it was like they took the book and gave it stupid pills. If you’d like to hear more of my thoughts, along with those of Dan, Steve, and Larry, you’ll need to check out the latest episode of the Cinefantastique Podcast!
In this episode, we discuss the pros and cons of the plot, fight choreography, special effects and more (up to and including “hot guys,” of course). We also discuss some other new releases, namely The World’s End and You’re Next.
