So...if you add a few words that indicate that the movie you released 4 years earlier is a sequel, then that's the same as "starting with a sequel" ?

I'm well past the age (and gender) for seeing a Ramona & Beezus movie, but I'd definitely watch it if it included this scene.

Mrs Quimby: What is it, dear?
Mr Quimby: It's about Beatrice.
Mrs Quimby: What about her? Is she alright?
Mr Quimby: Oh, she's fine. It's also that she's also...oh, how do I say this...also...very Latina.
Mrs Quimby: I'm not sure what you're getting at.
Mr Quimby: Well, you see....I'm white. You're white. Ramona is white. Beatrice is more....well...Mexican. Kinda like those workers we hired to rebuild the garage nine months before she was born.

The movie Manhunter was based on the first one. It wasn't too popular, and Hopkins did not play Lecter, but it came out before SotL.

No, it was definitely a sequel, as the da Vinci Code book references events which happened in Angels & Demons.

The funny thing is that Angels and Demons didn't do that well when it was released, so it's not clear how Dan Brown got contracted to write a sequel.

I don't know. Jimmy Stewart is a grown-ass man who knows what he's doing when he recreationally pervs on his neighbors, plus he solves a murder mystery, so he's got that going for him.

Tony McStalkerkid is a lot creepier, somehow. And I say that as someone who, like every 13-year-old boy, was  at least that creepy and gross. If the recent cover they're putting on that book is any indication, it's not something that is quite so cute when put in a visual medium:

Jesus, guys, wow ...I don't give a crap about Star Wars. The idea that I "know more about Star Wars" is preposterous... its like saying I know more about E.T. when I state that it originally had guns.

Wow. You know, i don't remember the binoculars being that huge of a part of the book to be placed on the cover. They might as well have used a pic of him hiding his boner when he had to do a math problem.

Judy Blume did a good job of having flawed kids in a period when kids had been pretty idealized.

Was it her or Cynthia Rylant that wrote The 2000 pound Goldfish? I remembered thinking it was odd, a kid that lived in a motel. Then again, i seem to remember a book where it was unremarkable that the family lived in an abandoned schoolbus. Times have changed, i guess.

Yeah, you'd swear the middle class hadn't been gutted and whole families weren't out there living in their 14-year-old Ford Escort wagons and minivans with a book value of $300.  An abandoned schoolbus sounds like luxury.

I remember in one of my 4th grade classes, my teacher would read books to the class. She got on a real run of Judy Blume titles. She began reading AYTGIMM one week and got a few chapters into it. The next day, she had a different book because AYTG wasn't quite in-class material. Most of us wondered why.
