I talked a few weeks ago about my adventure of meeting Tim Robbins and Tim Murray during a press junkett for City of Ember. Here's the final piece, as aired on the Better TV show.
I've since read mixed reviews of the movie - many saying it's not as smart or interesting as the books its based on. But personally I have to say (without having read the books) that I really enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun and held my attention throughout - which is rare for me these days, it seems. Some criticized the movie for ending like a Disney ride. But then, I like Disney rides!
