Greg's novelization is not that like. As mentioned above the novel follows the film very closely.
Good to hear. I will never buy a novelization that has no ending. It's terrible how greedy some publishers have become.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I have generally never seen the point in a novelization of a movie. Except for something like 2001 where after the movie your going to the ending.

Is that one of those novelizations that end right in the middle of the movie? Too many movie novelizations have done that over the years, the latest was The Avengers. It pisses me off so much because it ends up being a complete waste of time.
I never heard of such a thing.

The ROTS novelization totally leaves out Kashyyyk, though.

Out of boredom, I decided to mix a compilation track for The Dark Knight Rises. Enjoy!

Read the reviews on Amazon. Itís a prequel thatís being mistaken by some for a novelization, eliciting angry negative reviews when it turns out not to cover the complete film.

Reading level: Ages 8 and up.

No, instead you just read a prequel and assumed it was a novelization and somehow took this out on the book as opposed to realizing you made a mistaken assumption.

Unlike you, I've actually read the book.

The first 75% of the book is prequel material, but the last 25% is the Avengers story. It ends right after Loki is captured and put in the cell.

I wouldn't have a problem with it if they didn't advertise the thing as the novelization of the movie.

There is a big Avengers cover. The back of the book's summary is about the gathering of the heroes and about fighting Loki. Also the book is full of pictures from the Avengers movie.

Talk about misleading!

Oh it's a junior novel. I skip those. I wish we'd gotten an actual novelization for "Avengers".

Dude, the book is called "The Avengers Assemble." It doesn't even have the same title as the movie. They gave you the story they intended to give you.

That excuse doesn't fly.

The movie is titled Avengers Assemble in the UK

The book is also sold there with the same title.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

So, what, a person only gets 20 minutes to reply to something these days? Smugness is not an attractive characteristic. I didn't reply right away because it was midnight and I went to bed.

I just don't care about this argument. You bought a book that turned out differently than you expected. Boo-frickin-hoo.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

EMH I might have to apologize...I think you could be correct about that specific from the trailer piano cue being absent from the score. I don't hear that specific one, but there is fantastic piano music from the trailer in the score.
