The movie is based on the books:

A series of unfortunate events is basically about three siblings that lose their parents in a mysterious fire and then they're sent to their 'long lost relative' the evil Count Olaf.

Personally, i love the books and the author has a really good style of writing them. He sometimes uses first person and he relates a scene to his 'life'. It's funny and sad and its really good . There are 12 books so far and each book is short.

Read the books first before watching the movie. And no, this isn't harry potter. Some people think that these books are harry potter.

............

Well that's it.

Hey tomo! umm I know about the series, although I've only read like the first 4 books. People should read more. Anyways, the books are good and I also love the way Lemony Snicket(the author) writes, even though sometimes he makes me feel stupid by defining all the big words, but I got to remember that little kids read this too.

Conserning the movie...well I just hope they're loyal to the books, but in the trailer you can already see the infidelity.

Oh and the Harry Potter books rock and no one can tell me otherwise. You probably think it's sucks, anime public, but you should read it then judge it. I detest people who criticize something they haven't even looked into.

I read the books awhile ago because my little brother had them, and when Im out of stuff to read I usually go to his book shelf which has stuff like Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl and the like. And I really enjoyed them (I think I read the first 3)

What I really love about the books is the writers commentary!! It's so hilarious! The books would be just a good story without his little insert notes. I saw a preview for the movie and it seems to carry a lot of stylistic approaches from the book, now if they could somehow put the author in it too, I would be thrilled!..yeah, thats right, I get excited about things like that! So Ill most likely go see it with my brother when I go back home for Christmas.

Iíve only read one (Philosophers stone) but I have to say it was one of the best reads Iíve ever experienced.

I really should read more in general but it seems as I have aged Iíve gotten lazy, when I was a kid I would read anything I could get my hands on. *Shrugs*
