If there’s one thing that a quick look at the current state of television and movies will tell you, it’s that there’s not much need for original ideas when there’s so much out there ready and waiting to be adapted, updated or just outright ripped off. That’s why we’ve decided to help in that process with a series which offers up some of the things we’d like to see being brought to big screen or small. This week’s suggestion? Chose Your Own Adventure.

No surprise, then, that everyone wants a piece of that action – but can anyone come up with a Netflix killer by this point?
Netflix’s announcement of a price hike earlier this week brought about all manner of trouble, with the blog post breaking the news receiving around 5000 complaints within a day, and social media burning up with customers upset and angry at the short notice of the change, and the change itself. But does any of this sound or fury mean anything?
The news that ABC’s canceled soap operas are to continue after all, in the same format, online may not sound like it, but it might be the most significant news in original online television content this year. Will the web become the new television afterlife?
Nintendo has launched a downloadable game service for its 3DS console, which allows users to watch the Green Lantern theatrical trailer in 3D on their handheld system without the use of special glasses. The Warner Bros. movie, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Mark Strong, opens Friday.
