The series

The books

The Unfortunate Events series is a set of thirteen books written by Lemony Snicket (the pen name of American author Daniel Handler) and illustrated by Brett Helquist. The books follow the adventures of three siblings, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, who are orphaned when their parents are killed in a fire and are subsequently sent to live with their distant relative Count Olaf, an evil man who attempts to steal their fortune.

The series began in 1999 with the publication of The Bad Beginning and ended in 2006 with the publication of The End. The books have been adapted into two films, a video game, and a television series, which premiered on Netflix in 2017.

The movies

The first series of Unfortunate Events books were adapted into a movie in 2004, and a second movie adaptation is currently in development. The books have also been adapted into a television series, which is set to premiere on Netflix in 2017.

The cast

The cast of the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events has been announced, and it’s an impressive one.

Neil Patrick Harris will play the dastardly Count Olaf, while Malina Weissman and Presley Smith have been cast as Violet and Sunny Baudelaire, the orphans who find themselves in Olaf’s care (and in peril).

Other members of the cast include K. Todd Freeman as Mr. Poe, the banker charged with looking after the Baudelaires; Pairie Dawn Heights as Jacques Snicket, Lemony’s love interest; andUsman Ally as Uncle Monty, a herpetologist who takes the orphans under his wing for a time.

With such an illustrious group of actors attached to the project, it’s safe to say that Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is shaping up to be a must-watch show for fans of both the books and quality television.

The reviews

The reviews are in, and they’re not good. Critics say the new “Unfortunate Events” movie is a hot mess, and they’re not wrong.

The film, based on the popular book series, follows the story of three orphans who are sent to live with their evil uncle Count Olaf (played by Jim Carrey). Olaf is determined to get his hands on the orphans’ fortune, and will stop at nothing to get it.

Critics say the movie is all over the place, with a too-few number of interesting scenes and not enough focus on the book’s main characters. They also say that Carrey is way over-the-top as Count Olaf and that the movie feels like it’s been stretched out to fill a two-hour running time.

It’s not all bad news, though. Some reviewers say that despite its flaws, the movie is still entertaining and that children will enjoy it. So if you’re thinking of taking your kids to see it, you might want to wait for it to come out on DVD first.
