This week's topic is:
Which book to movie adaptions do you love?
Which ones are so bad that you wish you could unsee them?
Which ones actually turned out better than the book?
One book-to-movie adaption I love is the adaption of The Princess Diaries. It's very very different from the book, but I don't care! I love how Disney took out all the not-really-for-kids content, but still managed to make it a cute and enjoyable movie.
Another good one is the movie adaption of Holes. It was so true to the book, I was surprised! The only things that were different were a couple minor details that weren't important at all.
One that's so bad I wish I could un-see it is the adaption of Prince Caspian. It was so terrible. I hate how they *spoilers* added the romance between Susan and Caspian! It NEVER happened in the books! It was completely pointless too, because they never see each other again anyway! Some of the dialogue was really cheesy too, not at all like the book.
As for ones that turned out better than the book.....don't come at me with pitchforks, but I liked the Inkheart movie better than the Inkheart book. I think the book dragged a little (though that could be because it's translated), whereas the movie was pretty fast-paced.
Another movie I like far better than the book is Stuart Little. Stuart Little is one of those movie that my family has seen 3,000,000 times, and we all quote it on a regular basis. I didn't read the book until much later, and I was sooo disappointed. The ending was the worst. It was like E. B. White thought, "Oh, I'm bored of writing this," and just ended the book.
