Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations
I thought the movie stuck pretty close to the book...yes there were a few changes, but they weren’t deal breakers in my opinion.
I felt the movie was much more light-hearted and funny than the book making it more enjoyable. The book was Ok, but unlike the masses I wasn’t that impressed with it.
I liked that the movie had the addition of Wybie, who wasn’t in the book. But overall Love the book, Love the movie. Enough said.
The Princess Bride
I enjoyed the movie so much more than the book. The actors were so well chosen, and even though there are some obvious flaws with the movie, it is still one of my favourites that I watch now and again when I’m feeling nostalgic.
I don’t even know what to say. This movie was just amazing, and even to this day after watching it a dozen times it still makes me cry, I just didn’t get those feels from the book. Has your boyfriend been ‘notebooked’ yet?
My sisters Keeper
The ending was pure rubbish. I understand that they probably wanted the movie to have a happy ending, but the original ending in the book was SO much better.
Water for Elephants
The movie was way to drawn out. I found myself fast forwarding whenever I could.
The movie just did not compare to the book. Its been a while since I’ve seen the movie, but I remember there being some major scenes and people missing which I felt disappointed with.
Sisterhood of the Travelling pants
Again this movie just didn’t compare to the original book. The second movie they made was even worse.
Harry Potter Series
I did like the movies, but the books were just so much more superior in every single way. There was no way the directors were able to fit in every single detail into the movies, so there were quite a few bits and pieces missing in the movies which didn’t appease my inner HP nerd.
