Friday Blog Hop: Books to Movies
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!
This week's question is:
"What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?"
Oh I LOVE book to movie adaptations because they combine my 2 favorite things of course. I think Harry Potter was pretty well done. They left out a few things but I imagine it's pretty hard to squeeze some of those books into 2 hours. Memoirs of a Geisha is a beautiful movie and the music is amazing. I just finished reading Fight Club and I think the movie is pretty darn close. I saw Water for Elephants a few weeks ago and thought it was a pretty decent adaptation.
As for the bad ones, well, My Sister's Keeper completely changed the ending. FAIL. The Count of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel is a good movie on it's own but when compared to the book, not as awesome. They just cut out and changed so much. The Time Traveler's Wife was ok but I was bummed they changed the ending.
Well, those are the ones that come to mind. I'm excited to hear all your thoughts.
