Movie Adaptations of Books

Postby Ariella McManus » Thu Sep 07, 2017 5:34 pm

Even though I generally find myself liking the book far better than the movie, there have been some adaptations that I do really enjoy. One that springs to mind instantly is The Shining by Stephen King. I thought Kubriak did a remarkable rendition of it and gave us some of the most iconic scenes ever. Another is Lord of the Rings (which I daresay I like far better than the book; sacrilege, I know.). And, of course, we cannot forget our own Harry Potter.

What are some of your favourite movie adaptations of books?

I'll join you in the "LOTR movies are better then the books' camp! I think because at least some of the...extra detail work was skimmed down for the movie, so it was easier to follow the plot. At least that was my problem reading it.

One movie adaptation I kinda want to see is "Bridge to Terabitha". I mostly just want to see if there's the same punch near the end, as there was in the book.
