Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic: Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations.
Book versus Movie – talk about bloodshed and ruin. Anytime we see a movie crammed down our throats advertised, the immediate and obligatory battle breaks out and both sides begin in guerrilla warfare, determined the be king or queen of the entertainment hill.
More often than not, the book reigns supreme. Sometimes, the movie studios mess up and put out an awesome movie that first started as a literature piece. This week, I will share five of the best movies and 5 of the worst movies based on books. Note: There are plenty of filmed adapted from novels out there. However, this list was composed on titles that I have read and seen in books and movies.
Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan: I loved Percy and Medusa, but the rest of the cast killed it.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: All of them – K Stew makes me cringe.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss: I even like Jim Carrey. The movie was horrifying. The short cartoon is awesome.
Watchmen by Alan Moore: Why would you change the ending? Why?
Watership Down by Richard Adams: I dare you to find the cartoon and watch it without getting sick.
Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien: Yes, I love the movies more than the books – sue me.
The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle: One of my favorite cartoons. Odlly, I rank the film higher than the book.
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton: I love this movie! Yes I do! It never gets old! The music is to die for, to boot.
The Secret of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien: Outstanding cartoon. Creepy as hell, but great.
The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger: I am not a Hathaway fan, but I loved this film. I actually connected to the characters in the movie. The book, oddly enough, was horrible.
