Today's discussion is on book to movie adaptations! Do we love them or do we hate them?
I feel like I have seen a lot of hate lately for book to movie adaptations. Which is totally understandable. You love a book, you find out it's being made into a movie, and you're usually promptly disappointed by the changes between the two. Sometimes you're pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of events in the movie.
I personally love book to movie adaptations. There aren't very many that I go into expecting the worst. I think I have gotten good at separating the book and the movie in my head so that if the movie is disappointing as an adaptation, I can still enjoy it as a movie.
For example, I have no hope that Allegiant is going to be anything like the book. But I have hope that it could at least be a good movie. And honestly, I don't even really remember a lot of what happened anyway so I don't think that will be a big deal.
There are some pretty good movies set to come out this year that are adapted from books! Some of the ones that I'm looking forward to seeing are:
I can't wait until this one comes to the little theater in my town! I have heard nothing but good things about this one and I can't wait!
I actually haven't read this one, but in looking for 2016 book to movie adaptations, I stumbled across this and it sounds interesting. And if it has Emilia Clarke, Matthew Lewis, and Sam Claflin, it HAS to be good doesn't it?!
Like I mentioned before, probably won't be a great adaptation, but has the potential to be an epic movie. And I've seen the other two, I can't stop now.
The Jungle Book is probably going to be an EPIC live action movie, just look at that picture!!!
This will probably be awesome as well because look at that hunky Tarzan!
I cannot wait to dive back into the wizarding world with this book! This makes me kind of sad at the same time because usually my grandma takes me to movies like this every year for my birthday, but now that I live so far away from home and have a job that sucks around that time of the year, I probably won't get to go with her. :'(
Here are some other books that are hopefully well on their way to the big screen!
THE DARKEST MINDS! I need this one to happen! I need to add the movie cover books to my collection! Ahhhh!!
This one is gonna be good!
The trailer looks fantastic. And the guy who will be Miles Archer looks even better!
Other honorable mentions (AKA I'm sick of uploading photos) would be Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver! Oh! And Legend by Marie Lu!!
What are your thoughts on book to movie adaptations? Are you excited for any of these ones as well?
