‘The book is always better than the movie’- Every person who has read the book and watched the movie (including me)
BUT there are some adaptations that, although are still never as good as the books, do a great job, so I thought we could discuss them here, let’s get started!
Obvious one, I know, but even though these movies are pretty far from the books, they are amazing and you can’t deny it. The amount of effort that went into the intricacy and detailing of these movies is mind-blowing, I think it’d be hard to find a Harry Potter fan who would say no to sitting down for over 19 hours and watching these movies back-to-back. Also, if you’ve come to London and been to the studio tour and have seen just how much work went into these movies, you’d find a newfound appreciation for them.
If you was online on the 17th of August, you saw this movie blow up, and rightfully so, Netflix made a movie adaptation of this book and it was the cutest, fluffiest, squishiest thing I’ve watched in my life and it made me all happy and stuff. It also gave everyone a newfound obsession with Noah Centineo, so that’s great.
CORALINE IS LITERALLY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS IN THE WORLD AND NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT AND IT KILLS ME. I love both the movie and the book, the movie is pretty different to the books and added a new character (Wybie) but nonetheless both are brilliant and eerie and wonderful.
I love these movies, they always came out near my birthday so I’d go and see them in the cinema on the days leading up to it and they just make me so happy, this series was probably the first YA I read and I like to credit it with ensuring I never fell out of love with reading once I got older.
John Green movie adaptations are pretty much just like his books: mushy, gooey and fluffy. What’s not to love?
Barely anyone I talk to about this has heard of it and I don’t know why, I read this book for school in Year 8 and I fell in love with it, I watched the movie, printed out a photo of Ponyboy and ‘stay gold’ was written on my hand in biro every single day.
I adored this movie and the books that went along with them, because it was so long ago, I can’t for the life of me remember whether I watched the movie or read the books first, but I adored both of them, my mum always yells at me because ‘I’ve watched the movie too many times already’ buuuuuuut I don’t care…
Thanks for reading! Have you watched any of these adaptations? Did you enjoy them? Can you think of some that I forgot? Let me know in the comments! Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will talk to you all in my next one!
