Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations.
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer- Ok come on. Seriously! I LOVE this book--still! But this movie was CHEE-to-the-ZEE! There was so much wrong with this movie. Robert Pattison's horrible sunglasses (that are actually his), the horrible "stank" face that Robert P. made in biology class. The whole spider monkey thing. The "it's really just a scary story." Taylor Lautner's AWFUL wig! Oh yeah...I love Twilight--and I've seen this movie a dozen time. But it is BAD! As in the worst!
- Harry Potter by JK Rowling - Of course I've read the books. And these are ALL great movies. Sure there are some deviations. But I don't think any of the movies take away from the books.
- The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein - I have read these books and the only big thing I remember being all that different was the huge section the movies left out of the beginning book 1--The Fellowship of the Ring. But since that part was thoroughly boring and confusing, I think they made a good call.
- The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis- Ok so I haven't actually read these books--though I know I need to. But these movies are pretty dern stinking awesome.
- Breaking Dawn (Pt 2) by Stephenie Meyer- Look, y'all know that twist they threw in at the end was EPIC!
- The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold- Another one I haven't read the book, but this movie was majorly good.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins- I know people have their beef, but I enjoyed it.
- Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin- I haven't read the book of this one either, but my sister has. She said the movie was a pretty good adaptation from the book--though like always, there were some differences. I enjoyed the movie for the most part.
- Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Roirdan- Yeah, haven't read these books either. But I saw nothing to complain about in the movie.
- (this one is a bit of a cheat) A Song of Ice & Fire by George R R Martin - because it's a TV show! I LOVE it and for only having 10 shows each season, they do a remarkable job covering all that the books cover.
Best (some of these I haven't read the books so...yeah, take that into consideration)
So that's my best and worst book to movie adaptations. What are yours? Let me know!
