Today’s question is: “What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?”

Answer: The Harry Potter ones were pretty good! although a few of them sort of left out the good parts of the book (you can’t all be perfect). The worst book to movie for me was The Other Boleyn Girl. Seriously..that was so bad I was so happy I read the book first.

What about your answers?

If you’re from the Hop, hi! 🙂 here have some apricot butterscotch scones!

  1. Oh The Other Boleyn Girl was a bit disappointing wasn’t it. I forgot that one.

  2. The Other Boleyn girl was a bad movie, the book was much better.

  4. The Other Boleyn Girl as JUST a movie was fine. As a book adaptation it totally stunk.

    Gone With the Wind was good. I’ve seen a couple Little Women adaptations I’ve really liked. (Katherine Hepburn is the best Jo EVER). The Secret Life of Bees was great, too.

  6. Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

    I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.

    Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out – http://www.howardsherman.net

    • Howard, I agree with you. All things considered, I don’t think any movie about those books could’ve been better. Of course, I recommend the extended versions as they added more of the stories!

  7. The Harry Potter movies were good, at least the ones I’ve seen. I also really like The Shining, more than the book actually.

  8. I didn’t like the film of The Other Boleyn Girl either, felt it kind of missed the point completely!
