Musing Mondays


Do you like movies made from books? Which ones do you think have been done well — kept mostly to the plot of the book, etc?

Usually, movies made from books disappoint me. Think of the Harry Potter movies, especially the last two. Not really the most accurate, are they? Or The Time Traveler's Wife? That was horrific. So, in general I'd rather stick to the book than to the movie, especially if it's a book that I love.

The Time Traveler's Wife is still on my shelf. I attempted to watch the movie and only made it through about 10 minutes - horrible!

A book can just say so much more, I think it is VERY hard for a movie to ever approach a really good book.

I didn't enjoy The Time Traveler's Wife as a movie either, but then I never managed to finish the book. I might try and pick it up again I think - I've heard so many good things about it! Won't be watching the movie again in a hurry though!

I have been avoiding most movies made from books I love for the same reason - they just aren't true to their source. I loved The Time Traveler's Wife as a book and haven't wanted to taint that memory by watching the movie.
