Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB on her blog here
This week’s musing asks…
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?
Some of my favorite books such as Eragon, Harry Potter, Ink heart have been made into movie is not necessary that they stick to the story line. I think if the movie can portray or even hint at the books intended meaning then its an ok movie for me. There is only so much you can fit into a 2 hour movie!
I think one of my favorite movies of all time (besides Harry Potter & Twilight) has to be the Golden Compass. I absolutely adored this movie and thought it came out better than the book. It really brought my imagination and I loved all the special a effects added in. It wasn't to pushy and didn't make me cringe.
Another one I felt was better as a movie was "The Girl with A Dragon Tattoo" . Personally for me the book made me yack. For me it was completely utterly boring. I really couldn't figure out if it was the writing style or the lack of proper translation to get the feeling across. But then again I was never the one for this type of genre.
That is what I like about books made into movies it brings our imagination to a whole new level, into a more visual sense of being. I admit some books into movies suck but thats another meme for another Monday.
