Blogger Hop: Movie Time

Book Blogger Hop
This week's question is as follows:
Which movie adaptation do you like the best? Which one do you dislike?

Well I have to say the best adaptation is not going to be much different from my post last week. It is none other than Harry Potter. That being said, I think they could have done a better job in the last movie. That's not to say I didn't like it though because I did. I can't wait until July for the final movie to come out!
Another movie that I was impressed by was Water for Elephants. I think that it closely followed the book and I really enjoyed both. I am not going to lie, I cried for both.
I admit that most adaptations aren't nearly as good and I end up getting angry when the movie doesn't follow the same plot as the book. I really disliked what they did with Eragon in the movie. I really enjoyed the book but didn't like the movie. Another one that really irritated me was My Sister's Keeper. Why oh why would you change the ending of that book? I just don't get how the producer of that movie (or whoever it is that makes the decisions) would think that he/she can make the movie better by completely changing the ending. The book was popular for a reason, don't change it! Anyhow that is enough of my complaining. I'm curious to see what you all put down for this.


  1. I haven't seen Eragon, but I heard that it was a total waste of Robert Carlyle. I'm a huge fan of his and hate the idea that he was involved in such a crap film.

  2. New follower here! A lot of people have said they like Harry Potter and I can't blam them. It's such a great movie and book series! I too did not like My Sister's Keeper either. The ending made me mad. I've read Eragon but I've never watched the movie and I don't want to either. I didn't like the book much so why would I like the movie?

    Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend. Take care and happy reading!
