Should Be Reading.
This weeks muse:
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?
This is a really interesting question. I have a love/hate relationship with movies made from books, mainly because the movies dont always stay true to the book. A classic example of this is Stanley Kubricks The Shining. Although I thought Jack Nicholson did an amazing job I just didn't like the way it had been written or directed, some people may disagree with me on this.
Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter movies and The Green Mile are all examples of book to movie adaptations that I feel did the books justice.
I can't wait to see how The Hunger Games translates into a movie, hopefully it will work.
