When books turn to movies, they usually get worse. The movie people don’t stick to the storyline or mess up with the dialogue and make the characters really stupid (*cough* Percy Jackson *cough*) but even then, I line up to see movies based off of books because I think, maybe this time, they’ll finally get it right.
Here I present, some book to movie adaptations that I enjoyed watching.
1. The Fault in Our Stars
It didn’t hit me like the book did and I didn’t cry, but I did like this movie.
2. Catching Fire
Holy cow, this was my favourite movie of the series. It was exactly how I pictured it, like the director took a chunk out of my brain and put it on the screen. Just. Wow.
I was really young when I saw the movie but I really loved it, it’s also a little different from the original book but I love it anyway!
4. The Duff
The Duff didn’t stay true to the story at all, and completely messed up the storyline but it worked, for once.
5. Vampire Academy
A lot of people hated this movie which is why it got cancelled and has no sequel but I did kind of enjoy it.. There are worse movies. I think it was just that there had to be so much world building and character development that the movie watcher can’t understand via movie. I’m crossing my fingers for this coming back to life in TV show form like The Mortal Instruments (the City of Bones movie was terrible)
6. Alex Rider
Another pretty good movie that didn’t get a sequel! I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I wish they made the rest of the books into movies too. Also, Alex Pettyfer is in it. *swoon*
7. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
This movie was brilliant. The acting was so on point. Harry was so sassy under the effects of Felix Felicis and I just loved it.
8. If I Stay
I really loved the movie. It’s a little different from the book, Mia is a lot more dependent on her boyfriend but I still enjoyed watching it and it made me cry very much.
Book to movie adaptations I’m looking forward to watching:
9. Paper Towns
I loved the book. I really want to watch the movie!
10. Mockingjay Part 2
THIS IS MY MOST ANTICIPATED MOVIE OF THE YEAR AND IT’S ALMOST HERE OHMYGOD I AM HYPERVENTILATING.
