Tell Me Something....
Do you usually like the book better than the movie or the movie better than the book? What is your favorite book to movie adaptation you have ever seen.
Definitely not the latter.
I am huge fans of both movies and books, however I disliked watching a movie adaptation if I had read the book beforehand.
Take Twilight as an example. I had great time watching Twilight because I had zero expectations for the movie, but the subsequent chapters weren't that much appealing because I've gone ahead and bought the books to read. Which I sort of regretted because I have high expectations for the next installments and hated when I disappoint myself. I have to blame myself for not liking New Moon as much as I liked Twilight, I supposed if I never read the books, I would love Twilight even more instead of criticizing the movie for not being like the book. I have to say, books set a pretty high standard for the movie.
I love to watch movie adaptations, only if I have never read the book because I couldn't stop myself from comparing, and I hated myself when I do that. Well, I am looking forward to Hunger Games though, I try to not expect anything and just let the movie 'wow' me.
I enjoyed watching several movie adaptations such as Percy Jackson, I am Number Four and Beastly because I went to watch the movie without knowing the plot, and I came out happy and content. Even more, I found myself loving the story even more after I watched the movie and then read the book.
In a nutshell, I will like a movie adaptation if I haven't read the book.
And for my favorite? Well....I can't say I read much books which was made into movies, but I loved Harry Potter, so there ya go!
