Hello everyone! Sorry for missing a few TTTs these last couple of weeks, June has been a reeeeaaaally busy month for me, but I'm so excited for this post, this is one of my favourite topics, so here we go!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, we'll make a list of our top ten something* and this week, it's our Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptions. I'm going to split it here and because I have hardly any that I dislike and more that I like, I'm going to list 8 of my best and 2 of my worst.
*In no particular order
MY 8 BEST MOVIE ADAPTIONS
1. The Hunger Games (directed by Gary Ross, book written by Suzanne Collins)
I actually had the opportunity to see this movie at a midnight screening the night it was released and I was genuinely surprised with how much I enjoyed it. Prior to that, I had watched the trailer about 298458465 times and it never failed to give me chills of anticipation.
2. I Am Number Four (directed by D.J. Caruso, book written by Pittacus Lore)
I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's an amazing story, a great book and a suspense-driven movie that followed it well.
3. Life of Pi (directed by Ang Lee, book written by Yann Martel)
An amazing plot, I so enjoyed this story, both the book and the movie were incredible.
4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2 (directed by David Yates, books written by J.K. Rowling)
IMDb Page (Part 1)
IMDb Page (Part 2)
5. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (directed by Bill Condon, books written by Stephanie Meyer)
I fell in love with Jacob's part of this book and really enjoyed the movie despite the negative attention it received at times. The fight scene at the end was incorporated really well into the movie, considering it didn't happen in the book, and that's why it's made it onto my list today.
6. Charlotte's Web (directed by Gary Winick, book written by E.B. White)
The 2006 adaption was the best, I think. This book was one of my childhood favourites and the movie was pretty great too.
7. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (directed by Stephen Chbosky, book written by Stephen Chbosky)
Loved the book, loved the movie. Enough said.
8. A Walk to Remember (directed by Adam Shankman, book written by Nicholas Sparks)
I did a book and movie review on this, and I think it's safe to say that it was fairly positive. I adored the movie and it made me want to read the book as a result, which I also adored!
MY 2 WORST MOVIE ADAPTIONS
1. Twilight (directed by Catherine Hardwicke, books written by Stephanie Meyer)
Need I say more?
2. Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (directed by Brad Silberling, books written by Lemony Snicket)
I read these books when I was around 7 and loved them, but I hated that the film was just the first 3 books smushed together in one movie and that they never bothered to continue the series.
That's all for this week, I hope you've enjoyed my list. Let me know some of your best and worst in the comments below, or leave me a link to your TTT so I can check it out. Remember to +1 this post if you think it's worthy and subscribe to me to see more of my reviews and future TTTs!
