I know which answer I usually pick...however I just read "A Walk to Remember" by Nicholas Sparks...now this movie is one of the most girliest and touching movies I have ever watched and I always cry. But for some reason while I liked the book I felt it was too different and it didn't touch me in the same way!
I know many films cut out bits of books...(not to mention the massive discussion on Harry Potter at the moment...that will not be mentioned as I have STILL not seen the final movie!!) but this was the bits they cut out the book meant the movie was better! If it had had parts of the background of their families and the religion I think I would've turned the movie off 30 minutes in.
|I haven't watched this movie yet...|
I have just finished watching The Lovely Bones, which was a book I disliked and the film wasn’t that bad...It doesn’t make me want to read the book again though..!
I do feel some books would be fantastic if they were made into films, such as the Noughts and Crosses series, I really think would highlight the issues to the people. It was also a book that threw me back into reading for fun and that I wasn’t weird for reading, so I think releasing something like that as a film would be amazing!
In the midst of all this I still can’t wait for One Day to be released as a film, mainly because David Nicholls has also written the screenplay so I’m praying that I will feel the same as I did when I read the book...well...baring the last chapter as I refuse to read that! (anyone who has read it...you will know why I stopped. If you hadn’t read the book go do it now!!)
I think with books turned into films you can’t hope too much...with a book there is generally just one person writing it...with a film there are lots of writers and everyone with a different interpretation on how characters should look, should behave and unforutnatly they arn't always how we imagine them!
