Happy Thursday! I was tagged in The Book Adaptation Tag by Georgia @ Lost in Neverland. I don’t know where this tag originated, but if you do, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
What is the last book adaptation movie you saw?
What book movie are you most excited about?
Sorry, I had to choose two!
Which upcoming book movie will you definitely not see?
There isn’t one that I’m not willing to watch.
Which book movie would you NEVER watch again?
Again, there isn’t one I’m not willing to rewatch. At least none that I can think of at the moment.
Is there a movie you saw that made you want to read the book if you had not yet?
I did not read Jane Eyre until after watching the movie. I enjoyed the movie enough that it made me pick up the book immediately. And, of course, I LOVED the book!
Conversely, is there a movie that made you never want to read the book?
Nope. I can’t say that that’s happened.
Name an adaptation that has almost nothing to do with the book it is supposedly based on.
I don’t recall watching one off hand that was that way, but having just watched The Wizard of Oz, I was reminded of how different it is from the book.
Have you ever left the theatre during a movie adaptation because it was so bad?
No, I can honestly say that I’ve never walked out of an adaptation because of that. I’ve only ever walked out of the theaters once, and that was because I started getting a migraine.
Do you prefer to watch the movie first, or read the book first?
I definitely prefer to read the book first, but I obviously there are cases where that doesn’t happen and it still works out perfectly – like with Jane Eyre!
How do you feel about movie adaptations that age characters up? (ex. Characters that are in middle school, but in the movies, they’re all 18+)
There have been circumstances where it seemed to fit better that way and others where it didn’t.
Do you get angry when the actors don’t look like you thought the characters would?
Sometimes it can really throw me off, but if it’s done well, then I usually don’t focus on it for too long.
Is there a movie you liked better than its book?
I could have said The Wizard of Oz here, too.
Name a book that you would love to see as a movie.
I had to go through several books before I actually found one of my faves that doesn’t already have something in the works. But, I did come across others that are also hoping to see this one on the big screen.
I’m not tagging anyone today, but feel free to do the tag if you’d like, and be sure to tag me, so I can check out your answers!
