TGIF at GReads! (1)

TGIF at GReads! is a weekly meme which re-caps the week's posts & proposes a question to other bloggers.

This Friday's Question:
Book to Movie: Which book turn movie do you feel did the best adaptation? What about the worst?

The Epic: Harry Potter
Duh! This movie was awesome! They actually managed to follow the original plot, unlike some other movies I know... *cough* Twilight *cough* I loved all the movies, especially the last ones. The only one I didn't like was The Order of The Pheonix. But the rest? Loved them.

The Terrible: Twilight
Is there any surpirse that I'd say Twilight? It's a huge DUH for me. The movie was terrible. They completely stripped the book of all it's good qualities. The cast sucked, the script sucked, the whole movie sucked! Thanks to the movie, I began hating Twilight.

Another Terrible: Avalon High
Aaah, Disney. How I despise you for ruining Avalon High. I adored the book, but you just had to go and utterly destroy it, didn't you?!? I mean, Ellie- excuse me, Allie, is King Arthur? That is total bull. Be glad that Meg Cabot doesn't sure you for that.

So- what were your picks? Leave a link and I'll stop by! :D

  1. I LOVE the book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh. When they made it into a movie they renamed her Mrs. Brisby. Why? I couldn't even pay attention to the movie because I was obsessing about this.

    PS Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  2. @ Jen- I know right? Don't you just HATE it when the names are changed in movies? Sometimes, Hollywood can be so annoying! :P Thanks for stopping by as well!


Don't just sit there with your mouth hanging open. Flies will get in. Why don't you leave a comment instead and allow me to get a peek of those thoughts running in that brain of yours?
