This weeks topic explanation:
“Books that became movies/TV shows, movies that became books, great adaptations, bad ones, books you need to read before watching their movie/TV show, movies you loved based on books you hated or vice versa, books you want to read because you saw the movie or vice versa, etc.“
I don’t watch a lot of Shows or Movies.. So I focused on the ones I’ve seen on screen and how it has affected my willingness to read the books, or if I’d already read the book if it was an good adaption. I ended up with 4 categories;
I could whine about some details not being correct, but I’m not gonna. The movies are great adaptions of the books, a perfect adaption is impossible and they are magical!
Game of Thrones
Awesome. The intrigues, battles, dragons, the unexpected deaths and the epic cast! The best part is that they made my favourite character just as awesome as in the books, but in a different way. Tyrion has more of a pronounced dark side in the books according to me, but who cares! Thank you Peter Dinklage for your awesome performance!!! That’s it, it’s just awesome!!!
I honestly prefer the movies to the book. Everything got more depth when the dwarves were given more individual personalities and with the extra plot lines. And the cast and crew did such a great job! I love looking at the behind the scenes footage!
Interview with the Vampire
This is the movie that made me looooove vampires as a kid and teenager! The book was way better, but the movie is still one of my favourites no matter how many years pass.
Loved the show and will read:
I love everything about this show! It was not until 3 episodes in that I stetted to think that this plot sounded familiar. And yes, there was the book hidden in my bookshelf. Had gotten it as a birthday present 1-2 years before and totally forgotten about it. Now I’m just waiting for my feelings to calm down from the show so I can get into the books with a clear mind.
Lord of the rings
The movies blew my teenage mind! I still watch them from time to time and they still hold up. And watching Sean Bean die in the first movie always makes me smile because it chocked the hell out of me the first time. You know what else did? Watching Sean Bean die in the first season of Game of Thrones! He did it to me TWICE!!!
Followed the series, but will not read:
Of course I watched it. My friends was driving me crazy with their nagging about the Swedish actor on TV. First person who got his claws into me was Lafayette, then they introduced the character Russell Edgington and I was hooked!
Pretty little Liars
This show was so overly dramatic that I just could not stop watching. I honestly really like it! But do I wan’t to read the books? Nope.
Hated the movie/series and will not read:
… I so did not care about… Whatever happened..
No, just no! And did I mention HELL NO!!
