Over to this weeks Book Blog Hop, hosted by Jen at Crazy For Books. This week's question comes from Britta who blogs at I Like These Books:
“WHAT BOOK-TO-MOVIE ADAPTATION HAVE YOU MOST LIKED? WHICH HAVE YOU DISLIKED?”
I really enjoyed the movie adaptation of Phillip Pullman’s ‘The Golden Compass’ – it was steampunk, spectacular, visually beautiful, and felt very true to the original story. It was just such a shame that they never made books #2&3 into films either.
I also really enjoy watching Neil Gaiman’s ‘Coraline’. I love the animation, the colours, everything!
Despite the fact that pretty much every book is better than its film version, I can’t really think of any films that I dislike per say. But if I had to pick my least favourite adaptation, I would pick the Narnia series. For some reason the actors playing the siblings just gripe me. I don’t know why – I know it’s irrational – but there it is. It wouldn’t stop me from the films, but it would be like an itch I needed to scratch.
How about you? What film adaptations do you love/hate?
