Anyone remember when Percy Jackson came out? How everyone was SUPER excited to see the movie, and then they saw it?
Yeah, I hated it too. Let’s be honest, we all did. (Except for my Dad, but he hasn’t even read the book, so that doesn’t count) (;
Instead of talking about all of the book to movie adaptations that have failed. (Trust me, their’s a lot of them), we’ll be talking about MY favorite book to movie adaptations that were GREAT!
The wands, the magic, the characters, the world-building, HARRY POTTER HAS EVERYTHING! Each movie rings SOOO true to the book and David Yates did an EXCELLENT job with these movies. If you’re a Harry Potter fan and haven’t seen the movies, What’s stopping you? You HAVE to read them? They are SUPER accurate, and I LOVE THEM!
A Series of Unfortunate Events Netflix Show
Have you heard the news? The HUGELY POPULAR A Series Of Unfortunate Events by: Lemony Snicket has been adapted, again! This time It was actually DONE RIGHT! It’s filled with mystery, confusion, and a LOT MORE DIVERSE THAN THE LAST CAST! It really rings true to Lemony Snicket’s books, and It payed off!
The first season is NOW available on Netflix, and I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU WATCH IT!
Based on the popular book by Lois Lowry, some could argue that this book started the genre of Dystopian. It’s basically about a world that can’t see color, can’t feel emotions, and assigns each of it’s people a job based on their hobbies for the rest of their life. Oh, and did I forget to mention that they’ve also lost all their memories? This movie is SUPER GOOD! And, it’s even PG, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you go check it out!
The City of Ember
Also, another Dystopian. The City of Ember movie was GREAT! It wasn’t my FAVORITE book or movie of all time, but it sure wasn’t BAD! The characters in the movie and book are SUPER likeable, the plot is interesting, the music is enchanting. All things considered, this movie made for a GREAT Book to Movie Adaptation.
The Hunger Games
Probably my FAVORITE on this list, The Hunger Games is SUPER enchanting! It’s full of action, character growth, world-building, mystery, I LOVED IT! While I feel like the first and the second movies in this trilogy were the best, their is NO forgetting the girl on fire!
- The Maze Runner
- Ender’s Game
- To Kill A Mockingbird
