Follow Me Friday- Movies better then books?
Thursday, November 14, 2013
This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. Sounds like GFC is eventually going away.. so you may want to follow by email or bloglovin/feedly (I love both). And now for this week's question....
Q. Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better then the book?
A. Wow... so I had to really think about this one. It was hard. There are two that I am going to pick. One is going to be a TV show and one a Movie. First up.. the Wizard of Oz. Not the new OZ movie (though I did enjoy that) but the Wizard of Oz movie . The book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum is a good book, but the movie is much more magical. I love the ruby slippers, the different color horses, the music, I mean it is actually better then the book.
Next up we have Game of Thrones.. yeah OK so if you have actually read those books then you know that they are fantastic of course. BUT.. the show is pretty fantastic too. And much much shorter. HBO does a good job with books to shows I have found.. though the question is will George RR Martin finish the series before HBO does. I have actually stopped reading the book until the series is finished. I just can't take these games!
What about you? What do you think is better then the book?
Also.. I have a poll going about goodreads and it's bookclub if you want to stop by here and help out! Great discussions going about it.
