So, it’s not uncommon for a book to be adapted to film. Some translations are better than others. Lately, quite a few movie versions of YA books are flooding the big screen.
Red Riding Hood
Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn
I’ve got lots o’ questions for all y’all:
- What do you think about this “trend” toward filmifying novels?
- Is it good or bad?
- Do you prefer to watch the film first or read the book first?
- Do you expect a film to follow the book closely or do you go in with an open mind, expecting changes to be present?
- Ever feel “disappointed” after seeing a film version of a favorite book?
Personally, I prefer to read the book first (when I can). I’d also like the film to follow pretty close to the book, but I try not to get frustrated if there’s variation (some things just don’t translate to film, I think). That being said, I *have* been disappointed in a film version of a book I loved…
The Queen of the Damned
(Need I say more?)
