TGIF – 12/9/11

Posted December 9, 2011 by Melissa in TGIF | 6 Comments

This Friday’s Question:

Book to Movie: Which book turn movie do you feel did the best adaptation? What about the worst?

The Best:

 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling

This is without a doubt my favorite series of all time and I feel that with the exception of Goblet…the movies did the series complete justice!  PS.  These are the only movies that I willingly re-watch!

The Worst:

 Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Suffice it to say…that I had tears in my eyes when I left the theater after seeing this film…and they were not good tears.  Everything that I loved about the book (especially the character development) was completely missing from the movie.  I don’t know that I’ve ever seen such a bad miss.

  1. We have the same on our best/worst movie adaptations list. I loved the entire Harry Potter series in books and film.

    And the fact that Eragon didn’t have such a great movie made me sad 🙁 I love the series though!

  2. I loved the Harry Potter movies. For whatever reason I wasn’t as bothered by stuff they did or didn’t put in the movies. Probably the only time in adaptations I’ve just sat back and enjoyed without being critical!

    Twilight Saga…not so much, lol.
