I’m going to try not to spam you guys with posts this week so I won’t be participating in a lot of Bout of Books challenges since I have other posts that I want to put up this week and like I said, I don’t want to be spamming you guys with posts.
BUT I liked the topic for this challenge and couldn’t resist. 🙂 Here’s the original post for this challenge on Writing My Own Fairy Tale.
BEST BOOK-TO-MOVIE ADAPTATION
This is such an easy answer: The Hunger Games. I felt like this is a rare instance where the movies actually got better as the series went on, but even the first movie was really good and did a pretty good job of sticking to the book. From Catching Fire on, it was pretty much a spot-on adaptation. So these movies definitely get the award for the best book to movie adaptation.
WORST BOOK-TO-MOVIE ADAPTATION
Why do I have the feeling I won’t be the only person giving this answer? I have to go with the Divergent series. More specifically, Insurgent. I liked the Divergent movie just fine. It changed some things, but I felt overall it was the same story and I still enjoyed it. My biggest complaint with that movie was that Christina felt so unimportant but throughout the whole book series, I loved her and felt she was quite a prominent character. But then came the Insurgent movie. When I first saw it, I didn’t mind it. I was disappointed but thought it was still okay. As time goes on, though, I hate that movie more and more. And I can’t even say anything about the Allegiant movie because I didn’t go see it. I realized that Insurgent wasn’t that good and then I heard everyone’s complaints about the Allegiant movie so I just didn’t bother.
