Feature and Follow Friday




Check out Parajunkee & Alison Can Read for more information on this Friday blog hop and to sign up and join the fun.


This week a question:

Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?


Hmmm, I don't know if I think  the movie versions are BETTER than the book, but there are a few that I think are great interpretations of the book.

 






So what about you? Are there any movies you think were better than the book? 

As always, Happy Friday and Stay Gold!

  1. Interesting choices, they're all really nice movies that do a fairly good job at doing justice for their books.

    1. Yeah, none are really "better" than the book. But I enjoyed them for what they were ;)

  2. Hopping through. The Notebook is one of those books and movies that I've meant to get to for years, but never have.

    1. The book is better, but the movie was still great. It's a pretty darn close adaptation ;)

    1. I loved HP. Even though I hate some of the things they changed/left out...I still adored the movies!

  5. The Outsiders, used to love that movie, haven't seen it in years and never read the book. Now I want to check it out! Seen Narnia pop up a few times today too, and yeah thought they did a pretty good job w/ those movies, the first two anyway.

    1. I LOVED The Outsiders (book). The movie was a fantastic portrayal and really stayed true to the story.
