Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best Movie/TV Show Adaptations
Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I loved the book! I also adored the movie movie! Sure there were some discrepancies between the two, but really shouldn't we expect that by now? I have the soundtrack and every time I listen to it, it makes me want to watch the movie again!
2. White Oleander by Janet Finch
I actually saw the movie first. Of course, the book was better. However, the script was true to the novel, they just left out some of the storyline from the book. This was my first movie in which I really appreciated Michelle Pfeiffer's acting!
I got chills when reading the book and watching the movie. The Shining is Stephen King's best work in my honest opinion. I can't watch any other movie with Jack Nicholson without getting creeped out!
4. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
So I'll admit, I only made it through the second book in the series. This is a prime example of a TV series that is much more successful than the book series. Sad, but true.
5. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
6. Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
This is another case in which I saw the movie before reading the book. I really did spoil the book for myself. The movie stays true to the book. I really need to watch this again...it's so good!
7. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
8. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
9. Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice
10. Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
Sooooo...I've only made it partially through the first book in the Fire and Ice series. I would like to say that I'll make it through the entire series, but I'm not sure that is an honest statement. I WILL say that I really enjoy the HBO series. A LOT. That, I will continue to watch!
I would love to hear your favorite or not-so-favorite film-to-movie/TV adaptations!
