I’m doing today’s post a bit late… or technically, yesterday’s post. It’s already past midnight! I have had the worst week so far. 😔🙈 But better late than never! 🙂
This week’s question:
What were your worst movies based off of books? (submitted by Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog)
The first one that comes to mind is The Shining by Stephen King. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. Everyone loves that movie! Even Stephen King himself loves that movie. It’s world-renowned. But as someone who read the book before watching the movie, it was a HORRIBLE adaptation. They changed sooo much, even the general premise! I can concede that it was a good movie on its own (if you completely ignore the book), but someday I would love to see a real, true adaptation of the book, which happens to be one of my favorite Stephen King novels.
What about you? What do you think is the worst book-to-movie adaptation? Leave me a comment below! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
