Book to Movie Question


Yesterday my friend Mark and I set out on a bike (motorcycle) trip to Olathe Kansas. In two days we have put 550 miles on our bikes. I am looking forward to spending time with some friends I went to school with when I was in 10th grade.

I have a few ideas that I’m working on for future blogs so please keep checking back from time to time as I will be updating as often as I can while on the trip. Until then I send you all smiles.

A few moments ago I saw the preview for The Time Traveller’s Wife. I read the book last summer and absolutely loved it. Now I am excited about the movie, but I’m also nervous. We all have read books that we loved but when turned into a movie we were so upset because it was nothing like the book.

So now a question for my readers (I love pretending it is hundreds of you LOL). I know that the movie is never as good as the book, but what movie adapted from a book has disappointed you the most?

    Only three Steven King stories adapted to film that I have seen were as good as the book. Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and Stand By Me. Anything else that was horror related has been complete “B” material. I believe the reason for that is no director has been able to capture the essence of King’s nightmare and transform it in to something believable instead of laughable.

    I haven’t read The Time Travelers Wife, but look forward to seeing the movie.

    By the way love the blog, very interesting and quirky…

      Appreciate the comment and for checking out my blog Kanye. I have to agree with you. I imagine that as a director it would be tough to capture the essence of King’s nightmares. Laughable was Langoliers LOL.
