Awakening Dreams & Conquering Nightmares with a Pen
I've decided that I won't read a book before seeing the movie anymore. It's much better to read the book after. It gives the movie experience depth, as opposed to watching the movie and groaning when they get something wrong.
I'm with you on that. ~nods~ My worst experience ever was the nineties adaptation of 'Starship Troopers'. Ugh...
Too funny! Too many times I've been disappointed by movies if I've read the book first.
Yeah! It's always a bummer.
I agree. Literary license goes way too far and often.Have a fabulous day, Darla. Big hug. ♥
Yes! Hugs to you, too, my dear.
I see so few movies anymore it doesn't really matter to me! With few exceptions the book is always better than the move. One exception was Secret Window, adapted from the novella Secret Window, Secret Garden (in Four Past Midnight by Stephen King). Since one of the main points was the "perfect ending," I'd say the movie had it, the written story didn't! I don't bother to go to a movie just because I liked the book. I honestly can't remember the last movie I saw. They come out on DVD or streaming so quickly now.
Oh, I'm with you! I did intend to see the Freddy Mercury bio-pic at the cinema but failed to go. And I believe Stephen King's biggest weakness is strong endings. ~nods~ Be well!
So, as we were leaving the theater, I asked her how she enjoyed the movie, and she said, "They left so much out, that was in the book." I allowed, "If all that had been incorporated into the film, would it have run in over, or under, one hundred hours?" She said, "Shut up." We went for ice cream.
Thank you for the giggle! Heh... Be well.
I can back slap!
It's so nice to find your comment after a difficult time in your life. ~hugs~ I hope you are well.
Thank you for taking time to share your opinion. Hearing from readers adds immensely to my joy of writing!
