Thursday Thoughts: Movie Adaptations

Normally, when a movie adaptation for one of my favorite books is announced I freak out. Then IPERCYK_QUAD@50%AW_V5 wait a year, go to the midnight premiere, and then leave feeling slightly let down. I do this every single time. So why even bother caring when a movie is announced? It never does the book justice (except in the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice). I’m always upset after and I have a list of complaints. They left this out! Or what about that girl? Stuff like that. The movies can be good, but they never live up to my expectation.

And that’s because when I finish a book that I really loved, I basically want to die. I loved it so much that I don’t want to let it go! Anyone feel me on this? So even though I know I will be disappointed, I will always look forward to movie adaptations because it’s an extension of this book, this experience that I loved so much and a movie means that it lasts a bit longer. And that’s worth it, in my book.

I admit I’m totally ridiculous and crazy. Because it’s just a book. But, really, it’s not. Like I said, it’s an experience, an adventure and (dorky, but) a friendship.

    Dude. I will always and forever be excited for book movies. I just prepare myself for the letdown beforehand and try to enjoy. Oh, and I also try to refrain from rereading before I watch. That way, I’ve still read the book, but the details are fuzzy so I’ll spend less time picking it apart :]

    I totally agree! Especially the movie adaptation of ‘The Lightning Thief’. I was so disappointed because their ‘camp half-blood’ doesn’t look anything like ‘the camp half-blood’ in the books but still, I am soooo excited for the movie adaptation of ‘Sean of Monsters’. I just can’t wait for 2013! β™₯
