Top Ten Best Movie Adaptations
Please allow me to briefly rant. I hate it, but many bad movies have been made from brilliant books. This is one of my biggest pet peeves. So I say to you movie producers out there: If you aren't going to make a magnificent movie from that magnificent book, then just move on; there are plenty of fair-to-middling screenplays out there that you can use and you won't spoil my dinner.
These very-good movies from very-good books are the exception, I think:
To Kill a Mockingbird
Gone With the Wind
The Grapes of Wrath
The Remains of the Day
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep?/Blade Runner
The Princess Bride
Game of Thrones
Life of Pi
What are your thoughts? What do you think are the best movie adaptations ever?
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
