Book to Movie Challenge
The Book to Movie Challenge has been thought of over at ebookclassics. The point of this challenge is to read any book that got turned into a movie, tv show, or even mini-series. Anyone can join at any point in time, as long as you link to your review posts. To sign up, you have to first post an introductory post, listing 3 adaptions that you're excited for (that are beginning this year), and answering these three questions:
1. Have you read the book and did you love/loathe it?
2. Why are you excited about the adaption?
3. What do you think of the casting?
As for mine:
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman
- I did indeed read the book, and at first, I hated it. BUT! I continued on reading it because for some reason, it just drew me in. By the end, I can't say that I absolutely loved the book because of how much it frustrated me, but I actually did like it. Neil Gaiman is just too good of an author for me to hate the book, I guess, haha.
- I have to say that I'm somewhat excited because I want to see some of the scenes from the book in live-action. Like, the carousel scene. I just couldn't exactly imagine it in my mind's eye, so I want to see how the show runners paint the picture.
- So far, I'm lukewarm on the casting. Some of the cast members I like, but others I'm just kind of eh about. Like the actor picked for Wednesday. I just can't imagine him as anyone but Ray. Poor, poor Ray.
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
- No I have not read this book, and I don't know if I'll ever get to it.
- Okay, yes, I am really excited. As are many Harry Potter fans, probably. I mean, more Harry Potter world! (yes, I realize there's now a play).
- I love it. I love Eddie Redmayne. He is such a great actor, makes me want to watch everything he's been in.
- I don't think I've ever read the orignal source material for Tarzan, but really, who in the Westernized world doesn't know the story of Tarzan and Jane?
- I'd have to say that I'm really pretty excited for this movie. It looks so action packed, and way more realistic than the comedy versions from years ago. I do have to say that it may be a bit more dramatic than I would prefer, though.
- Alexander Skarsgard. That's all I have to say. Fin. Finis. Done-o
Okay, so as I read the book to movie books, I will list them on here. If I post reviews, I will link the review through this page.
