With a bit of time on my hands this weekend I am treating myself to the couch potato life. I have been reading from my TBR pile (trying to make a dent in my 2015 list). I am almost caught up on the television shows I have queued on Netflix. The last thing I am indulging in are movies.
I watched Cake (which I enjoyed and may have shed a tear or two) yesterday and tonight I finally got around to Gone Girl.
I read the book in April but did not get around to watching the film until now. It was well executed. I recommend getting the author to write the screenplay.
Which book to film projects have you seen? tell me if it was a hit or miss.
This series is a set that needs a movie or two. Half Bridget Jones (the sass and wit) and half The Princess Diaries (the charm), Melissa Romney-Jones had me rooting for her since the first chapter. She’s an extremely likable character and her story needs some screen time. The entire time I was reading these books it felt like I was watching a Lifetime movie (or something similar). This series has all the qualities of a good rom-com, Hollywood make this happen.
I think this book would make a great indie film. I am a fan of Notaro’s humor essays; her wit cuts like a knife. I would probably watch anything inspired by her work.
I guess like the YA dystopian legend before this book, I should mention that this would make an entertaining movie trilogy and that I would probably watch it even though I thought the book were good, not great.
Whispers in Autumn and the rest of the Last Year series would make an interesting TV show. I would probably only want 4 seasons of the show which would tie nicely into the premise of the books (the four seasons of the year are even a character).
This was a bit of a challenge since a handful of the books I have read are already in the process of being made for television or movie screen. And many of my favorites were made into movies long ago.
What book turned movie/tv show is your favorite adaptation?
