Day 7: Movies from Books?


Ok so how many of you have read a book and then went to a movie or vice versa??? Well I have many times and most times I am sadly disappointed. Case in point, The Hunger Games, most of the Harry Potter books, Jurassic Park, Twilight just to name a few. Yes I said Twilight I hated the first movie and thought it was like a low budget Lifetime Movie or After School Special...The more recent ones have gotten better and being a huge fan of the books I will continue to go see the new one when it comes out too just like I always have. 

Why was it that they made the movie Titantic made into a 3 and a half hour movie but yet some of these AMAZING books and stories we have read and fell in love with into short little 90 minute movies. Yes some of the bigger ones, Breaking Dawn & Harry Potter 7, were made into two part movies but what about the other ones? What about Janet Evanovich's One for the Money? The Bourne books? Any of the other books made into movies???

What movies were you disappointed in? What ones do you think could have been made better with just a little more time (even a half an hour would allow enough time for a lot of the plot points to be explored better). 

Let us know in the comments!!!
