Kendra A MILLION TIMES YES FOR ERAGON! THAT WAS THE BEST BOOK BUT WORST MOVIE EVER!

*goes on and on about how much they changed about the book*


message 2: by Taylor (new)

Taylor I couldn't even finish watching that one... I was laughing too hard.


message 3: by Giselle (new)

Giselle Effing Hollywood screwed up The Time Traveler's Wife! BAD!


message 4: by Alex (new)

Alex Okay, Twilight the movie sucked; but Eragon was a good movie. Also Harry Potter 7 hasn't even come out how do you want to see a better movie of a movie that doesn't exist.


message 5: by Ellen (last edited Dec 30, 2010 11:10AM) (new)

Ellen Twilight and Eragon, yes defenitely

oh and Harry Potter and the half blood prince, really should have been better

good topic


message 6: by Cat (new)

Cat The Lovely Bones. Really.


message 7: by Liina (new)

Liina Ella Enchanted. Oh my god, my friend had to hold my hands down when I saw that in theatres. I felt like setting the fucking screen on fire.

And then they made The Tale of Despereaux into a kids movie! Major loss of cool points there, Universal Pictures. Major loss of cool points.


message 8: by Giselle (new)

Giselle Really? I love Ella Enchanted, but then again I never read the book.


message 9: by Taylor (new)

Taylor I love Ella Enchanted but then I made the mistake of reading the book. I liked it less because it wasn't like the movie, which is unusual. I know I'd've liked the book a lot more had I read it first.

I agree, the Tale of Despereaux was awful.


message 10: by Ally (new)

Ally I think the film adaptation I was the most upset with was Ella Enchanted. It's one of my absolute favorite books, and I've read it multiple times since first reading it as a kid. The movie was a joke in comparison (just my opinion of course). It had some good points, and they actually made a few changes that I thought would have made the story work better as a movie... but overall there were just too many and they were too far off from the original nature of the book.


message 11: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn I think I might be the only one who actually liked the Eragon movie. xD I wish they would make the other ones, but I don't think the first did that well.


message 12: by Jack (last edited May 20, 2012 08:11PM) (new)

Jack I've seen a lot of movies that don't do their books justice, but for me two take the cake: Eragon and My Sister's Keeper.

With Eragon, they didn't even try to follow the book, it seemed. They changed so many things and it wasn't even an entertaining movie- all I remember is walking out of the theater shaking my head. It's one of my favorite series too.

With My Sister's Keeper it was a similar thing, but I was okay with it until they changed the ending. That wasn't how it was supposed to go, and I'm a stickler for that sort of thing, especially when dealing with amazing, emotional books like that one.

Oddly enough, Ella Enchanted, one of my favorite childhood books, changed drastically in the movie and it has never bothered me.

I haven't seen most of these movies- maybe I shouldn't?


message 13: by Roisin (new)

Roisin I thought the Percy Jackson movie was pretty good.....


message 14: by Harle (last edited Oct 05, 2012 06:32PM) (new)

Harle Done right, the Dollanganger series could be a great movie franchise.


message 15: by Kendall (new)

Kendall Moore Why is To Kill a Mockingbird on here?

That's an exceptional film!

All those people who prefer the movie of that to the book shame themselves. The book is a lot more fun than the movie!

First of a..."

Now, let's let people decide for themselves. It's fine if someone has a different opinion.


message 17: by 2022056WF (new)

2022056WF In my opinion, besides the first three movies, the Harry Potter movies suck.


message 18: by BOBM (new)

BOBM Have a Hot Time, Hades!
This has not been made into a movie but I think it should.


message 19: by Hannah ♥️ (new)

Hannah ♥️ Percy Jackson will be made into a Disney+ series! They had better do it justice this time!


message 20: by Jethro92 (new)

Jethro92 They butchered Upside-Down Magic. They some of the concepts, most of the protagonist was spot-on, but they changed the definition of Flicker, the magic for both Elliott & Pepper, tried to force a romantic subplot, cut most of the characters because apparently they can’t have more than four main characters, deleted the entire town of Dunwiddle, & the backstory for Nory’s family. They abused an overused trope, & in the process, the both changed most of the in-story history & created an unnecessary dark force.
