Are there books that you wish would make it to the big screen? Discuss here!

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments There's a Doctor Who novel "Engines of War" that I'm absolutely nuts about, I'd love to see that be made into a movie !

:) I haven't been able to find that book for cheap anywhere.


message 4: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Yeah I know right :/ I only found it at one store so I had to buy it for an alright price. It's one of my favourite books really. :)

That's good to hear!


message 6: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Thanks! It would also be cool to see The Gemma Doyle trilogy made into a movie but if I'm honest I'm glad they haven't. I feel like they wouldn't do it justice.

I feel like that for most movie adaptions. I don't watch adaptions if I read the book first, to be honest. I don't want it to ruin my vision of the book.

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments I'm exactly the same. I try to do that to with the Poirot & Miss Marple episodes too :)

Elizabeth *Book Lover* | 445 comments Mod
I thought you watched those.


message 10: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments I do but that's only because I've read the books that the episode corresponds to. ;)

Elizabeth *Book Lover* | 445 comments Mod
Ah.


message 12: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Haha yeah. Though it's hard to stick to that pattern when mum often watches the episodes. But then some turn out to be way different to Agatha Christie's books so all good I guess (:

That's what happens when movie producers buy the rights.


message 14: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments It's like Chris Columbus's first two Harry Potter films were much closer to the books...

True... The others are still great though. Did you know that 45 minutes was cut out of OotP? I was so upset when I found out...


message 16: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments The others are still magical and amazing and yeah I heard about that :( such a shame :(

:( St. Mungo's especially, I was looking forward to that scene.


message 18: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Yeah, I reckon! It would've been awesome to see how they would've made that look in the movie :(

Have you seen the concept art? http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20...


message 20: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Oh that's spookily how I imagined it to look :(


message 21: by Elizabeth *Book Lover*, Chief Fairy (new)

Elizabeth *Book Lover* | 445 comments Mod
Seriously? And you're upset about that? :/


message 22: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Haha yeah only because we missed out on seeing it in the film :(


message 23: by Elizabeth *Book Lover*, Chief Fairy (new)

Elizabeth *Book Lover* | 445 comments Mod
Right :( you know, I should make a HP books vs. films topic, we're wandering off topic, oops.


message 24: by Brooklyn (new)

Brooklyn Tayla (bookishbrooklyn) | 386 comments Hah yeah that's a good idea :)


message 25: by Elizabeth *Book Lover*, Chief Fairy (new)

Elizabeth *Book Lover* | 445 comments Mod
I'll do that now.
