I thought that although Divergent was a good movie, it left out a lot of content. One small point is I wish in the movies they explained the meaning of the tattoo Tris got, that each bird symbolised a member of her family that she left behind, and her romance with Four was wayyyy too smooth.

I know, they didn't even capture the personality of the characters right

I was literally going to say that and am so glad you did. The movies are SO unlike the books that its just straight up a sin lmao.


☀︎El In Oz☀︎ (elinoz) I never read the PJ books and I enjoy the movies😂. But for me the Shadowhunters show was not good. I disgust past half the first season.
They messed up many relationships and plot lines

Tessa  Herondale~Carstairs (jessawessa) And the acting was so cringey!

The way Clary was presented as some sort of fragile girl when she was brave and fierce and stubborn really annoyed me.

Alexandra Caine (lissandre) | 6 comments I had such high hopes for Shadowhunters because I love TMI... And eventually, I couldn't even finish the first season. And when I'd learnt how they messed up Sebastian and the whole ending... -_-

I really liked the movie for the Hunger Games, but I just wish they made the bit in the arena longer. Call me crazy, but I wanted to see more of Katniss shooting and fighting other people.

Twilight. Book was boring, movie made it worse for me

Karina Flores | 428 comments The Darkest Minds literally only had the very beginning and the very end somewhat correct. It was so disappointing I was cringing the whole movie because of how many things they changed.

I saw the trailer for the Darkest Minds and that alone made me decide I wasn't watching it xd

Karina Flores | 428 comments Super smart choice I should’ve followed. The sad thing is I knew if I didn’t read the book I probably would’ve enjoyed it. Non readers are missing out

Yes, the movie sucked and sucked and sucked some more.


message 16: by andrea (new)

andrea | 65 comments I’be put off watching the PJO adaptation because just looking into it I know it’ll be bad...but I did start Shadowhunters a few weeks ago. Fun fact: I started reading TMI because I wanted to watch Shadowhunters but decided I should read the book first. Let’s just say I ended up with a new series that I love, and a new series that I hate. I bet you can guess which is which.

So agree!

Harry Potter movies sucked too. I mean, Rick Riordan and J.K. Rowling should get apologizes.


message 20: by andrea (new)

andrea | 65 comments I actually liked the Harry Potter movies but there were a lot of issues with them. Also, not to be controversial but I don’t think J.K. Rowling deserves an apology at the moment. 😀

Fereshte (thisismydesign99) | 8 comments Pines I's not a movie, it's a TV Show actually but it was no good in comparison to the books. I mean, this trilogy is one of my favorites but the TV Show was not good at all. Its potential was great but they ruined it
