Jess's Daily Q - 7/8/13 (Edited 07/07/13 05:47PM by Jess)
Question of the Day:
Which was the last book-to-movie(s) or book-to-TV-series adaptation that left you "pleasantly surprised"? (I realize they're never exact but sometimes I've been satisfied with the differences.)

I was surprised at how different the movie was.  The book was much better.

hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy was perfectly on par for the weirdness of the book

i hope soon, pixar, or some other studio that makes those puffy-looking animations, does harold and the purple crayon

I would go with any King Arthur tale that became a movie---you cant go wrong with that screenplay

The Mist.  The movie ending was so much better than the book ending.
#8 | 283 days ago

Uh, last book to movie that I read was probably The Help, I think, so I'll go with that one.

This and Warm Bodies were mine. I did like the way Warm Bodies ended in the movie just as well as in the book, even though they were quite different (or at least something big that happened near the end...not the actual end)

Are there any movies or TV series' adaptations that you liked just as much or more than the book?

i think the best answer to this question would be Mario Puzo's " The Godfather"

I haven't read Warm Bodies, not sure why since it seems like my kind of book. I'll put it on the list.

Moneyball. I still can't believe they got a decent movie out of that book. I also cant' believe it was relatively close to the source material. With movies like that, I inevitably get pedantic and anything I perceive as inaccurate takes me right out of the movie (see: Secretariat). That didn't happen much with Moneyball.

The Walking Dead

I tried some of the comics, I like the television series better.

I thought The Great Gatsby was good.  I saw World War Z also, and I felt like there was a huge disconnect between the book and the movie.  I wondered how they would adapt the book to the big screen.  I liked the book and I liked the movie, and I thought they were two different stories.
