Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, bloggers get a topic which entails giving a list of ten things based on the topic.
This week’s instructions: Movie Freebie — top ten all time favorite movies, top ten foreign films, top ten rom-coms, top ten 90’s movies, top ten action flicks, top ten tear-jerkers, top ten movies your favorite actor/actress is in, top ten movies with PoC leads, etc. etc.)
Here are my favorite movie adaptations
The Book Thief –This is one of my favorite books of all time. I also liked the movie although of course all the missing parts(some scenes that I thought were important) bugged me. However, I still liked it and ended up watching it a couple of times perhaps hoping for a different ending. The movie also made me realize that I had been pronouncing Liesel’s name wrongly when reading the book
Me Before you –The Characters made this movie much more enjoyable. I didn’t love the book like most people did but I liked it and the movie was nice
Gone Girl-The movie and the book were both great
Memoirs of Geisha– One of the best movies that I have ever watched. The cinematography was amazing although I complained to everyone about all the parts that were left out from the book lol. I kept thinking that my friends were not quite getting the movie because of all the missing parts.Seriously, at some point I was watching them watch the movie to see their reactions. I mean how could they live out so much.I guess that must have annoyed them.
Nicholas Sparks- I love the Nicholas Sparks movie adaptations. I have watched The Notebook so many times yet it still remains one of my favorite movies. His movies are all great!
- The Notebook
- Dear John
- Safe Haven
- A Walk to remember
- The Message in a Bottle
John Grisham-I have always enjoyed Grisham books and the movie adaptations. My favorite one is A Time to Kill. I haven’t watched any of his movies in a while though.
- A Time to Kill
- The Chambers
- The Firm
- Runaway Jury
A Movie that I can’t wait to watch
Movies and Books that I would want to read/watch
- The Queen of Katwe– This movie is set in Uganda and one of the main actresses is Lupita Nyongo.
- Miss Peregrine Home for Peculiar Children– I have seen many bloggers mention this book though I am yet to read it. I think that I will start with the movie though.
Movies that I enjoyed but don’t plan on reading the book
