Top Ten Tuesday [12]

Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten best and worst book to movie adaptation experiences!
 
I honestly don't have ten for this week. Keep in mind, opinions are different. My bests, may just so happen to be your worst. Everyone is different! 
 
So for a few of my bests-
1) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone- Need I say more?
2) Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 & 2- I'm a huge fan of the series and Breaking Dawn just so happens to be my favorite book. The movies did not disappoint!
3) The Hunger Games- Fantastic!
 
A few of my worsts-
1) Twilight- As I said I'm a huge fan of the series, however not a huge fan of this movie.
2) The Lightning Thief- When you don't compare it to the book, it's a great movie, but when comparing it to the book, it's just...NO!
 
A new category- IN BETWEEN (adaptations that weren't that good or bad)
1) The Last Song- For the most part it stayed true, but I feel as though so much was left out!
2) Safe Haven- A good movie, however, they changed quite a bit in my opinion.

  2. Totally right about Harry Potter! And I know what you mean about Percy Jackson - as a movie it was good, but as an adaptation so much went wrong

    Thanks for stopping by My Top Ten - new bloglovin follower :D

  3. I enjoyed all of the Harry Potter movies and I did like the Twilight movies--the last one is on our list. And The Hunger Games is on our list as well, but still not as good as the movie!

  7. Great list! Harry Potter made my list as well. I don't think I had strong feelings either way on any of the twilight movies. I thought they were all pretty good adaptations, but didn't passionately love or hate them. :D

  10. Yep, those are my exact thoughts on The Lightning Thief. I am very curious as to how they're going to fix what they cut out in the second movie, because it's such a continuation. But Logan Lerman as Percy was amazing!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  11. I love the Hunger Games movie! I haven't read The Lightning Thief, so I enjoyed the movie. Maybe I'll have to read it soon and then watch the movie again.

  12. Twilight and The Lightning Thief were indeed some of the all times worst adaptations!
