Film To Paper? (BBT)



Even though it’s usually a mistake (grin) … do movies made out of books make you want to read the original?

No. If it's a good movie, then I won't read the book. I prefer to be blissfully ignorant of the way the story was originally intended, because I'd rather enjoy what I've seen, than ruin it by reading book and wondering how they could "ruin" it. But it also works in reverse, if it's a good book, then I at least try to watch the movie at least once! The best movie/book I've seen, was The Count of Monte Cristo. The movie was actually better than the book--and I've yet to find another combination that actually fits together so nicely.

I thought Sense and Sensibility was a better movie than book. It was a lot more focused, less rambly.

I do read certain books after watching a period drama. In a way it has only enhanced a movie. However, I don't like to watch movies after reading a book. Exceptions are there,
though!

Here is my BTT: Film to Books post!
