Musing Monday #22

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about movies …

How do you react to movies made of your favourite books (or even not-so-favourite books)? Do you look forward to seeing them, or avoid them? Do you like to have read the book before seeing the movie?

Ah this is a great one to talk about. When a movie comes out about a book I know I admit I get a bit excited. Although if it’s a book I really like I do worry a bit about it. Because you know logically they can’t fit it all in. it’s just impossible to fit all the details and every part from a book into a movie. Sometimes I am happy with the movie and sometimes I am disappointed. Confessions of a Shopaholic was great, even if I was irritated they set it in NYC instead of London. But over all I liked it. But I was very disappointed with The Other Boleyn Girl. I know they couldn’t fit it all in, but I felt they jumped around way to much. But I most defiantly need to read books before I see the movies. It’s why I am so behind on watching the Harry Potter movies.

  1. I like to read the book before watching the movie too. Last weekend I did watch The Other Boleyn Girl and kept thinking there has got to be more to it than this! I still plan to read the book.
