Top Ten Things I have to say about movie adaptions

Harry Potter

The movies were wonderful, no doubt about that. I had my problems with them and I like some more than others and I'm still not over them splitting part seven in two, but at the end of the day I still enjoy watching those movies.

The Devil Wears Prada

I am not even entitled of an opinion as I haven't read the book yet, but I loved the movie. Like...loved it!! The actors were amazing and the setting was caught brilliantly and if the book is even better, I can't wait for it!

The Hunger Games

This is a difficult one, in my opinion. I wasn't obsessed with the movie, but then, I'm also not the biggest fan of the books, either. I enjoyed them enough, but I never really got the hype. Same with the movie. I totally get all the love for Jennifer Laurens and the rest of the crew, but...the enthusiasm didn't come...

The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants

This movie is SO cute! The actresses for the four girls were pretty unknown back then - and real superstars nowadays (well, to me they're superstars, anyway). So, go watch that movie. I still haven't read the last book of the series (and I do find it kind of slow at times), but the movie is really, really nice.

The Princess Diaries 

I only saw this one two times. The first time I was in...second grade, I think - and I loved it. Because it was an ordinary girl finding out she was a princess. Finally, I had proof for my theories. The next time was about a month ago - and I hated the movie. After reading and loving all the books, I realized that it just can't compare. Sorry. Even Anne Hathaway can't make up for that. I like her as an actress now, but back then...not so much.

The Lucky One

I loved the book and I'm obsessed with Zac Efron, but the movie didn't make it for me. I remember being so disappointed by it when it came out last year. Then again, I went to see it with my mom and spend most of the time hiding in my seat because there were SO much more steamy scenes than I remembered. Awkward!

The Last Song

Loved them both, book and movie. I read the book first and it brought me to tears and the movie has come out really great, too!


Most of you already know Twilight and I don't go together really well. One contributing factor was, I think, was that I saw the movie first. And I had to sit through it and hated every second. It was SO boring. I mean, I get why some of you like it. I also get why one would like the books. It's just not for me.

Ruby Red Trilogy

Yup, this is, in fact, a movie. Here in Germany the trilogy has long come out, the hype was fading and then - the movie came out. And I'm afraid, I haven't even seen it. I saw pictures of the costumes and the setting and everything - and I'm too afraid to try it. Seriously, I don't want this trilogy ruined for me.


  1. Good list, I love Harry Potter and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants as well. I also agree with you about not really getting all the hype about the Hunger Games while still liking the series.

  2. It's hilarious that you saw the Lucky One with your mom. It is always so awkward to see steamy scenes with your parents. Lol. I never read The Devil either, but I've heard the movie is actually better than the book. I did love that movie, too. Great list!

  3. I seen Harry Potter and Twilight and read the books for those. But I haven't read the book for the rest of them. I've seen a couple of the movies!

  4. I feel like Sisterhood should have been split better, they crammed too much into that first movie from the first 2 books, it just felt weird. But I do still like it.
    And I completely agree about Twilight, I actually really enjoyed the books and then KStew's non-moving face just completely ruined it for me lol.

    1. Ha, I completely cracked over the non-moving face :D I know lots of people enjoyed the books - I guess I didn't because the hype was almost over when I finally got to them. And then, of course, I'd seen and hated the movie before I even started the books...

  5. Ooooh, I didn't know that there was a movie of Ruby Red! I've read the first two books in the series and have the third sitting on my shelf waiting for me :)

    1. That trilogy is awesome, isn't it? so hilarious, but still suspenseful and loaded with conspiracy :) I'm just afraid I won't like the movie...although the story actually could make for a good movie...

  6. I really like the Princess Diaries movies - the first is still my favorite. I think they are fun and amusing. Pretty different from the books, but it doesn't bother me. I like them both for what they are. :)

    1. I guess what bothered me about the movies was not that the storyline was different, but that the humour of the books didn't translate to the screen. That, of course, would be really difficult to do...
