#TopTenTuesday: Ten Movies I Love Based On Books
Yay... today is a freebie and I wanted to be all over this post since well... it has been dead around here. However, school is kicking my butt as well as a bad reaction to having my eyes dilated yesterday for an eye exam. The migraine set in half way through the day and ugh... anyone who has migraines knows what a pain they are.
1. Pride & Prejudice [all of them!]
From Greer Garson to Keira Knightley to Jennifer Ehle to Bride & Prejudice: the musical - they all are ever so fun and romantic and likable
2. The Maze Runner
I did not like this series. However, the films have managed to pull the best parts of the story, which kept me reading despite not really connecting on a relatable level to the characters. This cast is so cute too!
As a movie from book adaptation... I think it is rather brilliant. As a cult film, I adore how it still stands the test of time when I watch it.
4. The Princess Bride
Okay... why hasn't everyone seen this film?! Tis adorable.
5. Bridget Jones's Diary
Another book that I did not like but adored the movie. So hilarious!
6. It's Kind of a Funny Story
Absolutely amazing. Great casting and just worked so perfectly. The book is wonderful and the movie so complementary to the greatness of the book.
7. Anne of Green Gables
Made for television however, this movie was pretty much passed around my entire family and middle school group of friends because I bought it on VHS. Such a great adaptation. Perfection... everything was perfection.
8. Catching Fire
I have liked all these films but Catching Fire felt the most brilliantly emotional to me after loving these books.
9. Mary Poppins
Goes down in such a delightful way! Seriously, the best and I adore the Princess Diaries in part because that's Julie Andrews, ya'll as the grandmother... but I cannot help but think Mary Poppins took over running a country. Hah.
10. To Kill a Mockingbird
Such a great film with all the heart, heartbreak and internal reasoning that made this book awesome.
