Harry Potter, The Cat in the Hat, Twilight,The Divinci Code, Angels and Demons, Where the Wild Things Are. You name the book and it seems to be coming to the big screen-across all genres!
How do you as a writer feel about this?
How do you as a reader feel about this?
For me it depends on the book/movie. I won't watch the movie-usually-unless I read the book first. The book gives more details and makes me feel more attached to the actor/ess playing the part of the characters that I already like.
Other times I hate the movie for taking a story and twisting the scenes and ruining the story I love. It is like a knife searing through my heart twisting as I cringe watching it.
These types of movies you don't want me to watch with you...trust me. I am like a backseat driver complaining and waving my hands in the air "Thats not what happened," and "Why didn't they do this or that!"
The hubby thinks I am temporarily insane because he has no clue what I am talking about because he does not read.
It is why I like to go with my friends who have read the book. The movie theaters hate us as we sit there and gossip through the whole movie.
We were so bad during New Moon! I might have brusied my friends arm when Jacob took his shirt off (blushing)!
Some movies on the big screen...
I feel cheated because they took out so many crucial points but special effects were cool
Angels and Demons

pissed me off
The Cat in the Hat

Horton Hears a Who
I know I am missing a ton more movies so chat with me! I can only think of the recent ones at the moment, mid morning brain fart!
