While there are some that work, books don’t always translate well to film or tv. What are some great books with poor tv show or film adaptations?
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The movie was good on its own, but was bad compared to the books.
Only three words…
PERCY. JACKSON. BOOKS.
I watched them once. Never again.
got half way through movie two before turning it off, disgusted
But really… I was so disappointed
Rick made such masterpieces and the movies are just… Ugh
Even he doesn’t like them. I believe he compared them to someone taking his life’s work and putting it in a meat grinder
I love pjo so much and the movies are just
Percy Jackson lolol
A lot of books can have some adaptations that are just bad in general, but some can have a fairly good adaptation that simply doesn’t do the books justice.
The ones that come to my mind are the Percy Jackson movies as well as Divergent, where the movies suck at doing justice to the source material. Though, personally I do like the first Percy Jackson movie even though it is not a great adaptation at all, (the second is alright. Fine enough for background noise or getting into the right mindset for demigods and such)
Come on @Bookworms we’ve all had at least some experience where an adaptation doesn’t do the book justice (whether we like it as a separate entity or not)
Yes, Percy Jackson was crap.
As was the new Catch-22 TV series. However, the old film, I actually thought was a good portrayal of it.
