In Episode 5, the Bitches talk Books to Movies! We discuss our favorite book-to-movie conversions, and in some cases, movie-to-book!
Our biggest pet peeve is when our favorite book is destroyed when converted to the movie. We talk about some of our favorite books that went on to be fantastic movies:
- Harry Potter (series)
- Hunger Games (series)
- Jurassic Park (just the first one)
…and some that were not as successful (Twilight, Beautiful Creatures, Lost World, etc.). We even talk about a movie that launched a huge series of books – I’m talking to you, Star Wars!!
Here’s how adaptation works – almost everything in the movie is in the book in some form. But it’s as though the deck has been completely reshuffled and some of the cards have been assigned different values; some of the fours have been made into jacks, and some of the jacks have been made into twos. – Walter Kirn
Whether you love the book or love the movie (or both!!), don’t be a hater on what others enjoy. Can’t we nerds all just get along?? There are enough bullies in this world without turning on each other!
Have you ever noticed that a banned book is even MORE interesting than before it was banned?
Grab a bowl of popcorn and listen to us banter about our favorite books and the movies that we either loved or hated.
Bitch of the Week – People who don’t read at all, or who bully/shame people who do. What gives? Read a freaking book and stop bashing others for what they like to read!!
You can’t miss next episode!! It’s finally time for STAR WARS vs. STAR TREK… ooooh!
