^^ I agree. Ella Enchanted SUCKED. Well, the movie did. I liked Char in the book, though.
Lord of the RIngs was EPIC. I watched the movies first, cuz they came out when I was 10, and wouldn't have understood the books, but when I finally did read them, I was happy with how much they kept. Course, I can still point out EVERY differentiation from the books. But it all fit together really well into one of the most epic movies ever!
Eragon- ... Holy crap. Honestly, I love the books. Theyre not the best ever, but theyre still really good (am I the only one who's read Brisingr???) but the MOVIE. ARGH. That was painful! They took about half the plot and matched it up with a new plot that hardly made sense, and nothing truely felt like the book did! They definately could have done a better job.
But last, and not least, the most painful adaption...
The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising
That. Was. Horrible. Honestly, it should even be NAMED after the Dark is Rising. The book is too good to be degraded with such a horrible movie. Not even Susan Cooper, the author, liked it. At all. They took maybe, two plot points, screwed everything else, tried to modernize it (this book CANNOT be modernized) and added new thins that never ever existed and made NO sense. I was in tears, it was that bad. *shudders*
I assume you all think I'm too harsh a critic, but that's just how I am. I'm a die hard book fan. (And The Seeker really did suck)
Which is why I doubt I'm going to like Twilight.
