Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish and each week there's a different topic. As always, even if you can't think of 10, do as many as you can. This week's topic is the best/worst movie adaptations and it made me realise how few films I've seen of books I have read, I tend to either read the book or see the film but rarely both:
The Road by Cormac McCarthy - The film was exactly as I'd imagined the book
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier -the film is the 1940 Hitchcock version.
The Shawshank Redemption, a novella in Different Seasons by Stephen King
American Pyscho by Bret Easton Ellis
Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis - I loved the book when I was a child and enjoyed watching the film with my daughters.
The Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum
The Shining by Stephen King - the Kubrick film, I know King hated it and it splits his fans opinions but I like this version.
Autumn by David Moody - I haven't read or seen this but my Husband says the film is
one of the worst he's ever seen and he loved the book.
The Stand by Stephen King - I know it was a mini series and not a movie but I've included it anyway, started well but quickly went downhill, awful acting and script.
