Tell Me Something Tuesday #2

This is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria @ Each week there is a different question to be answered.

This week's tell me something:

Do you usually like the book better than the movie or the movie better than the book? What is your favorite book to movie adaptation you have ever seen?

My answer:

Ok, this is a hard one for me cause I haven't read so many books that turned into a movie and if I watch a movie I probably won't read the book later. It sucks knowing what's going to happen in a book. But from the few examples I have, I am a firm believer that books are better than movies. 

Take for example Harry Potter.
All the Potter books were waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy better than the movies. Although I did love the choice of characters and Hogwarts the story missed a lot of things that the book had.

The only movie that I actually thought was better than the books was Eragon.

But I don't really like the book, so it was only normal that the movie would be better. Having Garrett Hedlund playing Murtagh helped a lot too, since I adore him.
So, I don't really have a fav book to movie adaption but I am all for books being better than their movies.


  1. Yep, totally agree about the Harry Potter movies, they just couldn't quite compare to the magic of the books. The movies almost always disappoint me. I liked the book Eragon, but the movie must not have made much of an impression cause I am not even recognizing that hottie!

  2. I agree as well with the H.P. books being better than the movies (which I still loved though!). They left out soooo much!
    I agree too that the characters they picked were perfect though, every single one of them were great!

  3. well, I have never watched the Potter movies but I would think it would be hard to make a movie live up to that book. lol.

    I haven't seen eragon.... maybe i will check it out. thanks for the tip!

  4. Agree with the Potter movies! Books=so much better. But I adore the Harry Potter cast xD They are so right for the characters they play! I haven't seen Eragon... my friend didn't like the movie. Maybe I'll give it a chance!

  5. Hahahaha! I love your answer, I haven't really watched Eragon though and have no intention to buy the books. However Harry Potter books were epic, the movies were too, but probably not as good as the books:D
