Please note that these are my پسندیدہ adaptions, and I am not claiming that they are the best یا the most faithful. These are my personal opinions of فلمیں that I believe were were just as great, یا even better than the کتابیں they came from.




#5 - Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)
Based on "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe" سے طرف کی Fannie Flagg
There was a looot of book stuff that didn't make it into the movie. But since I saw the movie before I read the book, I didn't mind. The book provides مزید backstory on the town and the people in it, and includes a lot of characters that...

1. Gulliver's Travels from 1939 made سے طرف کی the Max Fleischer studio. Based on the novel سے طرف کی Jonathan Swift, this film is my سب, سب سے اوپر پسندیدہ out of the two films the Fleischer brothers had ever made


2. Bambi from 1942 made سے طرف کی the Walt Disney Studio and based on the book سے طرف کی Felix Salten. Now I had wanted to read the original book the movie is based on, so I'd ordered it online.


3. Cinderella. I know fairy-tales are part of literature and Charles Perrault's story of Cinderella is one of my پسندیدہ fairy-tales; it's another پسندیدہ literary film from Disney


4. Alice in Wonderland from...

I read the کتابیں of this series before seeing the movie as I always do with book to movie adaptions and have just seen the movie. I think they did quite well with it but I'm not sure it lived up to the books. They changed hair colours of Mrs Coulter, Lyra and even Serafina, small details that may not matter too much but is it hard to dye hair? Already that is beside the point as the actors playing the characters did a very good job and i think were well chosen. I was a bit disappointed that the cut a fair bit out, the movie wasn't long and they could have easily added مزید in without it getting tedious, I was also disappointed with the ending as they didn't finished it in the same place as the کتابیں as i would have liked to have seen. All though i do think the movie was quite good for and adaptation of a book and did very well, but thats just my opinion.
Joe Wright is a harsh critic. In the Director’s Commentary of the 2005 feature-length film Pride and Prejudice, he frequently laments that certain scenes of the film just don’t work.

To state just a few, the first meeting of Mr Bingley and the Bennet family at the Meryton Assembly was “not well-shot,” “boring” and “flat”; the artificial lighting was unflattering for Judy Dench’s complexion; and he will think again before ever working with CGI.

Perhaps he was just too close to the project, because I found the film to be a cinematically beautiful, well constructed, and touching...

THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would آپ be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would آپ be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would آپ do if it's illegal to do a cover of your پسندیدہ song on YouTube? What would آپ do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would آپ do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality...

The Mortal Instruments, the project left for dead is now back as Lily Collins is re-set to play the story’s lead character Clary Fray. Word of that goes back to 2010 when Collins has been originally set to سٹار, ستارہ in the first installment of the novel series City of Bones, but, then, Scott Charles Stewart had been attached to direct for Screen Gems.

Now comes word that Harald Zwart, whose last directing credit was the Karate Kid remake in 2010, is set to direct The Mortal Instruments for Screen Games, which has teamed with Constantin Film and Unique Features to develop the motion picture adaptation...

Colleen McCullough hated Meggie Cleary.

The news came as quite a surprise to me, but apparently it’s true. In April 2009, as the best-selling مصنف worked on the stage musical version of her literary triumph, the UK Daily Mail quoted her directly:

“Meggie in The Thorn Birds is basically my mother. I detested her. Can آپ imagine writing a 280,000-word book and hating your heroine? She was everything I despise in a woman. She suffered and, worst of all, she enjoyed suffering.”

I didn’t pick up on the author’s hatred when reading the book – far from it – my interpretation was that...

This spot was created to celebrate book-to-tv/film-screen adaptations. True, there is no way that a live version will ever live up to our imagination. And yes, there are hundreds of examples of how this formula can go wrong. But there are also hundreds of examples of how the formula can go right and astonish us with the magic of cinema, yet all too often these examples are forgotten -- and so this spot is to remind ourselves of both the good and the bad, and to discuss either.

A common criticism of book-to-screen adaptations nowadays is that filmmakers are seemingly relying too often on literature...
