That's right, I have found 5 Movies that I actually liked better than the Book! Now it took me awhile to come up with some of these, but some I knew right away! So here's my SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't seen the Movie or read the Book & intend to, I need to warn you that I may have to tell what happens in explaining why the Movie was better than the Book. So here they are . . .
1. The Time Traveler's Wife
I saw the Movie first & walked out of the theater saying, "That was so Imaginative!" I wondered how someone came up with such a concept, it was so good & so different. So I had my Book Club (of Church women) read the Book & it was so overtly sexual that it took away from the story & the concept itself. Definitely stick to the Movie for this one!
2. The Notebook
Now these are both really good, let me just get that straight. It's just that the Movie is so Visually Stunning. It is Beautiful. And one of the best parts is the Shoes that Rachel McAdams wears in the film. If you've never noticed them before, watch it again just to see her shoes. You won't be disappointed! :)
3. Breakfast At Tiffany's
Again, not a bad Book by Truman Capote, but I've got Two Words for you: Audrey Hepburn! Just like she Adores Tiffany's, I adore her! :) And the Book doesn't have so much of a Happy Ending as the Movie does, Cat finds a home with a new family & Holly gets on that plane & the writer never sees her again. There's no kissing in the rain to "Moon River" playing in the background, that makes the Movie, don't you think?
4. Soul Surfer
Love this Movie! Love Bethany Hamilton! I took my Girls to hear her speak at a Church before, she is so Inspirational. And It's not that I don't love the Book, but please keep in mind this was written as a childrens/preteens Book by a 13ish year old girl. My Daughters have done a Book Report on her before. Great story.
And the Worst Offender:
5. My Sisters Keeper
