Books being made into movies can be a bittersweet experience. Sometimes you prefer the book, sometimes the movie. Often, I find I am quite disappointed in the movie the first time I see an adaptation because it never quite follows the book plot, or the characters aren’t really how I pictured them. It doesn’t stop me watching them though and these are more book to movies I will be going to see.
1. The BFG
Just out so be sure to catch it. There is already an animated movie of this Roald Dahl classic that was mainstay in the childhoods of many of today’s adults, but legendary director Steven Spielberg has taken it upon himself to bring the magical story to a whole new generation of fantasy lovers with this epic scale remake. I was certainly somebody who loved the old cartoon, but seeing the trailer for this reimagining sends shivers down my spine, it looks absolutely amazing! Catch up on the book before seeing it.
