Today on Top Ten Tuesday we’re talking about page to screen adaptations. I’m forever behind on adaptations so I thought it might be fun to post about some of the ones I’d really like to get around to watching!
1. American Gods
This is the number one priority on my list – I keep meaning to watch it and just haven’t got around to it yet but it honestly looks amazing.
2. Love, Simon
Love, Simon is one where I haven’t seen the movie or even read the book but I’ve heard such amazing things that I really just need to get a copy of the book and then watch the movie straight afterwards.
3. Pet Semetary
I was really looking forward to this adaptation and recently went to the cinema to see it only to discover they weren’t showing it anymore (we went to see Us instead). I did enjoy the recently remake of It (though I had thought it would be scarier). Looking forward to seeing how I get on with Pet Semetary.
4. The Hate U Give
I think I’m the only person on the planet that hasn’t seen this movie. It did so well and I’m sure it’s brilliant – I just haven’t gotten around to seeing it yet.
5. The Darkest Minds
I heard sort of mixed things about the movie adaptation to The Darkest Minds so I think that’s part of the reason why I haven’t watched it yet – if you have definitely let me know your thoughts!
6. A Simple Favour
I saw the movie trailer for this and thought it looked really interesting. When I heard it was based on a book I thought maybe I could read the book first and then see the movie, but here we are having done neither – story of my life.
7. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children
I’ve only read the first book in this series and I haven’t had the chance to see the movie yet, but I absolutely love Eva Green so I’m really keen to see the movie adaptation – and to get around to the rest of the books in the series!
8. The Perks of Being A Wallflower
I literally have no excuse for why I haven’t seen this movie. I’ve read the book twice (once fairly recently) and I really want to see how the film compares – maybe I need to have a weekend of binging movie adaptations!
9. Good Omens
This one is a slight cheat because it isn’t out yet but it looks incredible and I’m determined this will not be one that takes me four years to watch..
10. Divergent series
I have actually seen the first movie in the Divergent series, but not the other two. I did quite like the first film so I’m interested to see how it continues in film form.
So those are the page to screen adaptations I really want to see! What adaptations are you excited to see? And if you’ve seen any good ones recently definitely let me know what you thought!
