So, since we all know what's coming out tomorrow (already have my tickets!), today we're going to talk about movie adaptions of books.
It happens to all the major books series, Harry Potter, Twilight, and now....
I'm actually re-reading the first book before I go and see the movie tomorrow night, and can I just say, I'm a bit too excited for this?
Seriously, it's going to be amazing.
But that leads me to the point.
How true to the books should movies be?
For instance, movies like the Twilight Saga have been very true to the books, not taking any plots twists or anything. I mean, think about the uproar from Team Edward if at the very last minute Bella chooses Jacob in the movies. Wouldn't that be a field day for us who are neither? (When people ask me what team I am, I always tell them I'm either "Team single and independent woman who doesn't need a vampire" or "Team I write my own hot male characters, I don't need those."
But, then again, there are movies like The Other Boleyn Girl that have almost nothing in common with the book. So, do we want it to be as precise to the book as possible or do we want them to take liberties with turning our beloved stories into movies?
What's your thoughts?
Also, if you can't tell, I'm basically a dry well when it comes to ideas for thursday tactics. So, if you've got a topic related to writing that you want me to talk about, tell me!
And, I just realized, this whole entire time, I've been spelling "tactic" wrong.
