TOP FAVORITE BOOK/FILM ADAPTATION
NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE
With so many book to film adaptations it would have been extremely difficult for me to choose without limits. The 86th Academy Awards will be hosted this Sunday, so what a better way to praise them for all the recognition they have provided artists over the years.
Not as good as the sequel, but the tone of the film was beautifully dark. I also have a thing for scripts written by the original writer himself.
Following a yellow brick road is a lot easier that following simple arrows. The book might be different than the movie, but the film still packs lots of punch and a great musical score.
Loved Shirley in Steel Magnolias, though this film takes the cake. The characters were well crafted, complimenting each other in surprising ways. One of the best Mom/Daughter bond seen on film.
7. Beauty and the Beast (1991) adapted from Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's story of the same name.
Awkward thing is Jeanne-Marie married a Beast in real life, who took all her dowry money to please his selfish needs until he contracted a disease due to his "party lifestyle" thus releasing her from her duties.
Still recovering from major nightmares.
Amazing Script. I dare say that, for me, Oprah stole the show.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Selznick is a talented genius. His illustrations are meant to be hung on walls.
Need to pick up one of the series' book soon. I'm so very curious. Apparently, the movie doesn't resemble the books at all. Sigh!
Saw the movie, loved it, found it quite long. One day I shall challenge myself to read the series.
