Super Six Sunday is a book meme hosted at Bewitched Bookworms.
This week's topic is book to movie adaptations! Let's see if I have six for this or if I'll just have to cut it short today.
The first three have already come out and I have seen all of them:
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Okay, so I didn't love this movie adaptation. But I couldn't flat out say it was bad. It just wasn't the adaptation I was looking for. Still, I'm glad I got the chance to see it. (On another note, one of the main reasons I didn't like it was because of the cast. Other than Simon and possibly Isabelle, it was terrible.
I'm just going to come out and say it. I hated this movie. I hated the cast, I hated the way they transformed the book, and I hated how there was literally no character development whatsoever. But I'm putting it on this list because...because, well, I was extremely excited about it. Before it came out, that is. (Sorry to be so harsh, but I really didn't want to sugarcoat this one.)
The Hunger Games
I still haven't read the rest of the series. Don't kill me. But I did buy the book, so it's sitting on my shelf right now - I will get to it before the Catching Fire movie comes out, I promise!
The second set of three are movies I'm really anticipating and have extremely high hopes for:
The Maze Runner
I didn't love love these books the way I normally would for something similar to, say, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but I still really enjoyed them and I can't wait for the movie. Not to mention Dylan O'Brien! *faints*
Even though the cast isn't perfect, I think this movie is going to be much better than The Mortal Instruments or Beautiful Creatures, and I can't wait. That little trailer snippet (see below) just made it that much more exciting.
The Fault in Our Stars
If they don't perfect this movie, I'm going to be really upset. Actually, thousands of sobbing fangirls will be upset. Get it right, Josh Boone! When we received the casting I was a little sceptical, especially about Augustus, but I'm slowly warming up to the idea of Shailene and Ansel as Hazel and Augustus.
So that's all for today! What were your choices?
