Good idea, movies made from books never feel the same.

Interestingly, the same movie can be excellent if you didn’t know the book existed.

Very different textures, and certainly going from book to movie is like going from (looks for analogy, sees name of workshop…) a test match to a T20, whatever that means. (-:


Indeed! I love Harry Potter movies (was too lazy to read such thick books) while my daughter feels cheated by them.


I’m probably the only person in the world who felt the Harry Potter novels were overrated. (-:


Well, hard to argue this about a book that sold more than half a billion copies!

What is the Gandhi quote? “Even if you are a minority of one, the Truth is the Truth.”? (-:


Funnily enough, that blown up figure also makes it easier to argue that it’s overrated. :slight_smile:


We went to a HP film for a college reunion. We all revised the book before coming, worst thing to do… We were offering running commentary throughout the film (e.g, that wasn’t supposed to be a punch), much to the annoyance of everyone seated around us :smiley:

It’s good to hear everyone’s voices.

Agree ! There’s a lot of good books and movies that aren’t popular.

The success of JK Rowling may be due to a number of factors (People’s mindset was captured during the period of global commercialization)
