Book Blogger Hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to discover and follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend bloggers, and gain followers. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday where there will be a weekly prompt following a bookish question.
What were your worst movies based off books? (submitted by Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog)
I think the Percy Jackson movies are a hot mess, which is a bummer because it looks so good and the actors aren't awful (some are, but I loved the actor who plays Percy!) but the script is a mess and the way they jumbled the original story is a huge disappointment. I also don't love the Series of Unfortunate Events movie with Jim Carey because I am not a huge fan of him. So it's more him than the movie, which is the same reason I hate his performance in How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Overall, even with adaptations that aren't the best, I can most likely like them for some reason. I don't have too many expectations when it comes to book to movie adaptations. The movie needs to be COMPLETELY different or completely mess up the book's message and vibe for me to hate it. Even with the Percy Jackson movies. They were bad adaptations but I had fun watching them. I don't get too hung up on that kind of thing because I can always go back and read the books.
