Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
Today we talk about one of my favorite topics: book adaptations!
I can’t believe it took me this long to finally read the book. It was only earlier this year that I picked it up for the first time. The book holds up so well even after almost 100 years and Hitchcock’s take on it is one of the best adaptations I have ever seen.
In a similar vein, it was only recently that I read Pride and Prejudice and watched the adaptations that I’ve heard so much about on tumblr. I’m happy to report that I thoroughly enjoyed both book and movie!
The Devil All the Time had been on my radar since Netflix dropped the first trailer. The book was so dark! It’s almost funny that many reviews I read complained that the movie was too dark considering that they toned things down a bit.
What’s your favorite film that’s based on a book? Let me know in the comments!
