I think people sometimes forget that the term "film adaptation" does not directly translate into "film version". And that the phrase "based on the book" does not directly translate to "copied off the book".

Yeah, but what if we turn a 300 page book into 3 two-and-a-half hour movies?

Yeah, but 						*******					 awesome films!   
   
And to be honest, if theres one series that there's no harm in getting more of, its LoTR   
   
 And they involve a lot of other stuff, things from Gandalfs part of the stories and the wizards fighting the Necromancer

If you're gonna make a statement about something, at least get the title right.

I really wish that was an actual job because they seriously ****** this movie up. Left out MOST of the zero-g mach battles, most of the fantasy quest game and effects it had on Ender, the effect of what happened to his bully and what happened to bonzo was also left out, most of the **** between Ender and pretty much ******* everyone was left out

Don't even put Hunger Games up there, because that was such a ****** book. People who say it's a great book wouldn't know a great book if it bit them in the ass. That book was made to be a ****** teen fiction that they knew would leave shelves because 13 year olds don't have the mental capacity to read much else, but then it was turned into a movie with the goal of turning it into a block buster movie which forced them to actually make it good. I wrote a whole essay about why that movie is better on a critical level.

What you are is a snob, a snob who thinks that ******** on a movie adapted from a book makes you look smart, but judging by your choice of book (Hunger Games, Eragon, and Warm Bodies to be precise), your taste in books is ****** and juvenile, so you have no room to talk.

I disagree with that, because a some changes made can be good. For example, in Game of Thrones, Theon's transformation into Reek is gone into and has made a great story. Anyone who has read aSoiaF know that his transformation isn't shown as a narrative, and is only talked about briefly. That and Catelyn Stark is no were near as good of a character in the book as she is in the show. Maybe it's because Michelle Farely is that good of an actor, but they did add in good scenes for her, like the one where she's talking about a sick Jon Snow.

what they did to Eragon should be a criminal offence punishable by death to the director and everyone related to him in any way so the genes can't be passed on

and then every ******* movie would be ******* boring because most books arent written to be movies.

I feel like people like this have never actually put any thought into how a film is written/made

i want to slap jennifer lawrence with hunger games book so hard that her eyeballs pop-out. she is nthing like katniss everdeen, and what worse it when people say that to her she said she didnt make herself thin because she didnt want any 16yo girls starve themself to become katniss. holy ******* **** mega ****** bitch head, hunger games wasnt a ******* 14-16yo book, and if the girls that read that book stupid enough to think that, there's no way they ******* a novel in that genre. she just got the ******* part because the director have the same last name (im guessing father/uncle). holy fck also the story ruined.

I was a pretty serious cynic about the movie when it came out since I've read the book god knows how many times and listen to the audio book even more in my car. Didn't watch the movie, only heard reviews that backed up claims of divergence from the novel. I did watch a tidbit of it but was immediately sick of it and turned it off. After a little over a year of its release, was on a plane with not a lot of movies to watch. Decided to kick back and watch the whole thing. Worst case scenario is I fall asleep. Honestly, I really enjoyed the movie. Was a very entertaining movie to watch. Wasn't World War Z but it was definitely worth watching. I ******* love that they removed the plane crash scene.

TL;DR - Would highly recommend but pretend the movie is called "Brad Pitt Zombie Movie" and you should be fine.

I get the feeling that the "Attack on Titan" film is going to be the next "The Last Airbender" film.

Books and movies are not the same, therefore direct translations of books to movies could be terrible. Book are a bit like languages. What I mean by this is that most languages use the same medium (alphabet, voice, etc), but then try to tell a spanish joke in italian, or another language. You mostly can't because they rely on the way they are spoken, like books rely on the imagination of the reader and movies rely on good actors. So I'm not saying that books and movies should be completely different, but only the concept and ideas of a book should be kept and thought about,l and if this is impossible, then the book shouldn't be a movie. Sorry

TL; DR: Italian jokes are bad movies

this should also apply to graphic novels and video games
