Films or books?

Hello guys, today we’re going to talk about books that became movies. There are many books that made it to the big screen. Some are very good like The Godfather, others… well they aren’t  so good. In this post were going to talk about books that we read and the films that came from them, if they’re good or not, so please stay with us and read the post till the end.

The Lord of The Rings
There are several books that became movies but not even Harry Potter was so similar to the original as The Lord of The Rings. The nine hours that you spend watching the movies is like seeing the documents that prove the destruction of THE RING. Of course there are some differences, some useless characters were erased and the story flows much faster, but to people who read the book seeing them on the big screen was awesome, and those who didn’t, would enjoy the movies too.

The Davinci Code

Is a Great story and film but has a lot of bad critics because many people don’t like to question religious ways. The book and the film present another identity of Jesus Christ. The film is similar to other “films from books” because a book is a complete story and a film is a resume. But the film is good and worth watching.

Percy Jackson

The Book is very good. It talks about a boy who’s the son of Poseidon, god of the seas. Because of his father, the boy has good adventures in a world of Greek mythology. The book is good because you use a lot of imagination while reading it. The book’s author Rick Riordan was very creative in every detail of each book.
The film wasn’t very faithful to the book and was very poorly done. It was a summary of two books of the saga, with big differences as taking the car in the hotel to escape. In conclusion, you’d better read the books.

The twilight saga is about the relationship between a human girl and a vampire told in four books, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. These four books became five films because the last book was divided in two films.
 The books are better because they ask for imagination and they’re more complex. However the films are still very good. The photography is an important part of the film because it matches the melancholic atmosphere, as well as the music. All these elements make the film good entertainment.

  Do you agree with the reviews? Do you know other films from books?
