We all have seen the movies the Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Fault in our Stars. They were all made beautifully, and a lot of thought and detail went into those films. They were books originally but they were enjoyed so much they made them into films. I have nothing against the films or the fact that they don’t always follow the books. I am upset at the fact that some people take genuinely good books and make them into low-budget films.
I think it was a few months ago I wrote about how one of my favourite books was made into a low-budget film and how they totally made it look stupid. I was so upset that a really good book like Maximum Ride was made to look like a film about bird like children running away from a system they didn’t want to be apart of. When really it was all about adventure, love, independence, and friendship. It was just sad to see that people will just watch this and be like if the film was like this, why should the book be any better?
The reason I’m writing this post is because I watched another low-budget film (no surprise) about one of my other favourite book. It’s called Fallen and it was written beautifully. If you haven’t read it It’s about fallen angels and how they fall in love with mortals but one angel is cursed and his lover gets killed and reincarnated every time. Silly, I know but it’s actually really good maybe you will like it. Anyways, they keep taking these books and make the look stupid. To be honest nobody knows if a movie will make, they just film, put it out there, and cross their fingers and hope it does well. 90% of the movies made from books end up pretty good and both book and movie sales go up.
I just wish someone believed that these two book would make amazing films if they tried hard enough. I’m not saying that the directors and producers didn’t try, I’m saying I wish they had enough believers to help them make it the best film they can.
That’s all I have to say about this topic, if you want you can follow me on twitter @InfinityxBlogs.
