Just take it off the page and put it in the talking pictures…
It really should be that simple, shouldn’t it? Someone did the hard part already. They wrote the story, characters, plotlines, and world. Okay. I’ll admit it’s not that easy, but sometimes it is. This week we talk about book to movie adaptations. Sometimes they are really good, but, shockingly enough, sometimes they are bad. We didn’t care for the way Spielberg adapted Ready Player One. The material was there, just put it on film. I won’t get into it here because we tackled it well on the show. Sometimes the material deserves better treatment, and this was one of those times. Let us know in the comments what you guys think about this subject. Do you have a favorite book that was butchered by a movie? Or do you have a book that was adapted well? In my opinion, sometimes it’s better to have something rather than nothing. I’m glad we have this version of Ready Player One, but I sure do wish it was better.
