WHAT WHAT THAT DEMON BLOGGER IS BACK WITH ANOTHER PROBABLY TOO OPINIONATED DISCUSSION!!
Cool, so now that that’s out of the way… Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with a new discussion in which I blab on about why I love book adaptations!
ADAPTATIONS I LOVE
a books books and books
I love book adaptations and I have no shame about it, but I know that quite a lot of people are not totally fond of them. You can read about me defending adaptations against the haters here.
So, why do I love book adaptations and feel the need to defend them against the haters? (probably because a defence is the best offence)
- They bring your faves to life & it can also bring amazing rep that you might not usually get on screen, to the screen. For example, I never thought I would be able to see a high school “rom-com” style movie about a gay kid but hey, 20-gay-teen is real.
- Without book adaptations, we wouldn’t have Gene Wilder’s take on Willy Wonka and quite frankly the world would be a darker place without that movie. But, I guess, going by that logic, maybe we do live in a certain hell because we have to deal with the monstrosity that is Where The Wild Things Are. Honestly, whoever made that movie should go sit in a corner and think about what they’ve done.
- Also, just straight up, if we didn’t have adaptations, the MCU wouldn’t exist and neither would the DCEU (though, I wouldn’t exactly be complaining about that one). We would have no superhero stories – which means no 60’s Batman and no emo Peter Parker dancing in the street and now I’m gonna cry, you guys.
- I love seeing my favourite stories told on screen (tv, mini-series or movies), whether the adaptation is good or not. I love that someone thought a book was good enough to bring it to the big screen, imagine being that author and getting that call??? The excitement!
Basically, I love adaptations and I wish more of the reading community would too!
