Top Ten Tuesday (#31)


HOSTED BY: The Broke and The Bookish
DESCRIPTION:  Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

This week’s theme: Top Ten Facts About Us

And by facts, I mean…

Top Ten  FIVE Favorite Book-to-Movie Adaptations

Except I don’t mean the well-known ones.  (Okay, there will be a FEW you’ve heard of here, buuuut overall? Still not the ones that are talked about regularly)

I just LOOOOOVE this TV movie?  I don’t even know if I can explain why, exactly…but Hatter and Alice?  DEFINITELY OTP after this adaptation.

WHY?! DOES NOBODY?!?! Talk about this movie?!?!?!?!?! Like… I never hear anything about it, and it’s just the greatest thing eveeeeeer!  If you tell me you don’t love this movie, you’re lying.  Case closed.

This movie, guys.  THIS.  MOVIE.  I mean, do I really need to say more than that?  Really?!  It’s snarky, sassy, witty with wordplay….and based on Shakespeare.  So much win!

For one…it’s Disney, and it’s GORGEOUS.  Like, you know how most of the time, Disney sequels go WAY down in quality?!  Yeah, this one?! NOT AT ALL!  It’s absolutely stunning, and it’s Romeo and Juliet inspired, and… I love it more than the original.  Which is CRAZY TALK, guys–but I’m not taking it back.  You can’t make me!

I could be here all NIGHT if I picked out more than these GIFs.  I read this book, too, and guys.  GUYS.  It’s WAY different, and yet somehow the heart of the book and the heart of the movie are the same.  They are perfect separate AND together…and I love them.  I love them.  But this movie is also the CREEPIEST THING EVER, okay?  I cannot–I repeat, CANNOT–listen to Always On My Mind, by Elvis Presley, ever again the same way.  This movie ruined that song for me–I get cold chills every single time!

What movie adaptations make the top of your favorites list, and why?!   Feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments, or link me to your own Top Ten Tuesday!

Until next time, happy book-ing!

  1. I loved 10 Things I Hate About You! It was filmed at Stadium High School in Tacoma, WA. I’ve driven by that school so much! I went to see the movie at the theater by myself when I was in college. I actually told the guy (who I didn’t know) next to me that I went to school with one of the extras. I think he thought I was crazy, even if it was true! LOL. Nice list!

  2. I LOVE 10 Things I Hate About You! Such a classic high school movie. Also, I do love Hook very, very much. Robin Williams will always be one of my favorite actors. Practical Magic is such any amazing movie, too. I haven’t read the book though!

  3. That Alice one looks SUPER familiar but I can’t tell if I’ve seen it… I LOVE the Tinman show, I’ve seen it like 10 times 😀 random thought, sorry, back on track. I’ve seen all of these but 10 things I hate about you O_O woah, I should watch it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Hook one 🙂 and the Alice in Wonderland Tim Burton movies, I love how magical they are 🙂 Nice list! I remember Practical Magic freaked me out when I was littler.
