What movies did you think were better than the book?
This question was asked back in 2009. But a lot of new movies have come out and many new Flutherers are around.
Here are my picks:
Awakenings- The movie was touching and bittersweet. It was Oliver Sack’s first book and reads more like a medical journal article than a story. Sacks gets much better as he matures are a writer.
Stardust by Neil Gaiman- The book was OK, but I thought the movie had a more interesting plot to it and the visuals were more exciting to see on the screen rather than just read in the book.
The World According to Garp by John Irving – I really liked the book, but I think I fell in love with Robin Williams as Garp more than I actually liked the character himself. This was Williams’ first dramatic role and I thought he brought an earnest quality that I loved to it. Also John Lithgow as a MTF transexual was awesome.
So what are your picks?
