Valentine’s Day was Friday this year, in case you were in a coma or under a rock, I worked, super busy, the hubs was home preparing our V Day night. He is so great. He cleaned the house, went to the grocery store and picked-up some movies.
We had pesto chicken, butter-garlicky kale and baked potatoes all his ideas, I love this man. Of course no photos, I did make us some dessert though.
We watched Ender’s Game. Now the hubs and I listened to this audiobook from Audible.com It was the 20th Anniversary edition. This book has been out for 20 years and I am just now getting around to listening to it? Where the hell was I? It was a great story. I cared about the characters, when it ended I wanted more! Based off of the audiobook the movie should be great right? Nope. Not worth the red box price of $1.50. Book 5 out of 5 stars, movie 1 out of 5 stars.
They should have made it 2 movies to cover all the content. There were entire story lines eliminated and other cut to such a degree it was hard to follow while knowing more should be happening.
I usually do not like when books become movies, I grumble and bitch and the hubs says ‘it was fine.” This time he was all “ Is this how you felt over the Hunger Game? or Harry Potter?” Finally he got my point of view. Just took a few years to accomplish . The Hunger Games was probably one of the best book to movie transitions I have watched. Most just leave me disappointed.
How do you feel when a book gets made into a movie? Like it or hate it?
