Random Thursday: Top 3 Books Turned to Movies

Linking up with Em, Lin and Meg for Random Thursday.


I love this week's random topic!  I am such a movie whore, so I had to jump on board with this one. :-)

I warn you, this speaks to the geek in me.  Enjoy.


{Lord of the Rings}

Lord of the Rings is fantastic!  The book itself is extremely detailed, and the movies were done extremely well.  They earned every single Academy Award they won, and probably deserved to win a few more. :-)

{The Hobbit}

Ok, ok, I know, this is only part of the book.  They still have two more intallments to release in the next few years.  However, this first installment was so incredibly good; I know the rest will follow suit.  The book itself is pretty small (only 330 pages) so I know additional details and scenes were added to the movie, but it all worked well together. 

{Harry Potter Series}

The first movie was amazing; the second didn't disappoint; and so on and so forth.  Were they perfect? No.  Did they include everything that should have been included from the books? Nope.  BUT--they are movies that were well done under the circumstances, and I couldn't wait to go see each one when they came out.  They are still some of my favorite movies.

Good stuff right there, folks. :-)

Happy Thursday....we're almost to the weekend!!

I am a huge fan of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. I have read the books several times, in German and English and I never get bored. :)

I have to say, I didn't like the Hobbit! They added far too much to the story - probably to make it into three movies.

I thought the LOTR movies were better than the books, but I feel like they're dragging out the Hobbit movies far too long. :( Oh well, you win some, you lose some!

I did enjoy the LOTR movies but I haven't seen the others.

These were such great movies! I havent read any of these books...yeah, I should probably get on that since the hubs is always raving about them. My favorite movies have to be the Harry Potter ones because they were so damn intriguing. Love anything that has to do with magic haha.

Thanks so much for joining us today & linking up!
