Top Ten Tuesday: Take It To The Big Screen!!

Hey, everyone!

It's time for The Broke and The Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday! This week's theme is Top Movie Book to Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To or Ten Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch.

I'm not big on movies or TV at all, so I'm going to do a couple from each topic and then picking the books I'd kill to see turned into movies.

I'm Looking Forward To...
The 5th Wave
I enjoyed this YA dystopian sci-fi book for the most part (though holy hell, too many POVs!), and I'm curious to see how things translate on film. 

Ugly Love
Oh my god I need this now!!! Last I heard they may have found their Tate.

I Still Need To Watch....

I wasn't a fan of the books, but the first movie was enjoyable for the most part, in a I-don't-really-have-to-pay-attention kind of way. I've heard this one is a hot mess, and oh my god, why didn't they use a wig for Tris?!

The Maze Runner
Never read the book, and not dying to see the movie, but I wouldn't object to watching it. 

Catching Fire
I really dislike the casting for this movie. Jennifer Lawrence was incredibly apathetic in the first movie, and Liam Hemsworth does nothing for me.
I hated the love triangle in the series (I was Team Gale, and hated Peeta, that whiny little cow), but this was my favorite book in the trilogy.  

I'd Kill To See These Be Movies or TV Shows....

The Fever Series
THIS!!! With David Gandy as Barrons, please. I don't care if he's a model; he is Barrons in my eyes.
I think Emma Stone could perfectly pull of the transformation Mac goes through during the series. 

The Night Huntress novels
This would be so epic!!

Sweet Filthy Boy
Ahhh! It would be such an incredible romantic chick flick!

I can't even imagine the mindfuck a movie adaptation of Nocte would be. 

The whole time I was reading Menagerie I was thinking "this would be a fantastic movie,".

Pretty much.

  1. I still need to see Insurgent too. I hope they do Ugly Love justice! Love that last little quote - so true!!

  2. I'm definitely excited about Ugly Love. That's about the only movie on my radar!

  3. I haven't read The 5th Wave but I'm definitely looking forward to the movie, and though I was disappointed by the first part of Mockingjay, I have high hopes for this second part. And I would die a happy woman if Barrons or Bones were ever brought to the big or small screen. Though can you imaging trying to cast them? It would be nearly impossible.

  4. I really liked 5th Wave, I am sure it will make a great movie. I still haven't watched the last HG movie. I would love to see the Fever Series on the screen and most recently Illuminae. That would make a fantastic film.

  5. I'd be dancing if Fever series was TV/movies and they kept it close to the books! :D

  6. Insurgent wasn't bad at all and she did cut her hair off in the book, too. Don't waste your time on Maze Runner it was terrible. I also really hated all of the Hunger Games movies!

  7. I never read the Divergent books OR saw the films. I'm just not at all interested. haha I do like the Hunger Games films.

  8. Yes...I still need to figure out how to drag my husband to Ugly Love.

  9. It's so weird how people see things differently! I love Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss better than book Katniss as Katniss. And BLAH to Gale. Peeta (movie Peeta, not book Peeta) is an adorable little wounded baby bird. I liked the 2nd book best as well though... but the first movie was my fav. so far. I hope you still watch the other movies and like them better than you did so far :( Thanks for stopping by my list :)

  10. The Maze Runner is pretty good, the movie is definitely better than the book.
