BW50: 52 Books Bingo - Book to Movie

Happy Sunday!  Our next 52 Books Bingo category is Book to Movie.  I totally enjoy watching movies that are based on books to see what the writer or director will do with the subject matter. Will they stay true to the book or will they veer far to left or right field.   I've always wanted to read the book before seeing a movie based on the book whereas my son likes to see the movie first before he reads the book. 

I can see his point as there was one movie that veered so far to the left from the book that preconceived notions about the movie were shot to heck and I was disappointed.    John Grisham's The Runaway Jury was about cancer, how someone could get to the jurors and influence the trail, and making the tobacco industry pay.  The story was excellent. The movie was about a mass shooting, guns, jury tampering, and the gun industry.  Totally different subject matter, except for the jury tampering.  I had wanted to see the book as as written because the story was so intriguing, and was disappointed with the rewritten movie.   

But none the less, I enjoy watching books turned into movies from Philip Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep which the movie Blade Runner was based off of to the Harry Potter films to Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code to Schindler's List.  Join me in reading and watching Books to Movies or Television shows
