Question of this week

 Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?

My Answer


There are some books whose movie adaptations, I feel, are better than the book itself (majority of the books are actually better than the movies, though!). I'd mention one here, and that is Life of Pi by Yann Martel.


The book is beautiful, no doubt it is beautifully written. But the movie is, however, better, at least I feel so. I read the book first and hence I was very interested and excited about watching the movie. The 3-D movie brought life and soul to the story. I loved everything about it, every bit of it. The acting, screenplay, cinematography, music, sound effect and of course the direction. Everything was so perfect. It was a wonderful experience and an absolute treat to watch it. And that's why I liked the movie slightly better than the book.

  13. 3D has definitely been a game-changer with movies. I went and saw The Croods with a friend and her kids - the youngest didn't realise that the sparks coming off the fire weren't real and kept trying to catch them.
