Hey all! Ally and Evan are back this week to deliver you another video blog.
This week we’re hitting the topic of books turned into films and primarily, our favorites. Hollywood is big into adaptations recently (if you couldn’t tell) and with the recent releases of Enders Game & The Book Thief and with the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Desolation of Smaug and the newest Divergent trailer, it seems that star studded town has gone young adult literary crazy.
Despite some of the recent shortcomings that don’t showcase good adaptions (The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments) every few years there are books that’s switch into big screen territory seem effortless: Atonement, The Secret Garden, Harry Potter, To Kill a Mockingbird, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest etc. Sometimes the right filmmaker comes around, grabs the source material by the reins and completely creates something amazing with it.
So here are Evan and Ally’s picks, let us know what yours are and what she shouldn’t have left out?
