I have been feeling a little uninspired lately to blog and I was trying to come up with some ideas so I was going through my old blog posts and I saw that I haven’t talked about book-to-screen adaptations in a while and I thought it was perfect, so here we are!
My Best Friend Exorcism
I have been meaning to watch this since I first heard about the book being turned into a movie because I have read and really liked some of Grady Hendrix’s books, but I have been putting it off because I’m waiting to read the book first. This is the story of two teen best friends, Abby and Gretchen, who grapple with a demon that takes up residence in Gretchen’s body.
I just found out about this movie and not only is the subject matter interesting, but it also seems like this has a similar style to Spotlight, which is a movie I loved, so I’m definitely watching and I’ll probably read the book afterward. This movie is based on the New York Times investigation that exposed Harvey Weinstein’s history of abuse and sexual misconduct against women.
I just finished reading this book and it was thought-provoking, relatable, honest and so well-written, so I can’t wait to watch the movie. This is the story of the author’s experience trying to get an abortion in France in the 60s when it was illegal.
Mr. Malcom’s List
I hadn’t heard about the book or the movie until a couple months ago when I saw a review for the movie, and it looks exactly like the type of movie I would enjoy. I may read the book after watching it. This movie is about a man who is searching for a near-perfect wife, who will meet the qualifications on his list. But when he jilts a woman, she convinces her friend to play the role of his ideal match and deceive him.
I didn’t know this movie was based on a book and honestly, I’m not interested in reading the book, but the movie looks really good and I have heard nothing but good things about it, so I really want to watch it. This is the story of five assassins aboard a bullet train careening across Japan, who find out that their missions have something in common.
This post was already scheduled when I found out about this series and I had to come and add it. I’m equal parts excited and nervous about this adaptation since I really loved the book. This is the story of two cash-strapped twenty-somethings who share a bed but have never met.
