Top Ten Tuesday #17

Today's Topic: Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!


1.Percy Jackson
Percy. Is. Supposed. To. Be. TWELVE! In the movie, the actors look like they are eighteen. Plus, um, where did Kronos go? In the book the god has a major part. And Annabeth's hair seems to have gone brown. (It's supposed to be blonde!)

2.Ella Enchanted
The movie was totally wrong. I don't remember much... just that it was not the Ella Enchanted I knew.

Sorry to all the twilight movie fans! They are okay... but I wish the main character Bella would act happier. She is happy and sarcastic as ever in the books!


Harry Potter
They start at the right age! (See Percy Jackson above.) Plus, the movies are magical... with good acting! Such a great cast!

Wow... that is the only "Best" I can think of... That's sad...Um... I guess I will create a "Looking forward to" to make up for this one lousy "best". Apparently it is hard for a movie adaptation to impress me.

Looking Forward To


City of Bones
Yay! I hope the movie is better than the trailers. I didn't really get the "Jace" vibe from the actor.

Blood Sisters: Vampire Academy
I actually wasn't a big fan of the first book, but I ADORED the rest. I wonder how this will turn out.


  1. I don't feel Jace from that actor either. I guess we will have to wait and see how it turns out.

  2. Percy Jackson is on a lot of worst lists (mine included) and the age thing is one of the things that really bugged me about it as well. My TTT.

  3. Twilight made my worst, too. I'm definitely excited for Divergent. Great list!

  4. Great top ten! Looking forward to those movies too, hope they are good:)

    My TTT:

  5. Good list, I love Harry Potter. I also agree with you about Percy Jackson and Twilight although the thing with Annabeth's hair doesn't brother all that much but the age up and no mention of Kronos angers me.

  6. Gahhhh I can't wait for those three either! They're going to be SO GOOD! Mortal Instruments is so close and I'm definitely going to the midnight premiere :) Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

  7. Confession time? I watched Ella Enchanted before I ever knew there was a movie. I liked it only because woohoo Anne Hathaway! :D But after reading the book, I understand why it would be such a bad adaptation. It doesn't have the little magical charm and Ella's journey isn't as interesting in the movie.

  8. Twilight was on my worst list too. I liked the books, just not the movies.
