Book Challenge Day 30- Favorite Book Turned Movie

Posted on

There was absolutely zero competition for this post. While I’ve seen some pretty good movies based on books I’ve read, nothing compares to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I honestly might like the movies better than the books- something I’ve never come close to saying about any other book/movie. The movies were just done beautifully. Peter Jackson was dedicated to doing justice to these remarkable books and I am in awe of what he was able to accomplish. There was very little was missing from the films- even the little details were accurate. My only complaint was that he killed Boromir off at the end of the first movie when he actually dies in the first chapter of the second book. While this doesn’t seem like a huge deal, it was a rude awakening to me. Me, who had only read the first book prior to seeing the first movie. Total panic mode set in as I thought the movie was ruined and I wouldn’t be able to see the rest of the films because the director was taking such liberties to kill off characters that didn’t actually die in the books. The whole 30 minutes it took for me to get home and read about Boromir’s death were painful. But that’s truly my only complaint. Not a bad review from someone who goes into movies based on books thinking “this is going to be abysmal- nothing can compare to what I’ve read.”

About Jaclyn

I’m a digital copywriter at an advertising agency- think Peggy from Mad Men but remove the print ads and add a website. Between my family, friends and job I hear a lot of interesting things. I’ve decided to share them and how they inspire me on this blog. There’s no theme or goal in mind and I promise I will not update with any kind of regularity. But hopefully whatever I do put up here will be entertaining, or entertaining enough to add to the “procrastinating at work by checking every mediocre website on the internet” list.
