stamp - don't judge a book... by Daeg-Niht stamp - don't judge a book... by Daeg-Niht
edit - Alternate version: Don't judge a movie by its book as requested by =Aquarior.

edit - Changed the font.

I read that sentence into a Reader's Digest and I thought it would make a nice stamp.

Then I discovered that somebody had already done a similar stamp here, but I decided to submit this one anyway.

Template: [link]



edit - Thanks to everybody who faved this. I've stopped thanking you all on your profile because it was starting to take a lot of time.

City of Ember

There's more, I know there is

But City of Ember was the worst for me.

This is just so true... There are amazing writers out there who are called horrible just because of the movie released after it... it kills me.

how to train your dragon, one of the few exceptions where the movie outdid the book, they made it so different enough but based on the character's names, and BAM whole new universe that i am now stuck in due to gravitational forces

oh, a bit of a joke, i read the how to train your dragon series and watched the movies, they are both so far apart from eachother that you dont go saying "oh, dis shiz wasnt in the book" but close enough you can say "oh cool, so that's what they made [character] look like instead of [other character]" mainly tho it's cuz they made toothless 1: less useless, and 2: fricken awesome

As a rule of thumb, a movie based on a book will be hated by the ones who read it and loved by the ones who didn't.

Like n the Hunger Games, in the book Katniss gets the mockingjay pin for District 12's mayor's daughter, Madge. But in the movie, she gets it from a woman in the Hobb.

sometimes the movie adaptations are better than the book too. For one, I personally find the How to Train Your Dragon and How to Eat Fried Worms movies much better than the original books. I think those adaptations were given overhauls for a good reason, but that's me.

But then we have things like the Percy Jackson movies..... :puke: My problem with them is that they are stuck in the ungodly chasm between doing a direct adaptation and doing their own thing. They can't decide which direction they want to go, plus they are so stupidly written.

Exactly my thoughts on Twilight. Twilight is a great book. Just because the movie contained so much sex and whatnot doesn't mean the book is exactly the same - I've read Twilight and you'll just never guess how much the director had added so many things in the movie that's irrelevant to the book.

but still, jacob is obviously better than edward
