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.

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.

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

Preach it! They messed up Percy Jackson with the movies. I mean c'mon! Percy was younger in the first book. I haven't seen Sea of Monsters and not planning to.

Rick Riordon won't even watch the movie. Didn't show up at premier day because the producers made him mad. He tried to get it like the books, but you know… stupid producers and directors...

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON.

Seriously. The movies were crap and nothing like the book. Everything about the movies and the tv series based on the books disgusts me. And then when someone says they like the movie more because toothless looks cooler in the movie...

*RAGE*

I don't remember pretty much from the books. Should re-read them. But most of the time I was just annoyed by Toothless. :XD: But yeah, he's cooler in the movie. They totally changed everything for the movie, though. :/ I mean... The "everyone owns a dragon" concept changed to "everyone hates dragons". Ugh. And Toothless being pretty much pathetic (I don't really remember much about him except that he was small and toothless, I guess he was better at something?) compared to the other dragons was a big part of the books.

Yeah, it was. The books are really funny. I used to read them all the time when I was nine or so. :)

They are very good books, but so many people don't realize they exist, and most people judge them based on the horrible tv series and the movies.

There's 12 or 13 books, I think. The books are children's books, but my parents love them and I still read them, they have an excellent sense of humor and actually get quite dark later on in the series.
