What?!
They made Harry Potter tv series ?!?!
User avatar #28 to #12 - captainoptimist (07/24/2013) [-]
Goblet of Fire was the worst one. Hands down. OOTP was slightly better. HBP slightly better. Then they finally got their **** together with the last two movies. I was still annoyed with the plot changes, but at least they were good movies.

The prisoner of Azkaban was the worst in my opinion. followed by the fourth
User avatar #45 to #29 - yusay (07/24/2013) [-]
Really? I thought that Azkaban was really good. Followed most of the book and did scenes very well.
User avatar #314 to #45 - clittyrubquick (07/25/2013) [-]
Prisoner of Azkaban was my favourite, right after HBP
#101 to #45 - finances (07/24/2013) [-]
I really like Azkaban as well. My least favorite is HBP. I feel like the whole christmas-burning-burrow scene was so completely out of the blue, as well as the stupid intro scene with the café girl. Also, I can never really let the casting of Slughorn go. In the books, he is clearly described as short, very fat, bald and with a giant moustache. in the movie he's tall, slim, has a full head of hair and no moustache whatsoever. Like, come on??
#109 to #101 - yusay (07/24/2013) [-]
HBP, OoTF and GoF cut out way too much and changed too many scenes to be enjoyable for me. The only thing I could commend any of them on is that GoF did the scene in the graveyard very well and I actually preferred the Dragon event in the movie to the book (book felt a little anticlimactic).

His appearance was very off, but I will admit his acting was quite good. And I did like the appearance of Snape and Sirius in the movies to the books.
#121 to #109 - finances (07/24/2013) [-]
Oh, Jim Broadbent nailed the character, that's not an issue for me. I really like virtually all the portrayals character-wise, with the exception of certain parts of Gambon's Dumbledore. And most of the other characters looked fine (if you can look away from the whole eye-colour thing).

It's a little hard to say this, as a life-long fan of the series, but the movies are actually not that good. The first two I think they really nailed, as well as the last two. The four in the middle, though...

User avatar #123 to #121 - yusay (07/24/2013) [-]
I've been a lifelong fan as well, and I can agree with you. I thought the first three movies were quite good and so were the last two, but that was it. GoF, OotF and HBP just had too much content to cover and it hurt the films.
User avatar #284 to #123 - ninjaspartan (07/25/2013) [-]
Well, if you don't concern yourself with all the content you expected to see and instead just looked at the content presented to you in the movie they'd be a bit more enjoyable. That being said, OotP and PoA are the only ones that are still hurting from that pov. Even then, it's only because they were too rushed. I felt that PoA really killed Sirius' introduction as a character with the way the pacing ran, and OotP was just clearly hacked into bits. While the book for HBP was obviously much better, I still find HPB very enjoyable.
User avatar #379 to #28 - gammajk (07/25/2013) [-]
Seriously? OOTP was the biggest piece of **** in the entire series.
User avatar #456 to #379 - captainoptimist (07/25/2013) [-]
I think you could argue for either GoF or OOTP, but GOF just cut out soooooo much and focused on the most stupid, inane parts of the book...I think it's unforgivable.
User avatar #466 to #456 - gammajk (07/25/2013) [-]
Agreed, but OOTP just felt like they said " **** the books, let's do whatever we want". It was also the longest book with the shortest movie - they left out a LOT. I haven't read the books in years now, but I remember when the movie came out it pissed me off into oblivion because of what they did to it. GOF didn't get that reaction from me, maybe because there were actually good parts in it (I liked the harry vs dragon scene in the movie) even though it left out a lot but OOTP just felt like an all around worse movie.
User avatar #134 to #28 - jerichowatch (07/25/2013) [-]
See, I've been told that if you did not read the books, OOTP was extremely hard to follow in the theatres.
User avatar #256 to #134 - jaggedherp (07/25/2013) [-]

Richard Harris was the Dumbledore from the books. Michael Gambon understandably went in a different direction, but it really is too bad Richard Harris couldn't finish the series. He WAS Dumbledore!

Ever read a Harry Potter book? There's so much happening in one book, it's completely possible to break up the books into episodes.

User avatar #7 to #6 - threadz (07/24/2013) [-]
There is a lot in each book, but the story isn't laid out in such a way that an episodic presentation would be very good unless the story was changed wildly. and most people don't like it when you change a story while adapting it to a movie
User avatar #8 to #7 - awildniglet (07/24/2013) [-]
I don't know, I can see it as a mini series possibly. They were considering making one after the first movie. The chapters close and open up as if an episode would
It wouldn't work now because there are movies out and almost everyone has read the book. I think it's possible though, without changing the story even
User avatar #9 to #8 - threadz (07/24/2013) [-]
Maybe, but I doubt it. a story designed to work as a single unit doesn't often adapt well to being served in parts.
#103 to #1 - DrollHumor (07/24/2013) [-]
Well that's how True Blood started.

I haven't watched past the first season however, since they deviated from the original story just by adding Jessica and screwing up who made Eric. I assume it's gotten much worse.

One series I could REALLY see making it as on television is the Inheritance Cycle. Four really long books, changing POVs. The movie for Eragon is an abominaton to pop culture in general, but I think a well-casted series overlooked by Paolini could really shine and make up for it. Maybe even an animated series.

Books will always be better than movie/TV adaptations. When you read your imagination is doing all the work. Your brain creates the world described in the book. Creates the characters in your own image which. What world you saw in the book is always different than what someone else saw. Because you imagined it your way whereas a director did it from his world.

I like to imagine actors for roles when I read books now so if they are made I have something to who I can compare that is realistic.
#22 to #10 - jaymax (07/24/2013) [-]
Books are definitely better in some aspects yes, but in movies and sometimes TV series's visually seeing some parts of the books can really help out a lot. An example of this is the famous AGOT, aka A Song of Ice and Fire, some people didn't know that a certain character was homosexual even after reading the books.

There's no doubt that you really do need to read the books though, they almost always contain tons of things that have to be left out due to time constraints or some other problem.
User avatar #273 to #22 - azraelthemage (07/25/2013) [-]
Not to mention some movies/shows leave out details that should be relevant but they assume the viewer has read the book.
#57 to #10 - catsaremyreligion (07/24/2013) [-]
Well there's also the rare occasions when the book is just horribly written, and then a director/writer comes and sees its potential as a movie and makes it into a better story. Forrest Gump was an awful book to read. it was just dull, but the movie was a masterpiece mostly because of the style and how the story was rewritten.
User avatar #66 to #10 - davve (07/24/2013) [-]
This is why you don't read books.

Because one day someone will make a movie adaptation and you will be pissed off.

Why not have the author direct the movie? I feel like if the author is calling the shots, it shouldn't deviate too far from what the book says.
User avatar #213 to #10 - hates (07/25/2013) [-]
Also, they have to make the movie easier to follow for dumber fans, and for the international audience. Also due to the international audience, they have to omit some parts that may be offensive. Like how World War Z left out the fact that China told their citizens "Oh no, nothing's wrong. Everything's fine, your sister turning into a zombie and trying to eat your face isn't a big problem." They left that out partially due to how it fit, and partially to make sure they didn't offend China.
User avatar #264 to #213 - azraelthemage (07/25/2013) [-]
Not to mention that that China's way of dealing with the Great Panic caused a civil war.

one time I watched a movie and then read the book that the movie was based off of. I liked doing that because the book had enough differences to make it still interesting and I could visualize the actors from the movie in the book scenes. Its a nice way to handle it and when finished, I thought that BOTH the book and the movie were great in their own ways

Eragon is largely 10/10 like star wars with dragons.

But Eldest, Brisingr and Inheritance are all a lot better than Eragon (probably due to the author maturing; I mean, he WAS fifteen when he began writing Eragon, and nineteen when it was published.) and he began incorporating original ideas like the power of names and the eldunari. Each new book of the series improved it, and even though it definitely borrows heavily from other stories, mainly star wars and LOTR, it has a lot of original ides, interesting characters and is very well written.
#115 to #110 - dingojohn (07/24/2013) [-]
>10/10 like star wars with dragons
I lol'd

I read the first two, and I think i wrote the third one as well. I was not impressed, and I don't think I shall ever finish the books. I will continually dislike them, and express this honest opinion if anybody ever ask me about the subject, but to each his own, if you enjoy the story, I am glad.

As long as we can agree the movie was one of the worst adaptations I can think off, right after Avatar: TLA and Dragonball.
User avatar #259 to #115 - sundizzle (07/25/2013) [-]
It's exactly star wars with dragons. I'm not saying that's a bad thing. They're both written with the same "hero's tale" in mind.

But seriously, I highly reccomend you finish the series. It didn't take me very long and I can guarantee the 3rd and 4th books are better than the first two. By the time he starts the 3rd book, you can tell how much Paolini has matured. It starts off with the most gory scene imaginable for the series. There's a ******* priest that is only a torso and a head bleeding from where his limbs would be into a giant pool of blood.
That's metal as **** .
But my point is, the 4th book even gave me chills to a certain point. The ending is one you wouldn't really expect and the journey is so greatly written.

The movie: 0/10
The books: 9001/10

I guess that's all down to opinions, I won't yell on you for that either.

User avatar #207 to #110 - meganinja ONLINE (07/25/2013) [-]
I don't know, I didn't really like Inheritance that much. It kinda reminds me of some dragonball-esque moment, where everything's SO powerful, that you can no longer solve your fights with fighting. I thought the nuke part was cool though.
#192 to #110 - anon (07/25/2013) [-]
I started writing a book at 15 too, and yes, this is just my opinion with my head up my ass, but so far it's looking 100x better than anything Paolini wrote. (Currently 16 and halfway through draft 2.)
He had so many useless sidestories that went nowhere, the ending took like 200 pages to tie up all the loose ends which he could have effectively done in a single chapter, and he described unnecessary things for sooo long. I remember a bead of sweat being described for like half a page or more, but could be wrong.
#221 to #47 - anon (07/25/2013) [-]

When I was younger, I finished the first book, and was introduced to Runescape by a childhood friend. I named my character Eregon160 because I made a typo and only realized when I finished tutorial island. I didn't wanna make a new one so I dissmissed it, w.e Eragons cool as **** . I even found some ***** with the name Murtagh, **** was cool. Then the movie came out. And everyone who knew about it harassed me about it like if it was my fault. Good times.

No, unacceptable. That ending, in as few words as possible, was gay. Arya, the hot Elf, was supposed to get with Eragon. Especially since she became a dragon rider. BUT, instead, she becomes Queen of the elves... which would be acceptable... If Dragon Riders were allowed a position of power within the elven society! That was unacceptable!!!

Ha maybe Christopher Paolini was like **** this **** , I'm going to make every single person rage at the end. To be fair though he was in high school when he started the series, so perhaps he already had the ending set that they would not end up together like everyone wanted.

Summary of ending
The end has Jonas escaping with the baby Gabriel. He keeps the child warm by transferring warm memories into the child (But losing them himself). He travels only so far on his bicycle before he faces snow, but manages to find a sled in the midst of all of it. He believes to hear music and see lights in the distance.

I thought it was all irritating. The premise made no sense, the characters were boring, I honestly couldn't care for a single thing.
I really just hated it in middle school.. especially because I was in the middle of trying to read a different series I was enjoying about the time this book was assigned..
I was reading Redwall at the time.

I'm willing to thumb you up and agree.

The concept was interesting but as for many of us it didn't quite nail it, same with me; however it seems like we have opinions that are the opposite of the collective here at FunnyJunk so we will soon be executed by the horde of red thumb executioners.

Personally if people want a more "adult" book that has a more "realistic" topic than what The Giver was - I'd recommend 1984 by George Orwell.
User avatar #387 to #386 - darthblam (07/25/2013) [-]
I'm not a fan of realistic books, or even things over modern subjects..
When I read a book I love a good old fantasy adventure or some sort of sci-fi.
For example, I've read the LotR trilogy, loved it.
I've read the Dragonlance Chronicles, a very good series. It has probably the most bad ass wizard in any fantasy series.
The Forgotten Realms books about Drizzt. A very bad ass character.
And a number of books for lore's sake on Warcraft 3, Starcraft, and even Halo books.
I especially love these because they give a lot of extra insight into the characters you see in the games.. it makes the games themselves mean a bit more to me.

What about games with amazing lore into movies?
User avatar #342 to #267 - heartlessrobot (07/25/2013) [-]
No, because a movie from a game like Skyrim would have everyone bitching. "But I joined the Imperials, not the Stormcloaks" "Hey, I didn't destroy the Dark Brotherhood" "Seriously? Who the hell would have killed Paarthurnax?" "I did thief playstyle, not Battle Mage". Games with good lore often give you too many choices to make one movie, they'd have to have you fill out a 100000 question questionnaire so your specific movie went with what you did.

It's crazy as hell but not much like Ranger's Apprentice (amazing series by the way). Basically, this kid lives in the slums of a medieval world and crap goes down. He ends up becoming basically death incarnate. It's an extremely messed up and sad story of that kid as he grows up being a grim reaper of an assassin and his attempt at holding on to the last of his humanity.

15 year old orphin who's been dreaming of being a knight all his life gets shut down after being too scrawny to handle the training. In his annoyance, he sneaks into the castle to try and convince the battlemaster otherwise but is caught by the ranger assigned to their castle, Halt. He then decides that with practice, the boy could become a great ranger. The entire first book is about his transition from a frightened small kid to a complete badass of the shadows. And it's a much better ending than the Shadows series. Sorry if that's a bit wordy but that was my favorite book series for a loooong time. They're only about 200 pages and there's 10 books last I checked.

The series is about 3 people Arlen, Leesha and Rojer. They live in a world where demons rise from the core of the earth to the surface every night to hunt and kill humans. The only defense the humans have are wards, symbols that convert the magic of demons into a unbreakable shield. This has everyone on their houses and humans don't go out at night because the ancient battle wards have been lost to mankind. Arlen the protagonist of the story sets out become a messenger, someone who travels between cities for trade and all sorts other things and the only people who sleep outside, and recover those battle wards.

That was truly the best thing I ever read. to be honest I always hoped Kylar would go for Vi but I knew that was not going to happen. That's also why I liked the ending because it gave that opening.

User avatar #198 to #194 - KayRed (07/25/2013) [-]
Hopefully who ever makes the movie realizes that's this isn't sparkly fanatsy, but gritty fantasy and they cast accordingly. Kylar and Logan aren't gonna be super models.
User avatar #201 to #198 - tormain (07/25/2013) [-]
I hope so, I mean they touch on some seriously messed up material like cannibalism and the maiming and death of children. that's not something you can just throw glitter on and make it pretty. These books are blood, fear, brutality and a **** load of sex. You can't just make that some modern day fun for everyone movie or even better a series.

User avatar #206 to #202 - tormain (07/25/2013) [-]
Precisely, that why I don't really see it turning into a movie (contradicting what I said earlier but still). A series would be much more effective also to ensure no or little loss of the original story and will be able to show much more gore than a movie could. Like Game of Thrones (which I'm currently reading book 3) or spartacus.

There is no such thing as "perfect casting" because everyone's vision of a character is different than another person's. But, when a book doesn't describe a character's race. People usually automatically assume that he or she is white. So most if not all characters end up being white in the movie adaptation.

I think what you mean is that while there is such a thing as perfect casting in a movie which is made first and foremost as a movie, there is no such thing as perfect casting if you're making a movie from a book.

they changed the story of the book to the point it ***** with the series, one of the main points of the series is that the gods are too lazy and busy to keep track of their children and ever contact them, there is no rule they can't.

-Hades wasn't a villain in the books, he also had his item stolen
-The quest wasn't for the pearls, he is just plain given them
-Ares was absent (major villain in the book), along with his daughter (rival to percy, -and one of the main characters of the second book)
-chronos was absent
-grover was a timid pussy, not a baller
-percy was younger (seriously, 12 in the books)
-The master bolt was said to make every nuke ever made put together look like a firecracker in the book, in the movie it barely singed the wings off the shoes

I recently finished Fellowship of the Ring.   
I wanted to watch the movie first but I decided to get into reading, so my first thought was &quot;why not read Lord of the Rings?&quot;   
   
And so I did   
I'm a slow ass reader with barely any skill in reading books so this took me a pretty long time to finish.   
It ended up being one of the most enchanting books I've ever read, and has actually helped my literacy.   
   
I was so excited for the movie, it was great but it missed out on so many scenes that kind-of bind the story together and help further explain certain parts.   
Also some other things that bothered me:   
-I wasn't that comfortable with Aragorn's voice, through out the book I expected him to have a more masculine voice (kind of like how they made Boromir's)   
-Sam's voice, I liked him so much in the book, yet his voice just... it just kind of ruined it for me   
- Boromir's death, I'm guessing they jumped to a scene in the second book since I didn't find that in the first one. This really pissed me off since he was one of my favorite characters

I was so excited for the movie, it was great but it missed out on so many scenes that kind-of bind the story together and help further explain certain parts.
Also some other things that bothered me:
-I wasn't that comfortable with Aragorn's voice, through out the book I expected him to have a more masculine voice (kind of like how they made Boromir's)
-Sam's voice, I liked him so much in the book, yet his voice just... it just kind of ruined it for me
- Boromir's death, I'm guessing they jumped to a scene in the second book since I didn't find that in the first one. This really pissed me off since he was one of my favorite characters

I hate how they made frodo so pathetic in the movie, he doesnt really do anything brave, and in the major battles he just ends up getting stabbed. I really wanted him to at least attack some orcs or stuff, rather than constanlty being a burden.

unless it's on a premium channel its going to still be written in a way that its chapters fit into 30 mins to an hour, and there will be cuts and fill ins to the plot

not to mention it will probably be changed to appeal to a tart audience

Shut up man! If Steven king hears this then were going to end up being responsible for a three day horror where you will force yourself not eat drink or use a bathroom because you can't look away!

I'd throw money at anything King asked me to if it meant getting "The Stand" made into an HBO quality television series. (Not that really tame, cheap-budgeted, and badly acted original series.)

They really strayed from the book if you ask me, I read the whole thing and was scandalized to be honest... mfw I read the ending in the book
User avatar #353 to #351 - neutralgray (07/25/2013) [-]
It's easily in my top ten favorites.

The book, def. I was just sayin' that the ending actually got me sad.

King usually does that though, so...

Still waiting on that Dark Tower HBO series.

I remember hearing rumours that they were gonna make a Skulduggery Pleasant movie but it's on hold because Derek Landly doesn't want it to be animated but live action, so they're trying to work on a decent looking skeletal actor/CGI character and stuff.

all I care is that the characters are Irish.

User avatar #438 to #135 - Furubatsu (07/25/2013) [-]

I'm ok when they take some creative liberties. Truth is movie and book are significantly different media, and if they tried to do it EXACTLY like the book it would be too slow paced and wouldn't work great.
I am ok when they make small or even medium changes in the events. But when they fundamentally change characters that I hate (thats why I hate third LOTR, Faramir and Denetor have only passing similarity with the book characters)
But what I hate hate, HATE is when they take a name of the book, few character names and then call it an adaptation.
Starship Troopers has NO similarity to the book. Not even in passing.
League of Extrordinary gentlemen (EEEEW)
I robot - which completely turns the point of Robots from Issac Assimov upside down.

I hate those.
