I am a HUGE movie buff, I love reading about the newest movies that are coming out. One of my favorite kinds of movies are the ones that are made from books… I don’t know why I enjoy those movies so much because they’re always significantly worse than the books they are modeled after. Regardless, when I find out that there is a movie coming out that was first a book, I make sure to get out, get the book, and have it read before the movie comes out. This coming year, there are quite a few movies coming out that were first books that I am really excited to see along with other movies with really intriguing story lines that I am also really excited to see, here are just a few!
50 Shades of Grey:
I have to say, I read the first of the 50 shades series and I am truly hoping that the movies are better than the books. The books were so badly written, I found myself rewording many of the sentences to either make more sense or just be more exciting in general. I get it though; people think that it’s really exciting because the whole book is about sex. But, if any of you have ever read it, you’ll know that although it was an interesting story…relationship wise, it was really pretty bland…sex wise. I mean, I don’t know anybody that has a ‘red room of pain’ but hey, I’m sure there are plenty of people that are as kinky as Sir Christian Grey without being as creepy. Anyway, I am really looking forward to seeing the movie when it comes out in hopes that maybe they’ll make it a little bit more interesting. I’m also pretty intrigued to see what the rating of the movie will be because if they do show all of the racy scenes in the book, the movie will have to be rated X and will probably pretty much just be an extended porn. I guess we’ll all just have to wait and see what happens.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:
I have read every single Hunger Games book, and I loved them so much I finished the whole series in a week! When I had first heard what it was about, I thought it was super disturbing the whole concept of a Hunger Games is really disturbing and weird. After I had actually read the first book, I was absolutely sure that the concept of a Hunger Games is definitely disturbing but by that point, I was hooked. I had to find out everything that was going to happen. The first Hunger Games movie was really wonderful; I thought that Jennifer Lawrence was the PERFECT Katniss. She’s super fierce and badass in the movie, and she’s even that great in her real life. Understandably so, they took out a few things from the movie that happened in the book, I mean the movie was already almost 3 hours long…so I’m hoping that although they will have to take things out of this movie also, it will be as awesome as the first!
Into the Woods:
I am a huge theater fan so when I heard that they were making an Into the Woods movie I was thrilled! I love the story and I think it would be a great movie…if done well. Anna Kendrick is going to play the role of Cinderella which I think is fantastic, Meryl Streep will play the witch which is super badass, and Johnny Depp is going to play the wolf which is going to be great! I am so excited to see how they pull of this really wonderful story in a movie. If it’s anything like Les Miserables, which I was anticipating just as much, I think it’ll really be great (as long as Russell Crowe isn’t singing anywhere nearby).
Well, here are just three movies that I am really anticipating seeing, let’s hope Hollywood doesn’t disappoint!
Until Next Time,
