There are some books that gain so much attention that movies are based off them. People who are unfamiliar with the books, assume that it’s just a movie. But people who are avid readers are familiar with the book and they hold very high standards for the movie. It’s understandable because reading allows you to imagine scenarios that almost feel real. When, the movie version takes a different direction than the book, it causes an outrage and change the whole experience for them. Altering the original version of a story can be irritating especially if it changes the whole story.
Movie producers are well aware of the plot, themes and characters that make the story. They find ways to preserve the original story, but it can be challenging to make a movie exactly like the book. Some changes are made to the storyline but as long as the key moments remain the same, it’s not that big of a deal. In fact, it makes the movie original in its own right. Some of the popular books turned into movies are the Harry Potter series, the Lord Of The Rings series, the Hunger Games, the Twilight saga, the Notebook and many others.
Movies are entertaining and most people are more likely to watch a movie rather than read a book. It all boils down to preference. Reading helps you develop your imagination and creativity, whereas movies have the ability to evoke an emotional response. The background music and acting can make you feel attached to the characters and connected to the story. Books and movies have their own ways of keeping people entertained. When you start reading a good book, it can be hard to put the book down. The same goes for watching movies. Once, the story gets interesting, it’s hard to stop. You want to know how the story ends. Movies based off books are made only because of fans can’t stop talking about the cool story they just read.
