So, if you’ve been around for the last couple of years, you’ve realized that book-to-movie adaptations have become all-too-popular and that there are WAY too many of them.
Book-to-movie adaptations usually stemmed from YA series becoming extremely popular, but, nowadays, it seems like every book, even if you’ve NEVER heard of it, is becoming a movie.
I know I’ve definitely gotten extremely tired of most adaptations these days.
It’s really more of a sign that the movie industry is starting to get super uncreative, not to mention that most of the ones that eventually become movies are books I haven’t even read yet or I’m just not interested in the books they’re based off of at all. The ones that I’m begging for – Looking for Alaska, Red Rising, A Court of Thorns and Roses, Eleanor & Park – are stuck in development hell while the ones I hate are being made. IT’S FINE; I’M FINE.
Personally, I barely keep up with adaptations in the first place. My family and I rarely go to the movie theaters at all, and by the time the adaptation rolls around, I’m not really in the mood to actually watch it, so I push it aside, and, as a result, time passes, and then I realize that I STILL haven’t watched it yet. Oops.
