Road Trip Wednesday

Time for another Road Trip Wednesday courtesy of the YAHighway!  For this weekly event bloggers are invited to answer a prompt on their blog, and then take a trip around the blogosphere to see what everyone has to say.



This week's topic:  What Movie Do You Wish Had Been a Book First?


This is hard.  My favorite movies were books first!  All of them! AAAAAAAH!!!

Okay, there was one film I saw not too long ago that, as soon as I walked out of the theater, I asked my sister if there was a book.


Avatar.

James Cameron created the most beautiful and awe inspiring world for his creatures.  It was breathtaking, and having no knowledge of the movie before I saw it, I immediately assumed it had been a book first.

Because where else would you find a world like Pandora?

If anyone gets a wild hair and decides to write one, I'll happily read it.  I'd love to lose myself in Pandora for longer than a two hour stretch.

Is it sad that I haven't seen this movie yet? Who do you think could've magically captured that world in a book? JK Rowling maybe?

I've seen AVATAR, but I'm not a fan. I thought the movie was gorgeous to look at, but about 40 minutes too long (and I'm not keen on 3D anyway). I know, I know. I get a lot of flack for that opinion, lol. ;D

Intersting answer, though! James Cameron did a good job on the worldbuilding aspect, and there are so many stories and POVs you could explore within Pandora.

That would be, interesting*

Holly Dodson said...

Abby, I think I loved the movie so much just because of the world building. The plot was meh. It was just so *beautiful*.

Avatar's a good one. I think mine would have to be STICK IT! because the dialogue was so great and I loved Haley's voice as the narrator.

SUCH a good choice. Even though this movie was absurdly hokey on so many levels, I LOVED IT!!! (And Sam Worthington is way too hot... Seriously... Burns the retinas hot.)

I'd love to see this as a book... Le sigh.

Yeah I'm going to say it, I didn't like Avatar...I thought it was VERY VERY PRETTY but I thought the writing was awful.

That's because James Cameron wrote it when he was a teenager and it totally showed.

You hate me now don't you. I knew it it. I should have kept my mouth shut.

Sam Worthington is to pretty to be kept in a book too.

Right now the on ethat jumps to mind would be JUNO. But it would have been banned in Texas :)

Sorry, couldn't resist.
