#SixForSunday – Favourite Book-To-Film Adaptations

Good morning! Today is another #SixForSunday post, hosted by the amazing Steph! This week, we’re discussing favourite film adaptations of books! I’m usually not a huge fan of book adaptations, but there have been some excellent ones too!


1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
I adore The Lord of the Rings so much! The adaptations are absolutely gorgeous and are stunning to watch – the scenery of New Zealand is perfect for the characters quests. It’s definitely one to watch over and over again.
2. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
My favourite adaptation by far, and not just because there’s a lot of Draco. Half Blood Prince was beautiful to watch, with brilliant cinematography and its dark scenes. I also cried a ton watching this one.
3. Captain America
I’ve read a couple of the Captain America comics, and of course love the movie adaptations. They’re so good, with tons of action and plenty of heart! Plus Chris Evans…gorgeous!
4. A Clockwork Orange
A Clockwork Orange
is one of those adaptations which is like Marmite – you either love it or you hate it. As a fan of the book – especially the like, language o droogs – I was a fan of the cinematography and the crazed way Alex was shown to be. It’s definitely an interesting take on society.
5. Of Mice and Men
I’m sure everybody must have read this in their English Literature classes at school right? A tear-jerker for sure! The film adaptation of the book didn’t leave a dry eye in sight, and I love how well it kept to the book.

6. Death Note
NOT the Netflix film. That was absolutely garbage! No, I’m talking about the original live-action Japanese adaptation. Ryuk was brilliantly animated, and the characters were so perfect compared to the manga.


What are your favourite film adaptations?

  1. I’m pretty certain I watched the film version of Of Mice and Men when I studied it at GCSE. I don’t remember if I like it though.

    If TV films count, one of my favourite book to film adaptations is ITV’s Pollyanna (Eleanor H Porter) with Amanda Burton and Georgina Terry. I also love their adaptation of Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian.
