MOVIE MADNESS: The Votes Are In!


Thank you all so much for participating in MOVIE MADNESS MARCH!  What a great month it has been, and I cannot thank you all enough for contributing, commenting, and spreading the love!  Today marks the final day of our month of movies, and with that comes the votes for the best and worst book to movie adaptations according to our readers.

I was quite surprised with the responses on this survey!  I thought that we would have a lot more duplicates that we did, but sadly we did not.  There were a couple of responses that were repeats, but for the most part, I only have a simple list of movies for you.  Without further ado, let's take a look at the results.  Those marked with an asterik are the duplicates that I have mentioned.

Lord of the Rings*

  1. I enjoyed reading the The Dead despite not being a Joyce fan, you have me curious to see the film. I think both a Room With a View and Howards End need to be on this list. Babette's Feast is a brilliant film but I don't know how true it is to Karen Blixen's novella. And if I can be so bold as to nominate a play, Six Degrees of Separation is a wonderful, wonderful film.

    1. hogglestock.com ... Do you mean the Six Degrees of Separation starring a very young Will Smith?? I saw that movie ages ago and it was a good one!
