Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book Books I Want To See Made Into Movies
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish which I am taking part in.
This week's listing was difficult because I must have read loads of books over my lifetime that I always think would make a great movie or mini-series. Anyway, I did have a go at cutting it down to a top ten.
The Subtle Knife / The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman.
I really enjoyed the "His Dark Materials" trilogy and actually enjoyed the first movie they made as well even if they did cut to much of the religious aspects out. I wanted to see the story continued in the movie media but I think based on the receipts of the first one it won't be happening.
The story in these books can get dark and depressing, but yet the novel also has kids with super powers thrown in as well. I just think these books would make cracking movies as they have so much happening.
Raise the Titanic by Clive Cussler
This film has been made before but I want to pretend it didn't exist and have it re-made as it should have be done. I mean, how can you make a movie about re-floating The Titanic with fun and adventurous characters such as Dirk Pitt and make it suck?
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
I loved this book; it just opened up the world of Oz to be seen from another viewpoint. The musical also captured my heart so I think a movie would do the same.
Armageddon The Musical by Robert Rankin
Quite simply, this is a funny novel and I mainly just want to see how a director would bring "Barry The Talking Time Sprout" to the screen.
Anyway, lets here what you all think! I suspect a lot of what you guys say may also be on my list but I did have to pick a limited 10!
