Movies of 2012

I love going to movies. And as weird as it is I get bummed out when I’m late and miss the previews. I was scanning the new movie trailers for 2012. The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, and Breaking Dawn part two are what I’m most excited for. Though they have an unfair advantage because I bought, read, and loved the books before they were made into cinematic magic.

So my question is this, do you find that you enjoy movies more that are modeled after a novel? Because I often find that I do. Even television shows are more enjoyable if they were a book series first (namely Pretty Little Liars). I can’t decide if I’m more excited for certain films because I read the book first (in which case the author should get more credit than the actors), or if the movies I like are just in the same categories as the books I enjoy reading. I’m not really sure if that made sense, and if it did it was probably as clear as mud, haha.

What movies are you excited for? (HINT: The Hunger Games…)


  1. i hate missing the previews too!
    i have a theory that they make movies patterned after books because hollywood can't think of anymore good stories to tell. they're all in the books

  2. Seriously! I swear all the huge movies of the year are either books or comics. Even the notebook and all those cute romantic ones are books.

  3. I think books make the best movies.

  4. Alice,

    I do too. And I think your book would make a great movie!
