Movies based on books

20 Jan

In recent years, many people have complain about how Hollywood has run out of ideas; and I completely agree.  It seems like in the past decade the only movies that have come out were either sequels, originally tv series or based on some literary work. Think about the movies that have garnered positive recognition.

Slumdog Millionaire-book

I am Legend-novella

300-graphic novel

The Town-book

Curious Case of Benjamin Button-short story

No Country for Old Men-book


Brokeback Mountain-book

All of these films have been hugely successful, gaining awards and stunning box office numbers. Where’s the recognition of the original works? Nobody seems to really care about that, but only remark upon how beautiful the movie was. I just think it’s a shame that our consumption of media has become literary-lite.
