I feel like i’m the last person to have seen this movie. Every blogger i know and friend i have has already been to an early screening of Love, Simon – and to be honest, i have been gutted that i’ve had to wait so long. At the earliest chance i got i took myself off to the cinema and cried my way through the movie.
I feel like I’ve been waiting months and months for Wonder to be released. Back in the summer, as I was highly anticipating this movie, I picked up the book ahead of time. I knew that Stephan Chbosky was set to direct the movie, and as one of my favourite people in the entire world, I knew that along with loving the book and him on board the movie, I was bound to love it.
The time has come when i feel like everyone who wants to has read or seen Fantastic Beasts by J.K. Rowling. It has easily been one of the biggest movies of the year as we were thrust back in to the Wizarding World, something we have all be hoping for, for a long time. I managed to see the movie during the first weekend of its release, and i’ve recently just finished the screenplay. Here are my thoughts on both of them, what i liked and didn’t and what my hopes are for this world! (Contains spoilers).
There is always the age old question when you find out a book has a movie deal that is
“Is it actually going to do it justice?”
We all know that there are plenty of movie adaptations that have not done the book justice at all (*cough* I Am Number Four) but there are plenty that excel all expectations and make a reader beyond happy when they see their favourite story come to life on the screen. Me Before You was definitely one of those for me.
