To commemorate the holiday season I am going to make a string of special posts inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas. This year the countdown will be on my favourite film adaptations of books. Keep in mind that in most cases the printed version is still better the film but this list is for films that have done a great job at capturing the spirit of the novel or are just purely entertaining. So enjoy and let the fun begin:)
12 The Client
11 Dracula
10 Breakfast at Tiffany's
9 The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
This book holds a special place in my heart. I grew up reading the series and when I heard that there was going to be a movie adaption I turned to my sister and said "SHUT THE FRONT DOOR"!!! To say that I was excited about this development would be the understatement of the century. The first installment of this great series lived up to the hype. The movie was as magical as the books were and the imagery and scenery were awesome. The movie was exceptionally well cast with Aslan, the witch and the four Pevensie children being pretty much as I imagined them in the stories. Great movie for any occasion and a great compliment to the books which were amazing. Loved it!!
