TV shows and movies are not my jam, and I'm not afraid to say it. I actually thought I would have zero to say on this topic, and I was planning on cheating and subbing something else, but I came up with a post! I'll have my pat on the back now.
Be sure to pat Tanya Patrice and Tamara on the back, too, for being the other two Musketeers in this event!
So, TV and movies. The only time I watch TV is when I'm home alone on weekends or I don't have a book that's tickling my fancy. Same with movies, and I usually only go to the movies if there's something my husband or I REALLY want to see.
With that in mind, I swear by, or want to see, the following:
Outlander! This is one I swear by. A few years ago, I gulped the first four novels down in a matter of weeks, and when I found out these characters were coming to the small screen, I was STOKED. I actually haven't gotten caught up on the second half of season one, but that's probably an achievement I'll unlock over my holiday break from work.
I didn't even realize this was a thing, but there's a Madame Bovary movie! I had a blast buddy reading this one with Heather several years ago, and I'd be tickled to see it brought to the screen. The trailer down below looks lush and fabulous, and I'll be interested to see if Emma Bovary is made to appear more sympathetic in the film than she was in the novel.
Finally, a little bit of cheating. I am DYING to see Crimson Peak, directed by Guillermo del Torro and starring Tom Yum-Yum Hiddleston , which I missed when it was in theaters. This is not based on a book, but del Torro describes it in no uncertain terms as a gothic romance. Amanda from Fig and Thistle has also confirmed this for me. Can't wait!
What have you been loving in TV and film adaptations? I can use all the help I can get picking the good ones!
