Welcome to my second blog! (The first one is about Disney.)
I started this blog for two reasons: 1) I wanted to be able to discuss non-Disney media and 2) I’ve become very interested in looking at adaptations of the things that I like, and subsequently, what I like and don’t like about them.
For a very long time, I went along with the belief that adaptations would always be inferior to the original story. But then I watched the movie version of Catching Fire, read the manga version of Kingdom Hearts, and suddenly I realized that there were a lot of adaptations that I either enjoyed as much as the source material, or even more.
So, here we are. This blog will look at different adaptations, and not just the regular book-to-movie types. I will also write posts about video games based on movies, books based on movies/games, television show adaptations, remakes, etc, etc. Are they good? Are they bad? Are they hopeless cases or pretty good? Did the changes enhance or ruin the source material? I’ll give you my opinions and I hope you’ll give me yours!
I will happily take suggestions and would also love to feature guest posts for adaptations when I’m not so familiar with the source material (i.e. the Marvel universe). Let me know if you’re interested!
On we go…
