Top ten tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where the people of the blogverse do some spotlighting in groups of ten, ocassionally (*ahem* often *ahem*) pushing the rules to the limits. In the best ways.
1. The Princess Bride.
Just preapre yourself for the film of your life.
2. Howls Moving Castle.
One of my all time favourite movies, I fell in love with all the characters upon watching and then all over again upon reading.
3. Pride and Prejudice.
My favourite adaptation of P&P- I love the actors, the costume... it's near perfect.
4. I capture the Castle.
I Capture the Castle gives me such a wonderful feeling of nostalgia- I need to rewatch.
Arrietty, based on The Borrowers, is a really interesting adaptation- it doesn't follow the storyline all that closely, but I found it didn't matter. It is visually and musically stunning, and I just loved it.
6. Jane Eyre.
This is the only full adaptation of Jane Eyre I've ever seen- I'm currently reading the book and appreciate this all the more because I did not hate Rochester in the film, and he is an assy twit in the book.
7. The Hunger Games.
I was so impressed by this adaptation- it's a difficult book to bring to the screen but I felt it was done just about as well as it could have been, and think the actors fitted their roles very well.
8. Little Women.
I certainly like Laurie a lot more in the film. I think that's all I need to say- he makes me swoon every time.
9. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.
I like this a lot more than the book, which I do really like- the film just hits me harder and was the first (currently in about five) films that made me cry. It was only a little.
10. The ABC murders.
Both this and the book had me on tenterhooks and I really liked how the suspense from the book crossed over to the movie length episode.
