I read both series before the making of the films were announced, I loved the books and fell in love with the stories and characters. However the films really disappointed me.
twilight saga: this was the first young adult series I owned when I was about 14-15 years of age. These books made me love fantasy books and I couldn’t stop reading them. Now when I heard the films were being made I was so excited and even made my sister read the books and she too become a huge fan. When the films came out I didn’t LOVE them, they were okay and I sort of enjoyed watching them but I was disappointed with the lack of book content and felt a lot was missed out, and what I enjoyed reading wasn’t portrayed well onto the screen.
fifty shades of Grey: well this film was the biggest disappointment out of the two series. This was another series I read years ago! The film I felt portrayed Christian as a sexual sadist who didn’t care for Anastasias feelings, and seeing what people posted on social media about the film portraying a controlling boyfriend who beats his girlfriend up, really made me angry. I was always repeating myself and telling everyone….. Have you read the book?……. When people replied no I suggested to them that they do. The book showed more of a romance and growing relationship which was built on trust for both characters, than the sex that the film showed. The film completely forgot the story behind the characters!
I have really strong feelings about books being made into films, I just wish other people who judge a film would read the books and understand the authors creation!
