Dolores Claiborne Book vs Movie

This underrated Stephen King book was adapted into a movie starring Kathy Bates and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Even though we get great performances, there is something lacking and some changes made which cause me to not like the movie as much as the book.

Joe Book vs Movie (2013)

Joe is a novel by Larry Brown that was adapted into a movie starring Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan. Everyone in this movie delivers an amazing, real performance. But are these performances enough to make me say the movie wins over the book?

The Phantom of the Opera book vs movies (1925 & 2004)

This novel is more of a horror story than the romance Andrew Lloyd Weber turned it into. Having said that, the musical is surprisingly close to the book! The Lon Chaney stays true to the horror side of the story, but that movie has its own differences in regards to speeding up the story. Listen to how all three compare!

This memoir was adapted into a movie starring Woody Harrelson and Brie Larson. The movie is a faithful adaption, but it leaves some details out that are key in the book.

Matchstick Men Book vs Movie

This Ridley Scott movie starring Nicholas Cage and Sam Rockwell was adapted from the novel by Eric Garcia.
