Sometimes a Great Notion Book vs Movie

The Beguiled Book vs Movie Original vs Remake

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 Glass Castle book vs movie

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.
