Books to Blockbusters – that don’t disappoint

 Books to Blockbusters

By Rebecca Reed and Sarah Kneath

When a movie release is announced and it’s been adapted from a book, there’s always a lot of conversation about it. Who will play the lead character(s)? How will they film *that* scene? And inevitably… Will it be as good as the book?

We’ll admit that we’re a pretty cynical bunch here at Ziffit.com HQ, that’s why we’ve been racking our brains to think of some adaptions that didn’t disappoint and make us want to hunt down the screenplay writers and re-read them the entire book cover to cover – pointing out all the mistakes. (We look to you “The Golden Compass” and dare we say it “The Da Vinci Code” …)

As you can see, it’s pretty sparse – so feel free to let us know your thoughts and if we’ve missed any.


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games

“I volunteer as tribute!” A well-known phrase uttered by one of the most heroic female literary role models in this modern age. Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire, the Mockingjay. Thanks to the film, it propelled Jennifer Lawrence straight into the spotlight. There are subtle differences from page to screen in the first of the trilogy, these were put in to make sure the film flowed. The Hunger Games movie and book trilogy do stand as equals and in our opinion are up there with another obvious teenage fiction series, Harry Potter, although we don’t think we will be seeing a theme park around The Hunger Games trilogy. That may be too scary and dangerous.


The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

One of the greatest science fiction novels all except the Star Trek/Star Wars sagas, when this popular tale was turned into a film, people were super excited. There are differences in the book and movie, even to the point where parts of the movie do not feature in the books. The film stands out with its brilliant casting of Alan Rickman as Marvin the Robot, but if you prefer to curl up with the book, we highly recommend it just for the differences in story that swallows Arthur Dent.


Holes by Louis Sachar

Holes

Stanley Yelnats, the name that resonates with so many children, whether that be from the film or the book. Some students may have studied this in school, most of us did (definitely showing our age here – gulp!). We spent many a lesson analysing each chapter and then out rolled the TV and we got to watch the film starring the child superstar Shia LaBeouf. The book and movie are pretty much identical, the changes are minimal, just a few character tweaks, which gives the film a touch of reality, this makes it a great book to movie adaptation.


Coraline by Neil Gaiman

The book and film for this are equally as creepy and have left some of us in the office with nightmares clearly some will never recover from. From the books to the movie, there were a few minor changes which we reckon was all part of making it less scary for their target audience. However, the “other mother” will remain a terrifying character in our eyes – in both versions!


Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

One of our all-time favourite films, admittedly some of us did read the book after we had watched the films. However, Steven Spielberg didn’t miss much out, and with many books to movie adaptations, it is very hard to fit the story into a 2-hour film. The book creates all the tension and the horror in the exact same way the film does. You begin the story with the scepticism of “this is going to go well”. A few characters from the book had their roles switched for the movie, however, we all agree that Lex is equally as irritating in page form and on-screen.


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

What a book – what an absolutely breath-taking, wonderful and heart-breaking book. When it was announced that this was being made into a film, we admit, we were worried… Luckily the film lives up to our expectations. The cast are perfect and capture the relationships so well, particularly the relationship between Liesel and Hans (played by the incredible Geoffrey Rush, of Pirates of the Caribbean fame). It has just the right amount of melancholy but that all too powerful undertone of hope. Both are tear-jerkers and both will leave you with “wet-neck”.


Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

This is a slightly different one, as it’s actually memoirs of the life of Louis Zamperini, who was an Olympics distance runner in the 1930’s, later commissioned in to the United States Army Air Force during World War Two.

The movie was produced and directed by Angelina Jolie and written by the Coen Brothers, so naturally there was a lot of hype surrounding it. Zamperini is played by Jack O’Connell (yep, for those old enough to remember, he played Cook in Skins back in the day). The film is powerful and sticks (for most parts) to the truth and doesn’t suffer from that little bit of glitter that Hollywood always tries to sprinkle on a lot of biographical films. If anything, it’s not gritty enough – with some criticising the movie for not detailing the harrowing experience the stranded soldiers experienced at sea. And for some part, we agree – the book is harrowing and at times quite disturbing, but the film falls slightly short of that.


A Theory of Everything/ Travelling to Infinity by Jane Hawking

Much like “Unbroken” this is again a biographical movie. The Theory of Everything was adapted from the memoir of Jane Wilde Hawking, ex-wife to theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. Okay – we’ll admit, we’ve not read Hawking’s ‘Theory of Everything’, we’re just not that clever. Some of us (okay one of us) has read Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen. The film perfectly captures the lives of the two young students perfectly. Their journey as they struggle to come to terms with Stephen’s illness. The critically acclaimed movie was nominated for loads of awards and earned Eddie Redmayne the coveted award of Best Actor at the Oscar Academy Awards. Now we’re not saying you have to read the book with this one, but we’d definitely recommend the film.

 

There are of course other books to movies that are great and are many people favourites. So in the interest of scope, we’ll just give them an honourable mention here:
The Godfather, The Shining, The Notebook, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the Gene Wilder version, not Johnny Depp’s (sorry)…

Never mind “don’t judge a book by its cover” the key thing to remember is not to judge a book by its movie. Tell us your favourite movie adaptations and why in the comments.

The Great British Christmas Declutter

The Great Christmas Declutter

 

Wasteful Brits purge homes of 66 million bin-bags of stuff in preparation for Christmas 

  • Our research finds a third of Brits clear out at Christmas to create space for new gifts
  • The UK receives 81 million unwanted presents each year
  • One in 10 of these gifts end up in landfill

The extent of Christmas waste is revealed, with the latest figures show UK households are set to clear out a massive 66 million bin-bags worth of stuff – and that’s just in preparation for the festive season.

We found that almost two-fifths (38%) of British households will roll up their sleeves for a pre-Christmas clear out, with a third (33%) of Brits confessing this is purely to create space for new gifts.

Despite purging their homes to make space, almost two-thirds of people surveyed are expecting to receive unwanted gifts that they will never use.

In fact, most Britons receive a total of 81 million unwanted presents annually, with each household receiving three on average. Shockingly, one in 10 of these will end up in landfill.

Perfume topped the list of gifts most likely to be re-gifted or thrown away, while clothing and gadgets came in at a close second and third respectively.

Christmas Gifts

Our eCommerce Director Paul Treanor said Ziffit said: “I was surprised to find out just how many unwanted presents Brits accumulate each year. It’s also astonishing to see that, as a nation, we get rid of such a huge amount in the run up to Christmas, only to make space for more unwelcome stuff.

“Encouragingly our research showed that the nation’s first port of call was to take unwanted gifts to a charity shop. However, a third of the people we surveyed admitted they put these presents away and forget about them, while shockingly one in 10 Brits simply throw unwelcome gifts in the bin.

“We know from our customers that unwanted gifts can, in fact, be a real lifeline for your finances, with plenty of money to be made from selling presents online – and keeping them out of landfill.”

* The survey commissioned by Ziffit.com surveyed 2000 people across the UK in November 2016
