Top 10 Books That Deserve Another Movie Adaptation

Despite requests from moviegoers for the studios to stop releasing remakes, they continue to be fired. From an audience point of view, a fresh start is often less than the real deal, but it usually finances the studios. But surely some movies have to be redesigned?

This is a list of 10 books that have been made before the movie but which need some refinement. Sometimes this is because the film was unfaithful to the source of the story, and sometimes, it is because the film was just bad. In any case, the films on the list must be redone.

10. The Day of Triffids

John Wyndham’s book The Day of the Triffids (1951) is a post-apocalyptic novel about plants called Triffids, which begin to kill and eat people. It sounds like Little Shop of Horrors (1986) has no songs, but in the case of Wyndham, the majority of humanity is blinded by meteor showers. This allows people to easily choose the Triffids, which, unlike Audrey II, are able to move around.

Revered as an old sci-fi novel, it was transformed into a film (1962) and two TV series (1981 and 2009), none of which make the story fair. It also partially promoted 28 Days Later (2002); they both start with the main character waking up in the hospital to find that the world as they knew it was over. Unfortunately, the 1962 film is a loose fit and ends with Triffid’s silver coin becoming salty. The first BBC series is usable but up-to-date, while the second is marred by bad text and time-consuming work. Triffids Day is long gone to get used to it. [1]

9. Something Wicked This Way Comes 

Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962) tells the story of a bad party coming to town when two young men, Jim Nightshade and Will Halloway, are spotted. Ray Bradbury’s story is immediately interesting and dark, with characters like Mr. Dark aptly, a carnival leader, and Dust Witch, a blind fortune teller. Something Bad is a full-blown Halloween read, but the 1983 movie is not the perfect Halloween movie.

Directed by Jack Clayton, produced by Disney, and with the screen of Bradbury himself, the film is a worthwhile attempt to fix the book but is ultimately lacking. Failing to replicate the horrible spirit that saturates the book. And it doesn’t have important scenes (probably because of the special effects limits at the moment), especially the area where the Dust Witch searches Jim and Will with a hot air balloon. The modern version, which is not Disney’s, would be better suited for capturing book tricks. [2]

8. The Dark is Rising

It is a pity that Susan Cooper’s good familiarity with The Dark Is Rising (1973), one of the best fiction novels, has not been done. Similar to Harry Potter (1997), but darker, better, and written many years earlier. The book begins with 11-year-old Will Stanton learning that he belonged to an ancient group called the Old Ones. He then embarked on a campaign to eradicate the evil magic of Darkness.

The book is popular with children and adults alike, but the version of the film, The Seeker (2007), was heavily focused (like 14% of Rotten Tomatoes). It does not have the heart of a book and makes it easy and twists the meaning of the story. One reviewer correctly put it this way: “No one who liked those books could look at them with disdain, and never feel drunk.” The Dark is Rising deserves another movie — one that stays true to the story rather than twists it into a complex Christian and Potter-ized chaos.

7. Journey to the centre of the Earth

Jules Verne’s Journey to the centre of the Earth (1864) is another ancient science fiction novel. The title summarizes, but here’s a snapshot: a group of intrepid explorers descend on the extinct volcano (guess) in the center of the earth, where they discover a subterranean atmosphere.

The story produced many movies directly related to DVD and TV, as well as two great movies. The 1959 film is funny and silly but extremely creative. The 2008 film is based on the clever 3-D effects and is flawed in the novel’s vision. While Brendan Fraser enjoys watching (when is he?) As a team leader, it sounds like a child film rather than an exciting annual story. There have already been many negative attempts to fix this novel; Can anyone go and find you well during this time?

6. Eragon

Published on its own, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon was taken over by the publishing house in 2003. Despite criticism of the release of Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, a fictional novel about a boy who gets a dragon’s egg spent 121 weeks on The Lord of the Rings. New York Times’ Most Popular Children’s List. A few years later, in 2006, the movie version came out, but fans were very disappointed.

Everything about the film, from script to acting to character building, was criticized. But in recent years, hope for a renewed sense of urgency has intensified. When Disney bought 21st Century Fox, they acquired copyrighted material by a failed adaptation such as Percy Jackson and Eragon’s Rick Riordan series. Fan demand has convinced Disney to lightly illuminate Percy Jackson’s re-launch, and many people hope the same can happen to Eragon. Despite the online enthusiasm and support of Paolini himself, Disney did not announce anything — but hope lasts forever.

5. 30 days of nights

So, this is a comic book rather than a book, but it is still counted for the purposes of this list. The 30 Days of the Night have a good foundation. The danger of vampires in the sun means that there is no better place to go than in the Alaskan city so far north that in winter, the sun does not rise for 30 days. Steve Niles originally put the idea as a film but, after being rejected, went down the aisle of a comic book. After the comedy success of 2002, it was transformed into a film by Josh Hartnett who starred in 2007.

Ben Templesmith’s Ben Templesmith style spreads a sense of shock throughout the pages. The film fails to capture this horror. Although it is full of blood and the jumps are scary, vampires (howling for some reason) are not so scary. And, finally, it has changed from a horror movie to an action flick. The film has garnered a few defenders, but they also don’t realize how ridiculous the final show is.

Some familiarity may take on the features of the 2007 film (the action, the feeling of separation, the fact that the winter film sounds like it was set in the winter) but not coincide with the times of stupid action.

4. I, Robot

Isaac Asimov I ‘s short story collection, Robot (1950) had a dramatic impact, but a 2004 film with the same name, with good reason, ended in memory. Asimov’s book introduces the concept of “The Three Laws of Robots,” which changed the discussion about the behavior of artificial intelligence.

A film directed by Will Smith has taken on parts of the novel, such as the title Dr. Susan Calvin and the Three Laws, and co-produced them into an action film featuring dozens of killer robots. While deadly robots may be cool, not me, Robot is about. There is so much more to Jeff Vintar’s original screen embedded in the movie than Asimov’s short stories. This makes it sound like the film was already calling the name I, Robot. The success of sci-fi movies such as Ex Machina (2014) and Arrival (2016), which prioritize clever sites beyond hitting objects, proves that there is a craving for a film genre that could be a reliable familiarity with I, Robot.

3. The Dark Tower

Many of Stephen King’s films could have made this list, but Dark Tower (2017) is a far cry from unrealistic expectations. The King’s oroginal series Dark Tower (1982-2004) is what you get when you put Westerns in a blender with The Lord of the Rings and the Arthurian myth. The resulting mixture is often regarded as King’s magnum opus. For a long time, there was a need for fans to change the series, but Nikolaj Arcel’s film was not what they had imagined.

It received only 16% of Rotten Tomatoes, the film having completely failed. The story is summed up in just 95 minutes, not nearly long enough to form a complex world based on literature. As a result, the film is a misconception that fails to adequately cover the story of The Last Gunslinger and his pursuit of the book The Man in Black. It may be very soon with the new familiarity, and the bad taste of the 2017 movie is still going on, but this popular series is worth a shot again soon. [8]

2. World War Z

Marc Forster’s 2013 film World War Z takes the title of Max Brooks’ 2006 book and nothing more. J. Michael Straczynski was hired to translate a book, made up of individual accounts that brought together (according to the text below) the discussed history of the zombie war, into a film. Straczynski’s view clashes with Forster’s, however, with the screenwriter, “Marc wanted to make a great, immense film that was not very clever and had great episodes of action in it,” raising the question, “Why is the choice really good, a clever book?”

Straczynski, who could not bring Forster’s thought-provoking viewpoint, was replaced by Matthew Michael Carnahan, who discarded the interview style, that is, something that made the book even more interesting. The resulting film sees Brad Pitt roaming the abyss, the CGI world of zombies. A loyal acquaintance of Brooks’ novel can combine fun and intriguing storytelling with the sound of pure zombie-type air. [9]

  1. I am Legend

Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel I Am Legend is an old genre of both horror and sci-fi, but no film has captured its genius. We follow Robert Neville, the last surviving vampire survivor, as he tries to develop a cure and, you know, can be killed by vampires.

The first adapter, The Last Man on Earth (1964), features the horror film star Vincent Price. But sadly, compiling these two myths was not a success. Matheson contributed to screenplay but became so disillusioned with the film that he used the fake name Logan Swanson in the credits. As a result, the movie is chaotic, and the ending is doomed, when (spoiler notice) Neville (or Morgan in this version) fails to understand that, to the vampires, he is a famous monster.

Next, Charlton Heston starred in Omega Man (1971), so far from the book that he deserves to be called an adaptation. Instead of vampires, we have a system of mutations called the Family. The ending, too, erases the novel twist by having Neville create a solution and give it to a group of survivors before death.

Lastly Will Smith’s artist I Am Legend (2007), who spat on the face of a book. Smith’s Neville also made a cure and killed himself bravely. It concludes with a loud voice declaring that Neville is a myth of self-sacrifice for humanity, which is in stark contrast to the conclusion of the book. Can I ask someone to make a good balance of Matheson’s dark art? [10]
