Have you ever read a book and said: “I sure wish they would make this into a movie”? I have a lot but the one I’m going to talk about today, I actually saw the movie then read the book.
I’m talking about “Jurassic Park” by Michael Crichton. I remember when “Jurassic Park” came to the movie theaters. There had been so much hype that we went early just to get tickets. As far as all the talk about how the movie was going to be revolutionary, they were right. I remember sitting in the theater when the actors all saw the dinosaurs for the first time. I thought to myself: Wow, what if this could really happen! It looked so real!
If I’m not mistaken, I think I saw “Jurassic Park” about 3-4 times at the movie theater (yes, I love seeing movies over and over). But then I decided to read the book. I was at a point in my life where I really didn’t read much unless it was in a quick magazine but when I found out the there was a book, I just had to read it.
Wow! The book was wonderful and after reading it I kept thinking to myself: “I wish they had included this scene and this scene.” I went on to read “Lost World” which I thought was just as good.
So do you have a book that you wish they would make into a movie? Or have you read a book that they did make a movie about? Did you like the movie version or not? I would love to know what you think.
Big Hugs and Have a Happy Weekend!
Let’s Make A Movie!
