Top 10 Books That I Liked A Bit More As Movies

10 For 10 Mettel Ray

I’m starting this week off by bringing you ten book to movie adaptations that I thought worked wonderfully. All these books are okay, some are actually very good, but others simply aren’t as strong. The point of the Top 10 list is that the movies were better than books. Yes, I love some adaptations a bit more than the books and that is rare. By the way, I’ve been reading less books lately, so if you have any recommendations to…

What that means is that…

Commercial Break #31

Images: 1) Still from Macbeth, 2) Floral by Daniel Forero Another week has passed, I’ve survived a cold (barely as I’m still suffering slightly), I’ve worked six days in a row (half of it while being ill), I’ve seen my second favorite movie this year (from 2014 though, but it still counts) and I’ve thought about making the Commercial Break into a weekly feature uploaded on Wednesdays (or Thursdays because I need a fallback in case I mess up).
