Musing Mondays (BIG)

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about movies …

How do you react to movies made of your favourite books (or even not-so-favourite books)? Do you look forward to seeing them, or avoid them? Do you like to have read the book before seeing the movie?

Okay, this is really an easy one for me. As a general rule, I don’t really much care for movies based on books that I’ve read. The exception: Harry Potter. But this is really because the movie is never as good as the book, not even close in a lot of situations. I can even tell you that I was disappointed in the 6th HP movie recently because the books is just that good … the movie was bound to pale in comparison in my opinion. I prefer to read the book before I see the movie, but I don’t force myself to wait to see the movie if I want to see it bad enough.
