from the pages to the big screen

a lot of movies today are based from best-selling novels. one popular example would be "a walk to remember" by nicholas sparks. another favorite is "the notebook", written by the same author. and of course, everybody knows about j.k. rowling's harry potter. when i see such movies upcoming, i usually buy the book and read it first, and then i'd go and watch the movie. and then i'd decide if the film gave justice to the book. i'd check how loyal or deviant the film was from the novel. based on your experience, do the scenes come out the way you have imagined them when you were reading?

The movie never mirrors the book accurately. Most of the time the Director overuses his artistic license and you almost end up having 2 different product. I love John Grisham novels and most if not all have been made into films. As you watch the movie you can't help wondering did i read about this episode? it certainly doesn't ring a bell.
