Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists over at The Broke and the Bookish. I'm sure they'd love to share your lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten list.
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow's Part 1 - While I have seen each of the Harry Potter films countless times, I haven't been completely impressed with each of them, the 1st part of Deathly Hallows was a movie for fans of the book. Personally, I would have been fine with splitting the films in half starting with Goblet of Fire.
2. The Devil Wears Prada - This is one of the few cases where I saw the film before I read the book. I really really really love the film. It's snarky and funny and has the best clothes! The book on the other hand has a more irritating version of Anne Hathaway's Andy doing less interesting things. There is a lot different between the two versions of this story, but the movie is a good time, and a great adaptation.
3. The Lion King - Does everyone remember the day you figured out the weird squiggly thing in front of the isney on the Disney logo was actually a D? What about the day you were in a high school English class, reading Hamlet and wondering where you'd heard the story before. Remember when it hit you that the first emo Prince from Denmark was really like Simba? Wasn't that a good day. Everyone go watch the Lion King. Try not to cry when there is a stampede. Hakuna Matata.
4. Pride & Prejudice (BBC Miniseries) - At the risk of sounding like a broken record - Oh, Mr. Darcy! I am in love with Colin Firth, or maybe just Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. He's fantastic here, and it's a great representation of Austen's most popular novel.
5. Everything is Illuminated - While this isn't the best adaptation I've ever seen, I think it's a beautiful film. I also think Elijah Wood is a great JSF.
6. Bridget Jones Diary - Okay, I was wrong. It is Colin Firth. A modern day retelling of Pride & Prejudice, based of the bestselling novel by Helen Fielding is a great movie for single girls everywhere. You'll laugh, you probably won't cry, but you will yell things like GO DARCY. PUNCH DANIEL IN THE FACE. Or maybe not. I don't really know you. That's what I yell, though.
7.Breakfast at Tiffany's - I don't know about you, but this is the movie that made me love the little black dress. It also made me love Audrey Hepburn, cats called Cat and Truman Capote. I love both the novella and the film, but in different ways. Overall, the movie wins out in my opinion, if just because seeing Holly Golightly makes the entire experience infinity better.
8.Julie & Julia - Food, Meryl Strep, Amy Adams. Based off of two different books, by two different woman in two different time frames. It's a fun story even if it does leave you craving all of the food in the world topped with melted butter.
I'm really picky with adaptations so I couldn't make it to 10 this week. Sorry everyone!
I can't wait to see everyone else's lists! Happy Tuesday!
