Movie renditions of novels: sometimes you love them and sometimes you hate them. And there are some renditions which are bound to make you wonder how the author feels about them (is J.R.R. Tolkien rolling over in his grave as we speak?), so for our Literary Tidbit Tuesday I have a list of authors who, for one reason or another, disliked the movie versions that came out of their books. Warning: you may be shocked by what you learn!
Stephen King openly stated that he didn’t like how director Stanley Kubrick went about recreating his book The Shining for the movie screen. He felt Kubrick focused too much on creepy characters as opposed to the creepiness of the hotel itself. I found this surprising as this is one film I’ve always really liked! What do you true Stephen King fans think?
