What Are The Worst Book-To-Movie Adaptations?

Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief:

  • THE CASTING
  • They changed the plot, like wtf-
  • Where is Mr D??
  • WHY IS PERSEPHONE IN THE MOVIE?!
  • The whole scene where Luke is the ‘bad guy’. That does not happen in the books…

There are a lot more inaccurate things about the movie, but I don’t remember much… @sarcastic_badass You got a few more points?


Percy Jackson & The Sea of Monsters:

  • Again, the casting.
  • TYSON LOOKS HORRIFYING! I know he’s a cyclops and has one eye and all… but I imagined him to be cuter and more funnn.
  • Where the Laestrygonian giants?
  • Hermes.

@sarcastic_badass ADD MORE POINTS, PLES!


Divergent:

  • The casting.
  • There’s literally NO development of Tris and Tobias’ relationship.
  • WHERE ARE URIAH, MARLENE AND LYNN?!
  • I thought Cristina was gonna be black… Ok, yeah, the actress who plays her is half black, BUT STILL.
  • WHERE’S THE ROMANCE BETWEEN WILL AND CHRISTINA?!
  • What happened to Molly, Drew, Myra, and Edward?
  • Al, Peter and Caleb looked the same to me!
  • Peter bullying Tris. Bro, you call that bullying, lol?

@ScreenSloths @Bookworms Ahem, anyway, what are the worst book-to-movie adaptations you’ve seen?

My brother and I both love the Percy Jackson books. We’re both agreed that the movies are absolutely terrible.

Of course

  1. Why Is Annabeth brunette in the first movie? She was the annoying blonde girl.
  2. Grover was made the stereotypical racist black best friend for diversity point
    3.The story was rushed fehdfhjfe
  3. Where is the scene with Ares?
  4. The sea of monster was a merge of two percy jackson books.
  5. The movie didn’t start with “Look I didn’t want to be a half blood. -100000000983349 points for that
  6. Annabeth and Percy’s relationship was way to rushed? Lmao the end when they fight and she immediately falls for him then in the next movie they skip it and do something similar.
  7. Where Is Charles?
  8. Clarise is fat and not skinny!

Yeah it was a mix of the the titan’s curse and the sea of monsters.

ABSOLUTLY! The movie should have started with “look I didn’t want to be a half blood”

Omg Yes Silena! Both of them were in the sea of monsters if I remember

Omg yes! She’s also more bulky and her personality isn’t like that

I love clarrise (pjo clarrise) and not the movie one.

Also where is the scene where she puts Percy’s head in the toilet bowl?

Omg yes his Italian suit! And why did Persephone hate hades in the movie? They loved each other! Persephone is not trapped wirebnhwejw??

And I thought Percy was 12 in the first book :grinning: so how did he become 20?
