FF Friday: In Which I Talk About Movies That Don’t Suck


Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.


This week’s question: What is your favorite movie?


Answer: I am terrible at seeing movies. For example, I’ve been meaning to watch The Fault In Our Stars since it came out, and I still haven’t seen it. I really liked the book. I don’t know why I can’t force myself to sit down and watch the movie. The last movie I saw was Mockingjay Part 1. I know I saw it in the movie theater, which means that I haven’t watched any movies at all this year . . .

Since I’m bad at seeing movies, I don’t have a favorite. Most of the movies I do watch are book-to-movie adaptations. If I had to pick a favorite adaptation, I’d choose The Green Mile by Stephen King. I love the book, and I was so happy that the movie didn’t suck.



The Green Mile - Stephen King

At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, along the lonely stretch of cells known as the Green Mile, killers such as the psychopathic "Billy the Kid" Wharton and the possessed Eduard Delacroix await death strapped in "Old Sparky." Here guards as decent as Paul Edgecombe and as sadistic as Percy Wetmore watch over them. But good or evil, innocent or guilty, none have ever seen the brutal likes of the new prisoner, John Coffey, sentenced to death for raping and murdering two young girls. Is Coffey a devil in human form? Or is he a far, far different kind of being?

  3. The Green Mile is such a good film. It's one of my mums favourites so I've seen it so many times. I'm really bad at seeing movies too, especially newer ones.
