When I finally saw the final movie with the music in there, it was kind of overwhelming. It was a very gratifying experience to see that it was done with such regard for the book. It retains the essential ingredients of the book, while adding all of the visual stuff that a movie needs but that a book sadly cannot have.
Why are books almost always better than the movie? The characters are never badly acted, the soundtrack is whatever you want it to be, and 35-year-olds don't play high schoolers. So give yourself the cred to say the original was way superior, and read these 10 Summer Blockbusters before they reach a screen near you.
