I have been offered this unique opportunity to share this video clip to promote Insurgent's upcoming release to DVD. I saw Insurgent in theater after taking a standardized test all day long at school. My friends and I went to the opening release showing at 8:00. We figured that the movie would be popular even in our small town, so we showed up to the theater early. We were the first ones there and the only ones there for a long time. Finally around 7:30 the theater filled up. I really enjoyed Insurgent. It makes a few changes from the book, but in some ways help me understand the book better. I remember when I read the book I got confused with character names. You can read my review here. I'm looking forward to watching Insurgent a second time on DVD when it releases, August 4th, 2015.
Some of My Favorite Book to Movie Adaptations:
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
This honestly is one of my all time favorite books. It was one of the first books I ever reread. I saw the movie first and then fell in love with the novel. I still love to watch the movie. I enjoy seeing Claire and Henry grow as a couple in their unique love story.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This movie also stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. I read this book before I saw the movie and it is a really tear jerker, but a beautiful love story.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
The Book Thief also tops the list as one of my all time favorite books. The movie is not quite as good as it misses out on some of the depth that the book has, but it still is a good movie.
Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
I loved all the Twilight movies, but Breaking Dawn Part 2 is by far my favorite. I read all these books while I was in 8th grade. There were many times I would be reading during class and the teacher would have to ask me to pay attention. They were hard to put down.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
This was such a sad, but beautiful movie. I hope they will make Where she Went also because the ending left a huge cliffhanger. Even though I read the books and know what happens I would love for it to play out on screen.
I would have to say by far that Divergent is my favorite novel and movie, but I enjoyed Insurgent also and I'm impatiently waiting for Allegiant to be released in theaters. I love this trilogy and the stars of these movies have made them amazing.
