The Monday Poll: Worst Book-to-Movie Adaptation

Chinon 8mm Movie Camera by SPDPGood morning, Hub readers!

Last week we asked which monster from YA literature you thought was most horrifying. Our winner, with 29% of the vote, was the anthropophagi from The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey. Second place went to Occo from Happenstance Found by P.W. Catanese (21%), third to the grievers from The Maze Runner by James Dashner (20%), and fourth to the hollowgeist from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

The movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby came out this weekend. Critics seem to dislike it, but it’s doing well in the popular opinion, which raises the question of what makes a “good” or “bad” movie. That got us thinking: which movie based on a YA book do you think was the worst adaptation? Vote in the poll below or leave a comment if we’ve left off a title you thought was truly terrible.

  1. I actually found the Beautiful Creatures book to be impossible to get through, but found the movie quite enjoyable. The Lightning Thief, on the other hand, had so much potential as a movie and it just did not meet it. It wasn’t a terrible movie, but compared to what it could have been, I thought it failed miserably. We’ll see if the sequel is any better. I don’t have high hopes.
